Join Boudicca for an incredible nine-night exploration of Norway’s most
captivating destinations and jaw-dropping natural landscapes. Springtime
is excellent for taking in the sights, such as the Briksdal Glacier, Bergen’s
UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf and the twisting Nærøyfjord. A great way
to capture the scenery is by rail; you can relax as the Flåm Railway and
Bergen’s funicular railway bring everything closer.
Enjoy a relaxing day at sea as you head north to
the historic city of Bergen. Surrounded by seven
mountains, Norway’s second city offers plenty to see
and do. Take in the rich flavours at the famous fish
market; explore the UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf
area; and be sure to board the funicular railway to the
top of Mount Fløyen – with the astonishing views on
offer, you won’t regret it.
Flåm retains more of a quaint fjordland village feel.
The scenery here is spectacular, particularly if you
venture high up into the mountains on the Flåm
Railway, or perhaps experience a rewarding journey
down to the fjord by bicycle. Elsewhere, the towering
Stegastein viewing platform is sure to delight. For an
extra special experience, Boudicca will then divert
from the normal sea route between ports to explore
the dramatic twists and turns of the Nærøyfjord, a
stunning wonder rated joint-top in National
Geographic’s list of natural heritage sites worldwide.
You’ll be afforded time to discover a collection of
Art-Nouveau architecture – towers and turrets,
ornaments and balconies, steeples and spires –
with a full day in Ålesund, or perhaps head to the
top of Mount Aksla and view the city in all its glory.
Ålesund is also your starting point for a catamaran
cruise along the wild and dramatic Hjørundfjord, one
of Norway’s hidden treasures.
Calling into tranquil Olden provides an opportunity
to view the mighty Kjenndalen Glacier and the
magnificent Briksdal Glacier – an arm of Europe’s
largest inland glacier, Jostedalsbreen. It’ll then be
time to become even more immersed in Norway’s
natural beauty. You’ll experience the sloping green
mountainsides of the enchanting Nordfjord; the
cascading Fureberg Waterfall; and Hardangerfjord,
‘Queen of the Fjords’; during your scenic
From charming Eidfjord you can kayak on the still
waters of the Hardangerfjord, take a tour to the
invigorating Hardangervidda Nature Centre, sample
authentic local treats at the Hardanger Juice and
Cider Factory, or visit the spectacular Vøringsfoss
Waterfall. To round off your journey, why not spend
a day exploring Stavanger’s fascinating Old Town?
