Tour Highlights

Authentic Norway

Uncover authentic Norway on this private holiday tailored to you. Begin in Oslo, the Scandi-chic capital, taking advantage of its walkable nature on a guided tour. Swap the bright lights for small-scale charms in the heritage town of Roros, arriving by rail to its traditional wood-built houses. Finally, take the train to Trondheim, where a boat tour along its central river takes you by colourful merchant houses into a glittering fjord.
