Your cruise at a glance

Hand-crafted highlights

This summertime sailing deep into Norway's fjord landscape offers the opportunity to witness nature's sublime beauty, from rugged mountainous scenery, crystal clear waters and stunning waterfalls. Scenic sailings of some of Norway's most picturesque fjords, including Geirangerfjord, Storfjord, Nordfjord and Innvikfjord provide opportunities to see the imposing Strandfjellet and Trollveggen mountains, which loom over the fjords' pristine waters, while the cascading waters of the Seven Sisters Waterfall descend gracefully into the fjords below. Embrace Norway's culture of outdoor living and get closer to nature with a Kayak tour of the lakes, a cycle ride along the fjords or a boat tour on the glassy waters.

Fjord Landscapes

We have timed your Norwegian Fjords cruise on Bolette for you to experience the outstanding beauty of our homeland. As you sail through the crystal-clear waters of Geirangerfjord, you'll experience beautiful vistas of lush greenery and steep cliffs, alongside the cascading Seven Sisters waterfalls, while Nordfjord offers the chance to explore the picturesque town of Olden and witness charming fjord-side villages. The towering peaks of Strandfjellet and Trollveggen cast intriguing shadows over the waters below as Bolette glides serenely along. From Åndalsnes, join us on a journey into the rocky mountains of the Romsdalen Valley aboard the Rauma Railway to witness even more of Norway's beautiful scenery. 

RIB tour in the Norwegian Fjords

Experience the concept of Friluftsliv

The Norwegian concept of Friluftsliv translates as 'free air living', based on a deep connection with nature and spending time outside participating in outdoor activities. Join a tour from Alesund to Mount Aksla for views of the Sunnmøre Alps, or go birdwatching at Runde Island to spot puffins, kittiwakes, guillemots and razorbills. From Olden, enjoy an exhilarating RIB boat tour to catch your own crayfish, which will then be cooked on an open fire at a local restaurant for you to enjoy, and in Geiranger, experience a guided kayak tour of the fjord, admiring majestic mountain peaks and the Seven Sisters waterfall. Make sure to try our Norwegian Aquavit cocktail tasting on board and discover its unique flavours, created from caraway and dill.
