"Andrea did a wonderful job designing an itinerary to suit three generations of diverse interests, and was flexible and responsive to last minute changes and requests. He showed us many hidden treasures of this beautiful region that would have missed we're it not for him."

A possible, beautiful itinerary for you
Arrival in Oslo. The moment you arrive, you perceive that you have entered a city that is trying to reinvent itself. As you tour the city, you encounter ultra-modern buildings such as the Opera House. You learn of the past eras of Norwegian culture. Despite the new façade, there is something that remains from a different past, a certain desire to go out, to merge with nature, to go a’viking!
Roads that Beg to be Driven
You fly to Bergen, a city very different in character to Oslo. From here, you begin your journey through the fjords. Your chauffeur is amicable and professional. At first you were a bit hesitant to hire him ― it’s just driving after all! ― but your first taste of the Norwegian country roads leaves you with a sense of awe. These roads wind up the cliffs and the mountains, they ascend to vertiginous heights and drop down to gorgeous valleys. The Norwegian landscape is breathtaking. No wonder the folklore has populated these fjords with trolls and fantastical creatures. You are glad to have a professional to show you the way. Read more
Incredible Experiences in Nature
You drive to Nigardsbreen glacier, where expert guides give you insights into the formation of the fjords and the glaciers, that add to your enjoyment of the sights. You are feeling adventurous. The rugged nature hides many things behind every corner. You make up your mind: your are about to rappel down an ice crag. As you go down, you realise that you are watching ice that is thousands of years old. Despite the fact being awe-inspiring. Your gut-feeling is that you have been on the threshold of the kingdom of some marvelous ice creatures.
Do As the Norwegians
Norwegian nature invites inspiration, it invites movement. Like the waterfalls that plunge into the vale from the precipice, so you dive down from the Trollstigen, the road of the trolls. With the mischievous tune that Grieg prepared for the occasion, your chauffeur masterfully drives across the fjords and takes you to the shore, to the magnificent town of Ålesund, which seems to crop out of the sea. Unlike Oslo, Ålesund is much more homogenous and boasts a peculiar love for Art Nouveau. In its own way, it also communes with the natural landscape around it, a practice you have found in the past few days is typically Norwegian.
