Tour Itinerary

Gorgeous fjords, breathtaking mountains, serene lakes, gleaming glaciers, and thundering waterfalls... this is Norway, and on this Scenic Norway & Iceland tour, you’ll experience Norway's exciting cities and spectacular scenery, as well as the stunning beauty of Iceland. 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. And in Loen, Globus has arranged a very special experience for you: Norway’s latest spectacular tourism project, 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 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.But that's not all… you'll also enjoy a cruise on the Sognefjord, Norway's longest fjord, with its Nærøyfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a stop to see one of the mighty branches that radiate from Jostedal Glacier, Europe's largest glacier. Another tour highlight is a cruise past the famous "Seven Sisters," the most photographed waterfalls in Geirangerfjord, then, travel above the tree line to 5,000 feet for breathtaking panoramic views of the fjord and the surrounding peaks from the mountaintop lookout at Dalsnibba.
