Highlights

Views of Hardangerfjord, Norway

Landscapes of the fjords

Hardangerfjord is one of Norway's most picturesque waterways, renowned for its lush green landscapes and fruit orchards, and as Borealis glides along its serene waters, you'll also be able to admire breath-taking scenery of craggy mountains and cascading waterfalls. Your ship will divert into the size-restricted Maurangerfjord to the thundering falls of Fureberg, so you can see them from as close as possible, while Ulvik is your gateway to Kjosfoss Waterfall and the not-to-be-missed Flam railway. From Eidfjord, do take time to discover Voringfoss Waterfall to experience it at its most powerful.

Kayaking in the Norwegian fjords

The Norwegian concept of Friluftsliv 

Embrace the Norwegian concept of spending time in nature, so we've designed this Borealis cruise for you to fully immerse yourself in outdoor activities as much as possible. Eidfjord is the ideal destination in which to enjoy boating or kayaking on the calm, clear waters of Hardangerfjord, while Ulvik offers the opportunity to experience foraging on a tour to discover just how many edible plants are growing in the wild that can be used for nutrition. Both Eidfjord and Ulvik have spectacular hiking trails, with the latter offering spectacular views of the Osafjord.

Scenic cruising in Lysefjord, Norway

Fjord Geology

Formed over millions of years by the combination of glacial activity, tectonic forces and erosion, the fjords of Norway have been carved into deep valleys, flanked by steep mountainous terrain and hanging valleys where waterfalls cascade into the waters below. The magnificent Fureberg waterfall, located on an arm of Maurangerfjord, thunders down the steep hillside into the fjord, where your Captain will manoeuvre Borealis close enough for you to feel the spray on your face. Pulpit Rock (Preikstolen) stands over 600 metres tall, watching over you as you sail along the deep blue waters of Lysefjord, while the intriguing Kjeragbolten - a giant rock wedged between a crevice on Mount Kjerag, can also be seen.
