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. Five-Night Fjords From only £599 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. 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. 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 Kayak on the crystal-clear waters of the Hardangerfjord and marvel at the magnificent setting, surrounded by dreamlike peace and tranquillity.
