Our day begins with a drive to Lillehammer, a picturesque ski resort town that overlooks the northern end of Lake Mjosa. We explore Maihaugen, one of Northern Europe’s largest open-air museums, and learn what life was like from the Middle Ages to the present. Marvel at this recreation of a small inland village with hundreds of authentic buildings, including turf-topped houses, a railway station, a school, fishing cabins, barns, and historic Garmo Stave Church, built over 800 years ago. While there, enjoy an included lunch with delicious traditional food. After checking in to our hotel in the nearby city of Oyer, the rest of the day is yours to relax or explore.

This afternoon, we reach our destination and see Voringsfossen Waterfall, Norway’s most famous waterfall. Watch how the powerful water cascades nearly 600 feet off the Hardangervidda Plateau into the Mabodalen Valley! Next, we venture into Hardangervidda National Park and visit Norsk Natursenter to browse state-of-the-art exhibits that showcase Norwegian natural and cultural history. View a panoramic film called “Fjord Mountain Waterfall” in The Centre, then explore three floors of interactive stations, fossils, aquariums, illustrations, and more.
