Don’t miss the lakeside home of legendary composer Edvard Grieg, too. Then there is Flåm, starting point for journeys on the famous Flåmsbana Railway. Take a ride to experience the scenic splendour of magnificent [ReadMoreDesk]mountains and cascading waterfalls, as your carriage ascends high into the valleys. Elsewhere, the Stegastein Lookout – situated over 2000 feet above the breathtaking Sognefjord – offers unrivalled photo opportunities. Following Flåm, unforgettable scenic cruising of the incredible Nærøyfjord will present you an opportunity to admire the twisting, narrow landscapes of one National Geographic’s top two Natural World Heritage Sites. 

A full day in Ålesund affords ample time to stroll this pretty port town’s pedestrianised streets, home to a collection of art-nouveau towers, turrets, steeples and spires. You could combine your exploration here with a hike to the peak of Mount Aksla to see the town from above; or even join a tour to wild Hjorundfjord, one of Norway’s hidden treasures. Visiting Olden, gateway to some of the fjordland’s greatest wonders, is sure to be a highlight of your adventure. The glorious Briksdalen Valley, awe-inspiring Briksdal Glacier and Lovanet Lake, surrounded by towering mountains and impressive glaciers, are all within reach on tours. Back on board Boudicca, you’ll be left captivated by the serenity and scenery of Nordfjord, Maurangerfjord and Hardangerfjord, en route to Eidfjord. Situated deep within Hardangerfjord, Eidfjord is the perfect base from which to tour to the Hardanger Juice and Cider Factory, to learn of and sample produce from Hardangerfjord, also known as the ‘Orchard of Norway’, such as apple juice and authentic cider. Concluding your trip is a stop at Stavanger, a former European Capital of Culture, ensuring a rewarding end to your time in Norway.
