Majestic mountains, wondrous waterfalls and pretty ports vie for your attention when you sail along Norway’s corrugated coast.

Spend today exploring Bergen’s 900-year-old Bryggen Wharf, a delightfully colourful quay of maritime heritage. The maritime museum or the cafés and shops within half-timbered houses are wonderful and welcoming. You may want to visit a museum devoted to Norway’s most famous composer, Edvard Grieg, or ride a funicular railway to the highest peak of the Seven Mountains.
Day 4 - Flåm - cruising Nærøyfjord
After sailing through Sognefjord - Europe’s longest and deepest fjord - we dock early this morning in Flåm. Why not take a stroll along the waterside, passing cottages, orchards and farmland? Or explore the beautiful Nærøyfjord nearby. Late this afternoon, you can view this UNESCO protected area from the water as we sail its length towards Gudvangen, a small Viking village at the head of the fjord. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 5 - Cruising by Strandafjellet - Hellesylt - Cruising Geirangerfjord
This morning, we cruise past soaring mountains, including popular skiing location Strandafjellet. In the afternoon we arrive in the tiny Viking port of Hellesylt, one of Norway’s most beautiful fjord locations. Easy walking trails survey the stunning Hellesylt Waterfall and the Kjellstaddalen and Moldskreddalen valleys. Our cruise continues through Geirangerfjord this evening, passing snow-capped mountains and the fabled Seven Sisters Waterfall.
Day 6 - Olden - cruising Nordfjord
Early this morning, we dock in Olden, a charming village on the magnificent Nordfjord. This is a great opportunity to visit the glaciers of Jostedalsbreen or take in the landscape from the Loen Skylift. Later this afternoon we cruise peacefully along Nordfjord. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 7 - Cruising Maurangerfjord and Hardangerfjord - Eidfjord
Have a camera in hand as we cruise alongside Furebergfossen waterfall and the many gems of Hardangerfjord, on our way to Eidfjord. This picturesque village sits before snow-peaked mountains engraved with glistening rivers and tumbling waterfalls. Hiking is popular here, so don’t forget some suitable shoes to explore the network of marked trails.
Day 8 - Stavanger
As a former European Capital of Culture, Stavanger has plenty of history, tradition and charm to discover. It’s also perfectly placed for Lysefjord, a stunning waterway famous for the Kjerag Mountain and Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) - two of the country's most impressive attractions.
Day 9 - At sea
Spend the day on board as we sail home. Maybe read a book and relax or choose to listen to a fascinating talk by a guest speaker. Enjoy lunchtime melodies or a piano recital, then walk a mile with the cruise fitness instructor.

We disembark after breakfast. Your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
