Come aboard, where fascinating experiences await you over the next few days.
After cruising in the Oslo Fjord with its miniature islands, we will arrive at the Norwegian capital in the evening – perfect for taking a stroll and visiting the Icebar*. The landmarks of the city await you on the following day, including the legendary ski jump* on Holmenkollen and the new opera house. Both also provide panoramic views. You are free to choose how to explore Oslo. Perhaps you want to discover the city at your own pace along the high street Karl Johans Gate, where you can also visit the Norwegian parliament and Royal Palace? Or will you walk in the footsteps of Edvard Munch*? Alternatively, why not visit the climbing park* with around 900 m of zip lines?
A world of ice.
Built with blocks of ice sourced from a region 200 km north of the Arctic Circle, the Icebar in Oslo is famous for its extravagance. Enjoy your drinks well chilled at –5 °C.
A natural masterpiece: Hardangervidda National Park is the largest in Norway – a vast area of 3,422 km2 with prehistoric glaciers and gigantic waterfalls. If you want an active adventure, take a kayak ride in the Eidfjord*.
Wonderful panoramic views wherever you look, such as on a hike to Briksdal Glacier*, the mightiest glacier in Europe. Or on a boat trip on Oldevatnet lake*.
For those who want to keep on top of things: a helicopter flight* over the world of fjords and colossal glaciers in Olden.
When you think of Norway, what comes to mind? Trolls! The panoramic trip* to Trollstigen will take you to the heart of their “homeland”, past sights including the highest vertical wall in Europe at around 1,000 m.
Roses in Norway? The mild climate in Molde makes it possible. There are also sharp turns on one of the most exciting roads in the world, the Atlantic Road*, where 12 or more bridges connect islands and archipelagos.
Your starting point for one of two unforgettable excursions to Flam: either across the fjord landscape*, along deep valleys and past clear mountain lakes, or along steep winding roads and past thundering waterfalls through the magical landscape of Norway*.
Flam and its famous railway* are located at the inner end of the narrow Aurlandsfjord. Enjoy the views of deep gorges and snow-capped peaks. Alternatively, take a bike* or RIB tour* in the Aurlandsfjord.
Bid farewell to the Norwegian landscape and the EUROPA 2 in this coastal city with its colourful merchants’ houses.
