The Fjord Explorer from Oslo


While staying in Scandinavia, you shouldn't miss a chance to visit the Fjords in Norway, surrounded by majestic, snow-covered mountain peaks, wild waterfalls and lush, green vegetation. In Western Norway, there are fantastic opportunities for active leisure. The fjord area is like a great playground for those who love activities and for those who just love beautiful nature. Since it can be rather difficult and expensive to organize independent tours to Fjord area, don't miss this great opportunity to travel together with a group of other adventurous travelers!
