Itinerary

Start your six-night Norwegian adventure in Oslo, the country’s charming and creative capital. You’ll never tire of sightseeing in this wondrously hip spot, and you could discover its very best features at your own pace – highlights include the Royal Palace and Parliament, which you can visit between multiple stops for coffee and fresh seafood specialities. You’ll more than enjoy kicking back at Thon Hotel Opera, set in an ideal location near the impressive opera house.

If you’re of the thinking that bigger is always better, then you’ll love what comes next as you make your way through pretty Flåm (so pretty, in fact, that Flåm Railway you'll travel aboard has been named one of the world's most beautiful train journeys) en route to the region of Sognefjord – at 204 kilometres long, this is the proverbial king of Norway’s fjords. Hosting on its shores since 1877, the family-run Kviknes Hotel in Balestrand offers a timeless base; it features a restaurant with a flair for locally sourced cuisine, an extensive wine cellar and plenty of balconies to take advantage of those breath-taking fjord views. While here, you’ll have the option of partaking in a full-day’s tour to Fjærland, where you’ll spot tiny towns tucked in amongst imposing glaciers.

You’ll move on to a two-night stay at Zander K Hotel in Bergen, a city on the southwestern coast, set against a spectacular mountainous background and surrounded by fjords. No place is quite as idyllic as this UNESCO World Heritage Site, probably best known for the colourful buildings and pointed rooftops along Hanseatic Wharf.
