Glaciers, Mountains & Fjords
A no-fly cruise from Dover
The coastline of Norway is justifiably lauded as one of the world’s great natural wonders, and this exceptional value, week-long cruise aboard elegant Balmoral makes for the perfect introduction. Lovely maritime Bergen is the first stop, with time to explore its UNESCO-listed historic heart, then we sail north for a scenic journey along Nordfjord and past the Hornelen sea cliff. Nærøyfjord, gateway to the iconic Flåmsbana mountain railway, is also UNESCO-listed, recognising some of the region’s most dramatic vistas.

Day 1 - Dover
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your journey to Dover, where our staff will greet you and assist with embarking Balmoral (3T+) in preparation for a late evening sailing.
Day 2 - At sea
Balmoral makes a delightful home-from-home during this Scandinavian adventure. Take this day at sea to familiarise yourself with its fine amenities.
Day 3 - Bergen, Norway
The cobbled streets of Bergen, lined with colourful timbered houses, echo with maritime history, and invite a fascinating day’s exploration. Be sure to head for pretty Bryggen Wharf, once the heart of Hanseatic trade, now UNESCO World Heritage listed, where the centuries-old buildings have been restored with consummate skill.
Day 4 - Olden - cruising Nordfjord - cruising Hornelen
Our first introduction to the natural wonders of Norway could scarcely be more memorable. Picturesque Nordfjord winds its way beyond skyscraping mountains, vast glaciers and the highest sea cliff in Europe towards the charming village of Olden, set in an idyllic Alpine landscape. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 5 - Flåm - cruising Nærøyfjord
A cruise along Nærøyfjord reveals just why National Geographic has rated this waterway the world’s number one natural heritage site. 11 miles long and just 500m wide in places, overlooked by snow-capped mountains, plunging waterfalls and tiny hillside farms, the fjord is endlessly spectacular. It leads too to Flåm, starting point for the iconic Flåmsbana Mountain Railway. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 6 - Cruising Lysefjord, Preikestolen & Kjerag
Majestic and wild, the 26-mile waterway of Lysefjord presents unforgettable vistas at every turn, not least two extraordinary natural features - the mountain-top plateau of Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) and the large round Kjerag boulder, incongruously wedged between two sheer cliffs as if it were dropped from a height.
Day 7 - At sea
Relax aboard Balmoral as it sails back to UK shores.
Day 8 Dover
We disembark after breakfast and you will be met and guided to your Titan vehicle, for the journey home.
