Day 5: Norway in a Nutshell - Adventure style!

This morning meet your group at the Voss train station where you will depart for your day's adventure into the fjords. Begin your morning by rail up the Raundal Valley to the remote Myrdal station. Take the Flam Railway, the steepest line in Northern Europe. You then descend to Berekvam Station where the action begins!

At Berekvam you leave the crowd behind and jump on a MOUNTAIN BIKE! Your guide will lead the way, giving you insight into this amazing valley, making sure you don’t miss the best viewpoints and will be on hand in case of break-downs. This fun downhill ride will take you to the picturesque village of Flam, beside the Aurland Fjord.

At Flam you have time for lunch on your own and a short rest before meeting for the next leg of your adventure.  Take a sea-kayak tour in the amazing fjords of Norway.  You will pass beneath towering mountains and witness the nature and landscape of this magical place. You will paddle back to where you started, change gear and then have some time to relax and refresh yourselves ready for the final adventure of you day!

Back at the dock you will be suited up and jump on board a different type of boat! This one comes in the form of a fast RIB boat on a fjord safari, a journey through the World Heritage areas of Aurlandsfjord and Naeroyfjord to the village of Gudvangen.

From Gudvangen you will drive through spectacular Naeroydalen and down the hair-pin bends of the Stalheim road on route to Voss.

Accommodation in Voss

Day 6: White Water Rafting, Voss 

This morning meet at the Voss train station for your transfer out to the Rafting Center. Begin your excursion through the White Water Rapids near Voss. This fun and exciting tour is suitable for beginners and experienced rafters. You will have an unforgettable experience! Depending on the water level, raft the Stranda or Raundal rivers, both of which offer world class white water.

The Stranda river section is about 8kms with 9 spectacular rapids and several beautiful stretches. Since the river has a pool-drop character, the grading is relatively low compared with the size of the rapids we run, giving you great bang for your buck!

The Raundal river is about 7 kms of world class white water running through a beautiful canyon away from the road. 

After your rafting trip head by train back to Bergen. Enjoy your evening relaxing in the city known as the Gateway to the Fjords.
