From Oslo, drive over mountains to the fjords, taking in famous attractions like the beautiful Geirangerford, the Olympic town of Lillehammer, Jostdalsbreen Glacier and the city of Bergen.

Reviews

We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our happy customers do it for us.

Friendly staff

All the hotels were very good and staff were all very friendly. A special mention for the hotel in Lom which was fantastic!

A very enjoyable and memorable trip!

Even having traveled a lot this trip exceeded my expectations. Having a planned self drive gave us freedom and structure at the same time. Kolbrun was terrific and the information given excellent...The scenery was magnificent - snow capped mountains, breathtaking waterfalls and fjords extending hundreds of miles inland. A very enjoyable and memorable trip!

Beyond expectation

We appreciate all the efforts Bjarni went through to make sure that our tour was very enjoyable.  We had many upgrades and I believe that Bjarni was instrumental in making those happen.
Both trips with Nordic Visitor have been beyond expectations. They will always be my first choice for traveling in the Northern Countries.
