Great well organized tour. Our Help very helpful. We visited very beautiful places. There was a mishap on returning as the train hit cows that had entered a tunnel. For this reason we returned later than expected .... but it was not predictable and it is certainly not the fault of the tour operator. The fjord is beautiful!

Excellent one day tour, fully self guided. No need for meeting points, waiting for group. You receive all tickets by mail, all fares are in sync, you only have to follow the scedule. You will see a lot in only one day.

A magical hike. The guide is extraordinary, professional, smiling. Have seen the passion for the job. The landscapes of this hike are just extraordinary.

Magic experience and excellent guides! Would recommend this trip to everyone

A great adventure! Experienced guides :) I recommend it with all my heart!
