Summer Tour to Norway - Accommodations
In Bergen, we'll be staying for 2 nights at the Clarion Admiral Hotel. Jutting out over the water of Vagen Bay, this polished hotel is housed in 1904-built warehouse buildings, across the fjord from medieval wharf area of Bryggen. Guests can enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi, laundry services, room service, a beautiful terrace with views of the harbor and pier, and an excellent restaurant featuring creative Scandanavian dishes by renowed chef Marcus Samuelsson. The breakfast buffet is served in a sophisticated restaurant with views of the vivid Bryggen houses, occasional live music and an international menu. Scandinavian design rooms features flat-screen TV, Duxiana beds, mini bars, desks, and some have view over the bay. The modern bathrooms feature rain showers, and reflect the understated elegance and Norwegian sophistication.
While cruising along the West Coast of Norway, we will be staying for 6 nights on Hurtigruten's MS Trollfjord. Built in 2002, the Trollfjord sails along Norway’s coast and visits 34 ports of call. On board, there are 284 staterooms for the maximum of 568 passengers and 7 decks, staffed by 70 Norwegian crew members. The ship's interior design is bright and open, making extensive use of Norwegian wood and stone in addition to a selection of Norwegian contemporary art and wall-to-wall windows which bathe the ship in natural light and provide glittering views of the Norwegian coastline. Some of the ship's amenities include a sun deck, large panorama and observation lounges, 2 restaurants, 4 bars, 5 lounges, a spa, a fitness room, a gift shop and a library. Each cabin is stylishly designed and features private bathrooms with shower, tea and coffee making facilities, either two twin beds or a double bed and a large window for the stunning views of the Norwegian Coastline. All cabins will be facing outside. As part of the travel experience, the ship offers onboard lectures, activities, and demonstrations related to the areas we'll be visiting.
In Oslo, we’ll be staying for 2 nights at the The Clarion Collection Hotel Bastion. Located in the Kvadraturen area, the hotel is just a few minutes walk from Oslo's central station, Karl Johans gate, Oslo Opera House, and the Aker Brygge district. Modeled after British boutique hotels, the Bastion consists of two joined houses that each have their own unique style, one modern and the other classic, featuring free Wi-Fi, a lounge/bar, dining room, free afternoon sweets and coffee throughout the day, sauna, fitness center, currency exchange and laundry service. 99 brightly-colored rooms furnished with English decor are equipped with adjustable Jensen-beds, satellite TV, mini-bar, phone, ironing facilities, and modern bathrooms with a spa bathtub and shower, hairdryer, and luxury toiletries.
In the highly unlikely event that our original accommodations must be changed, the alternative accommodations will be a hotel of equal or higher standard. No change will made to the cost of the tour.
