EARLY BIRD

If the date you’ve chosen indicates it’s an early bird, it means you’re one of the first 4 people to book this adventure and you’ll enjoy £50-£100 off your adventure. Don’t book your flights just yet, we’ll let you know once there are 3+ early birds and we can confirm your Flash Pack adventure.

FINAL CALL

If the date you’ve selected indicates it’s on ‘final call’, this means the adventure is departing within 30 days and we will need to confirm your place with our local team. Book to secure your place, but please do not book your international flights until we contact you. Your payment will be held during the process, but not taken until your place is confirmed. We’ll aim to get back to you within 3 working days.

INSIDER

A trip being listed as an insider means it’s our very first departure for this adventure, so we’re looking for open-minded individuals who won’t mind if things don’t go 100% according to plan. In exchange for the discount you see, we’ll be asking for detailed daily feedback that we can use to improve our adventures. It’s not for everyone, so please go to our insider page to learn more.

TRIP GUARANTEED

If the date you’ve selected indicates the trip is guaranteed, this means your chosen adventure is definitely going ahead. Once you’ve secured your spot, you can book your flights right away.

Your Itinerary

  • Day 01 Hello, Bergen

    Card image

    Welcome to Bergen, a picturesque city on the banks of a North Sea inlet, overlooking a landscape of mountains and fjords. An airport transfer will greet you off your flight and take you into the city. We recommend landing early, to give yourself plenty of time to explore the characterful streets. Take some time to explore its art galleries, meander down to its UNESCO-status waterfront or seek out the best seafood along Fisketorget Harbour. You could equally catch a cable-car up to the peak of Fløyen for panoramic views over the city and bay.

  • Day 02 Boating in the wilderness

    Card image

    Enjoy a scenic drive this morning along the coastal roads of Route 16. With a quick stop at Tvindefossen Waterfall and the UNESCO-status Nærøydalen Valley, you’ll arrive in Gudvangen, where you’ll embark on a boat trip across the fjords. Make your way across the open waters to Skjerdal Wharf, where you’ll hike 90 minutes up to a mountain goat farm. Here, you’ll learn about local methods of cheese production (with an exclusive opportunity to eat it, of course), before driving onwards to Marifjøra – a quaint village in Lustrafjorden.

    *For certain departures, you’ll be staying in Førde instead of Marifjøra. The itinerary will remain the same.

  • Day 03 Hike across Jostedal Glacier

    Card image

    Today’s star activity will see you boat across a glacial lake into Jostedalsbreen National Park, home to the mighty Jodestal Glacier (the largest in mainland Europe – which you’ll be tackling with crampons and axe). Your expert guide will lead you across the glacier, as you crawl through ice caves and navigate deep crevasses. Enjoy a picnic en route, before taking the rest of the day to hike through the forests and mountains of the national park.

    *For the departures staying in Førde, you’ll hike across Haugabreen Glacier instead.

  • Day 04 Sea-kayaking in Lustrafjorden

    Card image

    This morning will see you dive straight into four hours of sea-kayaking across Lustrafjorden. The turquoise water here flows fresh from a glacial melt further upstream, forming an inlet of cool beauty. Keep an eye out for seals and porpoises as you go, with views of the jagged mountains unfolding before you. Then, you’ll travel onwards to the lakeside town of Voss, pausing to admire remote waterfalls and mountains with no other person in sight. Upon arrival in Voss (considered the unofficial adventure capital of Norway) settle into your final night by raising a glass of the local beer.

  • Day 05 Back to Bergen

    Card image

    Begin today with a 90-minute drive back to Bergen, where we’ll drop you off at the airport before noon. It’s then over to you to arrange your flight onto your next destination. Looking for further Scandi inspiration? Take a peek at our adventures in Iceland, come snow or shine.

Important Notes

  • Fly into and out of Bergen Airport (BGO).

  • We will drop you back at the airport by midday at the latest on day 5, so please make sure you book your flight a few hours after this.

  • Please be aware that the itinerary, activities and hotels are subject to change. These changes can happen with little notice due to availability, poor weather, seasonal changes, or other circumstances beyond our control – but we’ll always do our best to ensure it has little impact on your experience. From time to time, we may also make changes to your itinerary to try out new ideas and keep things fresh and exciting.
