Don’t miss the capital city, Oslo, where modernity meets history. Explore the new world-class art museums MUNCH and the National Museum, marvel at the striking architecture of the Oslo Opera House and explore the new, stylish waterfront neighbourhoods like Bjørvika, Tjuvholmen and Sørenga, and wander through Vigeland Park, adorned with over 200 sculptures.
Take the Bergensbanen railway to Bergen, a city surrounded by seven mountains and filled with colorful wooden houses. Explore the UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf, visit the Hanseatic Museum, and take the Fløibanen funicular to Mount Fløyen for panoramic views. For a unique experience, change to the famous Flåm Railway, one of the world’s most scenic train rides, at Myrdal station. Enjoy the ride as the train it winds through snow-capped mountains, thundering waterfalls, and lush valleys, all the way down to the fjord, where you can sail on an emission free cruise through the narrow Nærøyfjord, surrounded by steep mountainsides. An awe-inspiring experience! You can book a Norway in a Nutshell-trip that includes the ride all the way from Oslo or Bergen via Flåm.
Are you a food lover? Then you should head to the charming city of Trondheim, that has become the gastronomical hot spot of Norway.
