Norway is towering frozen peaks and tumbling waterfalls, sweeping valleys and deep-blue waters. This mesmerising cruise glides through the heart of the country’s famous fjords, docking in some of the prettiest - and most remote - towns and villages along the way. The chance to join the iconic Flåm Railway is undoubtedly a highlight as it twists and turns through breathtaking scenery. We’ll then cruise through Nordfjord and Geirangerfjord, ending in the picturesque former capital of Bergen.

Day 1
At London Tilbury Port, embark Columbus (3T) in preparation for late afternoon sailing.

Day 2
We arrive in the contemporary hub of Rotterdam this morning, known for its futuristic architecture, towering skyscrapers and spectacular museums. Choose to wander into the centre of the city, or perhaps hop on the quick shuttle service. Rotterdam is lively, modern and culturally rich and makes for an interesting walk as you navigate its busy streets, small alleys and many bridges. Coffee culture is rife here, so maybe stop for a brew and a spot of people watching, or indulge in some local treats such as sticky stroopwafels (caramel waffles).

Day 3


Day 4
Nestled in a truly spectacular setting beside Sognefjord, Flåm’s stunning natural beauty has made it a popular tourist destination since the late 19th century. One of the area’s highlights is undoubtedly the Flåm Railway, as it twists and turns through the steep-sided Flåm Valley and some of Norway’s most breathtaking scenery. The world’s second-longest (203km) fjord is also impressive - in some places the sheer cliff walls tower over 1,000m out of the sea. Take in the stunning landscapes, waterfalls, and remote villages as we sail through.

Day 5
Charming Olden sits at the end of Nordfjord, amongst tidy, well-kept farms on gently sloping, fertile hillsides, which then rise steeply into thickly wooded and rugged peaks. From the village the beautiful Oldendalen Valley runs between towering mountains to the edge of the mighty Jostedalsbreen Glacier. Briksdal Glacier is one of the more accessible arms of the Jostedalsbreen. The creeping pitted tentacle of ice features in optional excursions from Olden together with glorious waterfalls, glacier fed rivers and wonderful mountain lakes. Nordfjord is our scenic cruising destination this evening.

Day 6
From a small farming village that was relatively isolated in the 1800s, Geiranger has grown into one of Norway’s most popular tourist resorts. It sits at the head of the stunningly beautiful Geirangerfjord against a backdrop of splendid mountain scenery. From Geiranger, steep roads snake their way up to dizzying heights and panoramic views that are quite literally breathtaking. Snow-dusted peaks, wild tumbling waterfalls, lush green valleys and dramatic gorges stretch as far as the eye can see with their reflections in the mirror-calm waters of the incredible Geirangerfjord far below. Ship to shore tender service.

Day 7
During the early Middle Ages Bergen was Norway’s proud capital - a heritage that can still be glimpsed in its beautifully preserved streets. Now known mainly as the beautiful gateway to the fjords of Norway, it is not just the striking landscape surrounding the city that lures visitors each year. Bergen is home to fascinating and picturesque quarters waiting to be explored - not least of which is Bryggen, a photogenic UNESCO World Heritage Site, plus a series of boutique shops selling crafts and traditional souvenirs that gives the city a real small-town feel.

Day 8


Day 9
