Globus Scenic Norway(ZQ)

9 days from Oslo to Oslo 
Gorgeous fjords, breathtaking mountains, serene lakes, gleaming glaciers, and thundering waterfalls...this is Norway, and on this Scenic Norway tour, you’ll experience Norway's exciting cities and spectacular scenery.

Visit Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site surrounded by majestic mountains, gorgeous waterfalls, and lush, green vegetation. Here, Globus has arranged a very special experience for you. You’ll travel above the tree line to 5,000 feet for breathtaking panoramic views of the fjord and the surrounding peaks from the mountaintop lookout. Another tour highlight is a cruise past the famous "Seven Sisters," the most photographed waterfalls in Geirangerfjord.

You'll also visit Sognefjord, Norway's longest fjord, with its Nærøyfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, enjoy a cruise on both fjords and a stop to see one of the mighty tongues that radiate from Jostedal Glacier, Europe's largest glacier. But that's not all…you'll also spend time in the Hardangerfjord region, where you'll stop at thundering Låtefoss waterfall, one of Norway's best known waterfalls; take a ferry; and see Hardangervidda mountain plateau, one of Europe's largest 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—a special experience offered by Globus.

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

These are just some of the many highlights on this Norway tour. It’s an amazing vacation to Norway!
