  • Arrive in Oslo – Alesund

    After clearing immigration in Oslo, we will proceed to the domestic terminal in Oslo (same building) to board a flight to the central coastal town of Ålesund.

  • Alesund - Loen

    Today will be a relaxed morning post breakfast, we will have a leisure walk in the serene
    surroundings near the hotel. Later we will start a road journey to Loen. Loen is a small town located in Nordfjord. The route will take us through scenic landscapes, including fjord, and mountains that makes it a beautiful drive. Overnight stay in Leon.

  • Loen

    We will visit a horse farm and then continue to Oldedalen. Here we will take a Troll Car to the mouth of the Briksdalen Glacier, the longest glacier in Europe. We will have a chance to see the blue façade of the glacier as we see it towering upwards. We will get to walk closer to the glacier into the Jostedal Glacier National Park. Dinner and overnight stay at the hotel in Leon.

  • Loen - Andalsnes

    Today enjoy a cruise on the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Geirangerfjord, as it is one of the narrowest Fjords in Norway. We will get a chance to discover the romantic mountain farms, and snow-capped mountain peaks. We will experience the deep blue water, green valleys, waterfalls such as ‘Seven Sisters’ and ‘Bridal Veil’. We will reach Andalsnes known for its stunning natural surroundings. Overnight in Andalsnes.

  • Andalsnes to Bodo

    After breakfast, we will have a scenic and memorable journey through one of the Norway’s most stunning landscapes. We will travel by the Atlantic route to Trondheim airport to board the flight to Bodo. Check-in at the hotel in the city centre in Bodo for dinner and overnight stay.

  • Bodo to Svolvaer

    From Bodø, we will take a ferry to reach the village of Moskenes, the southern end of the most scenic Lofoten Islands. We will reach Moskenes and then visit the tip of the Lofoten Islands. We will take in the scenic E 10 highway stopping at tiny villages for pictures and soaking in the surrounding. Dinner will be arranged in the hotel and later we will go to the open sea to catch the midnight sun. Overnight in Svolvær, a fishing village on the Island.

  • Svolvaer

    We would wake up late and have a leisurely breakfast. In the morning, we will first visit the village of Hennigsvaer where the houses are beautifully located on the bay. Later we will head out to the narrow Trollfjord on a Sea Eagle Safari on a local boat where we would also have a chance to do some fishing. On our return to the hotel, we will have an evening at leisure.

  • Svolvaer - Senja

    We will continue this morning on the E 10 before branching out to the island of Andoya and on it the port town of Andenes. From Andenes, we will take the ferry on first the open sea and then through the Gryllefjord to reach the Island of Senja. The Island, a cousin of the Lofoten Islands, gives it tough competition in terms of the scenery. However, the smaller number of people coming here means greater peace, and this is where it is different. The stay tonight is adjacent to the North Sea in fishing cabins. We will have yet another chance to see the midnight sun tonight.

  • Senja - Tromso

    After breakfast, we will take our last ferry of the tour to the Island of Tromsø. Once in Tromsø, we will have a city tour and take the cable car to the top to catch a breathtaking view of this city. Dinner and overnight stay at the hotel in Tromso.

  • Tromso - Mumbai

    Transfer to the airport for your flight to Oslo and to Mumbai from there.

  • Norway is the star of Scandinavia. Also, in Norway, the scenery in the Fjordland and the Arctics will steal your breath away.

  • The Norway tour is for people who do not want to indulge in city sightseeing tours and just want to be with nature. If you want to experience the best of both Cities and Nature then Scandinavia Summer would be a better option.

  • Norway is far up north and so the choice of veggies is limited, however, we take care that the vegetarians do not sleep hungry. There is a lot of fish on offer, especially Salmon.

  • The more time one spends above the Arctics in Norway, the costlier the tour gets. As we spend 5 nights above the Arctic Circle out of the 8 nights on the tour our tour spends time in the most beautiful place in Europe but there is a price to pay for this experience.
