With hours of inspirational scenic cruising to experience, and time ashore to get even closer to spectacular fjords too, you’re in for a week of endless rewards on this springtime sailing. Mighty glaciers and breathtaking waterfalls, world-famous railways, spectacular viewpoints and much more: an abundance of Norway’s very best attractions await your discovery.

Unforgettable from start to finish, your foray into the fjords begins with a magical day of scenic cruising[ReadMoreMob]A bridge at the entrance of Lysefjord restricts larger vessels, but thanks to your ship’s smaller size, you’ll sail inland to revel in this spellbinding waterway’s uncanny peace and extraordinary landscapes. A journey along the size-restricted Karmsund Strait affords a rare opportunity to admire its countryside scenes and impressive bridges too, before Boudicca takes you to see Langfoss – one of the world’s most beautiful waterfalls – tumbling down the jagged cliffs of Akrafjord. Stopping at Flåm, on the tranquil banks of Aurlandsfjord, provides your first chance to go ashore in search of some of the fjordland’s greatest highlights. A ride on the Flåmsbana Railway, regarded as one of the best train journeys on earth, is highly recommended to see imposing mountains and crashing waterfalls up-close for unmissable photo opportunities. Alternatively, opt to the head to the 650-metre-high Stegastein Lookout, for views of Aurlandsfjord and Sognefjord to savour forever. [ReadMoreDesk]

Up next is Olden, tucked away at the very farthest reaches of Nordfjord. From this pretty village you could set-off on an incredible exploration of the Briksdalen Valley to seek-out the awe-inspiring Briksdal Glacier and see it glistening in the spring light; or perhaps head for Lovatnet Lake, an unspoilt haven and natural habitat for various bird species. Finally, after relaxing scenic cruising back along Nordfjord, and another rewarding journey through the Karmsund Strait, it’s on to Stavanger for a culture-rich end to your cruise. Home to an array of diverse attractions, including the historic Gamla Stavanger district, the interesting Canning Museum and even Norway’s fourth largest shopping mall, you’ll find there’s plenty to uncover in the former ‘European Capital of Culture’.
