Gorgeous fjords, breathtaking mountains, serene lakes, gleaming glaciers, and thundering waterfalls... this is Norway, and on this Scenic Norway & Iceland tour, you’ll experience both Norway's exciting cities and the spectacular scenery, as well as the stunning beauty of Iceland.
In Oslo, guided sightseeing includes the famous Frogner Park with over 200 extraordinary bronze and granite sculptures. In the Telemark region, visit the Heddal stave church, the largest of Norway's remaining medieval wooden churches. In Bergen, hear about the city's 11th-century origins on your orientation drive. In Loen, Globus has arranged a very special experience for you: Norway’s latest spectacular tourism project, the Loen Skylift, to the top of Mount Hoven.
Also, spend time in the Hardangerfjord region, and stop at thundering Låtefoss twin-waterfall, one of Norway's best known waterfalls; take a ferry; and see Hardangervidda mountain plateau, one of Europe's largest and home to Northern Europe's largest stock of reindeer. In this area, visit a fruit farm and meet the family who has owned it for 8 generations. Hear their history and how cider is made. While tasting apple juice and cider, enjoy the lunch Globus has arranged for you.
But that's not all… enjoy a spectacular cruise on the Sognefjord, Norway's longest fjord, with its Nærøyfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a stop to see one of the mighty branches that radiate from Jostedal Glacier, Europe's largest glacier. Another tour highlight is a cruise past the famous "Seven Sisters," the most photographed waterfalls in Geirangerfjord, then, travel above the tree line to 5,000 feet for breathtaking panoramic views of the fjord and the surrounding peaks from the mountaintop lookout at Dalsnibba.
Next, fly to Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital, for a six-day tour to experience Iceland’s gems: watch whales in their natural habitat, see the area where the most spectacular scenes of the James Bond movie Die Another Day were filmed, and much more!
These are just some of the many highlights on this Norway & Iceland tour. It’s an amazing holiday!
