Although most of us may be aware of Norway’s remarkably spectacular fjords, few appreciate that this oddly-shaped country on the edge of Europe offers so very much more. Sophisticated and cosmopolitan Oslo, is superbly located at the head of its own fjord and seems surrounded by water. From its amazing new Opera House built to resemble a glacier at the water’s edge, to its Royal Palace, art galleries and Maritime museums, this is a city which will surely surprise and delight you.   We also enjoy two of Europe’s most breath-taking rail journeys: the Oslo to Bergen plus the celebrated Flam railway – one of the world’s steepest standard-gauge railways, operating without cogs or cables. Who could forget the world’s most outstandingly majestic fjords!, stunning, beautiful and enchanting, we enjoy boat trips on two of the finest. And finally, typically Nordic Bergen – a member of the medieval Hanseatic League, crammed with charming cobbled streets and colourful buildings lining its delightful quayside.
