Combine the Scandinavian capitals Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo with the breathtaking Norwegian fjords. Embark on an overnight cruise between Copenhagen and Oslo, and travel on the scenic Bergen- & Flåm Railway.
Arrival in Stockholm according to your own itinerary. Stockholm, as a city, is over 700 years old and spreads across 14 islands. The Swedish capital is therefore with good reason referred to as Beauty on Water. Stockholm is also a major international city with great shopping, quality eateries in abundance, an internationally renowned club and music scene and a vibrant cultural life. You can get to just about all of Stockholm’s many attractions on foot, but we also highly recommend a city sightseeing tour and a cruise in Stockholm's Archipelago.

The train journey will bring you across Hardangervidda Mountain Plateau, with Finse as the highest train station at 1222 metres above sea level. In Myrdal you will change to the Flåm Railway, connecting the Bergen Line to the Sognefjord. You will pass through wild and beautiful mountain scenery with waterfalls and steep mountain sides before reaching the fjord village of Flåm. Flåm is Norway's only fjord village with train connection. Afternoon at leisure to explore Flåm. The area also offers great hiking opportunities. Accommodation in Flåm.

The Nærøyfjord is the narrowest fjord channel in Europe, and has recently been added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List. From Gudvangen the journey continues by bus through Nærøyfjord Valley and up the Stalheimskleiva, with its 13 steep hairpin bends (Stalheimskleiva is only open during the summer). The last part of the excursion will be by train from Voss to Bergen, Norway’s second largest city and the world’s only city surrounded by 7 mountains and 7 fjords. Accommodation in Bergen.
Breakfast at the hotel. This day is at your own leisure. Even though Bergen is the second largest city in Norway, it is rather a town with the charm and atmosphere of a small town; you can walk practically everywhere in only 20 minutes and instead of tall buildings you will find wooden houses and narrow streets. Take a stroll along Bryggen Wharf before heading to Mount Fløyen with Fløibanen funicular for a spectacular view of the city. Other sights of interest include Edvard Grieg's home Troldhaugen, the Fish and Flower market, Bergen Aquarium and Gamle Bergen (Old Bergen Open Air Museum). Accommodation in Bergen.
