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.

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.

  • Anish K — July 10, 2019 — Europe

    Everything A to Z was perfectly planned. The quality of the tours, guides and hotels was excellent! There were no hiccups and always numbers to call with any questions. It was a trip of a lifetime!

  • Robert G — May 25, 2019 — Europe

    We spent 14 days in Athens and three Greek islands. We took eight excursions and had four transfers from ports to hotels. Every transfer was on time, welcoming and eager to provide as much information as they could about the island. Every excursion and guide we had was punctual, polite, professional and very knowledgeable about the toured area. The vacation was everything we had hoped for. Kensington, and in particular Alyssa, were wonderful in helping us plan our trip and make it a wonderful success.

  • Barbara F — May 14, 2019 — Europe

    We could not have chosen a better company. The professionalism of all involved in planning our trip was beyond our expectation. We were so pleased that we have already booked our next trip with Kensington.

  • Claudia C — June 07, 2019 — Europe

    Alyssa Page did a marvellous job. We couldn't have been more pleased with her suggestions and arrangements. She booked the right amount of time in each of 4 places, and wonderful hotels and tours, timely responding to my multitude of questions pre-trip. She made all logistics easy and it all flowed so smoothly. I give her five stars.

  • Pamela W — June 07, 2019 — Europe

    My mom and I had such an awesome trip. It was the best thing we could have done together. We celebrated her 79th birthday in London and the guide and driver were awesome. It was also nice to have the same driver for all the tours. In France, our guide and driver went above and beyond for us. They were both so amazing. I can't believe the experience we had and I'm sure this will be my new way of travel.

  • Mary W — May 05, 2019 — Europe

    My Kensington Tours Destination Expert, Jessica Clements, was so helpful and patient as we planned our trip. She was so helpful in recommending things based on her experience and so patient as our dates changed, and we had more ideas about what we wanted to see. Once we got to Greece, our pickups and transfers were seamless. Our tour guides, drivers and destination greeters were all so warm and welcoming. The hotels were fantastic in terms of service and location. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I have already recommended Kensington to several friends.

  • Rita B — April 24, 2019 — Europe

    Our entire visit to Poland was outstanding, first-class. Booking the tour with Karolina Stringer made it so easy. All I did was tell her the places we needed to visit and what was the feel we wanted for the visit. Not only did we want to see the landmarks of Poland, but we also wanted time to walk the squares, sit in the cafes, take public transportation. Everyone we encountered in Poland was top-notch. Our guide for Gdansk was Ewelina Danecka. This amazing woman enchanted us with her knowledge and her joy in sharing her country with us. On our first day, I requested we reverse the first two days of our plan and she was totally flexible. I gave her the name of a very obscure town and she and the driver found it! Ewelina acted as my interpreter with the parish priests of the two towns we specifically needed to visit for our family research. She and our driver stayed with us an extra two hours after they were scheduled to be done for the evening and because of their generosity we saw Wawel Castle, which wasn't on our schedule, we loved it! Our three days with Ewelina were so intense and emotional that we felt we were leaving family when we said goodbye to her. The Hanza Hotel was wonderful, overlooking the riverfront. Warsaw was waiting for us and so was Agnieszka Tomazuk. Agnieszka was wonderful. We were specifically interested to visit the Warsaw ghetto and the war monuments commemorating the valor of the Poles during the WW2. And we were very interested to know about the Polish life under communism. I specifically requested a "good" Chopin concert. We didn't get good, we got a brilliant concert given by Agnieszka Przemyk-Bryla, in the Szuster Palace, not some impersonal concert hall. Her passion for the music combined with her technical ability made that evening unforgettable. The Polonia Palace Hotel was very nice, though not quite within walking distance to the Warsaw town square. On the way to Krakow we stopped at Jasna Gora to see the Madonna. We were guided and educated by one of the nuns of the Monastery. Totally awesome. We could not have done Krakow without our guide, Marta Bochenek. She made sure we knew not just what we were getting into when we went into the Wieliczka Salt Mine, but how to get out and meet up with her, since there were not one, but two exits from the mine. And when we went to Auschwitz, Marta very wisely said that she would be waiting if we decided not to go to the Birkenau portion of the concentration camp visit. Respectfully and reverently done as it was, Auschwitz was so powerful, we decided not to go on to Birkenau. I'm so glad we did go to Auschwitz. The Sheraton Krakow was very fine. Our first cup of "real" coffee in Poland. Most of the hotels' coffee is made from Nescafe or some instant coffee. The coffee at the Sheraton Krakow was really whole roasted coffee. Kensington Tours is contracting with the first class tour agency in Poland. We could not be more satisfied with our entire experience. The mood of our tour exactly matched the attitude I relayed to Karolina at the very beginning of our planning. This trip felt like it was planned just for us. This is our second time using Kensington Tours. Like the first trip, this was OUR tour.

  • Marilyn R — April 22, 2019 — Europe

    The absolute best trip to Europe we have ever taken. The entire process was flawless: best hotels, best guides, etc. This experience was new to us, but now it’s the only when I will travel! Kensington tours was the best. A truly 5-star experience from beginning to the end!

  • Sharayu T — May 13, 2019 — Europe

    The Eastern Europe trip was fabulous. Everything went smoothly. The guides and drivers were excellent. We enjoyed the trip immensely. To begin with, our arrival at Budapest train station and meeting up with Mr. Sandor went flawlessly. We were a little anxious as the main train station was closed, but when we got down at Budapest Kelenfold, it was such a relief to see Mr. Sandor waiting for us. All our guides, Sandor, Bozena, Agnieszka, and Sandra were very knowledgeable, friendly, and adaptable. They intermixed personal stories and anecdotes that made understanding the history and culture at each place very gratifying. The accommodations were comfortable, and the locations were perfect. Eastern Europe with its old traditions and architecture, and the suppressed existence during Nazi and Russian occupations offers a very different and distinctive experience. Thanks to Jessica Clements for facilitating a unique travel itinerary.

  • Mary Ann C — April 09, 2019 — Europe

    Courtney was wonderful. She worked through all of my concerns and was very flexible when Delta caused a plan change. Her responses to my requests were promptly answered and her communication with me was excellent. Petur, our guide, was a delight. We enjoyed Iceland and his thorough knowledge helped us to experience all the country had to offer.
