Scenic Fjords & Waterfalls of Norway 8th July 2017 • 8 nights • Sails from Southampton • Braemar • CRUISE ID: M1716 Marvel at inspirational scenery as Braemar takes you through the narrow passage of Karmsund, a rewarding experience not possible on larger ships; visit Skjolden, nestled at the very tip of Lustrafjord, surrounded by astonishing views; and sail past the tumbling Fureberg and Feigum waterfalls. There’s even the chance to visit the Vøringfoss Waterfall and Cruising Hardangerfjord Sail along the breathtaking Hardangerfjord. Known as ‘Queen of the Fjords’, it was voted by Norwegians as a top 10 fjord experience.

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 From only £1,099 per person dramatic Hardanger Glacier, from Eidfjord. 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. Cruising Karmsund Take full advantage of Fred.’s smaller ships as you glide through Karmsund, a strait between Karmøy Island and the town of Haugesund that’s just 175 metres wide at its narrowest point. Larger vessels would have to sail a longer distance out into the open sea, a much less rewarding experience. Eidfjord, Hardangerfjord, Norway Sited on moraines left behind by the Ice Age, Eidfjord is reached by sailing along the glassy waters of the picturesque Hardangerfjord. Tour to the Hardanger Juice and Cider Factory or Hardangervidda Nature Centre for an authentic Norwegian cultural experience; embark on a kayaking adventure against a dramatic backdrop of towering cliffs; or discover the breathtaking beauty of the Vøringfoss Waterfall. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Learn about the nature, climate and environment of the Hardangervidda National Park at the Nature Centre, before traversing the mountain plateau to see the Hardanger Glacier and beautiful Vøringfoss Waterfall.
