Norway in a nutshell®

Experience the essence of Norwegian fjords, mountains and valleys, all summed up in the most popular round trip in the country.

The most popular trip in Norway

This round trip is the most popular round trip in Norway. It takes you on a journey through some of the most beautiful scenery in Fjord Norway, and includes breathtaking experiences on the Bergen Railway, the Flåm Railway, the Aurlandsfjord, the Nærøyfjord and the steep Stalheimskleiva Road.

The tour Norway in a nutshell® is available from Bergen, Voss and Oslo all year round.

The Bergen Railway

The Bergen Railway is voted one of the world’s most beautiful train journeys. The train ride over Northern Europe’s largest mountain plateau, Hardangervidda, is spectacular and varied with view of the blue ice of the Hardangerjøkulen Glacier.

The Flåm Railway

The train journey on the Flåm Railway between Myrdal and Flåm is one of the highlights of the round trip. On the 12-mile long train ride, you will see some of the most magnificent mountain scenery Norway has to offer, with a shifting panorama of towering mountains and impressive waterfalls.

The Nærøyfjord

On the fjord cruise, you travel passed the beautiful villages of Aurland and Undredal before the boat enters the Nærøyfjord, one of the narrowest fjords in Europe. This arm of the Sognefjord is perhaps the most dramatic fjord in Norway, and is on UNESCO's World Heritage List.

The steep Stalheimskleiva Road

The Stalheimskleiva Road, which twists and turns up through 13 hairpin bends offering views of the Sivlefossen and the Stalheimsfossen waterfalls, is the steepest stretches of road in Northern Europe. Stalheimskleiva is open from May to September. In the winter months, the bus takes the new road to Voss.
