Arrive in Oslo, the capital of Norway; transfer to your hotel. Balance of the day is at leisure. This evening, your tour begins at 6:00 PM when you join your Tour Manager for a Welcome Drink and orientation meeting, followed by a Welcome Dinner at your hotel.

Begin your day with a city tour of Oslo. Start with a visit to the modern City Hall.* Then, pass the National Theater, the 19th Century Royal Palace and visit the main square to view the Cathedral. Next, visit the Vigeland Sculpture Park, designed by Gustav Vigeland; the park contains 192 sculptures with more than 600 figures. The park's most popular attraction is the Monolith column, measuring 46 feet high with 121 human figure reliefs. It is carved from a single block of granite and took three stone sculptors 14 years (1929-43) to complete. The balance of the morning and early afternoon is at leisure or, join the optional Treasures of Oslo tour. Admire the highlights of Norway's great seafaring tradition as you enjoy a guided visit to see three 1,200-year-old ornamented Viking ships which are the best preserved in existence *In the event that the Oslo City Hall is closed due to local events, the visit will be substituted with a visit to the Oslo Cathedral

DAY 5, Monday - Lom Stave Church, Travel to Sogndal

Next, drive via Sognefjellet (weather permitting), the highest mountain pass in Northern Europe known as the "roof of Norway", through the dramatic Norwegian countryside. Pass glaciers, pine forests and perhaps reindeer, as well as Galdhøpiggen, Norway's highest mountain in the Jotunheimen National Park.

View pastures, waterfalls and snow-clad peaks, all nestled beautifully into the surrounding mountainside. Ascend to 3,000 feet within 12 miles for one of the most scenic views of Norway. Continue to your hotel in Bergen, Norway’s second-largest city. A major distributor of the wealthy trading guilds of the Hanseatic League, many residents of this 11th-century city still earn their livelihood from the sea
Overnight: Bergen

This morning, join your tour manager for a short walking tour through picturesque Bryggen, the old Hanseatic wharf and series of colorful commercial buildings, dating back to the Middle Ages.

Spend the rest of your day at leisure to explore Bergen, an important cultural hub located in the middle of the region known as De syv fjell, or the Seven Mountains. The city served as an old trading port and has maintained a bustling harbor since the 11th century as part of the Hanseatic League. Perhaps join the optional tour to Troldhaugen where you'll visit the home of the famous composer Edvard Grieg for an afternoon concert and tour of the grounds.
