Cruises to the Norwegian Fjords


Cruising with Fred. Olsen into the heart of the fjordland is the best way to appreciate the spectacular scenery of this other-worldly setting. We expertly craft our Norwegian fjords cruises to showcase the very best of this breathtaking part of the world, taking advantage of our extensive Norwegian heritage and smaller ships ready-made for navigating size-restricted waterways, to bring awe-inspiring natural wonders and enchanting destinations closer to you.

On a Fred. Olsen fjord cruise, you can sail the twisting Nærøyfjord and Geirangerfjord, National Geographic’s top Natural Heritage Sites worldwide; see the Briksdal Glacier; ride the famous Flamsbana Railway; go kayaking in Hardangerfjord; admire cascading waterfalls such as the Seven Sisters from the comfort of your ship; delve into the Hanseatic history of Bergen; and much more. 

So, whether you’re embarking on your first exciting foray into the fjords, or returning – like many others – for another exploration of this astonishing region, you’ll find that the captivating beauty of Fred. Olsen’s homeland is as special as it gets. Find your perfect Norwegian fjord cruise below.

Making the most of every single day


"Norway is beautiful, especially in Autumn, the ships ability to explore further into the fjords enhanced all of the experience".

Cruises to the Norwegian Fjords

The Norwegian Fjords transform through the seasons. In spring the air is beautifully clear; the green foliage is bright and the waterfalls are at their most mighty – perfect for nature lovers.

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy Norway’s landscapes when they are at their greenest, and the longer days mean we can pack in more Scenic Discoveries and enjoy more time ashore.

As part of our re-imagined on board experience, every Norwegian Fjords cruise will feature our five Signature Experience products, enabling guests to discover real insights about the culture and nature of the places we are visiting, so you can arrive in each destination fully prepared to get the most out of your visit.

Treats of the Region
Roasted Salmon, treats of the region dish
