Bergen by chelmsford99 on 24 January 2005 11:52pm
Hi all
I an traveling around Norway at the end of May / begining of June, spending a lagre part of my trip in and around Bergen / Voss. I was hoping to include the tour 'Norway in a nutshell' (recommended by the Tourist Office), as part of my trip. Has anyone done this tour? Could anyone suggest other places to visit in the area?

I did the "Norway in a nutshell" a few years back. If the weather is right it will take your breath away.

Big tip: try and stand at the front of the boat for the boat part, don't sit on the top deck or upper deck. The view I got from there will stay with me for the rest of my life.

Hi, thanks for the info.
Do you buy a ticket for the whole Norway in a nutshell tour or is it made up separate train,boat and bus trips?

I bought mine from Bergen railway station, it's one ticket.

I arrived there after taking the train from Oslo - another gob-smackingly-beautiful journey.

I did "Norway in a Nutshell" last April, doing it as a round trip from Oslo and spending a couple days in Bergen. It was beautiful with all the snow, although the downside of being there off season was fewer things were open.

I agree with the "stand at the front of the boat" comment! That's where I was glued through the fjords.
