About the tour
The allure of Norway is otherworldly, from its charming villages and ancient structures to its waterfalls and rugged mountains. On this 13-day expedition, enjoy glimpses of each facet of this dynamic country. Begin in Oslo, with guided touring, before moving onto the harbor town of Bergen, where wooden houses sit alongside a backdrop of towering mountains. Also in Bergen, enjoy the first of four total scenic railway excursions: the Bergen and Flåm Railroads. Moving on to Geiranger, take in views of Dalsnibba viewpoint, Europe's highest fjord, and several stunning waterfalls. Aboard the Rauma Railroad, we continue to Trondheim, a village that dates back to the 10th century. Yet another scenic journey, the Nordland Railroad takes us on a 452-mile journey across the Arctic Circle to Bodø. The views from this rail line are simply remarkable, with the landscapes looking much like they did centuries ago. Wrapping up with even more incredible scenes, the Lofoten Islands are the perfect conclusion to this idyllic journey. Imagine the possibilities and adventures to come in a country where the views are just as dramatic as the history.
