Norway in a nutshell in Winter Itinerary

Jump to last reply

I am going to norway at the end of november around thanksgiving and i want to do Norway in a nutshell 1 way from Bergen to Oslo. Because of the limited daylight hours, I want to do the first leg from Bergen to Flam on day 1 in the morning (which will end at approx 2pm before sunset at 4pm) and then start the 2nd leg of the trip in the morning from Flam to Oslo to also maximize daylight hours. I hear that the 2nd part of the trip has some of the most breathtaking views that will be lost if we do a 1 day trip from Bergen to Oslo. My problem is when I go to the fjordtour.com website and go to book the tour, the schedule has me leaving Flam at 2pm (right before it gets dark, as if i didn't select to stay in flam overnight) ... Are these tickets that you buy through fjord tours (and other websites) interchangeable for other times of day? I am getting conflicting information -- where some people say, it's hard to get left behind bc you can just catch the next train. Would the same hold true for catching an earlier train?

I know that we can book everything ourselves for about $60 cheaper, but to me it's not worth the hassle or risk of messing something up, so I'd rather they do it for me.

Any one have any knowledge of how these tickets work?

One last question I had was duration in each city.... on the website it gives you very little time between stops. Is there not a place to walk around in each city where you may want to linger for an hour or grab lunch?

Any and all help is appreciated!!! Thanks so much!
