    Oslo/Norway, from 7.00 to 17.00 hrs

    The land of fjords: a masterpiece
    Even at the start of your expedition, you can do a “character study” on a Nordic gem: Oslo. Norway’s capital city, nestled between a blue fjord and green woods, will welcome you with its international flair and Scandinavian lifestyle. Oslo compact* combines fantastic views from Holmenkollen with insights into the life’s work of the Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland. In Vigeland Park, marvel at over 200 monumental figures depicting the cycle of life. You can enjoy even more of the magic of Scandinavian art when you explore the city in the footsteps of Edvard Munch*. The greatest artwork of all still lies ahead. Cruising through the Oslo Fjord, you can enjoy a private view of nature from the deck of the BREMEN: idyllic wooded islands, typical red cottages and gentle lines of hills will slowly pass you by.

    Southern Norwegian world of fjords
    (Flekkefjord, Hardangerfjord, Eidfjord)

    Hugging the coastline, the course leads deep into the southern Norwegian world of fjords which is rarely visited on other cruises to Norway – including Flekkefjord. The woods are more lush, the mountains higher and the air fresher. The port town of Flekkefjord also reflects this primeval state: decorated facades and alleyways adorned with flowers bring the town’s Dutch roots to light. Marvel at the particularly impressive panoramas on the handcar trip on the Flekkefjord railway*. You will encounter pure drama and paradise when you visit Joessingfjord and Sogndalstrand*. The fjord is dominated by dark rock faces, at the feet of which isolated cabins appear like toys. In contrast, the wooden houses nestled together in the bay of Sogndalstrand add some bright touches of colour. It is simply picturesque – to keep it this way, this protected city has joined the “Cittaslow” movement, the International Network of Cities where living is Easy. Impressive panoramas await you when the BREMEN presses on through the narrow Skude fjord and Haugesund to the famous Hardangerfjord, making full use of its advantages as a small ship. Nature rewards this course with a Norwegian interpretation of Switzerland, featuring majestic mountains and lush, green scenery. The BREMEN will sail into the Eidfjord for the first time. The gigantic waterfall Voeringsfossen makes for a breathtaking introduction to nature’s grandiosity on the Hardangervidda plateau*. The largest plateau in Europe will open up broad horizons that span an impressive landscape. Dive into the beauty with a kayak trip on the Eidfjord* or find out about the fascinating power of water* at one of the largest power stations in Europe.

    Bergen, from 7.00 to 18.00 hrs

    Bergen is also a highlight. After a journey on the cog railway, enjoy the views of a “classic” site that features in every Norwegian cruise when you go for a hike on Mount Floeyen*. The stories written by the Fantoft stave church and the composer Edvard Grieg* will also resonate within you for a long time to come.

    Shetland Isles/Great Britain
    (Cruising off the Isle of Noss, Lerwick, Fair Isle )

    Raw island paradise for birds
    The days are long and the nights bright – it is almost midsummer. There is plenty of time to experience a pure expeditionary sensation in the Zodiacs in the vicinity of the approximately 100 Shetland Islands. At the heart of the experience, you will reach the cliffs of the Isle of Noss. From either the deck or the Zodiac, you can witness an open-air concert starring thousands of sea birds which breed on these exposed cliffs at this time of year. Enjoy a quieter but no less exciting journey to Lerwick on the mainland. Jarlshof, the famous archaeological site*, contains traces of Stone Age people, Bronze Age settlers and even Vikings. Alternatively, take a walk on the island of Mousa* and with a little luck you will spot harbour seals and grey seals. Fair Isle is a Garden of Eden for birdwatchers and one of the destinations of our Zodiacs. The spectacular sandstone cliffs and lush grasslands are inhabited by thousands upon thousands of northern fulmars, kittiwakes, northern gannets and puffins.

    Faroe Islands (Torshavn, Mykines )

    Europe’s primeval secrets
    The isolated Faroe Islands are home to high mountains, steep precipices and green meadows. This makes the terrain ideal for approximately 80,000 quadrupeds which give the “sheep islands” their name. The capital city of Torshavn is a colourful addition to the scene. Gain deep insights into the culture and history of the Faroe Islands*, which can be traced back to the 7th century. A walk around the island*, where you can discover basalt dating back to the formation of the Faroe Islands, will take you even further back in time. Weather permitting, you can take the Zodiacs and land on the western island of Mykines, where observation of the puffins works on the basis of reciprocity.

    Westman Islands/Iceland (Heimaey, cruising off Surtsey)

    The Westman Islands, located almost 10 km off the coast of Iceland, are a wonder of creation as well. Heimaey, the largest of these, was laid waste by a volcanic eruption in 1973. Today, it ignites the passion of every explorer to embark on an island tour of the Pompeii of the north*. Researchers study the development of new life on the volcanic island of Surtsey, which was only formed around 50 years ago. Only scientists may set foot on the islands, but cruising around this UNESCO World Heritage Site will give you another chance to marvel at the drama of nature in the North Atlantic. From a beautiful perspective.
