Globus Scenic Norway(ZQ)

10 days from Oslo to Oslo 
Gorgeous fjords, breathtaking mountains, serene lakes, gleaming glaciers, and thundering waterfalls are yours to discover on this Scenic Norway escorted tour. You’ll experience Norway's exciting cities and spectacular scenery you’ve only imagined until now.

In Oslo, guided sightseeing includes the famous Frogner Park with over 200 extraordinary bronze and granite sculptures. In the Telemark region, visit the Heddal stave church, the largest of Norway's remaining medieval wooden churches. In Bergen, you'll hear about the city's 11th-century origins on your orientation tour. In Loen, enjoy a very special experience on the Loen Skylift.

You'll also spend time in the Hardangerfjord region, where you'll stop at thundering Låtefoss twin-waterfall, one of Norway's best known waterfalls; take a ferry; and see Hardangervidda mountain plateau – one of Europe's largest plateaus and home to Northern Europe's largest stock of reindeer. In this area, you’ll also taste apple cider from a family-owned farm, where you’ll meet the family and hear about their history and how cider is made.

You'll also enjoy a cruise on the Sognefjord – Norway's longest fjord, Nærøyfjord – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – and stop to see one of the mighty branches that radiates from Jostedal Glacier – Europe's largest glacier. Another tour highlight is a cruise past the famous "Seven Sisters," the most photographed waterfalls in Geirangerfjord, and travel above the tree line to 5,000 feet for breathtaking panoramic views of the fjord and the surrounding peaks from the mountaintop lookout.

These are just a few of the many highlights on this guided Norway tour. It’s an amazing vacation!
