Great way to view the fjords , the views are amazing , the boat trip was comfortable and enjoyable with plenty of refreshments on the boat although I have paid to return by boat when I got to flam I decided to return by the famous flam railway which is a must The views on the train are breathtaking if somewhat eerie in places In my opinion I would recommend doing this trip one way to flam and catching the train back for a full on experience

The pickup is punctual and the driver give us some inside about Norway. It’s great pleasure to meet up with nice tour guide Paul and Po (hopefully I spell the name correctly). It’s great trip throughout the whole journey for this private trip especially when you’re traveling with family and dragging with luggages. Overall great experience.

It was a great trip. All the tickets were taken care of and going to the different modes of transportation was easy. I was even able to upgrade my overnight train seat to Oslo to a sleeper car and get some good night sleep. I did this at the train station when I boarded.

Great experience to get to know the Norwegian fjords and the landscapes of the mountains in a tour in all means of locomotion.

Agnis was amazing. He was very accommodating and even took me to see two stave churches.
