Begin the day with breakfast at our hotel, then a local guide joins us for a tour of Oslo. Major sightseeing destinations include the Royal Palace, Vigeland Sculpture Park, Akershus Fortress, the Norwegian National Opera & Ballet, and the Bygdoy museums.

Tour the Viking Ship Museum where we learn about the Vikings’ maritime adventures and browse artifacts including Viking ships as old as the 9th century.

The remainder of the day is ours to do as we please. Stroll the halls of the Kon-Tiki Museum, the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History, the Norwegian Maritime Museum, or shop the stores near our hotel.


Day 4 : Lillehammer

After breakfast we depart Oslo and travel to Lillehammer, located in a picturesque setting overlooking the northern end of Lake Mjosa. Home to the 1994 Winter Olympics, it remains a popular ski resort today.

Tour Maihaugen, one of Norway’s greatest open-air museums, and learn what life was from the middle ages to today. Maihaugen resembles a small inland village and features nearly 200 buildings including turf-topped houses, a railway station, school, post office, fishing cabins, and barns. Also on display is a stave church from Garmo.

We have the afternoon at our leisure. You may want to visit the Lillehammer Art Museum, the Norwegian Olympic Museum, or Fabrikken, a creative and cultural arts center. Dinner is at our hotel.

Today we travel westward through spectacular scenery to Norway’s fjordlands. On our way we drive through Gudsbrandalen, the traditional region of Norway dotted with bucolic farms.

We stop in Lom and visit the Lom Stave Church, one of Norway’s largest stave churches with a history that goes back to the 12th century.

From Geiranger we take a ferry through the UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord to Hellesylt and enjoy some of Norway’s most beautiful vistas.

A short drive takes us to the village of Loen where we check into the Hotel Alexandra overlooking the Nordfjord.

Today we enter Jostedalsbreen National Park to experience the mighty Briksdal Glacier, arriving after an exciting ride on an open-air off-road vehicle called a Troll-Car. Briksdal Glacier is one of Norway’s most famous glaciers due to the spectacular waterfalls and mountain peaks that surround it. Later, take the Loen Skylift to the top of Mount Hoven for panoramic views of Loen, the Nordfjord, and the surrounding mountains.

Travel by motorcoach south to Leikanger, on the shores of the Sognefjord. Known as the King of the Fjords, the Sognefjord is Norway’s longest and deepest inlet.

Take a scenic 2 ½-hour ferry to the village of Flam, then take in a breathtaking journey on the Flam Railway to Voss by way of Myrdal, featuring towering mountains, plummeting waterfalls, and lush valleys.

Arrive in Bergen by motorcoach and check-in to our hotel for two nights.
