The best way to visit the Norwegian fjords is by joining a Fjord cruise package based on eco friendly travel by local transport. The trips include all transport & hotels en route, amazing Fjord cruises and spectacular train rides such as the Flam Railway & the Bergen line. Most of the trips start in Oslo, but there are also trips starting in Bergen. The trips are independent (you will travel like a local, not with a group)

You can choose between trips with day fjord cruises & overnight at hotels, or trips with overnight cruises on Hurtigruten ships. Our Norwegian fjords travel tips:
