Nutshell trip

Norway in Nutshell is The most popular round trip in Norway. Official site is Some information has been taken from it.

Norway in a nutshell took us through some of the most beautiful scenery in Norway's fjords. We experienced the scenic Bergen Railway, the breath-taking Flam Railway, the Aurlandsfjord.

The details of Bergen and Flam is in the main blog of Norway. The fjords journey is given here.

Splendid norwegian fjords - now on UNESCOs World Heritage List!Down at the idyllic Flam there is time to eat and to wander around little before continuing your journey by boat. The journey goes out from Aurlandsfjord and into the Naeroyfjord, the narrowest fjord in Europe. The Naeroyfjord is now included on UNESCOs famous World Heritage List. Surrounded by mighty mountains of up to 1,800 metres high, this branch of the Sognefjord is amazingly beautiful. On the journey you have views of the small traditional farms. If you are lucky you will catch sight of the goats which graze along the edge of the fjord or of the seals lying on rocks before the boat moors at Gudvangen.
