Our Norwegian Short Break begins in the mountainous town of Voss, perfectly located in the heart of Fjord Norway between the famous fjords Sognefjord and Hardangerfjord. From Voss you travel by scenic train to the grand, yet small village of Flåm, home to the famously steep and breath-taking Flåmsbana Railway (we highly recommend embarking on this journey if time allows – you would be best to add an extra night here if you wish to do so). Your last stop is the World Heritage City of Bergen which you reach by either train or ferry from Flåm (an experience in itself!). For each overnight stop we offer a wide variety of documented walks, so plenty to choose from!

We have chosen a wide variety of walks that suit all abilities and interests, some of which climb up the rugged terrain offering the most dramatic views across the fjords whilst, some give you the opportunity to explore interesting museums, lush vegetation and local wildlife.

Translucent deep lakes and roaring waterfalls are easily spotted along these walks, you may also sample the local cider, fruit juices, smoked lamb and other produce. The views of striking landscapes are incomparable all around this fascinating kingdom. Our holidays will appeal to those who not only wish to gain some unforgettable memories of this unique country but also to explore it close up.

Extra Nights

Why not add an extra night in Flåm? This will give you the opportunity to embark on the once in a lifetime experience that is the Flåmsbana Railway.

Availability Information

The season for walking in Norway is between May and September however this is dependent on how much snowfall there has been as too much can make some of the walks difficult or even impossible. However, if there has been heavy snowfall, there will still be many lower level walks available as well as the spectacular sights and ferry/train journeys. The best time to go would be June-August when it is warmest and least likely to be affected by snow.

Please note our best to go information is generally referring to the walking which may fall in the early or late season in some places. This may mean that not all tourist facilities will be open at the time you visit.
