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.

Excellent service

Second time we've used Nordic Visitor and they will continue to be my first choice for booking tours. Excellent service from travel consultants, value for money and the information provided make it an excellent company.

Norway in a Nutshell® - Classic, October 2017

I did not realize how easy the travel would be

I did not realize how easy the travel would be, it was a great blend of being on your own and the privacy, but having a back up and someone to organize the transportation was great. I felt like I saw the most I could in 5 days.

Impressed with how well everything was handled

I was impressed with how well everything was handled and the superb communication I received from my agent throughout. He responded to my emails immediately and answered every question I had.  I loved the personal connection I felt and the knowledge that Nordic Visitor would respond appropriately if I ran into a problem.

Norway in a Nutshell® and the Pulpit Rock, July 2017

Truly was a trip of a lifetime!

All accomodations were perfect. All hotels were close to all the local attractions, easy to get to from the airport, train station, ferry station. All the rooms were ready when I got there, they were clean and comfortable. The included breakfast were really delicious. I am a vegetarian, and had plenty of options. My whole experience with Nordic Visitor has been exceptional, and I have been telling everyone of my friends how easy everything was. Sofia was very patient with me, and worked with me, to tailor the itinerary to my satisfaction, was prompt in answering all my questions. Everything was done over email, which I loved, because I didnt have to rely on my memory. All in all, Nordic Visitor rocks! This was truly a trip of a lifetime!
