FJORDS OF NORWAY

Odysseys through the land of Fjords.

Norway’s coast and fjords are a delight from spring to autumn. Receding snows are replaced by apple blossom, giving way to lush green hills and deep blue waters beneath the towering peaks. Since we launched Cruise & Walk, Norway has consistently proven our most popular destination. There is no more beautiful scenery on earth.

Our unique shore walks and excursions include:

Bergen: We walk past the old merchants’ houses and ascend Mount Fløyen by cable car. Here paths stretch into a world of woods, lakes and mountains.

Flåm:  We take the famous railway to the mountainous settlement of Myrdal, then walk down to Berekvam past countless waterfalls with rugged peaks all around.

Olden:  We walk towards the little-visited Briksdal Glacier, a tongue of the Jostedal Glacier, Europe’s largest.

Eidfjord:  From this tiny village at the end of the world-famous Hardangerfjord we walk past a Viking cemetery to the local lake.

Skjolden: Here we are about as far east as you can sail in the fjords... our walk passes through woods and farmland high above Lustrafjord with breathtaking views.

Lysefjord: Cruising east from Stavanger, the fjord contains two of Norway’s most amazing sights – Pulpit Rock rising a sheer 600m above the fjord and the Kjeragbolten, a boulder jammed in between two rocks.

Geiranger: We pass many waterfalls, including the Seven Sisters, to arrive here. Several walks rise from the small town to breathtaking viewpoints over the fjord.

Kristiansund: A town built on four islands. Our walk up the hill of Kvemberget rewards us with views over sea, islands and mountains.

Please note that ports may differ between individual departures, please check the itinerary link against your chosen departure in the Dates, Prices & Holiday Information Sheet tab.


WALKING GRADES


Grade 2 Walks will normally be up to three hours and include little cumulative ascent or descent, generally under 300m. The walks will typically be on flat or gently undulating terrain along easy paths or tracks. Some time will be spent sightseeing in villages, towns or cities. Grade 3 walks are either full or half day walks on moderate terrain combined with active sightseeing.

  • Accommodation
    All Four Cruise Ships

    Braemar
    Stylish, contemporary and with a five deck high atrium and large windows, Braemar has a light and open feel. There are two swimming pools on the Marquee Deck and cascading decks at the stern to give a mix of both open and more intimate outside space. Inside there’s no shortage of public space either, with cafés, bars, lounges.
     
    Boudicca
    Sister ship to Black Watch, Boudicca was named after the warrior queen of the ancient Britons. This classically styled liner lives up to its impressive name providing good accommodation, excellent catering, and the attentive service that’s only really possible on a smaller ship.
     
    Black Watch
    Before the jet set arrived, cruise ships were once the height of style, charm and sophistication. Black Watch with its sleek styling, traditional atmosphere and comfortable cabins harks back to the heyday of the cruise liner. Still sailing on world cruises, Black Watch continues to provide a world–class cruising experience to travellers today.
     
    Balmoral
    Carrying around 1350 passengers, Balmoral is the largest ship in Fred. Olsen’s fleet. Although considerably smaller and more intimate than most cruise ships launched in recent years, the cabins are comfortable and well appointed. There’s plenty of public space both inside and outside, where everyone can relax, and swimming pools on decks 7 and 11.
