We left Bergen by bus to Flam at the head of the Aurlandsfjord. There we boarded the Flam Railway for a spectacular ride across the steep and narrow Flam Valley. The one-hour ride took us through countless tunnels and switchbacks. We were dazzled by the glacier carved ravines, waterfalls and ski areas. In Myrdal we boarded another train to Oslo where we disembarked in Norway’s capital and largest city. If you can only have one day in Norway, make this the day.
Oslo is all you would expect a Scandinavian capital city to be with wide pedestrian streets, parks, museums, an ancient fortress, a waterfront with many restaurants and shops filled with beautiful Scandinavian designs. Our last full day in Norway we visited the City Hall where the Nobel Peace Prize is given each December, the Viking Ship Museum, Vegeland Sculpture Park and the Holmenkollen Ski Jump.
That evening our group gathered for our farewell dinner. We toasted a wonderful trip, new friendships and future travels!
