Norwegian Fjords

The mighty landscape of the Norwegian coast has inspired legends and drawn in explorers for thousands of years. Aboard your Norwegian Fjords cruise you will enjoy the perfect vantage point from which to experience this remarkable place, where mirror flat waters are broken by towering, forest covered mountains that scrape an azure blue sky or disappear into the haze of mist and clouds. This is a timeless region of stillness and immense power and beauty. See small fishing villages where generations have made this wild place home, and stop in scenic towns like Bergen and the unimaginably picturesque Nordfjord. On your way to the remote northern islands look out for the fjord land’s wildlife like polar bears, puffins and sea eagles. A Norwegian Fjords cruise takes you to the heart of a truly unique region.
