Across the Roof of Norway

One of the special features of this holiday is the Hardangervidda, Europe's largest mountain plateau, where you may be lucky enough to see one of Norway's largest reindeer herds.

Overview

The capital of Norway is a city rich in culture. As a Scandinavian city it will come as no surprise that design and architecture are key features.

The rail journey between Oslo and Bergen is recognised as one of the most beautiful in the world. One of the special features is the Hardangervidda, Europe's largest mountain plateau, where you may be lucky enough to see one of Norway's largest reindeer herds.

Travel alongside rivers, lakes and through mountain valleys between Oslo and Bergen which were first linked by rail in the early 1900's. Oslo and Bergen are contrasting cities, popular during the summer but worth a visit at any time of year.

The picturesque city of Bergen is the southernmost calling point of the Hurtigruten Coastal Steamer and a picturesque city with a long history. The famous colourful wharf is on the UNESCO World Heritage list, there are spectacular view points around the city and a vast array of boat trips to deep fjords and steep mountains.

You also have the opportunity to visit the fjord village of Flåm and travel along the world famous Flåm railway - one of the steepest in the world.

The highlights of this holiday
The capital of Norway (Oslo) and the culture and history of this great city. The spectacular rail journey between Oslo and Bergen Across the Roof of Norway. Bergen is a hive of activity during the summer months and a relaxing picturesque city the rest of the year.

Accommodation

Clarion Collection Hotel Bastion - Oslo

Clarion Collection Hotel Bastion is a hotel with its own character, unique design and personal atmosphere. Inspired by British boutique hotels, it's like a home-from-home on your travels. Located just 450m from the main central station, it's the perfect launch pad for your stay in Oslo.

The water front is less than 10mins walk away. The history of Oslo dates back to 1000AD and can be found in Gamlebyen (Old Town). As a Scandinavian city it will come as no surprise that architecture and design feature heavily.

Clarion Hotel Admiral - Bergen

Clarion Hotel Admiral is located on the quayside in Bergen. Half of the rooms offer a harbour view and views of the historic quay just across the water. You will also find a cosy waterside terrace. The hotel is conveniently located just a couple of minutes’ walk from shops, bars and restaurants and the airport bus stop is handily located close to the tourist office on the quayside.

For a guaranteed harbour view you need to upgrade to a superior room.

Simply Sweden Recommendations
There is lots to do and we recommend a visit to the tourist office. There are several fjord excursions including the Hardanger- and Sognefjords. The famous Flåm railway is easily accessible and the train to / from Oslo offers spectacular scenery. A guided walk is a good idea to obtain local knowledge. Admire the views from the funicular (in the city) or take the cable car to the top of the 'seven mountains'.

Flåmsbrygga - Flåm

Located on the quayside in the picturesque fjord village of Flåm, Flåmsbrygga Hotel offers warm and welcoming accommodation in the heart of Fjord Norway. The hotel rooms are decorated with wooden floors, the warm glow of pine walls, and views of the surrounding scenery through large windows and glass balcony doors.

Flåm is situated at the end of the Aurlandsfjord, an extension of the famous Sognefjord. Flåmsbrygga translates as ‘Flåm Brewerey’ and is home to world class beer, winning 3 medals at the world beer brewing championship in 2012.
