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.
