A great day trip from Bergen. Take the train to Myrdal and enjoy some great country scenery. See snow in July and you are not far from it!! Take an enjoyable ride on the Flam railroad to the Fjord. Again beautiful country.
The scenery and experience of seeing remote hamlets along the Fjord is truly remarkable and memorable. If in Norway you must travel thru a Fjord.

We took a train from Bryggen to Voss, a bus to Gudvangen and a ferry to Flam. We stayed in Flam for one night (loved it!) then took the train to Myrdol, and another train to Oslo. While not luxury transportation, they were fine and ran pretty efficiently. This is not a tour per se, as there is no one telling you about what you are seeing for the most part. It is both transportation between Bergen and Oslo and also a terrific way to see the fjords. We chatted with other passengers, the views from all vehicles were breathtaking, and the bus driver stopped periodically to allow us to take pictures. The ferry was a bit crowded, but for about two hours, it was not unmanageable. Unless you have more time than we did to see some of the fjords, this was a pretty efficient way to see a lot of magnificent scenery in a day. It allowed great flexibility to go straight through or spend a night or more in one or two of the places and continue.

Took the three hour boat to Mostraumen and was really surprised by what a great trip it was. I figured that a three hour tour would see very little but wanted to get beyond the streets of Bergen. Wow - the scenery was beautiful and while not the largest Fjord's (from what I was told) - still worth it if your time is limited. I must have taken over 400 pictures during the trip (the nice thing about digital cameras is that you can toss the bad ones). Made for a great day and would definitely recommend this excursion!

Our family of five took the Norway in a Nutshell tour in July 2014. They have several tours and it was difficult to pick the most interesting one. With help from the tour operator we chose the one below. It is expensive and very weather dependent so we waited until we were in Bergen and then chose the best weather day and booked our trip. We left from Bergen and returned about 9 hours later. We had been warned that it might be difficult to all sit together due to the popularity of the trip and this was correct. We hurried during the transfers and everything worked out. I can't tell you my favourite leg of the trip; they were all incredible. There are photo ops everywhere. It was the highlight of our three week Scandinavian vacation.
Train Bergen–Myrdal, approx. 2 hours
The Flåm Railway, approx. 1 hour
Fjord cruise Flåm-Gudvangen, approx. 2 hours
Bus Gudvangen-Voss, approx. 1 hour
Train Voss-Bergen, approx. 1 hour
Cost in Canadian dollars $200 per person
You'll love it!

Just came back from Norway, have done Norway in a Nutshell on my own. It was more easy than I expected. Great country, divine beauty, warm people! Feel greatly impressed. This will be memories for a lifetime.
