roads in some instances, baggage and personal transport between
locations is by rail and you have to carry your own bags to and
from the trains. The

Norway for the duration of our tour season, is the 'Land of the
Midnight Sun,' with very long summer days.
You will probably not even
notice the night as such, just a certain dimness which will have nothing
to do with any drinks that you may have had!
What people really come to the land of Trolls to see is a series of
ruggedly beautiful panoramas full of glaciated mountains, fjords and small
attractive settlements. In Norway you can undertake some great wilderness
hiking and travel on some of the world's most scenic ferry and train
You will also find unspoiled fishing villages with their gothic styled
mediaeval stave churches. There are rolling farmlands, enchanted forests
and the dramatic Western Fjords, of which Sognefjord - visited on our tour
- is the longest and deepest. With only 4.5 million people in a country
that is 385,155 sq km; places will never feel particularly crowded
although such scenic areas are popular with tourists. The country, still a
Constitutional monarchy, fiercely guards its traditions.
