Globus Scenic Norway(ZQ)

10 days from Oslo to Oslo 
You’ve been looking for Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, and Vixen in all the wrong places. Pack your binoculars for Norway’s natural wonders, including its scenic Hardangervidda mountain plateau, home to Northern Europe’s largest stock of reindeer. Of course, this gorgeous expanse of land and its antlered residents aren’t the only gifts Norway bestows upon its guests—extraordinary fjords, serene lakes, gleaming glaciers, and thundering waterfalls are all part of the bow-topped package, and this breathtaking tour of Norway presents the most spectacular ways to see them. Cross the orchard-lined Hardangerfjord by ferry, witness the UNESCO-protected Nærøyfjord aboard a relaxing cruise, and revel in the spectacular Nordfjord views aboard the Loen Skylift, Norway’s newest aerial tramway. Beginning and ending in Oslo, this encompassing tour of Norway balances the country’s charming, timeless villages with the surprising architecture and energy of its capital city.
