After checking in to your hotel in Bergen, you will be met at Dreggekaien, opposite your hotel and taken by boat to Cornelius Seafood Restaurant, located on a small island just outside the city of Bergen.
Enjoy the 25-minute boat trip before you tuck into the restaurant’s famous “Meteorological Menu”, seasonally inspired with exquisite fresh seafood and the catch of the day. Enjoy a shellfish starter, a main course of fish and a seasonal dessert. After your meal, you will be taken back to your hotel. Make sure you get a good night’s sleep, so you’re ready for your Norwegian adventure tomorrow.
Travel through Spectacular Scenery
Get ready for a journey through magnificent Norwegian scenery! We begin the day on an epic train ride from Bergen to Flåm. But this is no ordinary train ride; the Flåm Mountain Railway is a masterpiece of engineering and an absolute highlight of any visit to this region. Hop aboard this charming train and enjoy neverending vistas of beautiful Norwegian landscapes. From Flåm, you’ll take a fjord cruise to Gudvangen and a bus to Voss, where you’ll be treated to more incredible scenery along the way.
On arrival at Voss Station, you’ll take a short walk to your hotel. Park Hotel Vossevangen is in the center of Voss, with outstanding views of the surrounding nature. Restaurant Elysee offers international cuisine based on locally sourced food, and has Northern Europe’s best and largest wine menu. Enjoy your stay and the delicious food!
Rafting your way through Nature
After breakfast on your last day, you are really in for a great experience - white water rafting in Voss – whether it’s your first time or you’ve rafted before. Depending on the water level, you will be rafting in either ‘Strandaelva’ or ‘Raundalselva’. We can guarantee it will be a thrilling ride! Back at base camp, you’ll shower and have a hot meal before you are taken back to the railway station and continue your Norway in a Nutshell route back to Bergen for your flight home, or your northbound voyage with Hurtigruten.
Overnight stay in Bergen and Voss with breakfast; 3-course Island Seafood Dinner & Boat Trip; Norway in a Nutshell trip (bus, fjord cruise, train to Bergen return); dinner at the hotel in Voss. You’ll be provided with a wetsuit, warm meal, transport, helmet and life jacket on the rafting excursion.
