Travel Planners of Scandinavia
Autumn Fjords Fairytale...

October 2006


Travel Planners of Scandinavia Ltd had the pleasure of organizing an unforgettable familiarization trip on behalf of the National MICE Marketing organization Norway Convention Bureau (NCB), SAS Airlines and the Bergen Tourist Board in Bergen 15-17 September 2006.

More than 100 invited clients from all over Europe were flown into Oslo for a Welcome Reception & Kick off on the roof top of Oslo  - on the Holmenkollen Hill before they fanned out to different destinations throughout Norway.

Approx 20 guests arrived in Bergen on the 15th September for a 2 days program that included amongst other things:

  • Tasting session at the famous Fish market,
  • Dinner on the mountaintop with panoramic views across the Bergen – The Gateway to the Fjords. 
  • VIP fjord excursion with a private cruise including an outdoor lunch at a desolate old farm located deep into the Naerøyfjord with 1700meter high mountains as the backdrop – featured on the UNESCO List.
  • Fjord Safari in 40 knots with Zodiacs,
  • Panoramic train ride with the steepest railway in Europe – the Flam Rail line
  • Helicopter flights across glaciers, mountains and fjords
  • Dinner at the breathtaking Solstrand Hotel & Spa

The guest had a memorable time and the Thank-You notes have been overwhelming:

..”after some beautiful days in Norway I am again in \"reality of work\" but before I sink in it I would like to say thank you to you all for the unforgettable experiences and the warm hospitality you have met us with.
I feel honored that I could share the last past days with you”

..”I just wanted to say a big thank you for the part you played in making my famtrip to Norway memorable.  I had an absolutely wonderful time finding out what Norway, and in particular Bergen, had to offer as an incentive/conference destination. It was obvious that a great deal of time and effort had gone into planning this famtrip and from the conversations/feedback I had with those who visited the other cities, everyone was impressed and had an enjoyable time.”
