Itinerary

Arrival in Stavanger and transfer from the airport to the center. Depending on the time of the flight, we will have more or less free time to visit the city. We recommend visiting the old town, with the best-preserved settlement of white wooden houses in Europe, the port, its museums and the lively center.

Accommodation in Stavanger.

Dinner on your own.

Today we will have to get up early, since we will do one of the most exciting treks of the trip. During the early morning we will make the ascent to Preikestolen, also known as the Pulpit. We will begin our route on foot in the middle of the night gloom and after approximately 2.5 hours of walking we will reach the top, to experience a sublime encounter with wild nature in a different way, fleeing from the tourist masses. We are at the most popular natural viewpoint in Norway with a free fall of 604 meters. We will contemplate one of the best sunrises, enjoying the spectacular effects of sunlight illuminating the impressive steep cliff, which rises over the beautiful Lysefjord or Fjord of Light. After having seen one of the most overwhelming views of our trip, we will set off for our return.

Note: Depending on the date, the weather and other factors (such as the influx of visitors), the guide will decide the best time to do this excursion. After this we will visit the Sverd i Fjell monument, next to the Hafr fjord, characteristic for its three Viking swords that symbolize peace, unity and freedom in Norwegian history. In the afternoon, we will have free time to continue touring Stavanger, approaching the port and taking any boat that will take us to learn more about the Lysefjord.

Today we will leave Stavanger behind to embark on a mini Cruise through the Fjords to reach Bergen, a city that is surrounded by the seven mountains and is known as “the gate of the fjords”.

We will have the afternoon free to visit the second largest city in the country, Bergen, with great cultural history and Viking origins. We recommend strolling through the lively and picturesque streets of the Bryggen neighborhood, famous for being the Hanseatic quay declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, where we can buy some souvenirs in its craft shops. We recommend tasting a delicious local fish in the traditional market, with views of its beautiful houses full of colour.

We’ll start the day with a short visit to the Steinsdalsfossen waterfall, famous for allowing travelers to pass behind the water column. After this, we will prepare to go kayaking in Hardangerfjorden, the second largest fjord in the country located on the south coast and which we will access by the longest suspension bridge in Norway, the Hardangerbrua with 1380 meters in length.

Our local guide will give us all the necessary instructions for this activity in which it is not necessary to have previous experience. We will sail through the calm waters of the fjord, enjoying an indescribable image, observing the clouds reflected in its crystal clear and turquoise waters characteristic of Norway, “the country of mirrors and majestic mountains”. 

In addition, we will be lucky if we have the opportunity to spot seals and porpoises since they tend to frequent this area. After this, we will approach on foot through an impressive canyon that will take us to the Vøringfossen waterfall with a fall of 180 meters high, an incomparable wonder in which we can relax listening to the force of the falling water, moving away from worries and feeling part of nature. We will also approach its viewpoint from where we can capture a different perspective of the environment.

An intense day awaits us, full of experiences. We will head in our vehicle towards the Fjord of Dreams, also known as Sognefjorden, the longest and deepest in Norway and the second largest in the world, with its 204 kilometers in length. 

We will arrive at the picturesque town of Flåm where we will explore the fjords in a different way. We will go on a zodiac navigation through the Nærøyfjorden, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. An exciting activity in which we can enjoy the natural magic of its vertical mountains raised before us, waterfalls and small rural villages on the shores of the fjord. Even if they show up, we may spot seals, porpoises, and ospreys. 

In the afternoon, we will continue to see another branch of the Fjord of Dreams, with the famous Flåm train, which has been described as one of the most beautiful train journeys in the world. The tour will take us from the end of the Aurlandsfjord to the high mountains of Myrdal station. We will return from there on a relaxing bike ride taking the picturesque Ruta de los Camineros which was built for the transport of merchandise and train workers in the 19th century. We will save a drop of 865 meters to the valley and we will enjoy the landscape and the numerous waterfalls that we will find on the way.

On the way to our accommodation, we will continue enjoying the mountainous landscape through the Las Nieves tourist highway. We will make a stop at one of the most impressive architectural infrastructures in the country, the Stegastein viewpoint from where we will enjoy truly unique views.

Accommodation in the surroundings of Jostedalsbreen.

Dinner included.

On this day we will go to the largest Glacier in Continental Europe, the Jostedalsbreen, for a guided excursion with crampons through the impressive ice towers and deep blue crevasses, an activity for which it is not necessary to have previous experience. To get to the base of the glacier we will take a boat that will cross the Nirgardsbrevatnet lake and that will give us access to the Nature Reserve.

Accommodation in the surroundings of Innvikfjord.

After our breakfast, we will head towards the Geiranger Fjord declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site for its beauty and exuberant nature.

Next we will take the famous Trollstingen panoramic road, famous for its 180º curves and where we will make a brief stop to see the Trolls waterfall, known as Tvindefossen and characteristic for the multitude of streams that fall along its hill. In the afternoon we will arrive in Ålesund, a city that extends between several islands scattered in the Atlantic and known for its unique Art Noveau architecture, making it the cultural center of the region and chosen by National Geographic as one of the most beautiful port cities in Europe.

Note: The itinerary can be done in one direction or another without distinction. For logistics reasons in the country, some location or accommodation may change without prior notice. This does not usually happen, but Norway is one of the world destinations with the greatest increase in travelers in recent years and on certain occasions we have had to make small changes on the fly for external reasons.
