Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • When you arrive in Oslo, your private driver will take you to your centrally located hotel. Later, embark on a walking tour of the city, passing by sites such as the Royal Palace and Aker Brygge Harbour while learning about its history from your private guide.

  • Head out of Oslo with your private driver-guide to visit the Oscarsborg Fortress. Located on two islands in the narrowest part of Oslofjord, the fortress was built in the 19th century and played a key role in defeating the German attack against Norway during World War II. After exploring the grounds and museum of the fortress, continue to nearby Drøbak, a town known for its wooden architecture and home to the house of the Norwegian Santa Claus, Julenissen.

  • Leave Oslo for Ålesund. You’ll first be driven to the Oslo train station for an unaccompanied train journey to Åndalsnes. In Åndalsnes, you’ll be met at the train station by your private driver and driven to your hotel.

  • Embark on a walking tour of the city, learning about its fascinating history and Nordic-themed Art Nouveau architecture from your private guide.

  • Spend the day out on the water, cruising from Ålesund to the Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your voyage takes you through three different fjords, each with its own distinctive landscapes, including sights like the Seven Sisters and Suitor Waterfalls. You’ll have time to explore the village of Geiranger before the three-hour return cruise journey to Ålesund.

  • Collect your rental car today for your onward journey to Loen. Make your way to the Loen Skylift base to board a cable car to bring you to the top of Mount Hove, where you can take in the panoramic views. After exploring the mountain top, return to the base via cable car and make your way to your hotel in Loen.

  • Embark on a guided kayaking tour out on the water from Loen through the inner Nordfjord. As you paddle through the fjord, your knowledgeable guide will tell you about the human and natural history of this area, including the great Jostedalsbreen Glacier. In the afternoon, continue on to Balestrand.

  • Drive to Bergen today and return your car. Stroll along the cobblestone lanes at your own leisure today. You might want to wander through the boutique stalls and shops of Bryggen, Bergen's old town, or visit Bergenhus Fortress, one of Norway's oldest castles.

  • Meet your private guide and embark on a walking tour of Bergen this morning. Visit the wharf-side fish market, where fresh seafood is sold daily. Explore hidden cobbled alleyways, brightly painted houses, and studios while you learn about Bergen's history and culture.

  • Leave Bergen to explore the Hardangerfjord region with your private driver-guide. This area is known for its plethora of charming fjordside fruit orchards, whose blossoms create a swathe of pink and white cascading down the hillsides, juxtaposed against a backdrop of dramatic, snow-topped mountains or imposing glaciers.

  • You’ll be picked up at your hotel this morning and driven to the train station for your unaccompanied train journey to Oslo. A private driver will meet you at the train station in Oslo and escort you to your hotel.

  • Today your private driver will take you to the airport in time for your international flight home.
