Escapes by GLOBUS

Off-season shouldn't mean second-class travel. With milder temperatures and smaller crowds, our Escapes tours mean Globus quality whilst taking advantage of off-peak deals.

See the splendour of the fjords with fewer crowds on this off-season escorted tour of Norway. You’ll arrive in Oslo to begin a 6-day adventure into some of the world’s most beautiful and mysterious landscapes. Start with a guided sightseeing tour of Oslo that features the National Theatre—home of Ibsen’s plays, the unique Storting building, which houses the Parliament, as well as the Royal Palace. Stroll through the famed Frogner Park with the remarkable Norwegian sculptures by Gustav Vigeland. Visit the venue of the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony at City Hall. From Oslo, you’ll drive northwest through Hallingdal—a large valley, rich in the traditions of iron production, cattle trade, folk art, music, and dance. You’ll pass through the world’s longest road tunnel to Aurland on your way to the beautiful village of Flåm, situated at the head of Aurlandsfjord.

Your stay in Flåm includes a boat ride on the spectacular Naeroyfjord—a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Continue on to Bergen, the “City of Seven Mountains,” where you’ll take a drive to see Bergenhus Fortress, Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf, Bergen’s harbour, and the famous fish market. Take a step back in time through the cobblestone streets lined by colourful wooden houses that are quintessentially Norwegian. Celebrate the stunning natural beauty of Norway, its art and cultural history with a farewell dinner.
