They sort out your tickets and make the bookings. The transport is good and the instructions are clear. There could be better signage though, at Voss it was hard to see the bus stop post or the bus (it pulled in behind others). It just...More

The best way to travel from Oslo to Bergen. The scenery is breathtaking, especially the Flam railway portion. The fjord cruise is also beautiful, but unfortunately for us the weather did not cooperate.
