Bermuda 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. Kristiansund, Norway Kristiansund is a city characterised by ageold traditions. Uncover the intriguing history of Klipfish at the unique museum; explore the fishermen’s wharfs and manor houses of the Old Town; or traverse the renowned Atlantic Road, one of Norway’s most photographed highway. Hellesylt, Storfjord, Norway Hellesylt is nestled amongst stunning mountainsides, with trails and valleys diverting off to satisfy any thirst for discovery. UNESCO-listed, it’s home to the striking Hellesylt Waterfall, and has the enchanting Tystigen Glacier and Hornindalsvatnet – Europe’s deepest lake – within reach. Cruising Geirangerfjord & by the Seven Sisters Waterfall Ranked joint top as the best-preserved natural UNESCO site in the world by National Geographic and known as the ‘Jewel of the Fjords’, Geirangerfjord is home to some of Europe’s most breathtaking scenery. Look out for the abandoned farms and tiny towns clinging to towering cliffs, and tumbling waterfalls such as the Suitor, the Bridal Veil and the Seven Sisters, which splits into seven streams. Geiranger, Geirangerfjord, Norway The pretty town of Geiranger is delightfully positioned at the end of the UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord, and sheltered by mighty mountains – ideal conditions for kayaking. Take to the labyrinthine Eagle’s Road, which gives a more impressive glimpse of the stunning surroundings with every hairpin bend; sample sweet treats at the Geiranger Chocolate Shop & Factory; or enjoy spine-tingling scenery from the Flydalsjuvet viewpoint. 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. Geiranger The mixture of cities, towns and beautiful fjords on the cruise was perfect — we enjoyed every location. Cruising Nordfjord Deeply tranquil, the Nordfjord is utterly enchanting and is flanked by stunning scenery in every direction. 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. independent customer reviews For adult travellers only This cruise is for guests aged 18 and above only.
