Day 3: 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 Lofthus. 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.

Meet your private guide and depart on foot for a walking tour of Flam and its scenic surroundings. Set out through Flam’s town center on an asphalt road, venturing up the valley alongside the Flam river. Along the way, your private guide will offer unique insights into the local culture, history, and life by the fjord. After an easy mile-long walk, continue up the mountain side on your way to the platform for the 330-foot Brekkefossen waterfall. The rocky and steep trail quickly gains elevation and soon the small village of Flam is visible through the trees. After about 30 minutes of uphill hiking, the trail opens up on a grassy ledge, offering beautiful and unimpeded views down over the village below and out into the entrance of the fjord. Take some time to take photos and admire the view before returning back to town.

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. In the historic wing of the hotel, every effort has been made to preserve the old feel of the hotel – in fact it appears much the same now as when it greeted travelers in the 19th century. 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. Visit the lobby bar to relax with a cocktail, or visit the coffee bar to enjoy a coffee in the garden.

Day 4: Flam - Gudvangen - Lofthus

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

Transfer by boat from Flam to Gudvangen, a 2 hour route that winds around precipitous mountains, mighty waterfalls and small homesteads that cling to the mountain sides. Half of your voyage will be through the majestic Naeroyfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed arm of the Sognefjord, co-ranked as the world's number one natural heritage site by the National Geographic Society.

Enjoy admission to the Njardarheimr Viking Village in the Viking Valley of Gudvangen, an open-air heritage museum where an ensemble of skilled inhabitants faithfully recreate the life of Vikings of 1,000 years past. You'll have the opportunity to actively take part in a society where people are very eager to convey the history of the vikings, how they traveled, interesting information about their boats and about how the viking era has affected modern society. Wander around freely and experience the various buildings and activities that Viking Valley has to offer. 

Meet your private driver and vehicle for a transfer to Lofthus. Approximate travel time is 2 hour 15 minutes.

Accommodation: Hotel Ullensvang

From Hotel Ullensvang in Lofthus, you can delight in breathtaking views upwards towards the Hardangervidda mountain plain and the Folgefonna glacier, and down to the majestic Hardangerfjord. The hotel has been run by the same family for five generations, and has found the perfect balance between rich traditions and modern facilities, including the wonderful Ullensvang Bath with swimming pools both indoors and outdoors, a tennis court, and a restaurant serving dishes based on wonderful local produce.

Spring in Lothus ushers in new life, revealing stretches of white and pink apple blossoms contrasting sharply with green hills and snow-capped mountains. Enjoy a beautiful setting, with the fjord as a backdrop. After walking the orchards and learning about the fruitful area, you’ll continue with a half mile walk to the ciderhouse at Alvavoll Fruit & Cider Farm. Here you’ll be treated to a tasting of their cider, made from locally-sourced apples. You'll take a drive to the scenic Hovden viewpoint, learn about the monks who brought fruit trees to Ullensvang’s fruit garden, and also make a visit to the Ullensvang Church where you’ll have a stunning view of the Folgefonna glacier, covering 80 square miles. Returning to the Alvavoll farm, you'll be treated to a delightful lunch, and followed by a transfer back to your hotel in Lofthus by car, or horse & carriage - your choice!

Meet your private driver for a transfer to Bergen today, via the Hardangerfjord. Driving along the Hardanger National Scenic Route, you're taken through some impressive scenic fjord landscapes, offering a close encounter with the Hardangerfjord, and the area's waterfalls, and orchards.

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!
