The final stop on your luxury Scandinavia holiday is Aurland, which you’ll reach after one of the most scenic journeys imaginable through the Sognefjord, the largest and best known of Norway’s fjords.
Aurland itself is a peaceful area whose main draw is the majesty of the fjords and surrounding countryside, and your time here would be best exploring the area on foot or by bike, kayak or row boat, and guided tours are also available from your hotel, 29/2 Aurland
. A collection of converted wooden barns, lodges and cabins, this traditional farm-turned-hotel has played host to local and visiting fisherman for generations: fly fishing in the Aurlandselva River is a great way to spend an afternoon.
If you’re feeling adventurous, then fjord skiing is perhaps the most spectacular way to take in the scenery, and the hotel offers a programme of guided ski trails interspersed with traditional local meals, local folk tales and visits to nearby sites of interest, such as the legendary fairy stone.
After exploring the fjords, your Scandinavian adventure has come to an end and you will take the train to Bergen for your flight home.
