Tour Itinerary

Deep-blue fjords, breathtaking mountains, glimmering glaciers, and flowing waterfalls… these are natural wonders you expect to see in Norway, and on this Norway tour, you’ll experience all of this and more.A highlight of this Norway tour is a breathtaking ride on the Flåm railway, one of the world’s most scenic train rides, which passes through 20 tunnels and climbs to an elevation of 2,833 feet (864 meters). This out-of-the-ordinary experience included by Globus allows you to marvel at the hypnotic waterfalls cascading down the side of steep, snowcapped mountains, rivers winding through deep gorges; farms on the side of steep slopes, and views of Sognefjord, Norway’s longest fjord. Another unique experience is your stay at the historic Ullensvang Hotel, which offers idyllic views over Hardangerfjord, the world’s fourth-largest fjord. Travel on the Hardanger National Tourist Road, carefully developed to take you through some of Norway’s most stunning scenery, and stop at Steinsdalsfossen waterfall, where you can walk behind the cascading falls without getting wet.In addition to breathtaking scenery, Norway also offers you a country steeped in history. In the Middle Ages, Norwegians built churches out of wood. Only 28 of these stave churches now remain in Norway, and in Borgund, you’ll admire one of Norway’s best-preserved stave churches dating back to 1180. Stay two nights in Bergen, founded in 1070, where guided sightseeing features the main sights and a walking tour of Bryggen. From the magnificent scenery to the vibrant cities—including Oslo—this tour through Norway will delight all of your senses. Be sure to bring your camera so you can capture memories of this incredible vacation!

Welcome to Oslo, ancient capital of Norway! At 6 pm, meet your traveling companions for a welcome dinner at your hotel. (D)

Day 2: OSLO.
Today gives you an introduction to Oslo, the country’s hub of trade and industry. Sightseeing with a Local Guide features the National Theater, considered the home for Ibsen’s plays; the unique Storting building, seat of Parliament; and the Royal Palace, residence of Norwegian monarchs since 1849. Stroll through magnificent FROGNER PARK with Gustav Vigeland’s extraordinary sculptures; and visit the CITY HALL, where the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony is held each year. Afterwards, an optional excursion is available to see relics of Norway’s glorious seafaring past—including 1,000-year-old Viking ships! (B)

Day 3: OSLO–BORGUND–FLÅM.
Depart the city and drive northwest through Hallingdal, a large valley with rich traditions in iron production, cattle trade, and typical folk art, music, and dance.

Then, travel through the world’s longest road tunnel (15 miles) to Aurland, and arrive in the picturesque village of Flåm, situated at the head of Aurlandsfjord.

Here, board your coach and head south, crossing the Hardanger Bridge, one of the longest suspension bridges in the world.

The tour guide was rude and was not well informed about Norway. She read from an iPad when giving us information. She was not personable and did not even know our names at the end of the tour. I was with many members of my family and we had a really good time, but the guide did absolutely nothing to enhance our trip. I was very disappointed with her and intend to let Globus know. I have been on about 10 tours and have never experienced a tour guid like her. I have been on the Globus Greek tour in 2013 and had David who was wonderful. I still remember his name because he was so dynamic, fun, and personable. Our guide showed absolutely no enthusiasm for the country or the excursions. 

Amazing trip at a wonderful pace. Highly recommend

This was a great trip. Was the first time I booked my flight thru Globus. I was not informed that the fare they quoted me did not include luggage. I discovered this while checking in and it cost close to $200. I should have been given the option of the next level up (Standard Economy) vs what they purchased (Economy Light).

The Ullesvang hotel was magnificent.

The trip was very nice. The people of Norway were very friendly and helpful. The other travelers in our group were very friendly and we got along well. The scenery and our touring were great.

One of the best tours I've ever taken. Both our guide and driver were outstanding. While there was enough free time to relax or take optional tours, we were kept very busy. No wasted days.

I would have liked to have known the following things. Before booking this particular trip, I would have liked to be informed that the World Bike Challenge would be taking place in Bergen. We had first chosen another week for this tour and we were strongly encouraged to move to this departure. If we had known about the bike challenge we would not have been so agreeable. In the booklet, I would have liked to have known - Hotel rooms are warm and some have windows that do not open Hotels do not have clocks and some did not provide a wake-up service. Only one of four hotels had a computer for public use. I would have brought my own laptop had I known.
