Day 1 Bergen - Steinsdalsfossen - Ulvik

After meeting in Bergen, we’ll make our way to picturesque Ulvik, stopping off at the beautiful Steinsdalsfossen waterfall along the way. When we reach Ulvik, we’ll check into our accommodation – then it’s off to Syse Farm. After learning about the farm’s history and taking a look around the orchard and smokehouse (weather permitting), we’ll be treated to a few samples of the delicious produce. Following a welcome dinner at the farm, we’ll return to our hotel for the evening. (D)

Day 2 Ulvik - Eidfjord - Ulvik

This morning we’ll pass another scenic cascade: the Vøringfossen waterfall. After soaking up Eidfjord’s dramatic scenery, we’ll return to Ulvik, with a photo stop at the impressive Hardanger Bridge. This afternoon, we’ll pay a visit to a local farm on the famous ‘Cider Route’. (B)

Day 3 Ulvik - Voss - Myrdal - Flam - Undredal - Fjaerland

After a delicious breakfast, we’ll make our way to Voss. From here, we’ll take the scenic Flåm Railway to Myrdal, then onwards to Flåm. This afternoon, we’ll enjoy a cheese tasting and delicious lunch in Undredal before moving on to pretty Fjærland – home to The Norwegian Book Town, a cluster of fascinating second-hand bookshops. (B,L,D)

Day 4 Fjaerland - Loen

The award-winning Norwegian Glacier Museum is next, offering a fascinating insight into the region – from the Ice Age to today’s climate change challenges. Afterwards, it’s time to see some of the ice formations for ourselves, with stops at the Supphellebreen, Bøyabreen and Kjenndal glaciers. We’ll warm up in Loen tonight. (B,D)

Day 5 Loen - Geiranger - Hellesylt - Loen

Weather permitting, today we’ll begin at Dalsnibba Summit, Europe’s highest fjord. After lunch we’ll cruise to the middle of the fjord to see the captivating Seven Sisters, Bridal Veil and Suitor waterfalls. By the end of the day, we’ll have sensational photos to share and compare over dinner. (B,D)

Day 6 Loen - Hoyanger

On the agenda today: a visit to Briksdal Glacier (with an included troll car ride), followed by a light lunch at a local farm. Then, it’s on to Sunnfjord Museum, an open-air museum depicting the daily life of the area’s farmer and tenant families in the 19th century. After an insightful day, we’ll press on to Høyanger. (B,L)

Day 7 Hoyanger - Vik - Bergen

We’ll continue our journey with a stop at Vik this morning, where we’ll see the richly decorated Hopperstad Stave Church and the distinctive Moahaugane burial mounds. After a stop at the Tvindefossen waterfall, we’ll make tracks to Bergen, where we’ll enjoy some traditional Norwegian cuisine and toast the final night of our adventure at a local restaurant. (B,D)

Day 8 – Bergen

After breakfast, there’s still time for an in-depth walking tour of Bergen with a local guide. Not only that, but we’ll also satisfy our inner gastronomes one last time with an included food tour around the city. Our trip will come to a close in the afternoon. (B)

This tour can be combined with The Wonders of Wales and/or Highlights of Britain.

Why Back-Roads Touring

Smaller groups of up to 18

With a maximum group size of 18 people on Europe tours (22 on French barge tours) and 14 people on Asia tours, Back Roads pride themselves on ensuring that each guest has a personalised holiday experience.

Mini-Coaches

On the vast majority of tours we travel by Mercedes or Mercedes Vito mini-coaches, equipped with comfortable seats, air-conditioning and large windows for enjoying the view. With the flexibility to go anywhere a car can, we take the smaller roads through beautiful scenery and get right to the heart of tiny villages and buzzing cities.
Along the way, your Tour Leader can offer intriguing insights about the views we see over the onboard PA system. And, with long drives kept to a minimum, you’ll have plenty of time to stretch your legs and explore sites for yourself.

Scenic back roads not motorways

Winding country lanes. Coastal beauty spots. Breathtaking mountain passes. With luxury mini-coaches that take us along scenic roads beyond the reach of large vehicles, the journey is as much a part of the adventure as the destination.

Authentic Local Experiences

Truly getting to know a destination means stepping off the typical tourist trail. From hidden-gem attractions to local favourites, we take time to seek out genuine experiences that take you to the heart of each spectacular region.

Culinary Discoveries

One of the most enjoyable ways to experience a different culture is to sample the cuisine. From visits to local producers to food and wine tastings and even cooking lessons, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to discover new flavours.

Hand Picked Boutique Accommodation

Whether it’s a classic country inn or an elegant chateau, each day’s journey ends in a hotel with plenty of character. We opt for accommodation that reflects the personality of the local area, and fits right in with its surroundings.

Leisurely Paced Travel

Forget sunrise starts and long days hopping on and off the bus. We rarely leave before 8.30am and give each stop the attention it deserves – keeping long drives to a minimum. And giving you plenty of time to explore at your own pace.
