Immerse yourself in the very best of Norwegian Scenery and have the opportunity to the absolute best way of experiencing the stunning scenery between Oslo and Bergen.

From snow capped mountains to stunning deep fjords and presented with a local knowledge that only native Norwegian Guides have. Don't miss out on the hidden gems when you first travel this far - instead opt for the most experienced guide team in the country.
Your guide will pick you up at your Oslo city center hotel bright and early. You are heading from the flatlands in the east, out on the scenic drive over the mountains to the beautiful fjords of the west coast. The road itself is as beautiful as the classic train ride and many think even better as you can make stops upon request along the way. Don't miss out on those great opportunities for that magic shot by being confined to your seat.
You head out on the E-16 from the east and make your way via the beautiful Valdres area where you pass villages like Bagn, Fagernes, Røn, and the wonderful Ryfoss waterfall. As you arrive in the picturesque small mountain village of Vang, it is time to get ready for the mountain crossing and check that your cameras are ready for the spectacular scenery.
After you pass the mountains you will descend via Lærdal to the Nærøyfjord World Heritage site. Often called King of the Fjords amongst its visitors. In Flåm you will have the opportunity to see what it is all about. In addition, you are able to take the Flåmsbana train for the highlights from Flåm to Voss (additional ticket cost), -where your guide will be picking you up again in the station. This part of the train is truly the most scenic - and you end up with the best from two worlds.
After you finish up in Flåm and Gudvangen you will take the final part of the drive via Voss City to Bergen and be checking in at your hotel about 9-10pm. It is a full day with a lot of impressions, and you are guaranteed to get a good nights sleep before Bergen is ready for exploration the next few day's.
This local supplier is only using born and bread Norwegian drivers/guides that are experienced with rough mountain roads and eve changing conditions. This means safety is first and what would to many appear as foolhardy is an exhilarating day crossing some of the most rugged and wild areas you will ever find yourself in. Often your guides are also able to point out the many wildlife encounters along the road as they are trained to be observant for that very special moment where your camera can capture it.

We had a very enjoyable trip with Bjorn to Bergen. He showed us the best views and was knowledgeable about Norwegian and American politics.
My husband and I were lucky enough to spend the day with Bjorn traveling thru such a beautiful part of the world. He was full of information and fun! It was one of the most amazing days of our lives with regard to the beauty of mother nature! Don't miss this one....it's unforgettable!
Great trip, would highly recommend! Bjorn is an amazing and entertaining tour guide, very relaxed trip. Lots of highlights seen from Oslo to Bergen and you can stop anywhere you like with this tour to take photos (where safe!) and very informative. Would highly suggest the fjord cruise ship ride in winter, simply beautiful. Just a natural winter wonderland Norway, and this personal tour guide with a private van definitely is the best way to go solo or with a small group!!
We took this trip, because we wanted to be flexible and have the luxury of a private guide, explaining and showing us the beauty of Norway, trailing from Oslo to Bergen. Not really knowing what to expect, and a bit hesitant at first about the price, we decided to get the best out of the short time we had in Norway. It was worth every penny! Our excellent guide Biorn gave us a lot of information on Norway, the Fjords, the history, the culture etc. He was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to listen to. We were able to have frequent stops to stretch our legs and enjoy a cup of coffee etc. during the drive. Biorn also let us taste the native cured meat (I forgot the name, sorry), but it tasted really good. The mountains were gorgeous. Biorn gave us a lot of tips on what else to see. Thank you Bjorn, you made our trip very enjoyable.
It was a fantastic tour. We were able to stop often and see the waterfalls and countryside, taking as many pictures as we wanted. Biorn was the perfect guide. He talked about the history of Norway and answered the wide variety of questions with humor and dignity. The van was comfortable and it was a great alternative to taking the train. Thank you for a wonderful time!!!
Bjion was an exceptional guide. He was extremely knowledgeable of the country, the people and the history of Norway. It was a very comfortable ride that allowed us to stop when ever we needed and gave us the option to add additional stops on our way. I would highly recommend taking this private tour with Bjion and relaxing as you see the beautiful country side between Oslo and Bergen. Great Adventure!
If youre traveling from Oslo to Bergen along the Norway in a Nuthshell trail, I highly recommend this private tour. Its pricey but worth it, as the ability to set your own schedule, stop when you want, and have direct access to a driver/guide created a very nice experience. Our guide, Hanne, was simply delightful. She made the trip great. At every turn, she went out of her way to accommodate us. When my wife asked about where to purchase good Lefse, Hanne said she didnt know. A few minutes later and a call to a friend, Hanne had a suggestion for us in Bergen. Moreover, when we stopped for lunch, Hanne ran into a grocery store and bought a pack of Lefse for us. She is a local with vast knowledge on the history and peculiarities of Norway and the local culture, and was a wealth of information on recommendations for our next few days in Bergen. After spending a day in the car together, I wanted to invite her to dinner with us and have her join us for a hike the next day. In a nutshell, the scenery was spectacular and our guide Hanne was delightful.
