Experience stunning landscapes and in-depth cultural touring on this private tour of some of the most memorable destinations in the fjord region and central Norway.

Begin in Alesund, a beautiful port town built on islands along the coast. During private touring, explore the historic center—a showcase of Art Nouveau architecture—and visit small museums such as the Jugendstilsenteret to learn more about the history and culture of the region. If desired, also learn about Viking history, visit popular cafes and small boutiques, and venture up Aksla viewpoint for panoramas of the city and surrounding archipelago.

Next, travel by boat to Christian Gaard, a family-owned farm and restaurant on a remote section of scenic Hjorundfjord, for an off-the-beaten-path lunch. Continue to Hotel Union Oye, a historic hotel in a peaceful setting with fjord and mountain views. During your stay, enjoy privately guided activities such as hiking in the mountains, biking through the stunning Norang Valley or kayaking in the fjord.

Continue through spectacular Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the surrounding region. Cruise by ferry through the beautiful fjord, admiring waterfalls streaming hundreds of feet down high rock walls, and looking for farm buildings perched on precipitous cliffs. Also drive along the famous Eagle Road, a winding route with overhead views of Geirangerfjord, and through other classic Norwegian scenery of fjords and hills. Another highlight is driving on Trollstigen, a dramatic road that winds down steep slopes past waterfalls and towering peaks.

Travel by private vehicle and ferries through scenic landscapes to the stunning Atlantic Road, an engineering tour-de-force that connects a chain of small islands with curving bridges. Also take a short cruise to picture-perfect Haholmen, a fishing village on a tiny island, where you might like to enjoy lunch.

Next, drive inland into the mountainous region around Oppdal. Enjoy an exciting private hiking safari into Dovrefjell National Park to look for wild musk ox or visit Oppdalsmuseet open-air museum to see historic log buildings that capture the traditional style of the area.

Conclude in Trondheim, Norway's third-largest city. During private city touring, visit Nidaros Cathedral, an important pilgrimage site founded in 1070; walk through the historic Bakklandet neighborhood, where colorful wooden buildings are filled with cafes, restaurants and boutiques selling traditional Norwegian items; and visit museums such as the National Museum of Decorative Arts and Design, Trondheim Art Museum, Archbishop's Palace Museum and Rockheim music museum. Your private guide will also recommend restaurants serving local specialties.

This private Norway tour can be further customized with additional time or destinations in Norway or in neighboring countries such as Sweden and Denmark. Contact one of our Scandinavia specialists to start planning.
