Cruising the Norwegian Fjords

Thanks to Fred Olsen’s Braemar which has shorter, shallower dimensions you’ll experience unforgettable scenic cruising of narrow fjords and waterways on this incredible eight night sailing. You’ll take in spectacular landscapes and highly-rated natural wonders which are out of reach to larger cruise ships. You can enjoy wonderful varied scenery – rugged cliffs, waterfalls, soaring mountains, a glacier and two Natural World Heritage sites. Visits to two vibrant Norwegian cities – Bergen and Stavanger are included.

Cruising the Norwegian Fjords

About this excursion

From £1199 per person You can take advantage of your ship’s smaller size from the very beginning of yourCruise Map foray into the fjords, sailing first along the glassy waters of the Lysefjord – lined by soaring mountains and rugged cliff faces – and the pretty Karmsund Strait, both of which are size-restricted. Then, tucked away within Hardangerfjord – Norway’s second longest fjord – you’ll discover enchanting Eidfjord. Here you can experience an exhilarating fjord kayaking adventure; or take a tour to marvel at the beautiful Vøringfoss Waterfall.

The fascinating Hardangervidda Nature Centre is well worth a visit too. Sailing back along Hardangerfjord in the afternoon will present views of gorgeous orchards and towering mountains, before Braemar diverts into Maurangerfjord to offer you a chance to capture the cascading Furebergfossen Waterfall. The magnificent Jotunheimen Mountains and Jostedalbreen – mainland Europe’s largest glacier – are just two of the awe-inspiring sights awaiting you next, during a day in idyllic Skjolden. From here the Nigardsbreen Glacier, an arm of the astonishing Jostedalbreen, and the spellbinding Jostedalen Valley are within easy reach too. After taking in the scenic delights ashore, Braemar will guide you on another magical evening of scenic cruising along Lustrafjord, Sognefjord – Norway’s longest fjord – and into Nærøyfjord, one of National Geographic’s top two Natural World Heritage Sites.Braemar in Eidfjord

Take the chance to explore the historic Bryggen Wharf and ride the funicular to the top of Mount Fløyen in Bergen; then discover the many attractions of Stavanger – a former European capital of Culture.
