And don’t miss the magnificent Flåm Railway, a 20km-long spiralling sensation with an abundance of photo opportunities along the way. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Have your camera at the ready as you journey up high into the mountains on the worldfamous Flåm Railway, on our popular ‘Norway in a Nutshell’ tour. From only £1,199 per person its Klipfish production. 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. 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.
