Bergen is not only the second biggest city of Norway, it is also the gate to the fjords. So whatever you do when in Bergen, make also time for a fjord trip. Norway in a nutshell is a tailor-made tour from Fjord Tours which allows you to see the best of western Norway in a day. Would I do it again? No, not like this.
The tour is basically a ten-hour road trip which starts on the train and then goes on with bus, boat, train and another train. Do you see a lot? Yes, definitely. Did I enjoy it? Not so much. On hindsight it would be a lot more pleasant if I had organized it myself with an overnight stop in Flåm. There is a lot more to see than just changing from boat to Flåm train. The whole trip felt rushed to me and I think you can do better by taking your time with an extra day. Also note that this is not a guided tour. The package you book is only for the transportation.
Nonetheless there is a reason why this is the most popular of the fjord tours. The trip is just amazing because nature can’t get any better. We were even lucky enough to get a little bit of sunshine which made the pictures look spectacular. Yours, Pollybert
Once on board the weather started clearing up and the fjords showed themselves from their best side.
