Cruise Tjeldsundet Strait Cruises

The Tjeldsund Bridge, Tjeldsundet Strait, Norway

Slicing through the rugged landscapes of Troms og Finnmark, separating the islands of Hinnøya and Tjeldøya from the mainland, the Tjeldsundet Strait has long been – since Viking times in fact – one of Norway’s most important waterways, serving as vital route between the country’s northern and southern regions.

But while shipping vessels sail this route to save precious time on their journeys, Fred. Olsen’s smaller ships take you along these glassy waters for a much more memorable, rewarding and exciting reason – to experience the beauty and peace of Tjeldsundet, revel in the might of the flanking mountains and the drama of the rock faces, and see the impressive Tjeldsund Bridge. A scenic cruising adventure to remember.
