Tour Overview

Spend 8-days exploring the stunning Norwegian scenery of Oslo, Flam, and Bergen with The Fjords of Norway Summer Adventure tour.

Starting in the quaint capital of Osolo, visitors will have an informative introduction to Norway by stepping back in time through the Viking Ship Museum. Afterward, visitors will taste traditional Scandinavian dishes with a private Oslo gastronomic tour, stopping at the best spots in Oslo.

After a day of savoring the capital, travelers will then take to the small village of Flam with a scenic train ride to take in Norway’s beautiful, natural scenery, including Kjosfossen waterfall. Once in Flam, the dramatic mountain scenes come to life with a Fjord safari experience through the region’s picturesque fjords. Travelers will then take in the beauty of Norway’s longest and deepest fjord, rightfully dubbed as “one of the most beautiful travel destinations in the world,” with a 5-hour scenic cruise along the Sognefjord.

The adventure is then capped off in Bergen. Though it is the second-largest city in Norway, Bergen presents a charming small-town vibe with small houses clinging to the mountainsides, old wooden architecture, and narrow streets packed with cozy cafes. Travelers will be sure to take the Floibanen funicular, one of Norway’s best-known attractions, 320 meters above sea level, for a perfect view of the city and a memorable ending to the tour.

Places You'll See

  • Oslo, Norway

    Oslo is surrounded by the vast forest area of Nordmarka, a great area for team-building activities. Within easy reach, it is possible to go hiking, biking, Nordic walking, or canoeing on one of the many lakes. Winter boasts the opportunity for great skiing, both downhill and cross country, tobogganing, and horse sleigh rides. For those wishing to enjoy a more relaxing activity, wrap up warm and savor a tasty cup of hot chocolate in a lavvo.

  • Flam, Norway

    At the innermost bank of the Aurlandsfjord, surrounded by steep mountains, thundering waterfalls and narrow valleys, you’ll find the small village of Flam. Good transport connections make Flam easy to reach by train, boat, bus or car and in the spring and summer months, you will see large cruise ships gliding in the Sognefjord with their course set for Flam harbor. From there, it is just a short walk to several hotels, hostels and a camping ground.

  • Bergen, Norway

    Even though Bergen is Norway’s second-largest city, it has a lovely small-town vibe and atmosphere. Houses clinging to the mountainsides, old wooden architecture, and narrow streets packed with cozy cafes and shops. The Bergen bucket list tends to grow long, so make sure you have enough time.

Knowledgeable and Responsive

Yampu was recommended to me by a friend a couple of years ago and I have been enormously satisfied with the two trips that they planned for me over the past two years. The first was a two week trip to Argentina and Chile, with the highlight being the four days we spent in Patagonia. All of our hotels were terrific and our guides excellent. This January, they planned an 8 day trip to both the wine country and the Atacama Desert for two of us . Again, everything worked beautifully, from our transfers, hotels, etc.

My trip was fantastic.

My trip was fantastic. I packed an awful lot into a short time but still came home energized rather than exhausted. Your guides were all wonderful. They looked after me extremely well, especially Fabiola, who let me join her family for the Semana Santa celebrations. Fabiola knew exactly were to go and even where to stand to get the most out of the experience. It was a real treat. Thank you so much for the organization. No doubt I shall be in touch soon to plan another trip with Yampu!
