    We land at Urke on a small boat (RIB). Getting on and off the boat requires a certain degree of mobility.

Explore some of Norway’s most dramatic landscapes and see steep mountains plunge into the fjords. We’ll travel by bus from Urke and through the enchanting Norangsdalen valley. Soak in the scenery of the UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord from a ferry, before traveling up the mountains for breathtaking views at the Flydalsjuvet viewpoint.

As we travel on to Eidsdal, you’ll feel like you’re flying as we take the ‘Eagle Road.’ This steep route consists of 11 hairpin bends that offer spectacular views at each turn. A ferry will take us from Eidsdal to Linge as we head to the small village of Stordal. Here, we will enjoy a tasty bite and a drink.

We end the day in cultural Ålesund, a town best known for its art nouveau architecture. You’ll have time to do some short sightseeing and to enjoy the panoramic view of the town and surrounding landscape from the nearby mountain Aksla before boarding the ship.
