DISCOVERING THE NORWAY FJORDS (Bergen/Voss/Gudvangen/Flam/Myrdal/Bergen)
Ready to experience a wonderful day discovering the Norwegian fjords? We will depart from Bergen by Train to Voss, from there a bus will take us to Gudvangen where we will board a ship to take a boat trip on the Nærøyfjord and Aurlandsfjord to Flåm. From there, we will take the Flåm Railway to Myrdal, the famous Flåmsbana, one of the most beautiful scenic railways in the world. Once we arrive in Myrdal, we will head back towards Bergen. Return to Bergen for the evening, free dinner and overnight.
FLYING NORTH: NEXT STOP NARVIK & LOFOTEN ISLANDS
(Domestic Flight Bergen (BGO) – Narvik (EVE) / NOT INCLUDED – See Details Below)
We continue north and with an internal flight (NOT INCLUDED) we will reach Narvik (Remember that the flights are managed incompletely autonomous). Upon arrival we will rent our cars and start the real adventure by exploring this beautiful region, full of fjords and mountains overlooking the sea. We will advance to Henningsvær where we will stay for the night in a typical Norwegian lodging.
SOUTH LOFOTEN (Hamnoy, Reine and Å)
Today we will set off to discover the southern islands: Hamnøy, Reine and the village of Å. We will explore Hamnøy, one of the oldest fishing villages in the entire archipelago. We will arrive in Reine, nestled between the Norwegian fjords, one of the most photographed and characteristic villages. We will then continue to the village of Å, in the Lofoten Islands. We will take a tour of the beauties of this fishing village, where we will find the typical wooden buildings on which the stockfish are hung to dry in the air. Along the way during the day we will pause to admire Rambergstranda beach, characterized by fine, white sand...almost Caribbean! The island of Flakstadøya will amaze us with its rocky reliefs that plunge into the fjord. Return to our accommodation for the evening, free dinner and overnight.
** If the weather permits, we can go on a medium-difficulty trek to admire the islands from above
LOFOTEN NORTH (Svolvær, Bøstad & Henningsvaer)
Today we have a day full of incredible landscapes! We will move further north, discovering all the most scenic points of the islands. We will travel by car along the E10, one of the most amazing feats of engineering ever built. Inserted among the list of the most beautiful panoramic roads in the world, we will cross it while remaining breathless on the multiple connecting bridges. We will stop in Svolvær, the main town of Lofoten, where we will see the famous Fiskerkona, "the fisherman's wife", a bronze lighthouse in which a woman is represented. Just before the bronze sculpture, we will also be able to visit WWII bunkers on the island of Kuba. An obligatory stop will be the "Lofotr Vikingmuseum in Bøstad", an interactive museum that will lead us to discover how they lived and what they ate in the ancient land of the Vikings. After tasting the delicious and very old Njord soup, we will get back on the road to return to Henningsvaer, known as the "little Venice of Lofoten", the largest and most active fishing center in the region, with the most special football stadium in the world. Return to our accommodation for the evening, free dinner and overnight.
** If the weather permits, we can go on a medium-difficulty trek to admire the islands from above
SEARCHING FOR WHALES in ANDENES
We set off further and further north, to reach the town of Andenes, famous for whale watching. We will stop along the way to take some photos. If time permits, we will leave in the afternoon by boat for an excursion in search of whales. Whales can be seen throughout the year thanks to the favorable climatic conditions.. so let's cross our fingers and keep our eyes peeled. Return to our accommodation in Andenes for the evening, free dinner and overnight.
WELCOME TO TROMSO
Today we will then embark on the ferry that will take us to Gryllefjord, from where we will continue on to Tromso to spend the night. Tromsø, defined as "the gateway to the Arctic", is in fact located in the extreme north of Norway, more precisely 400 kilometers above the Arctic Circle. We will visit the city together and stop at the Arctic Cathedral, Ishavskatedralen, whose shape resembles the typical Sami tent (or the tip of an iceberg). Free dinner and overnight in Tromsø.
STOP ON THE SENJA ISLAND AND BACK TO NARVIK
The time has come to head back south, back to Narvik. Today will be a long journey and if time permits we will stop on the island of Senja, where nature develops untouched between spectacular fjords, steep mountains and the crystal clear waters of the North Sea.
