Day 01 Hello, Bergen
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
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
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
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
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.
