Best of Norway with Oslo

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. </BR></BR>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 m.). This out-of-the-ordinary experience included by Globus lets you witness 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 Hotel Ullensvang, which offers 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 Steinsdalsfoss waterfall, where you can walk behind the cascading waterfall without getting wet. </BR></BR>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 you’ll see two of them, including in Borgund, where you’ll admire one of Norway’s best-preserved stave churches dating back to 1180. Stay two nights in Bergen, founded in 1070. Here, visit Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with foundations dating to the 12th century. In Bergen, Globus has also included another special experience—the Fløibanen funicular, where magnificent views of Bergen and the fjords await. </BR></BR>From the magnificent scenery to the vibrant cities—including an extra night in Oslo—this tour through Norway is sure to delight all of your senses. It’s a dream vacation!
