Please call for details. 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 the impression of heading towards a dead end, which opens up as you turn each corner. 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. Kirkwall, Orkney Islands Situated on the beautiful Orkney Islands, and home to a range of wildlife, including migrating Arctic Terns, Kirkwall is surrounded by gloriously rugged countryside just begging to be explored. Alternatively, venture to the dominating St. Magnus Cathedral – the northernmost on the British Isles; discover the 5,000 year-old Neolithic village of Skara Brae; or tour to the Highland Park Distillery. From only £899 per person Orkney Isles concludes this superb holiday. Olden, Nordfjord, Norway Both charming and incredibly beautiful, the village of Olden is a springboard for discovery. It’s the gateway to the astonishing Jostedalen Glacier and its famous branch, Briksdal, as well as the stunning Lovatnet Lake and Olden Church, built in 1759. All this means you’ll never be far from a fantastic photo opportunity. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Travel through the wild, winding roads of the Kjenndalen Valley and admire the magnificent Kjenndalen Glacier, followed by a relaxing cruise on the tranquil Lovatnet Lake. Cruising Nordfjord & by Hornelen Deeply tranquil, the Nordfjord is utterly enchanting and is flanked by stunning scenery in every direction. Cruising along this magnificent waterway, you’ll pass Hornelen, Europe’s highest sea cliff. 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 Combine a journey on the spectacular Flåm Railway with a scenic cycle ride back down to the area’s picturesque valley, passing many stunning views en route.
