All Photos this Page © Home At First

 

          Norwegians have always been great mariners. This itinerary's dramatic coastal scenery shows you why. Its stops at 4 (or 5) historic harbors shows you where:

• Oslo: Norway's world-class capital on the Oslo Fjord

• Lillesand or Kristiansand: southernmost Norway at the mouth of the Skagerrak straits

• Stavanger: modern oil port on the southern North Sea fjords

• utne (optional stop): traditional farm village on the shore of the imposing Hardanger Fjord

Bergen's medieval Bryggen waterfront is a listed World Heritage Site. Photo © Home At First.

Basic Program Features

Start at royal Oslo, Norway’s vibrant, modern capital at the head of the Oslo Fjord. Discover the royal palace, Oslo’s great harbor with its Viking Ship, Kon Tiki, and Maritime museums, and the remarkable sculpture of Vigeland’s Park.

South to SOUTHERN NORWAY. Travel by car or rail(4-6 hours) southwest along the fjord to the pretty seaside resort of Lillesand (accessible by car only) or Norway’s southernmost city, Kristiansand. Coastal cruise boats will take you to near-shore islands. Discover Viking settlements, lighthouses, even Nazi gun emplacements. The seafood is always great!

West to Stavanger. Drive or rail northwest (3-5  hours) to Stavanger — former embarkation point for Norwegian emigration to the New World

when Norway was poor, and a center of North Sea oil operations now that Norway is rich. Old Stavanger and the Vεgen harborside are great for strolling. Take a cruise to the nearby Lysefjord with its dramatic Pulpit Rock cliff.

North by bus to Bergen. Travel about 5 hours by bus from Stavanger through the rugged, mountain & fjord scenery of Norway’s West Coast to Bergen, famed second city of 7 fjords and 7 mountains. Discover the lively (& walkable) Bryggen harbor district, a United Nations listed World Heritage Site.

OPTION: North by Car to the Hardanger Fjord. Instead of traveling by bus to Bergen, drive your rental car (6-8 hours) from Stavanger on a dramatic fjord and mountain route (with 2-3 short ferry crossings) to the Hardanger Fjord. Stay at least one night at our small, traditional fjord-side hotel on the Hardanger. Explore this scenic region of fjords, mountains, waterfalls, and glaciers. Continue by car to Bergen (2-3    hours).

Explore the Fjords from Bergen. From Bergen, numerous optional side trips to the dramatic Hardanger and Sogne fjords may be arranged, including the famous "Norway in a Nutshell" rail + boat + bus excursion. Fly home from Bergen.
