    The highlights of this cruise

    Fjords, mountains and waterfalls – plus natural beauty and urban flair in laid-back cities: setting off from Hamburg, you’ll head for Norway’s dream cruise destinations. As the ship passes through the Hardangerfjord, it will already become clear what makes this country so unique. As you cruise along Norway’s second-largest fjord, an indescribable landscape opens up on all sides. And it culminates in a real jewel: EIDFJORD. For every square kilometre of nature, this small community has exactly one person. This tranquil idyll has plenty of space for exploration and exciting excursions – including a kayak tour* through deep-blue waters. In VIK you can visit the Hopperstadt stave church* – while in FLAM you’ll have the opportunity to ride the legendary Flam Railway*, which will take you through tunnels and spectacular bends as you head past waterfalls and up into the mountains.

    The glacier hike* in picturesque OLDEN also promises wonderful views. As you head north, you’ll alternate between active experiences and more relaxing moments. Off the coast near Skarsvag, for example, an almost magical panoramic view awaits you at the NORTH CAPE* – Europe’s northernmost point. And the pleasant university city of TROMSOE is equally impressive. Stroll past the brightly coloured fishermen’s houses, and make sure you sample the freshly caught fish specialities at the harbour. The EUROPA is celebrating a premiere destination near the Saltstraumen, which has the world’s strongest tidal current: BODOE. The largest city in the Nordland province is situated on a peninsula. It surprises visitors with its lively metropolitan ambience and its sizeable art, music and cultural scenes.

    Set against a picturesque backdrop of craggy mountain peaks, the area is home to an impressive array of wildlife. With a little luck, you’ll spot one of the majestic white-tailed eagles on the horizon – this is where the world’s largest population of these birds is found. After a laid-back day at sea, you’ll explore the splendour of classic Norway at a leisurely pace. The EUROPA passes through extended inlets fjord by fjord, cruising past untamed landscapes – until it reaches a UNESCO World Heritage Site and natural masterpiece: GEIRANGERFJORD. Waterfalls that spring almost vertically from cliffs, wildly romantic meadows and dense forests that are reflected in the clear waters. Enjoy this unique panorama from the deck, and marvel at a kind of beauty that is hard to describe with words alone.

    Brimming with new insights, you will head for the seven mountains that surround the city centre of BERGEN. No Nordland cruise would be complete without a visit to this old Hanseatic trading centre. You will have a whole day to explore the modern city with its vibrant history. Why not travel back in time on a walk through historical Bryggen*? Or relax with a freshly brewed coffee speciality in one of the centre’s many cafes, soaking in the city’s charming ambience? Bergen is typically Norwegian – so it’s the perfect way to round off your cruise, which will come to an end after you spend a day at sea and then travel along the Elbe to Hamburg.

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