Stroll through the famed Frogner Park with the remarkable Norwegian sculptures by Gustav Vigeland. Visit the venue of the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony at City Hall. From Oslo, you'll drive northwest through Hallingdal-a large valley, rich in the traditions of iron production, cattle trade, folk art, music, and dance. You'll pass through the world's longest road tunnel to Aurland on your way to the beautiful village of Flam, situated at the head of Aurlandsfjord. Your stay in Flam includes a boat ride on the spectacular Naeroyfjord-a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Continue on to Bergen, the 'City of Seven Mountains,' where you'll take a drive to see Bergenhus Fortress, Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf, Bergen's harbor, and the famous fish market. Take a step back in time through the cobblestone streets lined by colorful wooden houses that are quintessentially Norwegian. Celebrate the stunning natural beauty of Norway, its art and cultural history with a farewell dinner.
