Spectacular highlights of Norway on our Summertime Fjordland Cruise
Known for its awe-inspiring beauty, Norway’s Summertime Fjordland Cruise is simply spectacular. Visit the delightful cities of Bergen and Stavanger and cruise deep blue fjords, such as magnificent Geirangerfjord, surrounded by majestic mountains. Olden is your gateway to the spectacular Briksdal Glacier and Eidfjord offers a chance to visit the impressive Vøringsfossen waterfall. Visits to Shetland and Liverpool complete this cruise.
Lerwick – Shetland Islands
The core of this 9th century Norse town is a maze of narrow streets set behind 18th century sandstone buildings overlooking the busy harbour. Hay’s Dock, once the centre of Shetland’s fishing and boat building industries, is home to the marvellous Shetland Museum and Archives.
Stavanger is a vibrant, modern city. One of the most popular excursions from Norway’s fourth largest city is a visit to the Iron Age Farm at Ullanhaug giving a fascinating insight into life in the area some 1,500 years ago.
Olden – Norway
From the village of Olden the beautiful Oldendalen Valley runs between towering mountains to the edge of the mighty Jostedalsbreen Glacier. Briksdal Glacier is one of the more accessible arms of the Jostedalsbreen. The creeping pitted tentacle of ice features in optional excursions from Olden together with glorious waterfalls, glacier fed rivers and wonderful mountain lakes.
The tiny village of Flåm lies at the head of Aurlandsfjord, the innermost arm of the mighty Sognefjord. Enjoy a ride on one of the world’s steepest and most spectacular railways, a masterpiece of engineering, the Flåm Railway.
Eidfjord is a small town at the gateway to Hardangervidda, which is the largest high mountain plateau in Europe and Norway’s largest national park. A short walk from the village centre there are graves by the roadside dating back to the Iron Age and Viking eras. The ‘old’ church in Eidfjord was built in 1309. Nearby the stunning Vøringfossen waterfall is one of Norway’s most popular natural attractions and features in optional excursions along with the amazing Sysen Dam.
