As you gently glide up close to sheer cliffs, mighty waterfalls
and rolling hills on glassy, near-silent waterways, it’s clear
why cruising is the best way to experience this other-worldly
setting. With a Norwegian heritage that dates back generations
and smaller ships that can sail to places out of reach to larger
vessels, Fred. Olsen can show you this remarkable region
like no-one else. Relax comfortably on deck as the ship
intentionally diverts away from direct routes to show you the
more scenic paths, before sailing all the way into charming,
chocolate box towns and cities that are bursting with culture.
There’s a choice of durations on offer. You can experience this magical setting
in just five nights when sailing from conveniently positioned northern UK ports.
Longer sailings offer a wider selection of intriguing destinations to discover,
including the rugged Shetland Islands.
Highlights in Norway are in abundance thanks to our award-winning itinerary
planning. Experienced Norwegian Intercoastal Pilots will steer you through the
astonishing, UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjord and Geirangerfjord – both of which top
National Geographic’s list of Natural Heritage Sites. Jaw-dropping natural wonders
await at every turn: the Briksdal Glacier, the Seven Sisters and Fureberg Waterfalls
and the precipitous sea cliffs of Hornelen. You can ride the engineering delight that
is the famous Flamsbana Railway, or go kayaking on the glassy waters of beautiful
Hardangerfjord. A thousand years of city life and culture fit seamlessly into these
journeys too: the Hanseatic history of Bergen and the cosmopolitan vibrancy of Oslo
and Stavanger are only two of the lures, along with the likes of quaint Lerwick.
Whether you’re exploring the fjords for the first time or, like so many, on a return voyage
to this breathtaking part of the world, you’re assured the ultimate cruising experience
– and all in Fred. Olsen’s homeland.
