Detailed Itinerary 

Day 1: Oslo – Arrive in Oslo with a Culture Tour Finding Hints of Frozen

Arriving in Oslo will immerse your family in the enchanting ambiance of Arendelle, where Elsa and Anna live in a castle that resembles the Akershus Fortress. The fortress towers above the sea along the edges of snowy coastline, and the facades of colorful homes will reflect in the light beneath the delightful image of snow-covered rooftops. Visiting Norway in winter and the beginning of spring opens the whimsical world of Frozen with sheets of snow and ice that transform the charming city and surrounding landscape into a winter wonderland. Here, every day holds cool, crisp air and the aromas of cinnamon, cardamom, and pine to make you feel as though you could run into Elsa around every corner.

Your private transfer will meet your family at the airport and escort to your luxurious accommodation in the heart of the city. Once you have arrived and checked in, you can settle into the comforts and pace of Oslo before meeting your guide for a private introduction to the history, culture, and marvels of Oslo. When visiting the Stave church inside the Norsk Folkemuseum, your family will find hints of Elsa and Anna’s castle, and you may notice the similarities in the architecture, such as the lofty portals, decorated staves, and sloping roofs.

You will also visit the Viking Ship Museum, where the fascinating history and culture of Norway brims to life and will introduce your family to the heritage that has informed the unique images of the Frozen movies. Once inside the museum, you can view the captivating Oseberg Viking Ship, which is an actual ship that dates back to the 9th century.

You also have the option of adding a private glassmaking workshop, during which, your instructor and experienced glassblowing artisan will teach your family how to craft an intricate and unique souvenir to take home with you. The heat in the room will drift from the kiln with an orange glow as your instructor demonstrates how to shape the molten glass into a snowflake. Each curve, twist, and turn will be different for every member of your family, which will allow everyone to feel as though they have Elsa’s magic for creating snow.

What’s Included: airport transfer, accommodation

Day 2: Flam – Travel by Train to Lovely Flam for Stories of Witches and Trolls

At breakfast, the aromas of lingonberries, strawberries, and blueberries will fill the dining room and will be accompanied by the scent of freshly brewed coffee. Your private transfer will meet your family at the hotel and escort you to the train station for a scenic journey to Flam. The tracks will hug the landscape as you wind alongside the plush blankets of snow, and you are likely to have spectacular views of the jagged snowcapped peaks before reaching Flam, which is located at the innermost corner of the Aurlandsfjord.

Upon reaching the town, you will find streets and brightly colored homes that are surrounded by the towering mountain slopes in addition to shades of blue light that linger through town and shimmer on the surface of the water. Surrounding the town, snow caps the mountains, and you can hear the sounds of the fjord waters lapping on the shore. The aromas of cured ham, roasted lamb, and sweet goat cheese will fill the restaurants, which may fade beneath the lasting scent of pine.

In the evening, you will stroll through town with a guide on a cultural tour that will have you listening to the local folklore that has shaped the heritage of the region. In this town, stories of trolls and other mystical creatures are not in short supply, and you will sit on the beach in the warmth of a bonfire as your family finds an easy connection between the tales of witches that hide in the wilderness and Elsa as she wanders through enchanted forests.

Day 3: Flam – Discover the Fjord by Boat and Delight in Small-Village Life

The dining room of your hotel will fill with the delightful aromas of freshly baked bread and delicious fruits in the morning before you meet your guide for a fantastic boat tour of the fjord. You will travel into the heart of the fjord on a RIB boat, which will provide you with an up-close look at the small villages and stunning waterfalls that break through the frozen landscape in the springtime. The journey will resemble the intrigue that you felt when watching Anna and Olaf paddle down a canyon during the trailer for Frozen 2.

Furthermore, you will hear the waterfalls as they cascade down the steep slopes with enough force to break and melt the surrounding ice. You can search for eagles in the sky or otters that habitually cruise through the fjord in search of fish. You will then stop at a village that overlooks the glassy inlet, where you will meet with a local grocer to learn more about life in the remote corner of Norway. This experience should make you feel as if you have stepped into Oaken’s general store. The cozy and casual ambiance will welcome you into the market with a sample of the local goat cheese that is known as “Undredalsosten.” The surrounding village dates back to the 12th century and stems from the foundations of the Undredal Stave Church.

Day 4: Bergen – Delight in a Scenic Train to Bergen, Which was Inspiration for Arendelle

The charm of Flam and beauty of the surrounding nature of Flam is visible in the late morning light and may remind your family of the sudden winter sun from Frozen after Elsa embraces her powers. After a delicious breakfast, you will return to the train station from your hotel and board a scenic train bound for Bergen. The spectacular ride will lead you along the highest railway in Northern Europe, offering a different view of the fjords below and leading to the Myrdal mountain station. While the summer offers luscious greenery and cobalt waters, the winter resembles a blanket of winter snow that rises and falls alongside the fjord.

You will arrive in Bergen and find an immersive, welcoming, and storybook ambiance that is surrounded by seven fjords. The town retains its medieval fishing tradition in addition to its majestic, wooden buildings. The scent of chocolate often drifts through the doors of elegant coffee shops, and you can take a moment to bask in the sweet scent like Anna and Elsa as they enjoy their mutual love of chocolate as seen during the coronation party. You have the option of a privately guided tour, or you can lead your family on your own through the gorgeous streets, along the edges of the water, and up to the Floibanen funicular, which leads you from the base of the mountain to the top of Mt. Floyen at 1,050 feet. The thrilling ride will provide you with a steep ascent to the top, which will then lead to a bird’s-eye view of the sparkling water and shimmering city beneath the twilight of the Norwegian winter. You will have a spectacular view of the inspiring colors and captivating charm that will allow you to connect Bergen to the town that Olaf wanders through in his short film, Olaf’s Quest.

After breakfast, your private transfer will escort you out of Tromso’s center and into the wilderness of the Arctic Circle, where you will meet with a local Sami community. The traditional dress that they wear may look familiar because it will be the same clothing that Kristoff wears in Frozen. Once in the village, your guides will welcome you to the landscape.

As they graze, the local reindeer may remind you of Sven. Wander and you will have the opportunity to board a sled that is pulled by these reindeer during a safari that ventures through the marvelous snow-packed wilderness.

They are very friendly and have soft noses, and you will feel as though you are offering Sven a treat for his friendship after the ride through a snowy forest and beneath the flickering glow of the Northern Lights.

You will return to Tromso for your flight to Oslo, where your private transfer will escort you to your well-appointed accommodation. Once you are checked in and settled, you can enjoy the remaining day at your family’s leisure.
