Tip — Fred.\ has already defaulted the region of this search to find Norway and the Fjords Cruises. Refine your criteria and hit search.
Norway and the fjords that dot this magnificent Scandinavian coastline truly are an unforgettable sight. The breath-taking views that you will experience while you wind your way through snow-capped mountains will prepare you for what you will see as you reach remote picturesque villages. The endless sunshine provides you with every opportunity to take in the indescribable surroundings. Some cruises venture as far as the North Cape and Honningsvagg and from there only the Svalbard Islands stand between you and the North Pole.
The beautiful city of Hamburg is the perfect destination for a tailor-made Fred.\ fly cruise to Norway and the Fjords. The skyline of Hamburg features an extraordinary backdrop of church spires, architectural landmarks and towers, and the whole of the city serves as a gateway to the neighbouring capital of Berlin.
The fjords are definitely a beautiful sight to behold, but there is more to this part of the world than this. Find out what else this breath-taking region has to offer on one of our Scandinavia cruises.

Capture your opportunity to witness the Northern Lights in the Land of the Midnight Sun; Alta is home to the world's first Northern Light observatory, earning Alta the title 'The Town of the Northern Lights', so you could be no better placed to see this spectacular natural phenomenon if luck is on your side.
Bergen is called the "Gateway to the Fjords," as it is a great launching point for a tour of nature's Hardangerfjord, Sognefjord and Geirangerfjord. This city has a wonderful mix of architectural styles that add to its 18th-century charm.
Lying at the head of Aurlandsfjord, the small village of Flaam is surrounded by snow-capped mountains, isolated farmsteads and waterfalls. Flaam also boasts the extraordinary Flaamsbanen. One of the most dramatic train rides in Europe, the Flaamsbanen takes an hour to cover 12 miles, hugging cliffs, plunging through tunnels and pausing for its passengers to admire the views as it ascends the Flaam Valley to a desolate mountain plateau
Bodo lies just north of the Arctic Circle where the midnight sun is visible from 2 June to 10 July. Due to atmospheric refraction, there is no true polar night in Bodo, but because of the mountains south of Bodo, the sun is not visible from the city from early December to early January. Average number of sun hours in Bodo is highest in June with 221 hours.
Moving further North, although Narvik is over 400km north of the Arctic Circle, the harbour is ice-free and in use all year as a centre for exporting iron ore. Although the area has been inhabited since prehistoric times, the town was not established until 1903 when the Ofoten railway was completed. The line is a tourist attraction in itself, running 42km through magnificent scenery to the Swedish border. For visitors who don't have time, a cable car ride from the centre of town to the view-point on the Narvikfjellet Mountain gives fabulous views over the Ofotfjord and surrounding area. Close to the town centre is the Ofoten Museum, with displays of local history including 5,000-year-old rock carvings.
Tromoso is the most northern of Norway's rugged islands; Tromso possesses the true wonders of the polar environment: glistening glacial ridges, the icy clear waters of Lake Prestvatn, even windswept valleys where reindeer roam free. Amidst the beauty, there is fascinating history to be found as well, from ancient northern settlements to signs of sacrificial sites and cults that pre-date Christianity.
