Norway in a, nutshell..
, Sep 2019
Our group decided to do the Oslo to Oslo tour. It, was, a fast paced. Twenty two hours, but scenery was majestic. Changing trains. Then buses, and ferries. Drivers.. Both train and bus conductors, and, drivers would stop for photo opportunities and beautiful points of interest. We only had two hours, at, Bergen. But this, trip gave us, a, taste, of, Flam, Myrdal and, Bergen. Someday we will go back to Bergen, This trip was, awesome.

Truly enjoyed Norway in a Nutshell tour- Oslo-Oslo. Tour is very well organised and packed with best places to see if you are pressed on time. Scenery is breathtaking and Fjords are magical. Tour is very well planed and timed. Tour is SELF-GUIDED, do your research before hand because there will be none to explain where to look and what to see. When booking tour make sure to contact tour agency to specify if you want OSLO-OSLO or OSLO-BERGEN!!! Arthur tour agent was very helpful and kept in contact with us through our journey to make sure we don't miss any ferries and busses. Make sure to bring your phone charger or power bank- trains go through high elevation and battery tend to drain very fast.
