GLOBUS 2024: Best of Norway with Oslo Extension (ZME)

8 days from Oslo to Oslo

Deep-blue fjords, breathtaking mountains, glimmering glaciers, and flowing waterfalls? these are natural wonders you expect to see in Norway, and on this Norway tour, you'll experience all of this and more.

A highlight of this Norway tour is a breathtaking ride on the Flam railway, one of the world's most scenic train rides, which passes through 20 tunnels and climbs to an elevation of 2,833 feet (864 meters). Marvel at the hypnotic waterfalls cascading down the side of steep, snowcapped mountains, rivers winding through deep gorges; farms on the side of steep slopes, and views of Sognefjord, Norway's longest fjord.

Travel on the Hardanger National Tourist Road, carefully developed to take you through some of Norway's most stunning scenery, and stop at Steinsdalsfossen waterfall, where you can walk behind the cascading falls without getting wet.

In addition to breathtaking scenery, Norway also offers you a country steeped in history. In the Middle Ages, Norwegians built churches out of wood. Only 28 of these stave churches now remain in Norway, and in Borgund, you'll admire one of Norway's best-preserved stave churches dating back to 1180. Stay two nights in Bergen, founded in 1070, where guided sightseeing features the main sights and a walking tour of Bryggen. From the magnificent scenery to the vibrant cities-including a train ride back to Oslo and an extra night-this tour through Norway will delight all of your senses.
