Fjord Tour in Norway

I would like to take a fjord tour this summer when I am in Oslo.

Should I travel to Bergen and take a tour from here, or go on the Geiranger fjord?

Which fjord offers the best views and experience?
What is the price of each (approximate)?
How long is needed for each, including travel to and from Oslo?

Well you can't beat the fjord experience of the Norway In a Nutshell excursion which you can easily do on your own from Oslo in a day - take train to Voss - mountain bus to Gudvagen, on fjord and few-hour boat ride to Flam - scenic mountain railway to Myrdhal and trains back to Oslo - or vice versa. Long day but gorgeous scenes and easily do from Oslo.

Sources with some nice info on the NIN (lots of tours too) check BETS-European Rail Experts and

Not familiar with other fjord tour from Bergen but to go to Bergen and do tour would probably require an overnight in Bergen?

Why not just google fjord tours near Oslo. I’m sure you will get a number of possibilities. There are options other than Norway in a Nutshell.

Yeh but part of the lure of NIN from Oslo is you get to ride one of Europe's most scenic railways to Myrdhal - the Oslo-Bergen Railway

And NIN plies Norway's largest fjord = we saw whales there!

Don't know about other fjords that may be closer to Oslo however so maybe they are just as neat.
