Overview

Highlights

  • Walk and boat among Norway's unbelievably pristine fjords
  • Idyllic treks past farms, waterfalls and fertile pastures dotted with wildflowers
  • Get to know historic Balestrand, an inviting artist village
  • Enjoy a guided excursion on sparkling Nigardsbreen Glacier

Short Description

Fjords—now there's originality. And Norway is home to an enviable collection. Be humbled as your ferry cruises across magnificent Sognefjord, Norway's deepest fjord, an ideal gateway to vigorous shoreline hikes through serene valleys, quiet villages and dense pine forests. Welcome to a gloriously unique perspective.

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.

This was our third Backroads trip. It was a 10 day bike trip on the south island of New Zealand. Amazing! Very well organized! Great guides! All the details are carefully taken care of! Even when the unexpected happened (an earthquake!), our guides had a bus replace the train trip that was cancelled (due to damage to the railroad tracks) and it was done quickly. I would recommend Backroads to all my active friends :)

I've taken two Backroads camping trips with my teenage son. It's our summer bonding time and has proved to be a better experience than I could have imagined. Highly recommended. Everything is done for you except riding the bikes! We've been to the San Juan Islands and Yellowstone/Tetons. This year, hopefully Alaska!

I recently had the most amazing experience on the Backroads Singles-Solos Wine Country to San Francisco Biking trip. I'm not a biker but everyone was supportive of each other regardless of experience level. The routes took us through some of the most beautiful roads in the Bay Area. My favorite part was the food as there were freshly-prepared meals three times a day. A+.
