The Basic Fjord Tour starts at the railway station in Bergen with the scenic railway journey from Bergen to Myrdal station. From Myrdal station, the tour continues on the famous Flam Railway, one of the steepest standard gauge railway lines in the world.
The Flam Railway is very easy to find at Myrdal station. The 20-km-long train ride is a fantastic journey that offers panoramic views of some of the wildest and most magnificent mountain scenery Norway has to offer, including the famous Kjosfossen waterfall. The train ride lasts for roughly an hour. When you arrive down at Flam, you have some time to explore the village.
Flam is a charming small village surrounded by steep mountainsides, cascading waterfalls and narrow valleys. It is lovely just to stroll around, but you can also visit the Flam Railway Museum. It is also a nice place to catch a bite to eat before embarking on the fjord cruise return journey to Bergen. The boat stops at several places en route and the guide tells interesting stories about the local history of the fjords. You will also have a good chance of seeing some marine wildlife and birds in their natural element, for example seals, harbour porpoises and eagles.
The boat heads out the Aurlandfjord and up the Naeroyfjord. The Naeroyfjord is one of the narrowest fjords in Europe. In 2005, the Naeroyfjord was inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List. You arrive back in Bergen early evening. The Sognefjord in a Nutshell Day Tour lasts about nine hours, and it takes you through some of the most beautiful scenery Norway has to offer.
There is also an option to travel the same journey by starting with the Fjord cruise from Bergen to Flam, then return to Bergen via the Flam Railway via Myrdal.
