Day 7: Oslo - Flam

For your added comfort, your luggage will be picked up at your hotel in Oslo and safely transferred to your upcoming hotel in Bergen. With luggage being taken care of, you can sit back and enjoy your train journey hassle-free, taking in the breathtaking views along the way.

Take a short, self-guided walking transfer to the Oslo Central Train Station, located two minutes from your hotel.

Transfer from Oslo to Flam today by train, with a connection in Myrdal. The Bergen Railway is a unique experience on Northern Europe's highest-altitude railway line. One of the greatest challenges is the harsh and quickly changing weather. The line is exposed to deep low-pressure centers from the west, which can mean strong winds and heavy snow for part of the year. Keeping the railway open demands great effort and technical expertise. Today, skilled workers, effective equipment, tunnels and snow tunnels make the Bergen Railway one of the safest and most comfortable ways of travelling between Oslo and Bergen. The line is consistently ranked among the top rail experiences in the world. Four stops before the end of the line in Bergen, you'll disembark in Myrdal. In Myrdal, board a cogwheel train to Flam on the Flam Railway. The scenic 12-mile route between Myrdal and Flam is one of the steepest non-rack railway tracks in the world and provides some of Norway's wildest and most magnificent scenery. On the ride you can see rivers that cut through deep ravines, waterfalls cascade down the side of steep, snow-capped mountains, and mountain farms cling dizzily to sheer slopes. There are also a few spirals along the route which allow trains to rise on a steady curve until it has completed a loop, passing over itself as it gains height, allowing the railway to gain vertical elevation in a relatively short distance.

Take a short, self-guided walking transfer. Hotels in Flam are all located within just a few minutes of the Train Station.

Setting out from the pier on a small, specially-designed RIB boat, your captain and guide will take you and a small group of participants on a picturesque fjord safari up the Aurlandsfjord and into the Naeroyfjord, which makes up part of the West Norwegian Fjords UNESCO World Heritage Site. Cruise toward Gudvangen at the end of the fjord, using it as your turning point. This is the narrowest part of the fjord where the dramatic cliffsides converge, creating an ever impressive stretch of scenery. You'll head back to Flam on the other side of the fjord for a different view, stopping along the way to admire the scenery, looking to spot seals, porpoises, and eagles. Hear about the fjord, local history, and the wildlife, along with tales, and legends, from various places of interest. At Undredal, you'll go ashore to enjoy this little village squeezed in between a tall mountain. Inhabited by 65 people and almost 500 goats, it's no surprise that the specialty of this village is the production of goat cheese, which you'll get to sample at a local cafe! You will also hear about the tradition of cheese production, and you listen to folktales and folk songs before returning to Flam.

Enjoy an included dinner this evening at Fretheim Hotel. The hotel restaurant, Arven, has a view looking straight toward the fjord, and locally-sourced ingredients is at the heart of its cuisine, which is only natural when some of the best producers of cheese, meat, fruits and vegetables are right outside the door!

Accommodation: Fretheim

Dating back to the 1870's, Fretheim Hotel is a beautiful white timber building situated in Flam, at the head of a scenic arm of the famous Sognefjord.

All 122 comfortable guestrooms offer views of the hiking trails and mountains surrounding the property, or the beautiful fjord. Dine at the hotel’s restaurant, which prides itself on serving locally grown and raised ingredients, while offering views looking straight towards the fjord.

The hotels on the islands were stunning, and our private tour guides at each stop easily accommodated our individual wishes. Our trip was the perfect mix of relaxation and exploration.

    I cannot tell you how impressed we were with your services. Everything from the drivers to the hotels to guides was five stars! We never had to wait in line and were treated like royalty. I highly recommend the private boat ride/tour to Capri. It was fabulous! We had never been to Italy and left feeling like we learned so much. We fell in love with the people and culture. We cannot wait to have Kensington book our next adventure.

    It was the first time we have used a company of this nature to manage our bookings. Most often I book my rooms, and tours, but after this experience, I would definetely use Kensington again for a trip of this type. Our Destination truly supported us and allowed us to make changes until the plan was just perfect for us. This truly showed when we were in country and everthing went off perfectly. I was worried to have other book items on my families behalf seeing as we were traveling with kids (age 8 and 10), but I feel our destination Expert did take that into account and it was perfect.

    There is so much to say about this amazing family trip to northern Spain we just came home from, but in short, the trip was even more than we could have hoped for - From the planning to the tour guides, drivers and accommodations our needs were met and in most cases surpassed. There is no way the trip could have been as successful without the help of Maryanne from Kensington Tours and her team.

    Our Iceland trip was fantastic. From planning with Melissa (many times over until we had it right) to being greeted in Iceland and all of the wonderful tours we took, we had a fabulous time. Our guide, Sigga, was excellent. She guided us, told us tales of Iceland, was extremely accommodating with my elderly mom. We enjoyed being with her very much. Inke, our guide to the glacier, was also wonderful. We had a great time and felt Kensington did a fabulous job. Thanks!

    The trip overall was amazing and all the activities and travel plans went so very smoothly. Our whole familiy really enjoyed every day of the trip. Patrick McCallion, the expert from your agency who helped us, was awesome! He not only set up everything perfectly for us but helped us with reservations for dinners at fine dining places and answered many questions we had in advance. We did leave our glasses in the van at one point in Barcelona and had to contact the local agent who quickly retrieved the glasses for us without any problem. We highly recommend this agency given the quality of the experience, the smoothness of the itinerary, and the flexibility to tailored the experience to our needs. Thank

    This was our 6th Kensington tour. We have gone as a couple on trips and taken our children sometimes to destinations all over the world. We have never been disappointed and have had the most personal and professional service. We would not even consider using anyone else. Thank you Alania for everything! Our most recent trip to Russia and Scandinavia was fabulous and perfectly planned!
