Hardanger Highlights Fly-Drive

7 Day Tour, from £1050 per person

Experience the best that the Hardanger region has to offer on this week-long fly-drive that starts in Oslo and finishes in Bergen.

This route showcases some of the most spectacular natural landscapes of central Norway. Drive the celebrated and incredibly varied Hardangervidda National Scenic route, which crosses the biggest high mountain plateau in Northern Europe, passes Norway's most famous waterfall, Vøringsfossen, and ventures through the wild Måbødalen Valley.
