What people are saying about Vestland County

Great way to explore Norway in a day without any of the hassle. We had a wonderful time and found the tour super comprehensive. What I will call out is however that we did not receive the details of the tour (including when we would depart Oslo the next morning, which was before 7:00 am) until the night before which made it difficult to plan. We had booked the tour weeks before and a bit more input woudlve been largely helpful.

It was a great trip. All the tickets were taken care of and going to the different modes of transportation was easy. I was even able to upgrade my overnight train seat to Oslo to a sleeper car and get some good night sleep. I did this at the train station when I boarded.

To comment only that due to the works on the train, the departure was a chaos and the pick-up did not leave us at the point of origin, apart from the fact that none of the 4 buses decided to ride more than 20 hikers.

It was great - easy to navigate, enough time to switch between different means of transport (and I travelled with two luggages but it was still enough time to drag it from one train to another haha :) ).

Simple instructions that allowed us to make this excursion in complete autonomy The tickets are taken and sent in advance A very beautiful route to do and see...
