It's raw. It's rough. Go Viking and discover some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes without the crowds.
Experience Norway in a nutshell Winter Tour with Fjord Tours.
Ice age upon ice age has shaped the majestic landscape that stretches out in front of you.
Enjoy world-class seafood and other delicacies, made from natural ingredients just outside the door – both on land and in the sea.
When your belly is well fed, discover why the historical wharf of Bryggen is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most famous attraction in the city.
Catch the Fløibanen funicular to Mount Fløyen to get a drone-like panoramic view of the city and the fjords.
Hop on the train!
Sit back and enjoy the scenic train ride whilst climbing 106 kilometres from Bergen to Myrdal, the uppermost station of the world-famous Flåmsbana Railway.
Numerous experts have even described Flåmsbana as the world’s most beautiful train journey.
The one-hour descent from Myrdal takes you comfortably from 867 to only 2 metres above sea level.
The journey goes through 20 short tunnels, untouched valleys, and deep ravines – all the way down to Flåm in the innermost part of the Aurlandsfjord.
Make sure to look out on both sides to see the untouched white fairy tale landscape with frozen waterfalls that resemble giant glass sculptures, like the Kjosfossen waterfall which provides the Flåm Railway with electric power.
No surprise that these surroundings were part of the inspiration for Disney’s Frozen.
It's pure. It's silent. It's powered by the very forces of nature you sail in.
Go on an unforgettable fjord cruise on the Nærøyfjord with a hybrid electric ship made of light carbon fibre, designed and constructed in the area.
Its zigzag shape is meant to remind you of the typical footpaths you can see in the mountainsides along the fjord.
Or get even closer to the forces of nature on a RIB. Some tours even include a stop at Undredal Stølsysteri where you can taste delicious handcrafted goats’ cheese.
There are also numerous other activities to try in and around Flåm.
Hungry for more?
The brewery Ægir in Flåm has several times been awarded “The best brewery pub in Norway”.
Their highly acclaimed handcrafted beer is brewed with roots in true Norse traditions. What they serve here is representative of the new enthusiasm for local food and drink in Fjord Norway – heaven for foodies.
Join a fjord safari on the Aurlandsfjord followed by a Viking dinner at Ægir.
Take a walk in the sky!
From Flåm, join a short scenic bus tour to the Stegastein viewpoint. The elegant wooden structure stretches 30 metres straight out into the void about 600 metres above the Aurlandsfjord.
The bold lookout point was shaped by architects Todd Saunders and Tommie Wilhelmsen as part of the 18 Norwegian Scenic Routes.
This is just one of many highlights where raw nature meets cool architecture in Fjord Norway.
Step it up! Put on your snowshoes and follow the safe tracks of your guide – and maybe even a local fox – up the hillside to get a bird’s-eye view of the fjords.
Meet a Viking.
Are you up for a unique experience?
In the Viking village Njardarheimr you can explore the old Norse way of living and participate in typical badass Viking-like activities. The village is situated in Gudvangen, in the innermost part of the famous Nærøyfjord which is included in UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
Hit the slopes!
Less than an hour’s bus ride from Gudvangen, close to Voss and Bergen, you will find the skiing paradise Myrkdalen – the largest ski resort in Fjord Norway with 21 slopes.
Taste the World’s best cheese.
74 kinds of Norwegian cheese received medals in the World Cheese awards in Bergen in 2018. The overall winner was Fanaost from the producer Ostegården, just south of Bergen.
In 2016, the cheese champion of all time turned out to be Kraftkar from Tingvollost, also in Fjord Norway.
Sleep in historic surroundings.
There are plenty of nice places to stay, but for that little extra, try one of the most historic and stately hotels in the fjord region, like Fretheim Hotel in Flåm or Fleischer’s Hotel in Voss.
The farm boutique hotel 29/2 Aurland is also a great choice for the seasoned traveller.
At the end of the day, what is a better warm-up for a dinner of local food and a good night’s deep sleep than snuggling up in front of your hotel’s crackling fire?
