Land of the Fjords, escorted tour to Norway...
Scandinavia main menu - 0845 003 2211 or 01543 258631

Sit back and enjoy Norway’s most magnificent fjords on this top quality escorted tour. Starting in Bergen and finishing in Oslo, the well-planned itinerary takes you through some of Norway’s most stunning scenery. The tour includes cruises on both the Sognfjord and the Geirangerfjord, as well as a relaxing two-night stay in the idyllic resort of Balestrand and a ride on the spectacular Flam Railway.

Operated by our colleagues Robinson Scandinavia, with guaranteed weekly departures throughout the Summer, the tour features first class hotels and includes all meals, excursions and luggage handling, not forgetting the services of a competent, friendly tour-manager. Extra nights can be added at either end. This tour can be combined with other arrangements, and would work particularly well preceded by a full or southbound Coastal Voyage. We will be happy to discuss the options and quote accordingly.
