I opted for the second option for Oslo to Bergen for my trip this June. From what I read the last segment is not as scenic, but I am also not a fan if twisty bus rides! Not sure about the steep rail but telling myself it's iconic. It might just depend on your own needs/interests? Interested to read your responses, thank you!

Thank you, Karen. I got the following response from 'Norway in a nutshell' fjordtours.com;

"I will recommend you the Norway in a nutshell tour that includes a fjord cruise on the Nærøyfjord, which is more scenic than Songnefjord."

The original one on the Nærøyfjord is better. The fjord is more narrow with steep granite mountains plunging down into the fjord. The Sognefjord is much wider so the feeling and/or scenery doesn't seem as dramatic.
