A weeklong summer sojourn featuring five days of memorable Norwegian exploration, this Boudicca cruise packs in scenic cruising of awe-inspiring fjords dominated by powerful landscapes, and visits to diverse destinations rich with highlights, to create a short, yet highly rewarding holiday.

The steep slopes of Lysefjord, a spectacular waterway only accessible to smaller ships, provide your first sight of the fjordland’s extraordinary landscapes. [ReadMoreMob]While a bridge at the entrance of Lysefjord restricts larger vessels, Boudicca can take you deep into the heart of the fjord to present you with towering mountains, rugged cliffs and unique rock formations. Deep within Sognefjord, Norway’s longest fjord, tranquil Flåm awaits on the banks of the Aurlandsfjord. Stopping at this beautifully unspoilt village brings you closer to some of the fjordland’s greatest attractions. Opt to the head to the 650-metre-high Stegastein Lookout, for views of Sognefjord to savour forever; or perhaps embark on a ride on the world-famous Flåmsbana Railway, to see mountains and waterfalls up-close, before stepping back on board Boudicca for an unforgettable diversion into the narrow, size-restricted Nærøyfjord, one of National Geographic’s top two Natural World Heritage Sites.

Into Hardangerfjord next, you’ll journey through tall, untamed scenes of rolling valleys and imposing peaks before charming Rosendal appears. From here the outstanding landscapes of Hardangerfjord are within easy reach; and you’ll have the chance to join a flightseeing adventure presenting views of the fjord, as well as the striking Folgefonna Glacier. Once back on board Boudicca, be sure to take your place on the open decks to capture the cascading Furebergfossen Waterfall as you deviate down Maurangerfjord. Finally, after three memorable days of fjordland exploration, Stavanger provides your last slice of authentic Norwegian culture. With various attractions, including the historic Gamla Stavanger district and interesting Canning Museum, you’ll find there’s much to discover in the former ‘European Capital of Culture.’
