Cruising Nærøyfjord to Dyrdal 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. 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. Cruising Lysefjord (Pulpit Rock & Kjerag Boulder) As you make the unforgettable journey along the Lysefjord, only accessible to smaller ships like those in the Fred. Olsen fleet, you’ll be running out of superlatives to describe the incredible scenery that presents itself before you. Look out for the unmistakable Pulpit Rock, a flat-topped cliff with a 604-metre plummet into the fjord below – that’s twice as high as the Shard in London – and the fascinating Kjerag Boulder. Intriguingly wedged in a mountain crevice, this rock has become a popular spot for brave (or foolhardy) tourists to have their photo taken. 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. 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 Trek through the Briksdalen Valley and marvel at the magnificent Briksdal Glacier. 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.
