Cruising Hardangerfjord Sail along the breathtaking Hardangerfjord. Known as ‘Queen of the Fjords’, it was voted by Norwegians as a top 10 fjord experience. There’s inspirational scenery wherever you look, from towering mountains to shimmering waterfalls, and magical glaciers to idyllic orchards. Cruising by Fureberg Waterfall, Maurangerfjord Experience unforgettable views as you cruise along the Maurangerfjord, past the imposing Fureberg Waterfall – be sure to keep your camera to hand. 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. Cruising Sognefjord At an impressive 127 nautical miles long, the Sognefjord is the longest fjord in Norway and the third longest in the world. With a steep and rocky appearance, in places it can feel almost eerie. From only £1,099 per person 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 Single friendly: We will always offer an Ocean View Twin Room at a reduced price for sole occupancy.
