This tour starts from Oslo where you board a Bergen Railway train taking you on a journey across Norway’s spectacular mountain terrain. Once you reach Myrdal, you will then have to change to the world-famous Flåm Railway train. There is a reason why this railway is considered one of the most beautiful train rides in the world, which is also why it is one of the leading tourist attractions in Norway. There is absolutely no better way to enjoy the very best of Western Norway’s raw beauty and picturesque scenery.
From Flåm your trip continues on a fjord cruise via the two fjords that are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Nærøyfjord is the longest fjord in Norway, it is one of the inner branches of the Sognefjord and it is only 500 metres wide in some parts. Meanwhile Aurlandsfjord is considered one of the Sognefjord’s wildest and most spectacular branches due to its magnificent and picturesque views with tall mountains overlooking the fjord.
After the boat ride you will then arrive at the old Viking village Gudvangen located at the end of the Nærøyfjord. Gudvangen has been a popular tourist destination for decades.
