DAY 1 - OSLO

Alternatively, visit one of Oslo's wide choice of museums celebrating Scandinavian history and culture. Take a boat out to the Bygdøy Peninsula for the highest concentration of these or stay in the center of town and see Edvard Munch's The Scream at the National Gallery. (Overnight in Oslo)

DAY 2 - OSLO TO FLAM
After breakfast this morning, take an early train from Oslo to Myrdal and then connect with the world famous Flam Railway. The journey down from the mountain station of Myrdal down to Flam deep in the fjord is one of the most spectacular in Europe and travels along the steepest normal track railway line in the world, dropping more than 2,800ft in just under an hour. Take in the awe-inspiring views of rugged mountains, deep valleys and thundering waterfalls as you descend into the Aurlandsfjord.
On arrival in Flam, check in at your hotel for an overnight stay and spend the rest of the afternoon at leisure in this idyllic village. (Overnight in Flam) B

DAY 3 - FLAM TO BERGEN
Your onward journey begins this morning with a ferry ride into the UNESCO World Heritage listed Nærøyfjord, the narrowest fjord in the world. This branch of the Sognefjord is spectacularly beautiful with its high peaks framing the narrow thread of water. Watch goats grazing along the banks and seals lying on the rocks before mooring at Gudvangen. Here, transfer onto a bus which will take you up the winding bends of the Stalheimskleiva to a lookout point above the Stalheimsfossen and Sivlefossen waterfalls. You'll make a brief stop to admire the view before continuing to Voss, where you transfer to the station for your onward train journey to Bergen. On arrival in Bergen, check in at your hotel for an overnight stay.
Spend your time here exploring Norway's second city. Why not discover the colourful Hanseatic buildings of Bryggen and Vågen harbours or take the Fløibanen up to the top of Fløyen for spectacular views? (Overnight in Bergen) B

DAY 4 - BERGEN TO OSLO
After breakfast this morning, head back to the station for your scenic journey from Bergen back to Oslo along the Bergen Line, the highest mainline rail line in Northern Europe. On arrival in Oslo, check in at your hotel for the last night of your vacation.
If the weather is fine this evening, why not go to the waterfront area of Aker Brygge where there are many bars and restaurants overlooking the harbour. Alternatively, head to the Oslo Opera House, an amazing building constructed to resemble a glacier emerging from the water. The building is worth a visit, even if you don't go for a performance. (Overnight in Oslo) B

DAY 5 - YOUR JOURNEY ENDS IN OSLO
Check out of your hotel after breakfast this morning and continue your onward journey. If you've time to continue your vacation through Scandinavia, speak to one of our Travel Consultants about perhaps arranging a trip to the Swedish capital of Stockholm. B
