We recommend that all Nordic Visitor travellers read through the following information about what the tour includes, deposit payments, what to pack for your holiday, and useful information about the activities included on the tour.
Please note that this tour is not recommended for families with young children.
OSLO TO BERGEN
On this tour, you get all the exciting adventures of the Wonders of the Norwegian fjord tour plus the chance to explore the beautiful capital of Oslo at your own pace. The pre-tour in Oslo, including the journey to Bergen, is not part of the guided small group tour. While your Oslo accommodations and railway journey to Bergen (as specified in the itinerary) will be pre-booked by Nordic Visitor, travellers are ultimately responsible for their own time during the first few days of the trip. You will meet your tour guide and group on day four at the welcome meeting in Bergen.
YOUR NORDIC VISITOR GUIDE
Our team of local expert guides at Nordic Visitor are highly recommended by our travellers and staff with years of experience. What they offer is local knowledge, love for their country, their stories, favourite places and sites where travellers, on their own, would not hear about or visit. They always have some trick up their sleeves and hidden gems to surprise our clients and therefore we recommend that you join our guided small group tours to get a personal experience for your Norwegian adventure. There will be one guide per tour. As an expert on Norway, the guide is also a valuable resource for questions about local customs, languages, shopping, food and other practical travel information.

We request that you leave non-essential luggage at the hotel in Bergen and to only keep with you, daily essentials like camera, wallet, medications and so forth.Please contact your Nordic Visitor travel consultant if you have any questions about luggage.
