Hit the E16 road in your private vehicle, traveling by the famous Dale of Norway sweater factory in the village of Dale, then through the town of Voss. Make a brief stop at the Tvindefossen waterfall for photos, take a deep breath of mountain air to smell the clean, pristine waters. 

Continue your trip to the Stalheim Hotel to visit its well-known terrace, which opens up to fantastic views over the Nærøydalen Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Back in your vehicle, descend the dramatically steep Stalheimskleiva Road to the valley's floor (available from May till September only), where you will visit the ancient village of Gudvangen.

Depart from Gudvangen on a cruise (if option selected) to Flåm, exploring the area around the Aulandsfjord and Nærøyfjord. Choose between a RIB, a motor yacht, and a passenger ferry for your cruise. 

Upon arrival at Flåm, enjoy lunch in a local restaurant (own expense), then enjoy free time to browse the souvenir shops, the museum of Flåmsbana railway, or the local microbrewery at your leisure. After lunch, get back in the car and head towards the scenic Stegastein viewing point, a 30-meter long platform hanging over Aurlandsfjord at 650 meters above sea level (from May till September only, otherwise upon special request). The narrow road and the viewing point will give you some breathtaking pictures and vivid emotions.

If you selected the cruise and train option, board the Flåmsbana railway from Flåm to the mountain railway station Myrdal, located 2,844 feet (867m) above sea level. During the scenic journey, have your camera ready for views of canyons, mountainsides, and waterfalls. Make a brief stop at the gushing Kjøsfossen waterfall. Change trains at Myrdal to head back to Voss; upon arrival, you can tour a medieval church dating from 1277 and an 11th-century stone cross. 

Lastly, take the return journey by car to your hotel in Bergen to conclude your tour.

Some great scenery - but not sure it was value for money
Haggerdoo
, Nov 2019
Nice electric boat ride for 2 hours in the Fjords and two 50 minute train rides in the snowy mountains were lovely - but at £1800 plus for four people it seemed way overpriced - our guide Matt wasn't very talkative - not what you expect from a tour guide - he was pretty much a glorified driver.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are very sorry that you had such an unpleasant experience with our tour guide. We try to make each and every one of our tours in a way custom made by adjusting nuances to the needs and wants of our customers, but it seems that we didn't succeed this time. Regarding the price of the tour - it includes tickets to services like boat ride, train, and car expenses (toll roads, gasoline, driver's man hours, etc.) all of these services are rather pricey in Norway. We will most certainly take your opinion into consideration to improve our services in the future. Easy Travel Team Arturs

Frustrating private tour

Our tour guide failed to adequately explain anything about the place, etc. It was just a ride from Bergen to board the ship, then picked us up at the end of the train ride to take us back to the hotel. No added info . Definitely below expectations

Our guide only acted as transfer companion . He didnt give any information like a guide normally does. Plus He was supposed to take us to the hotel stalheim to see the valley but we only passed it . Not happy with his service at all .

Enjoyed our tour and were able to see all the main sights thanks to a hassle free tour with our guide Frode. He had a lot of information to share and was very helpful. Having him to drive us around saved a lot of time. Highly recommended

Private Tour for Two in New and Very Comfortable Mercedes Motor Coach

We booked this tour because we wanted a private tour to the Dale of Norway Factory and this seemed to be the best way to get there. And it was a perfect day! Our guide, Ray, showed up exactly on time in an extremely comfortable Mercedes Motor Coach. He was great!! Not only was he an excellent driver and tour guide, but he was willing to take us to the Factory and wait patiently while we spent over an hour shopping. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants a private tour!!

Our driver/guide, vehicles including the ferry and the sites were all amazing! It was a good idea the we did the tour the other way around, we started with the train to Flam then the cruise to Gudvangen. It seemed like we avoided the usual crowd. :)

Excellent, Personalized Tour

We were looking at Norway in a Nutshell and realized that it was basically a bunch of public transit tickets lined together. That in itself is fine but we also has visions of moving in a big pack of people which we were not that keen about. This tour work out to be about $250 more for three people and we all agreed that it was worth every penny. Raivis was our guide and was always on top of things. He also has a good sense of humor and was able to banter with three 50 somethings despite being half our age. Pick up was on time in a comfortable Mercedes van. Raivis kept us on time which was important the first half of the day as you have a boat and a train to catch. The stops are as outlined in the tour info. We were escorted up to the entrance of the boat and Raivis met us on arrival at Voss, spent some time with us at lunch, made sure we got to the train in time to get the best seats and told us where to sit for the best views. This is the easiest way to do this trip. They show you the highlights, keep you on schedule and book all of the tickets in advance. All you have to do is pay and show up. I got the impression that Raivis would have taken us around for another hour or so upon arrival in Voss. We chose to go back to Bergen as we had a full day and were back at the hotel by 6:15 pm. Keep in mind that the minimum number of people they will do this tour for is three and the per person price gets a bit cheaper the more people on it. Recommended.

Amazing day touring the fjords
Mona M
, Jul 2018
Our family had an amazing day w/our guide Igor. He had an incredible depth of knowledge of the area including history, geopolitics, economy, folklore, etc. No question we had went unanswered. Day was flexible with lots of time in the car but scenery was breathtaking. Fjord cruise was the highlight! Train ride was lovely. Would highly recommend. Of note- we had our 4 children along (ages 9,12,14,15)
