What people are saying about Vestland County

The pickup is punctual and the driver give us some inside about Norway. It’s great pleasure to meet up with nice tour guide Paul and Po (hopefully I spell the name correctly). It’s great trip throughout the whole journey for this private trip especially when you’re traveling with family and dragging with luggages. Overall great experience.

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.

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...

Great experience to get to know the Norwegian fjords and the landscapes of the mountains in a tour in all means of locomotion.
