This picturesque five-day itinerary hits key summer spots using various means of transportation for a true Nordic adventure. You'll start off in your home base of Bergen, the country's 2nd largest city (complete with a UNESCO World Heritage Site), and explore the streets and surrounding mountains on your own and with a local guide. From here, take two day-trips involving a scenic train ride, a ferry through the longest fjord in Norway, and a fjord cruise to nearby waterfalls — all while returning to Bergen each night to enjoy its restaurants and nightlife.
Once you reach the small settlement of Modalen, which houses about 380 residents, you’ll turn around and head back to Bergen. As you sail through Mostraumen Strait, the boat will make a quick stop at one of the waterfalls. Your captain will bring the bow right to the edge of the cascade’s spray, allowing you to feel and sample the refreshing and clean mountain water.
