Springtime Norwegian Fjords Itinerary

Day 1 - Liverpool, UK

Embark ship for late afternoon departure.

Day 2-3 - At Sea

Some of the best moments of cruising are the days spent at sea where you can relax and enjoy the wonderful programme of events and activities we have planned for you.

Day 4 - Cruising Nordfjord and Innvikfjord, Norway

The sixth longest Norwegian fjord, and one of the most picturesque, Nordfjord stretches from mainland Norway's westernmost point to the magnificent Jostedalsbreen, Europe's largest inland glacier. The ocean entrance to the fjord is relatively flat, with low-lying lands and smooth beaches, but as you venture deeper, the landscapes become taller and isolated villages appear amongst a panorama of lush valleys, mighty cliffs and soaring alpine mountains.

Day 4 - Olden

Located at the eastern end of the Nordfjord where it divides into three arms beneath the glaciers of the Jostedalsbreen, the charming village of Olden sits among green meadows, towering cliff faces, and sparkling glacial waters. In the centre of the village is the Old Church; and just a short journey away is the Briksdal Glacier, formed thousands of years ago, while still breath-taking, has retreated some 859m in the last century, a stark reminder of the effects of climate change.

Day 5 - Cruising by Strandafjellet Mountain

Located east of Alesund, Strandafjellet Mountain is widely regarded as one of Scandinavia’s greatest skiing locations and has been voted in the top ten places to visit by the Norwegians themselves. Soaring high into the clouds above the fjord, Strandafjellet is a perfect example of Norway’s natural beauty, overlooking the 110km long Storfjord.

Day 5 - Cruising Storfjorden

Storfjorden, which translates as 'Great Fjord', certainly lives up to its name. Norway's fifth largest fjord, this magnificent waterway slices a 68-mile-long path through the Sunnmøre region's rugged landscape, before splitting-off into the Norddalsfjorden and Geirangerfjord. Ever-changing scenes come into view as your smaller sized cruise ship sails the still waters of Storfjorden, passing through a naturally moulded canyon of steep cliffs and lush-green valleys. Close by are charming settlements and farmlands perched on the tall hillsides.

Day 5 - Cruising Geirangerfjord

Located in the Sunnmøre region of Møre og Romsdal county, Norway, Geirangerfjord is one of nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Norway. Surrounded by majestic mountain peaks and several cascading waterfalls, the fjord is home to luscious plant life and steep cliffs with the highest mountain along the fjord standing at approximately 1,700 metres. The Seven Sisters, the Suitor and the Bridal Veil are three of Norway's famous waterfalls, which can be seen from Geirangerjord.

Day 5 - Cruising past Seven Sisters Waterfall

The Seven Sisters are among the most photographed waterfalls of Norway's UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord. No less than seven waterfalls descend into the fjord, with an average fall of around 250 metres (820 feet) and the water level is dependent on snow thaw and precipitation. Legend has it that the Seven Sisters were all unmarried, and the waterfall on the other side of the fjord has been called 'The Suitor' after several unsuccessful attempts to court the sisters.

Day 5 - Hellesylt

The village of Hellesylt is located at the head of the Sunnylvsfjord, close to the UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord, surrounded by towering snow-capped mountains and lush green fields. Flowing through the village is the Hellesyltfossen waterfall, where water cascades down over the granite rocks into the fjord below. Best known for its outstanding scenery, Hellesylt is close to Hornindal Lake, said to be home to a legendary sea serpent.

Day 6 - Ålesund

Situated in the most spectacular of settings, Ålesund is built on three islands with a magnificent mountainous backdrop. The city was rebuilt in 1904 after a devastating fire, into the classic Art Nouveau style it is renowned for today, and which can be seen in the displays at the Jugendstilsenteret, The National Art Nouveau Centre. The panoramic views of the city, archipelago and Sunnmore Alps from the top of Mount Aksla are well worth the 418 steps to the summit.

Day 7 - Åndalsnes

Åndalsnes is often referred to as the 'Alp town by the fjord'. Located at the mouth of the Rauma River, and surrounded by snow-capped mountains, the town is in one of the most scenic areas of Norway, and a natural starting point for forest walks and hikes to magnificent viewpoints. The Rauma Railway is considered to be one of the best railway routes in Europe, since it was constructed 100 years ago.

Day 7 - Cruising Romsdalfjorden & Isfjorden

One of the longest, and cleanest fjords in Norway, Romsdalsfjorden is framed by the majestic peaks and waterfalls of the Romsdalsalpene Mountains, which tower over lush green valleys and charming waterside villages. The fjord village of Isfjorden is situated at the innermost part of the fjord, and has an unspoilt charm - surrounded by some of Norway’s most famous natural landmarks, such as Romsdalshorn and Trollveggen.

Day 8 - At Sea

Some of the best moments of cruising are the days spent at sea where you can relax and enjoy the wonderful programme of events and activities we have planned for you.
