Breathing the Norwegian fjords and world heritage sites. We took a day trip from Bergen - Myrdal - Flam (lovely small town) - Gudvangen - Voss and back to Bergen. Scenic routing from Myrdal to The famous Flam. Along the cruising, lots of old villages, some over hundred years old. Great experience traveling by train, fjord cruise and bus in... More

An efficient and easy way to see wonderful scenery and the city of Bergen. The express trains were comfortable and modern, the Flam railway was a fabulous trip through the mountains and the fjord cruise was beautiful. We stayed overnight in Bergen which we loved.

We have already done quite a bit of train travel, so weren't overly excited that the majority of this trip is sitting looking out a window, but the scenery was beautiful. I would prefer to go either when there's lots of snow, or in the spring/summer, much of what we saw was all brown and not so nice. It would... More

We were fortunate to take Norway in a Nutshell on a beautiful, sunny, winter day. We took the round trip from Bergen. We rode by train, bus, boat and then train. I would say that the most beautiful scenery is on the boat where you are in the narrowest fjord in Norway called the Naeroyfjord. The Flam train is also... More

Amazing adventure through beautiful Norwegian countryside but for exactly the same tour on exactly the same transport as the NIN tour we saved around 400 NOK per person by buying on the day each ticket ourselves. Definitely could have saved even more if we'd have booked further in advance. Tourist information told us that in the busy season NIN might... More

I Saud words fail me because our holiday was absolutely amazing, it was everything we hoped for and more. From embarcation to disembarcation back home. Ship, staff, accommodation, facilities on board were very good. Only one tour was disappointing and that was the Atlantic Road one. We were told there would be stops to take in the amazing road and... More

The Norway in a Nutshell tour is a magical way of seeing Norway in a short time frame. We took the train out of Norway and rode through the Buskerud valley's for a quick stop in Aal. This town had a wonderful charm and nice shopping. We continued over the pass down through magestic mountain passses near waterfalls down to... More

Doing the Norway in a Nutshell tour was amazing. The scenery was breathtaking and the boat ride in the third was nice. Luckily, it was sunny and the temperature was mild the day we did the tour, so it worked out well for us and we saw a lot.

“The gladdest moment in human life, me thinks, is a departure into unknown lands.” – Sir Richard Burton We highly recommend relying on Norway in a Nutshell to plan tours of the fjords and west coast of this spectacular Scandinavian country.
