Pinched between the spectacular islands of Austvagoy and Hinnoya, the 25-kilometre-long, size-restricted Raftsundet Strait is only accessible to smaller ships such as those in the Fred. Olsen fleet.
On a scenic cruise through Raftsundet, your ship will navigate a narrow canyon of glass-like waters and mountains, bringing you almost to touching distance of the rugged, low-lying rock faces along one side of the sound, and the mighty Raftsundet Alps – which soar up to 1,200 metres – dominating the other.
