|Nordic Trails and Fjords I
|ALL ITINERARIES ENQUIRE|
This 12-day itinerary is an exploration of some of the high-lights and back roads and hidden gems of south-west Norway. It begins in Norway's capital, Oslo, and ends in Bergen, home of the UNESCO Bryggen Wharf by the Atlantic coast. ...Read More
From Oslo you drive via Lillehammer, the site of the 1994 Winter Olympics, to Norway's world-famous fjords from which beautiful, snow-covered mountains rise up steeply to touch the clouds. Stunning vistas open up as you drive along these fjords (and sometimes cross them by ferry) and over memorable mountain passes such as Trollstigen. Besides the well-known, this itinerary also takes in quieter, off-the-beaten-path corners of Norway such as Loen, Øye, Norangsdalen, Hafslo, and many others.
Driving in Norway is a sheer pleasure: the roads are very well-maintained and they lead through extraordinary landscapes.
While perhaps a few years ago Norway (along with the other Scandinavian countries) would not have been counted among the "foodie" destinations of this world, this has changed: today, you will want to travel to Norway not only for its "powered by nature" beauty, but also for its culinary delights.
