Overview
The Bergensbanen is one of the great rail journeys of the world as it's the highest line in Europe climbing up to 4,000 feet across the barren, snow flecked Hardangervidda mountain plateau before descending through lush valleys to the coast. And you can do it in a day on this superb tour as well as seeing all the sights in the Norwegian capital city Oslo and in Bergen, gateway to the country's beautiful fjord region.
Day 1
Arrive in Oslo
On arrival at Oslo airport you make your own way to your city hotel, either the centrally located Bastion or The Thief, where you will be based for the next two nights. Oslo has undergone a transformation, which started with the opening of the new Opera House and regeneration of the now cosmopolitan waterfront. Still paying homage to its maritime roots, the city blends old with new. Don’t miss the Viking Ship Museum or the Vigeland Sculpture Park.

Day 2
Oslo
You have all day to enjoy the many attractions this capital city has to offer. Take a guided city tour, explore the many museums or shop till you drop. Stop off at Aker Brygge for a harbour-side lunch in one of the cosmopolitan bars and restaurants. Oslo is surrounded by fjords, hills and forests and is in a stunning location. Tonight go out and sample the buzzing nightlife.

Day 3
Bergensbanen
It is a 12-hour spectacular journey to Bergen. Leave Oslo travelling through the rolling countryside dotted with farms and fjords to Myrdal for the steep descent along the 16 mile mountain railway to Flåm. Continue by ferry along the Aurlandfjord and the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is Naerøyfjord, to Gudvangen where you catch a bus to Stalheim for a view over the mountains. Then travel on Voss to pick up the Bergensbanen down to Bergen where you stay at the Hotel Rosenkrantz or Hotel Havnekontoret.

Day 4
Bergen
The ‘Gateway to the Fjords’ is filled with attractions. Take the funicular up Mount Fløyen, stroll around The UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site of Bryggen, choose your lunch at the fish market, take a fast ferry into the fjords or visit the home of Edvard Grieg. Bergen is situated in the heart of Fjord Norway and this charming Hanseatic harbour town nestles in the embrace of its seven mountains and a lattice of fjords. The view from the top of Mount Fløyen on a clear day is breathtaking.

Day 5

This short Scandanavian break will give you a real taste of the country and leave you with lots of great memories.
