Norway in a Nutshell

Although most visitors do the classic Norway in a Nutshell tour from either Oslo or Bergen, you also can do a mini version (adult/child 775/400kr). This circular route from Flåm – boat to Gudvangen, bus to Voss, train to Myrdal, then train again down the spectacular Flåmsbana railway back to Flåm – is truly the kernel within the nutshell and takes in all the most dramatic elements. The Gudvangen boat leaves Flåm at 9am and the Flåmsbana train brings you home at 4.55pm.
