Norway’s best kept secret revealed in 50 Degrees North’s new signature tour for 2019

November 23, 2018 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Nordic Travel Specialist, 50 Degrees North, has introduced an innovative new 8-day tour for 2019: ‘The Western Fjords of Norway’. Although largely unknown to international visitors, the Western fjords are a rare gem: The landscape is pristine and exceptionally beautiful even by Norwegian standards!

However, the landscape is not the only factor that makes ‘The Western Fjords of Norway’ tour exceptional. It’s the ease to access such a unique and remote region without having to face peak summer traffic. This journey takes travelers off the beaten path as it showcases sites that aren’t known by many travelers. 50 Degrees North eases the experience by offering private transportation to the various sites in the comfort of a spacious and yet intimate minivan (1 to 12 people) which offers safety, flexibility and convenience, more so for solo travelers. 

“The Western Fjords of Norway’ is designed for people who wish to see a more authentic Norway while still visiting some of the most breathtaking locations that Norway has to offer”, said Tietse Stelma, 50 Degrees North’s CEO and co-founder. “The most famous routes in Norway get very crowded, and we recognise the importance of introducing travelers alternatives routes and lesser known experiences”, added Stelma. 

The self-guided tour starts from Bergen and finishes in Ålesund. In between, travelers get to join the locals on a spectacular coastal ferry ride from Bergen to Måløy, followed by a 3-day minivan journey through the fjords with the picturesque village of Loen as the main base from where to explore nearby glaciers, waterfalls, as well as local history, food, and culture. The last leg of the journey follows the Hjørundfjord, a stunning fjord surrounded by lush forests and small, scenic villages. For those in search of a more authentic Nordic holiday, this is an itinerary not to be missed!  

The trip runs weekly from May to September with fixed departures from Bergen every Friday. It can also be combined with its sister tour, Beautiful Norway, thus making it the ultimate 14-day tour across the fjords (5995 AUD / 4395 USD per person).
