Scenic Fjords of Norway 10th April 2017 • 8 nights • Sails from Southampton • Braemar • CRUISE ID: M1708 Delight in magnificent scenery as you sail the highly-rated Nærøyfjord and Hardangerfjord; look out for tourists posing for photos high in the sky as you cruise below the intriguing Kjerag Boulder and Pulpit Rock; admire idyllic Eidfjord, renowned for its peaceful orchards; gaze in awe as you pass beautiful sights aboard the Flåm Railway; and discover historic Bergen, which was home to legendary composer Edvard Grieg. Bergen, Norway The beautiful UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf, with its colourful timbered houses and cobbled walkways, is the historic and cultural centrepiece of Hanseatic Bergen, though the famous fish market, Troldhaugen Museum and fascinating art galleries are worth exploring too. Head to the top of Mount Fløyen via the funicular railway for an unrivalled perspective of the city. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Visit legendary composer Edvard Grieg’s summer home (now a museum) on the outskirts of Bergen, and be enchanted by the performance of some of his works in a small concert hall in the grounds. Flåm, Aurlandsfjord, Norway Flåm is a delightful, unspoilt treasure, with quaint orchards, cottages and farmland surrounding the spellbinding waterfront. The views are nothing short of magical, whether you’re standing at the Stegastein Lookout or admiring the mighty waterfalls, Tvinde and Kjosfossen. And don’t miss the magnificent Flåm Railway, a 20km-long spiralling sensation with an abundance of photo opportunities along the way. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Have your camera at the ready as you journey up high into the mountains on the worldfamous Flåm Railway, on our popular ‘Norway in a Nutshell’ tour. Cruising Nærøyfjord to Gudvangen The Nærøyfjord has been rated joint top in National Geographic’s list of natural heritage sites worldwide: evidence enough that you’re in for something special. At just 250 metres wide at its narrowest point, it’s only accessible to smaller ships like Fred. Olsen’s. The passage through is one of the most dramatic in Europe; each twist and turn gives From only £899 per person Cruising Fedafjord & Listafjord The 10km-long Listafjord flows through Vest- Agder County at the southern tip of Norway, meandering between rugged surroundings and hills, before eventually splitting into two. Fedafjord is the southern of the two branches, an aesthetic delight with beautiful beaches dotted along the way. Cruising Flekkefjord & Stolsfjord Cruise the southern Stolsfjord and the Flekkefjord – of which only ships up to 49 metres tall can navigate the entire length – and lose yourself in peaceful contemplation as the rolling green landscapes, craggy islands and deep blue waters surround you. Cruising Hidrasund & Strandsfjord Sail along Strandsfjord and the Hidrasund, a passage between the island of Hidra and the mainland that is less than 300 metres wide at its narrowest point. This is cruising at its best: fantastic views enjoyed from the comfort of your ship. ©Sverre Hjørnevik/www.fjordnorway.com Bergen Flåm Nærøyfjord Eidfjord Hardangerfjord Lysefjord (Pulpit Rock & Kjerag Boulder) Hidrasund & Strandsfjord Flekkefjord & Stolsfjord Fedafjord & Listafjord To/from Southampton Single friendly: We will always offer an Ocean View Twin Room at a reduced price for sole occupancy.
