With four days to explore a land of beautiful waterways, awe-inspiring natural wonders and enchanting towns, cities and villages, you’ll spend most of this seven-night cruise reaping the rich rewards of Norway’s spellbinding fjords. From shifting glaciers and tumbling waterfalls to famous scenic railways and fascinating historic sites, highlights aplenty await your discovery.

Visiting Bergen affords you an opportunity to revel in this Hanseatic city’s plethora of authentic experiences and diverse attractions. [ReadMoreMob]You’ll find a mix of galleries and museums, including the Troldhaugen – the former home of legendary composer Edvard Grieg, and famous, centuries-old sites such as the UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf and bustling fish market. Don’t miss the chance to ride the funicular railway up Mount Fløyen for stunning views of the city and its surrounding scenery. A host of highlights are yours to uncover during a call at Flåm, too. During your stop at this beautifully unspoilt village, situated deep within the awe-inspiring Sognefjord, you’re sure to be tempted to take a ride on the iconic Flåmsbana Railway, high into the mountains to see towering peaks and cascading waterfalls up-close. Alternatively, opt for a scenic tour that ends with a trip to the Stegastein Lookout to see Sognefjord from 650 metre above the water’s edge, before stepping back on board Boudicca for a rare sailing of the entire Nærøyfjord, a narrow, winding route only accessible to smaller ships.

Ashore in Olden, tucked away deep within Nordfjord’s dramatic landscape, you could bask in the beauty and tranquillity of this picturesque village; or perhaps opt to seek-out impressive wonders nearby. The astonishing Briksdal and Kjenndalen glaciers and pretty Lovatnet Lake are all within reach on tour. The spectacular Loen Skylift, climbing 1,011 metres to the top of Mount Hoven to provide breathtaking panoramas of Nordfjord, is nearby too. After Olden, scenic cruising of Nordfjord and by Hornelen – Europe’s highest sea cliff – aboard Boudicca will provide unmissable photo opportunities, while a diversion down dramatic Lysefjord to see imposing cliffs and intriguing rock formations within this size-restricted waterway, makes for an unforgettable end to four days in the fjordland.
