    The highlights of this cruise

    Your cruise along the Norwegian coastline starts in KIEL – one thousand kilometres of labyrinthine fjords and remote bays. Enjoy the colourful contrast between lush, green hills and the deep blue of the ocean as you pass through the Hardangerfjord on your way to EIDFJORD. Take your first excursions out into the countryside to see the paradisiacal landscape. How about a kayak adventure*? Nestled between seven mountain landmarks, BERGEN has a glorious history. Just as it does in the historical wooden houses at the Old Bergen Museum*, this history comes to wonderful life in BRYGGEN*: the winding streets between the skewed houses will lead you back to the Hanseatic era. The EUROPA will follow the green landscapes further inland to laid-back cities such as Andalsnes.  Even modern TRONDHEIM enjoys a picturesque location in the middle of the fjord arm. It was the economic and spiritual heart of Norway for a long time and this university city has lost none of its vibrancy. Cycling* along the historical streets is a wonderful way to explore the area.

    The LOFOTEN ISLANDS, whose cliffs rise out of the North Sea a few kilometres offshore, is in a world of its own. Experience their rugged charm in Leknes: stockfish is traditionally dried outside of the colourful wooden houses and cutters bob on the gentle waves in rustic fishing ports.  Even people in the capital SVOLVAER are primarily dependent on fishing – and art. Drawn by the special light, numerous artists have painted the landscape of the island. See for yourself in the galleries or as you cruise through the TROLLFJORD.

    Norway is a land of myths and almost magical panoramic views, one of which is the view of the sea in the light of the midnight sun. Cruising off SKARSVAG in the evening, you will have the opportunity to witness this natural phenomenon from the slate plateau of North Cape*. Numerous legends surround the creation of the GEIRANGERFJORD, the beauty of which is nothing short of inspirational: waterfalls gushing down from the cliffs, wild, romantic meadows and dense forests reflected in the glassy water – take in the landscape from the deck. Set out into the mountainous landscape from FLAM. The Flam railway*, the steepest normal-gauge railway in Europe, is based here, ascending 865 m (2838 ft) into the air as it takes you through spectacular valleys and past gushing streams. Would you like to experience the scenery at a more active tempo? Then follow one of the numerous walking paths* for an exciting tour of discovery. Who knows, you might even find a troll to take home as a souvenir.

    A day full of different activities in OSLO awaits you as the perfect finishing touch to your cruise. The capital has many different faces, whether you choose to focus on the history of the country on the Bygdoy museum island, or would rather one last look at the skerry landscape from Holmenkollen. One last tip: Raise your glass to the highlights of your cruise in the Ice Bar. Cheers!

    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.
