Norway 14th -21st April 2012
We have put together a truly lovely trip to Hardanger including three nights stay at the 5star+Ullensvang Hotel (my favourite hotel in the world). Many of you joined us for the last trip and know that this hotel was a revelation! We have three nights at this lovely site with views across the Hardanger fjord and the chance to sample the sumptuous Hardanger buffet three nights running….The trip is a bit more complicated this time as we can no longer use the ferry to Bergen but we have all sorts of plans for you……
