Visit the Fjords in Western Norway
So, you want to see the Norwegian fjords? Then a trip to western Norway is a must. With overnight stays in the beautiful cities on Norway’s west coast you can easily explore the country’s most famous landscapes and numerous UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Most of Nordic Visitor’s expertly-organised tours in western Norway include stays in Bergen, an historic port city with incredible scenic overlooks from the surrounding mountains. Here you can spend a couple days and visit a variety of cultural attractions, including the brightly-coloured medieval houses of Bryggen. Trondheim, another colourful and hilly city just up the coastline, is another popular base for travels in western Norway.
Train and cruise holidays are available year-round from Nordic Visitor and are great ways to experience both of these cities in western Norway. A Hurtigruten cruise along the west coast promises gorgeous views from the outer decks as well as optional shore excursions in ports of call like charming Ålesund. Furthermore, on one of the popular Norway in a Nutshell train packages you can spend time in the postcard-perfect village of Flåm, take a mountainous bus ride on the twisty Stalheimskleiva and take a short fjord cruise on the majestic Nærøyfjord.
If you want to drive around the fjords at your own pace, a summer road trip in West Norway is the way to go. What’s more, touring the west coast by car between May and September gives you the best trail conditions for hiking at places like Pulpit Rock and opportunities for driving over steep, twisting mountain passes like the Eagle Road and Trollstigen.
With 10 - 14 days or more to travel, why not expand your Norway trip to include neighbouring cities in Scandinavia? 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.
