Experience the breathtaking scenery of Norway's spectacular landscapes, from historic Bergen to majestic fjords, with an unforgettable railway journey on the famous Flåmsbana – with all travel, breakfast, and city tours

Days 1 & 2: Bergen

Prepare for one epic holiday in one of the world's most beautiful countries. Steeped in dramatic landscapes, calming fjords and cultural cities, it seems like Norway has it all. You’ll start with a two-night stay at Augustin Hotel in Bergen, a city on the southwestern coast, set against a spectacularly mountainous background and surrounded by fjords. No place is quite as idyllic as this UNESCO World Heritage Site, probably best known for the colourful buildings and pointed rooftops along Hanseatic Wharf. On your second day, you'll be taken on a walking tour of Bergen to visit the overflowing stalls of the bustling Fish Market, and admire the Hanseatic buildings and busy wharf area of Bryggen, an urban sprawl that’s been populated since the Middle Ages. (Meals: breakfast)

Days 3 & 4: Balestrand

The breathtaking landscapes of the Sognefjord will come into view today as you embark on a four-hour cruise. At 204 kilometres long, Sognefjord is the proverbial king of Norway’s fjords. You'll glide along the still waters until your reach your next destination: Balestrand. Hosting on its quiet shores since 1877, the family-run Kviknes Hotel offers a timeless base: it features a restaurant with a flair for locally-sourced cuisine, an extensive wine cellar and plenty of balconies to take advantage of those breath-taking fjord views. While here, you can relax in this idyllic setting, or decide to explore further, maybe head to the nearby Fjærland, spotting tiny towns tucked in amongst imposing glaciers, as well as visiting the Norwegian Glacier Museum: there you'll find a fascinating exhibition as well as screenings of Ivo Caprino's film about the Jostedalen Glacier. (Meals: breakfast, dinner)

Day 5: Flåm

As you depart from Balestrand, more enchanting scenery follows you as you cruise along to Flåm - an authentic Norwegian village known for the stunning railway than traverses the idyllic fjords, the Flåmsbana. You'll be whisked away on one of the most beautiful train journeys in the world, admiring steep mountains, thundering waterfalls and epic glaciers on your way to Myrdal, where you'll change for another train to Oslo - of course, the views won't stop along the way. Your journey ends in the capital where you'll check-in to your final hotel, The Clarion Hub Hotel. (Meals: breakfast)

Days 6 & 7: Oslo

Welcome to Oslo, the country’s charming and creative capital! You’ll never tire of sightseeing in this wondrously hip spot, and you'll have the chance to discover the highlights on a three-hour guided city tour: from the manicured lawns and sculptures of Frogner Park to Akershus Fortress, a medieval castle that has been used as a military base and a prison in its lifetime. Then, it's time to take things at your own place and stroll along the cobbled streets, stopping for coffee and fresh seafood specialities. After your final night at The Clarion, you'll have time for some quick souvenir shopping along Karl Johan's street before being transferred to the airport by shuttle, ready for your flight home. (Meals: breakfast)
