Your cruise at a glance

Hand-crafted highlights

This journey has been designed by our team to show you the very best of the Norwegian Fjords as Autumn transforms the landscapes into a scenic tapestry of colours and contrasts. Bolette will navigate waterways, including the picturesque Nordfjord, and UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord, pausing to capture the cascading Seven Sisters Waterfall. The towering Strandafjellet mountain stands proudly overlooking Storfjord, and can often have the first dusting of snow on their peaks, contrasting with the autumn hues below. Embrace the Norwegian concept of outdoor living and get closer to the fjords via kayak, or perhaps take a hike to the icy Briksdal Glacier.

Highlights

Nordfjord, Norway

Autumnal Fjord Landscapes

During the autumn months, the landscapes of the Norwegian Fjords transform into a tapestry of different colours and contrasts. Nordfjord, Geirangerfjord and Storfjord reflect the golden and red hues of the foliage in their serene waters, creating collages of mesmerising patterns that contrast sharply with the snow-dusted peaks of towering mountains. The icy blue shades of Briksdal Glacier shimmer in the autumn sunshine, and the waterfalls cascade down the mountainsides into the deep blue of the fjords below. Explore Briksdal Glacier with a local expert or witness the ethereal beauty of Kjenndalen Glacier before enjoying a scenic boat ride on Lovatnet Lake. Your cruise aboard Bolette will also offer opportunities for you to discover the smaller Hjørundfjord, which cuts through the spectacular Sunnmøre Alps.

Kayaking in the Norwegian fjords

Experience Friluftsliv

On this Bolette cruise, you'll have many opportunities to immerse yourself in the Norwegian concept of Friluftsliv by spending time outside and embracing a connection with nature. Enjoy a scenic hike over the Flofjellet Mountain pass, a historical link between Nordfjord, Møre, and Romsdal, joined by an experienced guide who will lead you through old trail paths, past traditional Norwegian mountain farms, breathtaking lakes, and magnificent waterfalls; or join a tour to Runde Island for a spot of birdwatching with a guide. Do take time to experience kayaking on the jewel-like waters of Nordfjord, from Olden, where you'll see the fjord from a different perspective. Ex-pat Steve St. Peter will accompany you on this cruise to talk about the way of life and culture in Norway.

Trollstigen, Norway

Ascending the Norwegian fjordland

Norway's landscapes mix hilly terrain with narrow fjords that can be vulnerable to the country's lengthy winters and deep snowfall, making it challenging to implement engineering plans to traverse the country. However, over the years, Norwegian engineers have devised novel approaches to reaching some of the country's most distant locations. During your Bolette cruise, you will have the chance to experience the Loen Skylift in Olden which will take you to the top of Mount Hoven, a near-vertical climb that leads to beautiful hiking routes with spectacular views of Nordfjord. Experience an exhilarating journey on the winding roads and hairpin bends of the Troll's Path (Trollstigen) offering breathtaking vistas of steep cliffs and cascading waterfalls, or enjoy a scenic drive along the renowned Atlantic Ocean Road, with iconic bridges linking tiny islets. There will also be opportunities to experience beautiful Norwegian scenery, from the Rauma Railway or a fjord gondola to the peak viewpoint of Mount Roaldshornet.
