Globus Best of Norway with Oslo(ZME)

8 days from Oslo to Oslo 
Deep-blue fjords, breathtaking mountains, glimmering glaciers, and flowing waterfalls all await you on this Norway guided tour.

A highlight of this Norway escorted tour is a breathtaking ride on the Flåm railway – one of the world’s most scenic train rides – passing through 20 tunnels to an elevation of 2,833 feet (864 m.). This out-of-the-ordinary experience invites you to witness hypnotic waterfalls cascading down the side of steep, snowcapped mountains, rivers winding through deep gorges, farms on the side of steep slopes, and views of Sognefjord – Norway’s longest fjord. Another unique experience is your stay at the historic Hotel Ullensvang, which offers views over Hardangerfjord – the world’s fourth-largest fjord. Travel on the Hardanger National Tourist Road through some of Norway’s most stunning scenery, and stop at Steinsdalsfoss waterfall with the chance to walk behind the cascading waterfall … without getting wet!

In addition to breathtaking scenery, Norway also offers you a country steeped in history. Only 28 of Norway’ wooden stave churches – built in the Middle Ages – still remain. In Borgund, you’ll see one of Norway’s best-preserved stave churches dating back to 1180. Stay two nights in Bergen, founded in 1070, where you’ll enjoy a guided walking tour. In Bergen, the Fløibanen funicular offers magnificent views of Bergen and the fjords.

From the magnificent scenery to the vibrant cities – including a train ride to Oslo – this guided tour through Norway is sure to delight all of your senses and remain in your cherished memories for years to come.
