What To Expect

Enjoy convenient pickup from your Bergen hotel in the morning. Meet your dedicated tour guide and feel free to share any interests or preferences; your itinerary is flexible and this private tour ensures personalized attention. 

Hit the E16 road in your private vehicle, traveling by the famous Dale of Norway sweater factory in the village of Dale, then through the town of Voss. Make a brief stop at the Tvindefossen waterfall for photos, take a deep breath of mountain air to smell the clean, pristine waters. 

Continue your trip to the Stalheim Hotel to visit its well-known terrace, which opens up to fantastic views over the Nærøydalen Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Back in your vehicle, descend the dramatically steep Stalheimskleiva Road to the valley's floor (available from May till September only), where you will visit the ancient village of Gudvangen.

Depart from Gudvangen on a cruise (if option selected) to Flåm, exploring the area around the Aulandsfjord and Nærøyfjord. Choose between a RIB, a motor yacht, and a passenger ferry for your cruise. 

Upon arrival at Flåm, enjoy lunch in a local restaurant (own expense), then enjoy free time to browse the souvenir shops, the museum of Flåmsbana railway, or the local microbrewery at your leisure. After lunch, get back in the car and head towards the scenic Stegastein viewing point, a 30-meter long platform hanging over Aurlandsfjord at 650 meters above sea level (from May till September only, otherwise upon special request). The narrow road and the viewing point will give you some breathtaking pictures and vivid emotions.

If you selected the cruise and train option, board the Flåmsbana railway from Flåm to the mountain railway station Myrdal, located 2,844 feet (867m) above sea level. During the scenic journey, have your camera ready for views of canyons, mountainsides, and waterfalls. Make a brief stop at the gushing Kjøsfossen waterfall. Change trains at Myrdal to head back to Voss; upon arrival, you can tour a medieval church dating from 1277 and an 11th-century stone cross. 

Lastly, take the return journey by car to your hotel in Bergen to conclude your tour.

Bergen (Pass By)

Following a morning pickup at your hotel in Bergen or the cruise port, take a seat in your private vehicle at 8:30 am and head towards Dale and Voss to begin your 11-hour tour.


Along the way, stop at the Tvindefossen waterfall and capture the scenery on camera.

Flam railway and the natural beauty of the Fjords. Our guide was a wonderful person but all he did was drive us. He's not from the area and thus wasn't able to be a knowledgeable guide. We spent $1700(!) But could have done better by doing it on our own!
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Dear Tim, Thank you for sharing your opinion about our tour. Our team poses that a person's place of birth does not determine their ability to work, and the communication skills of our driver-guides, their helpfulness and their willingness to adapt to the client confirm this. Best regards, Elena Easy Travel Team
This tour is not private
Alena_T, Jun 2022
Nothing about this tour was private except the car ride. We were given little information before the tour about the details and ended up in the car for 5 hours, on a train, and on a packed ferry in the fjords. At this price point, we were expecting at least a private boat ride in the fjords. The driver was kind but overall a frustrating experience. I will be contacting the tour operators for a refund.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Dear Alena, We are very sorry that you haven't read the tour description & what to expect, where it's clearly said that the tour is done via Flam Railway and a passenger ferry boat (motor yacht, or RIB are available on request and additional price). We haven't got any request for the rib boat or motor jacht from you, so we have provided you with the private driver/guide, a private vehicle, Flamsbana Railway train access and Sognefjord cruise access on the silent-motor ferry boat.

We had a full day of travel to the sognefjord boat ride and flåm train. Ivan was our tour guide and was so great. Informative, great driver and always around if we needed him. It was the easiest most enjoying day of travel we have had. Amazing!!!

Amazing sites
Renee_R, Jun 2022
This tour was amazing. Just realize that you do have a driver that will pick you up, but will drop you off at the different venues then pick you up when you reach your different destination's.
Excellent Guide and wonderful trip
Gordon_A, Jun 2022
Voss to Flam railway trip was stunning and the fjord boat trip packed in a wonderful day trip to see the best parts of Norway.

