JANDIS provides services of professional guides in all major cities in Norway. We organize sightseeing tours and visit the main attractions of the towns and the areas around, on simple city walks, one-day excursions and longer tours to the most scenic places in Norway.
One-day tours (from Bergen)
"Norway in a nutshell"
On this wonderful tourist route you will discover the beauty of the mountains and ravines, freshness of waterfalls and fjords. "Norway in a nutshell" combines travels on mountain roads, a tour on the famous Flåmsbana railroad and a cruise on the Nærøyfjord (one of two Norwegian fjords listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site). You can choose between the regular (by train, bus and ferry), the individual (by car, train and motor yacht) variants or a combination of both.
Hardangerfjord and Hardangervidda
The duration of this tour is about 10 hours. From Bergen, you will travel to the Hardangerfjord by road number 7, which in itself is a tourist attraction. Along the way you will observe beautiful views: mountains, lakes and waterfalls. You will cross the Hardangerfjord on a ferry, drive through the village of Eidfjord and visit the local Nature Centre. The visit includes viewing of a film on 5 screens (Supervideograf) about mountains, fjords and waterfalls. After visiting the Nature Center there is a lunch at the tourist restaurant. The robust, but spacious interior of the restaurant with wooden furniture and a large fireplace create a warm atmosphere. The cuisine is typical Norwegian dishes, soups, desserts and drinks. After the lunch the tour continues to the Hardangervidda mountain plateau and Vøringsfossen – one of the most famous waterfalls in Norway. After visiting the waterfall, you will head back to Bergen.
Tours to glaciers
We offer comfortable guided tours by car to glaciers Folgefonna (east of Bergen, about 9 hours long) and Nigardsbreen (north of Bergen, about 12 hours long). Glacier Folgefonna has a ski center operating during the summer. Along the way you will travel through the mountain areas and cross vast and beautiful fjords – the Sognefjord or the Hardangerfjord, depending on the selected route – and make short breaks at the waterfalls. Breathtaking views of the rugged mountain scenery will make an unforgettable impression. At your request a glacier hike can also be arranged. On the way back you can stop in one of the cozy towns and dine in a cafe or a restaurant.
We are also prepared to organize any other travel. The duration and content of the tour depends on your personal preferences.
We offer individual and exclusive tours lasting several days. Itineraries are developed according to your wishes.
One of our most popular tours is the one we call “In the Footsteps of the Trolls”. This remarkable tour is usually tailored for a small group of up to 7 people or a large family. It lasts for about a week, during which you travel with an experienced driver and a professional guide through the most beautiful scenery that Norway can offer and visit the most famous attractions. You will visit towns and cities like Flåm, Balestrand, Loen, Geiranger and Ålesund.
Accommodation is arranged by JANDIS in the best hotels along the route. Usually this tour starts in Bergen with city sightseeing after which you travel north to the region of Sognefjord where you take a cruise on the Nærøyfjord and experience the technological wonder of Flåmsbana railroad. Further north, you will come to Nordfjord where you have the possibility to climb to the glacier Briksdal. The next stop is Geiranger with its Geirangerfjord – the second Norwegian fjord listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On the breathtaking serpentines over the mountains and through the deep canyons you will make your way to Ålesund, where the tour usually ends. You can also continue on your journey to the east, observe the east of Norway with its long valleys with lush forests and conclude the tour in Oslo.
