The trip begins with a drive up the Eagle Road, enjoying magnificent views of Geirangerfjord en route to the beautiful Eidsdal Lake. From there a picturesque ferry ride from Eidsdal to Linge. Back on dry land, you head for the stark, wild, high-alpine areas, stopping en route for photos at the impressive Gudbrandsjuvet gorge.

As the bus continues from here, you reach one of the many highlights of this trip; the series of 11 hairpin bends down the winding Trollstigen Pass* (hairpin road). At the bottom you will be served a hot drink and a bite to eat before you continue on to the gentler landscape of the Romsdalsfjord. The trip concludes with dinner in Molde before meeting the Hurtigruten ship again.

*Unfortunately, the Trollstigen hairpin road will be closed for the remainder of 2024 due to safety reasons and high risk of rockslides. There will be an alternative route from atop the Trollstigen viewpoint via Sjøholt to Molde.

What our customers say:

  • I wanted to thank everybody. We had a wonderful trip. Everything went well and fortunately we had the chance to see the lights while on the cruise. All my friends in Turkey would like to go on a similar trip. So I will be in touch with you. Thanks again and best wishes to all of you.

  • On behalf of the group I would like to thank you and your colleagues for organizing our wonderful tour of Norway. Everything went very well including the weather, which was spectacular. We enjoyed all the hotels, the central locations you chose and the amenities, especially the lavish breakfasts. Three extra days in Oslo allowed us to tour the city at our leisure and to enjoy more of the important sights including the newly opened National Museum. The Norway in a Nutshell tour was amazing and made much easier by using your recommended porterage service between hotels in Oslo and Bergen. Both the train journeys and the boat trip were spectacular, and combined with a night in the beautiful Kviknes Hotel made for an unforgettable two days. We were very impressed by the Hurtigruten cruise, particularly the way they combined a working ship with a cruise ship, the comfortable accommodations, the food and service. It was fascinating to visit all the various ports, islands and fjords and the two included tours were excellent and informative. In the end we were glad to have the extra night in Kirkenes, to visit their lovely museum and take a trip to the Russian border. It was a good way to end the tour. Again, thank for staying with us through 2 years of pandemic postponements and changes. We certainly will recommend Fjord Travel in the future.

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.
