The Kviknes Hotel

still owned and run by descendants of the founding family the Kviknes overlooks the Sognefjord and from the tiny village of Balestrand and was originally popularised in the 19th c by European aristocracy, Scottish fishermen and painters who came for the magnificent light reflected on the fjord. Our rooms are in the historic Swiss style part of the building each with their own balcony and individually styled fabrics, furnishings and period furniture. The hotel’s restaurant overlooks the fjord and our guests are seated by the window; you can have afternoon tea or coffee after dinner in the period part of the building facing down across manicured gardens to the fjord’s edge.

Scandic Neptun Hotel

The hotel is within spitting distance of Bergen’s inner harbour, the fish market and Bryggen a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Neptun has one of the largest collections of Modern Art in Bergen, giving its guests a great cultural experience during their stay. The cosy rooms, which each have a unique name, have private bathroom with bathtub/WC, hairdryer, TV, WI-FI, desk and armchair.

1st Day UK – Oslo

Fly to Oslo’s Gardermoen and transfer by high speed train to the city centre. Overnight for two nights at the Thon Opera Hotel.

2nd Day – Oslo

After breakfast spend the day sightseeing and discover the Viking Capital; look the haunting image of Edvard Munch’s Scream in the eye at the National Gallery; take in the Viking Ship Museum, Nansen’s Fram or the open air Folk Museums on Bygdøy; hang out down by Aker Brygge or walk on the roof of the Opera House. At night you’re spoilt for choice with an eclectic bar & restaurant scene running the gamut from retro cocktail Bar Boca to Bent Stiansen’s Michelin starred Statholdergaarden.

3rd Day Oslo – Flåm - Balestrand

Leave early on the Bergensbanen climbing high into the mountains to Myrdal in Aurland where you join the eponymous mountain railway down to Flam village at the head of the Aurlandsfjord. The railway descends 20 metres past rivers cutting through deep ravines and snow-capped mountains with mountain farms clinging to their sides and melt water waterfalls plunging from their peaks. Continue by shallow draft ferry along the Naeroyfjord and across the Sognefjord to Balestrand. Overnight for two nights at the Kviknes Hotel.

4th Day – Balestrand

Choose between either watching the day go by or sailing along the Fjaerlandsfjord to the Glacier Museum and Bøyum and Suphelle glaciers. From the ship you have amazing views of the steep mountains, lush landscape and the green fjord. The village at Fjærland at the head of the glacier is where it meets the glaciers and from where you can get up close to Jostedalen glacier.

5th Day – Balestrand - Bergen

In the late afternoon after an early breakfast catch the high speed express boat out along the fjord to the open sea and south through the skerries littering the coastline into Bergen. Overnight for two nights at the Scandic Neptun Hotel.

6th Day Bergen

After breakfast enjoy a guided sightseeing tour of this Hanseatic town sitting in the embrace of seven mountains. Take in the gabled façade of Bryggen behind whose touristy boutiques are the old Hanseatic Merchants’ quarter with a clutch of buildings that have survived numerous fires and which are justifiably a UNESCO heritage site. Across the harbour from your hotel is the fish market whose stock is mercifully insulated from the depredations of the EU’s fishing policy. In the afternoon a trip on the Fløybanen Funicular to Mount Fløyen with its spectacular views and marked hiking trails is a must.

7th Day – Departure

After breakfast time for a last look around (the fish market is a great place to grab lunch) before a late afternoon transfer to Flesland airport for your return flight to the UK.
