Travel around Southern Norway's Coastline

A trip around Norway’s south coast is a great addition to a trip to the Norwegian fjords. Southern Norway, nicknamed “The Norwegian Riviera”, is the number one summer holiday destination for locals owing to the region’s mild weather, picturesque seaside towns teeming with little wooden cottages and idyllic rocky shoreline that's great for hiking.

The best way to take in the sights of southern Norway is with an itinerary that starts in Oslo, the capital, and takes you to Bergen on the west coast. From the historic port city of Bergen, with its incredible scenic overlooks from the surrounding mountains, you can continue south along the coast with stays in bustling oceanfront cities like Stavanger and Kristiansand.

One of the most popular options for making the journey from Oslo to Bergen is by travelling on a Norway in Nutshell train package. This scenic trip encompasses a steep and picturesque train ride over the mountains, a short cruise on the majestic Nærøyfjord and some free time in the colourful fjord village of Flåm, among other highlights. From Bergen, we recommend taking the “coastal bus” south to Stavanger, which offers great scenery of the rugged shoreline and includes two scenic ferry crossings. From Stavanger you can continue your journey along the south coast by train back to Oslo.

For an extra scenic twist to this suggested route, you can instead take a train to Trondheim on the west coast and sail overnight to Bergen on a southbound Hurtigruten cruise. Train and cruise tour packages in Norway are available year-round from Nordic Visitor, and it’s a good idea to spend at least a week -- ideally 11 days or longer -- on our suggested route in western and southern Norway.

With 10 - 14 days or more to travel, why not expand your Norway trip to include neighbouring Scandinavian countries? Whether you travel on your own or in the company of a guided small group, Nordic Visitor makes it easy to combine visits to Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland all in one tailor-made itinerary.

Note: If you want to experience the northern lights and snowy adventures like dog sledding, we highly recommend visiting northern Norway in the peak winter months, December to March.

Complete Norway, February 2020

We had a great experience

Everything was fine, accomodations were perfect, comfortable and very good breakfast. Our experience with Nordic Visitor was very helpful and the followups were very efficient.

Tracy, United States

Highlights of Norway, May 2019

Fantastic tour! My second guided tour with Nordic Visitor, and I will look to do other tours

I enjoyed the small group size and getting to know my tour mates. I most enjoyed the Fjord part of the tour.  Flam was amazing and the accomodations were fantastic! This was my second guided tour with Nordic Visitor, and I will look to do other tours with Nordic Visitor. I have recommended to friends and 2 have used for self-drive tours in Iceland. I also wrote a positive trip advisor review on my Iceland tour and it was read by 1,500 people! I will give another positive write-up on this trip. I love to look at your website (which is one of the best travel websites I've seen) and dream about where I may want to go next.

Norway in a Nutshell® Classic - Winter, January 2020

Wonderful experience!

It's intimidating visiting a foreign country where you don't speak the language. Our fears were put to rest the moment we started our tour, the whole experience was just wonderful. Everything was wonderful, our tour was carefully planned and made the maximum use of our time.

Excellent tour!

An excellent tour. Excellent locations, nice quality. Self guided, directions were very clear and concise. We especially enjoyed the day spent at Camp Tamok, where we partook in reindeer and dog sledding.
