Be captivated by classic Norwegian scenery in the spring as Black Watch sails breathtaking, size-restricted waterways to a trio of wonderful fjordland destinations. From on board your ship and during your time ashore you’ll experience some of the highest-rated and most breathtaking sights in the region, creating memories which will last a lifetime.

After embarking in Liverpool this eight night cruise begins with a sail around the very top of the UK – passing the fascinating basalt columns of Fingal’s Cave along the way – and across the North Sea to the first stop on your foray into the fjords, Olden. Situated amongst rolling valleys, tall mountains and lush-green meadows, this charming little village is a real gem and a delight to explore. It’s also your gateway to stunning natural wonders such as the Briksdal Glacier – an arm of Europe’s largest inland glacier, Jostedalsbreen – and the beautiful Lovatnet Lake. Your first day in the fjordland will conclude with an evening of scenic cruising along the glass-like waters of Nordfjord – one of longest and most picturesque fjords – and by the soaring Hornelen sea cliff.

Arriving in Flåm the following morning offers you the opportunity to spend the day enjoying some of the very best fjordland experiences. Perhaps you’ll opt to marvel at the awe-inspiring scenery surrounding Flåm from the Stegastein Lookout, presenting unspoilt views from 650 metres above Aurlandsfjord; or catch a ride on the iconic Flåmsbana Railway and see the cascading Kjosfossen Waterfall up-close. Another evening of unforgettable scenic cruising follows as Black Watch diverts into the spectacular, UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjord – just 250 metres wide at its narrowest point – before sailing on to Bergen. In your final Norwegian call you can take the day to wander around the colourful Bryggen Wharf and the bustling fish market; climb Mount Fløyen via the funicular railway and enjoy the views from the top; and stop by Troldhaugen, an interesting museum which was once the home of Edvard Grieg. As you head for home you’ll also take in the rugged scenic landscapes of Scotland’s Shetland Islands with a stop at Lerwick en route back to Liverpool.  

Please note, this is an adult only sailing (18+).
