Norway’s ‘royal’ fjords

This springtime expedition cruise encompasses five of Norway’s most beautiful fjords. 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 snowcapped mountains and remote settlements along the way. You’ll then soak up the scenery of magnificent Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO-listed World Heritage site hailed as the ‘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 orchards in Norway. Cap off your spectacular fjord adventure at Lysefjord and take in the iconic Pulpit Rock viewpoint before sailing back to Dover.

Spring is in the air

Sailing in spring, the sun has returned to Norway’s skies, bringing longer, warmer days which awaken local flora and fauna from their winter slumber. Snow still covers the mountains, but as it thaws, meltwater gushes down rock faces, powering beautiful waterfalls and adding a deep colour to rivers. Down in the valleys, pastures are green, fruit trees bloom and idyllic fjord villages emerge from hibernation.