Some great scenery - but not sure it was value for money
Andrew_H, Nov 2019
Nice electric boat ride for 2 hours in the Fjords and two 50 minute train rides in the snowy mountains were lovely - but at £1800 plus for four people it seemed way overpriced - our guide Matt wasn't very talkative - not what you expect from a tour guide - he was pretty much a glorified driver.
Response from Host, Nov 2019
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are very sorry that you had such an unpleasant experience with our tour guide. We try to make each and every one of our tours in a way custom made by adjusting nuances to the needs and wants of our customers, but it seems that we didn't succeed this time. Regarding the price of the tour - it includes tickets to services like boat ride, train, and car expenses (toll roads, gasoline, driver's man hours, etc.) all of these services are rather pricey in Norway. We will most certainly take your opinion into consideration to improve our services in the future. Easy Travel Team Arturs
Frustrating private tour
MaTeresa_A, Oct 2019
Our tour guide failed to adequately explain anything about the place, etc. It was just a ride from Bergen to board the ship, then picked us up at the end of the train ride to take us back to the hotel. No added info . Definitely below expectations
Guide was inexperienced
Gigi_M, Sep 2019
Our guide only acted as transfer companion . He didnt give any information like a guide normally does. Plus He was supposed to take us to the hotel stalheim to see the valley but we only passed it . Not happy with his service at all .
Response from Host, Sep 2019
Good day, we are very sorry for your unpleasant experience - can you please let us know your guides name and your travel date, so we could take closer look into this matter. Easy Travel Team
Great private tour
Inverloch, Jul 2019
Enjoyed our tour and were able to see all the main sights thanks to a hassle free tour with our guide Frode. He had a lot of information to share and was very helpful. Having him to drive us around saved a lot of time. Highly recommended
Private Tour for Two in New and Very Comfortable Mercedes Motor Coach
kay e, Jun 2019
We booked this tour because we wanted a private tour to the Dale of Norway Factory and this seemed to be the best way to get there. And it was a perfect day! Our guide, Ray, showed up exactly on time in an extremely comfortable Mercedes Motor Coach. He was great!! Not only was he an excellent driver and tour guide, but he was willing to take us to the Factory and wait patiently while we spent over an hour shopping. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants a private tour!!
Awesome trip
Supriyakumar S, Jun 2019
The trip was excellent from start to end. The pick up was on time and the everywhere we were driven safely and in timely manner. Matt was good at communicating and passed us good information about the various places we visited. The places were awesome and my family enjoyed it thoroughly!
Great Tour!
tulogboy, May 2019
Our driver/guide, vehicles including the ferry and the sites were all amazing! It was a good idea the we did the tour the other way around, we started with the train to Flam then the cruise to Gudvangen. It seemed like we avoided the usual crowd. :)
Excellent, Personalized Tour
Kevin_R, Sep 2018
We were looking at Norway in a Nutshell and realized that it was basically a bunch of public transit tickets lined together. That in itself is fine but we also has visions of moving in a big pack of people which we were not that keen about. This tour work out to be about $250 more for three people and we all agreed that it was worth every penny. Raivis was our guide and was always on top of things. He also has a good sense of humor and was able to banter with three 50 somethings despite being half our age. Pick up was on time in a comfortable Mercedes van. Raivis kept us on time which was important the first half of the day as you have a boat and a train to catch. The stops are as outlined in the tour info. We were escorted up to the entrance of the boat and Raivis met us on arrival at Voss, spent some time with us at lunch, made sure we got to the train in time to get the best seats and told us where to sit for the best views. This is the easiest way to do this trip. They show you the highlights, keep you on schedule and book all of the tickets in advance. All you have to do is pay and show up. I got the impression that Raivis would have taken us around for another hour or so upon arrival in Voss. We chose to go back to Bergen as we had a full day and were back at the hotel by 6:15 pm. Keep in mind that the minimum number of people they will do this tour for is three and the per person price gets a bit cheaper the more people on it. Recommended.
Amazing day touring the fjords
Mona M, Jul 2018
Our family had an amazing day w/our guide Igor. He had an incredible depth of knowledge of the area including history, geopolitics, economy, folklore, etc. No question we had went unanswered. Day was flexible with lots of time in the car but scenery was breathtaking. Fjord cruise was the highlight! Train ride was lovely. Would highly recommend. Of note- we had our 4 children along (ages 9,12,14,15)

Tanty S, Oct 2017
My tour guide, Bjorn, was beyond excellent. From the moment he picked me up, he even prepare some motion sickness remedy for me. And then right before my train ride, he bought me a local lunch to enjoy during the ride :- Not only that he is a local bergen, he is also well knowledge about all of the local stuff. What I like him about the most is his energy and his personality. I learned a lot about bergen, fjord, culture, history in one day, he really make sure that he fit a lot of sight seeing in one day He happened to be a very talented photographer, he took some of my pictures during this trip, and as a courtesy, he actually email Them to me :-. What an amazing picture. I am so thankful that I found this trip and Got bjorn as my guide. It's definitely worth every penny.

Johnshaw6800, Sep 2017
Fabulous day tour ! We found our personal guide Bjorne, to offer great insights and history to our 1st visit to the fjords of Norway. The only glitch was some communication with Viator with confirming and understanding the day's itinerary.

Meredith M, Aug 2017
We took this tour as an alternative to Norway in a Nutshell. We enjoyed the more private and individualized experience, as well as the added stops along the way Tvindefossen waterfall and UNESCO site at the Stalheim hotel. We were picked up on time and our tour guide was timely and dependable at each and every stop. Everything was organized in advance, which made it all nice and easy for us. Our guide was very nice. A few things to mention: the description makes it seem like lunch in organized at a specific place it is not, you eat on your own in Flåm and it also makes it sound like the cruise around the fjords is included it is not - it is 70 euros additional - although expensive on top of the tour itself, it was the highlight.

Lis, Jul 2017
This was the absolute best tour. you could ever take. Our guide, Raivis, was truly amazing! Ask for him if you book this tour! He felt like a part of the family. He picked us up at the hotel, drove us to Gudvangen, via Hotel Stalheim a must see for views where we took the ferry to Flam and then met us. Taking the ferry, even though it cost extra was a must do, it had the most beautiful views. We had lunch told us to get a beer at the bryggerie and then since we had some time before the train to Myrdahl, we went up a very curvy road into the mountains for the most fantastic view of Naeroyafjord. We took the train to Myrdahl, saw wonderful waterfalls...there is a surprise at the most stunning of them and then took the train to Voss. He met us there and we took in another waterfall TLC--forget the song Don't go chasing waterfalls, which was amazing. We all thought this made the trip to Bergen. Also make sure you take the train either from Oslo to Bergen roundtrip or one-way. You will be totally amazed by the views. Raivis was the best tour guide!
