Please call for details. For adult travellers only This cruise is for guests aged 18 and above only. Starting off in Bergen, the venue for Fred.’s historic ‘4Bs’ event in July 2015, you’ll find beauty presents itself immediately in the colourful timbered houses at Bryggen Wharf and sensational views from the top of Mount Fløyen. Then, after taking in the charming villages of Skjolden and Olden, along with four distinctively charming fjords, you’re sure to be both captivated and inspired by some of the best Norway has to offer. Top of the ‘must-see’ list are the Jotunheimen Mountains and the Briksdal and Nigardsbreen glaciers, while the twisting Nærøyfjord – only accessible to smaller ships – 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 stunning scenes don’t stop there; sail past a picture book of sights, including the unusual Torghatten and the mighty Svartisen (Black Glacier) as you head into the realms of Arctic Norway, pausing to stop at Tromsø – the ‘Gateway to the Arctic’. Honningsvåg is next on the list, your start-off point for the North Cape (Nordkapp) and the sensation of the Midnight Sun. You’ll feel almost on the top of the world as you savour the dramatic landscapes and panoramic views of the Arctic Ocean. Admire the North Cape and The Horn from the comfort of your ship, before moving on to discover glorious Spitsbergen. Lying north of mainland Norway, the largest island of the Svalbard archipelago, Spitsbergen, feels beautifully isolated from the rest of civilisation. Shrouded by snowcapped mountains, both Pyramiden and Longyearbyen exhibit a ‘ghost town’ feel, with abandoned Soviet-era buildings and mines indicators of the once rich industrial heritage of the area. You’ll find these a delight to explore.
