This September, my husband and I took his mom and aunt to Norway to visit their homeland, and in the four days we were there, we fell in love with this beautiful country. Even though our trip was short, we managed to cram a lot in, seeing the top highlights over a long weekend. We began our journey in Oslo where we spent two nights (read A Quick Guide To Oslo), and ended our trip in Bergen where we stayed for one evening (read A Quick Guide To Bergen), but my favorite part of the trip was our crazy Norway In A Nutshell tour. We took two trains, a ferry through Sognefjord, a bus ride through the mountains, and another train that ended our trip, arriving in Bergen!
Needless to say, it was a long and exhausting day but one of my favorite experiences in my traveling career! I can’t explain the magnitude of the awe we experienced on our ferry ride through Sognefjord, Norway’s largest fjord and one of the most breathtaking natural wonders I have ever seen. Many other people were on the ferry with us, but the entire boat went silent as we made our way into Sognefjord. Everyone stood captivated by beauty surrounding us on all sides. It is no wonder this is an UNESCO-protected site and attracts visitors from all over to the world. There is much to do and see in Norway, but if you only have a few days, I highly recommend this amazing tour starting in Oslo and ending in Bergen. Here is a video I created to share some of the highlights with you. Enjoy! Nyte!
