This relaxing weeklong journey starts in the capital city of Oslo before heading west, via the steepest train in Norway (Flåm Railway). From here, embrace the slow-paced local culture of Aurland while staying two nights at a secluded and upscale lodge that serves organic cuisine. Take part in some light hiking and paddling and then cruise the Sognefjord by ferry, finishing the adventure in scenic Bergen — Norway's UNESCO-listed second largest city surrounded by seven mountains.
you ride the Fløibanen funicular elevator (or hike the trail on foot) to the top of Mount Fløyen—one of Bergen's seven peaks—for the best views of the city. Then it's a leisurely stroll back down the path, which even features hidden troll sculptures along the way.
Next is the Bryggen area of downtown. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a series of colorful wooden houses that line the harbor and date back to the 1700s. The tour culminates with a rest in one of the charming local cafés and bakeries. There's nothing quite like enjoying a fresh coffee or hot chocolate and doing some people-watching in one of the most postcard-perfect towns in Europe.
