60 thoughts on “Norway in a Nutshell Tour: A Review”

  1. I read this blog post with great interest. Norway is somewhere I’ve always wanted to visit but haven’t because of how expensive it is. Great photos and I enjoyed the video too! I will check out more about Norway in a nutshell tour because your photos and video convinced me even more to maybe save a lot and catch 1.5 hour flight to Norway in the summer 🙂 I think you were lucky that the weather favored you as well! 🙂

    1. Yes, I think I had luck with the weather. There were some summer rains but overall it was good. If you have any question about the tour or Oslo, feel free to ask. I am not an expert but I will try my best 🙂
      Thanks a lot for reading! I am very glad that you like my post 😉

  2. Wow, breathtaking photos! I will definitely check out the tour if I go to Norway. How much did it cost for your tour? By the way, how do you embed the Youtube video on your post?

    1. Thanks for your compliments!
      Just put the Youtube link into your post 🙂 It will automatically be embedded when you post it.
      The whole Norway in a Nutshell cost me around 290€ (quite expensive). But it was during peak season, so I guess I cannot complain. Some said buying individual tickets are cheaper, but definitively not in July, except you bought the tickets a few months in advance .
      Hope it helps 🙂

  3. Your photos are gorgeous! I went to Bergen once for a weekend but I was visiting friends and didn’t do much nature sight-seeing. Guess I’ll have to settle for your amazing photography for now.

  4. Thanks for sharing this information. It is very useful when planning a trip to Norway. I like the look & feel of your blog a lot. What is the name of the WordPress Thema you are using? It’s amazing. Greetings from Argentina.

  5. We loved our Norway in a Nutshell experience. We chose to drive, but did take the Flamsbana and the Fjord cruises. Norway is an absolute must for any world traveler. A beautiful country with beautiful and kind people.

    1. I agree. I was stunned by its natural beauty. Even cities like Oslo or Bergen are beautiful as well. I can’t wait to visit the country again 🙂

  6. Norway looks so spectacular and your photos are superb. The cost has unfortunately kept it pushed down my list but hopefully I’ll get there.

    1. Thank you, Caroline! I agree that costs is a deterrent factor. Not only in Norway, but in other Scandinavian countries as well 🙁

    1. Many thanks! I was pretty lucky on that day 🙂 Just 20 minutes ago, the sky was heavily clouded and there was a high chance that I couldn’t see the sunset.

  7. Thanks for reliving my memories of this trip some years back. I stood in the vestibule because it was difficult to get any seats in the carriage as loads of tourists snavelled all the seats. I had luggage and enjoyed the view through the vestibule doors. I couldn’t believe that most people on the cruise part got out playing cards to occupy themselves ( this was prior to smartphones) when there was so much to see. I stayed overnight at Stalheim ( only possible in summer), which was fantastic scenery. There is even a small museum there. You were lucky with the weather that day! Did you know that there is a ‘slow’ trip video on this train ride now?

    1. Well, the vestibule doors offer the best view 🙂 I had to leave my seat several times for that view. And many of my photos was made there.
      No, I didn’t know there was a video on the train ride. The only thing I noticed was the screen showing temperature 🙂

      1. Hi again Len, It is a camera mounted on front of the train. This one is from Bergen to Oslo. Great views.

      2. Wow! The view from the cockpit is really special. My most favourite part is when the train running through the snowy landscape. Thanks for letting me know 🙂

    1. It’s expensive as hell >.< I remember paying 5-6 euro for a cup of muesli, which is five times more expensive than in Germany. Dining out is a real luxury there. The price in Sweden is slightly cheaper, but still hardly affordable 🙂

      1. Hahah so true! When we arrived to Sweden we thought “How reasonable” when it’s quite expensive too. Even supermarkets were super pricy. Here in the UK food is good and affordable. Going our is a bit more expensive but in Norway, as you say, a luxury 😂

    1. It’s indeed. I would love to see winter in Norway (the aurora is definitely a must-see), but I’m afraid of the coldness 😛

      1. We went end of October but I think tou can see the Northern Lights from.mid September (maybe the weather is mild then?)…or just wrap it up it is well worth it! 😉
