7 Day Tour, from £1465 per person

Stroll through the hundreds of statues at Vigeland Park in Oslo, ride through impressive landscapes on the Bergen Railway and along the one of the steepest tracks in the world on the Flamsbana Express. Marvel at the idyllic Sognefjord as you sail across its deep blue waters and get up close to the majestic Jostedalen Glacier.
