Specifically designed to give travellers the chance to see Norway's most impressive sights in a short time frame, the tours include plenty of once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

Norway in a Nutshell’ combines rail, cruise and coach travel, offering travellers a choice of seeing the majestic fjords on a two-hour traditional Classic or 90-minute high speed Premium boat journey.

Sognefjord in a Nutshell’ tour features a spectacular rail journey on the Flam Railway, as well as a scenic cruise. The real highlight of this tour though is seeing Norway's longest and deepest fjord – the rugged Sognefjord. Stretching more than 200km, it's a romantic sight couples will love.

Hardangerfjord in a Nutshell travels to Norway's second largest fjord, Hardanger. Nestled against a backdrop of snow-covered peaks and cascading waterfalls, the Queen of Fjords (as it's known) tops the list of incredible sights on this combined rail, cruise and coach round-trip tour. Other highlights include a tour through traditional farmland and through the villages of Western Norway.
