Why take on a cruise in Norway
All along the 2,000 km of coast, mountains tower above narrow fjords, fishing villages and glaciers. In summer, it`s the time to see the Midnight Sun, and in winter, you can see the alluring Northern lights.
Norway is a perfect cruise destination because you will have the best views of the dramatic coastline in the fjords from a ship.
Distances are long, and the seaway is often the quickest and most pleasant way to get from A to B in this long mountainous country.
Popular cruise destinations
You can either sail to Norway with a cruise ship from a European city or fly directly to Norway and start your cruise experience with an example, Hurtigruten, which is the largest Norwegian cruise operator.
Popular destinations in Norway are Flåm, Bergen, Oslo, North Cape, Hardangerfjord, Geirangerfjord, Ålesund, Tromsø and Lofoten Islands.
The perfect way to explore Norway
It`s a popular choice to take a cruise with 'Hurtigruten' a coastal steamer from Bergen in the South to Kirkenes in the North, and it`s also an essential means of transportation for the locals. This makes a holiday on the Hurtigruten quite different from your usual cruise holiday.
Most cruises will stop in the historic city of Bergen and sail through the famous Sognefjord and Geirangerfjord.
Many cruises take you to Flaam, where you can take a trip on the famous Flaam railway. Olden and the Birksdal glacier is another popular stop.
Forget about check-in and out of hotels, packing and unpacking luggage or checking for transport options to attractions. It is a perfect combination to experience the land from the sea and do some sightseeing stops in between.
You always have restaurants, bars and amusements just outside your cabin door, but the main focus is the incredible nature outside and there are so many must-sees attractions here.
