Norway’s ‘royal’ fjords

This expedition cruise encompasses five of Norway’s most beautiful fjords in autumn. Discover why Sognefjord is nicknamed ‘King of the Fjords’ as we explore it and visit the charming village of Flåm. From there, your ship continues to Skjolden at the end of Sognefjord, passing beautiful mountain scenery and remote settlements along the way. You’ll then soak up the scenery of magnificent Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO-listed World Heritage site hailed as ‘Jewel in the Crown’ among the Norwegian fjords.

High peaks and lush valleys

In Nordfjord, you’ll see high peaks and glaciers, fertile valleys and beautiful sandy beaches. We’ll anchor at Loen, where stunning views await at the top of Mount Hoven. Next, you’ll explore the wild, lush valleys of Hardangerfjord, ‘Queen of the Fjords’, and home to some of the prettiest apple orchards in Norway. Cap off your spectacular fjord adventure at Lysefjord and take in the iconic Pulpit Rock viewpoint before sailing back to Dover.

Beautiful autumn colours

Norway is a riot of colour in the autumn months. The mountainsides, hilltops and woods are covered in swathes of red, yellow and orange hues, sharpened by the crisp, clear air. Autumn is also a time for preserving the best of the seasonal produce for the long winter months ahead. Nature’s pantry is full of delicacies ready for harvesting, and our onboard menu, activities and excursions reflect this.
