  12:00am Lysefjord, At Sea, Norway
End to end, it measures 42 kilometres (26 mi) with rocky walls falling nearly vertically over 1,000 metres (3,300 ft) into the water. Not only is the fjord long and narrow, it is in places as deep as the mountains are high.

  12:00am Eidfjord, Norway
The Norwegian cruise port Eidfjord is just a small sleepy village but it stands on the edge of huge scale attractions including the largest high mountain plateau (Hardangervidda) and Norways largest national park.

  12:00am Hardangerfjord, At Sea, Norway
The Hardangerfjord is the fourth longest fjord in the world, and the second longest fjord in Norway. It is located in Hordaland county in the Hardanger region. The fjord stretches 179 kilometres from the Atlantic Ocean into the mountainous interior of Norway along the Hardangervidda plateau. The innermost point of the fjord reaches the town of Odda.

  12:00am Maloy, Sogn og Fjordane, Norway
During World War II, it was used as a German coastal fortress, which led to the eradication of all settlement on the island to make room for the fortress. Few streets in Maloy are named; most, especially the ones on the hillside, are only numbered.

28 Jul 2020
  12:00am Kristiansund, Norway
Enjoy an excursion to Grip Fishermans Island which back in the 15th and 16th centuries was an important society. Although there is no permanent settlement here nowadays, we can feel the atmosphere it has absorbed over time. Enjoy harbour sightseeing by sundboat and discover the Atlantic Road.

  12:00am Hellesylt, Norway
The small village of Hellesylt is an old Viking port located at the head of the Sunnylvenfjord on the northwest coast of Norway. Here, glacier-fed streams cascade over towering granite cliffs and descend to the calm waters of the fjord. The thundering waterfalls, snow-capped mountains, lakes and crystalline glaciers, inspired Henrik Ibsen's dramatic masterpiece, "Brand."

  12:00am Geirangerfjord, At Sea, Norway
The fjord is one of Norway's most visited tourist sites. In 2005, it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This fjord is surrounded by some of the steepest mountains on the entire west coast. It is very narrow and has no habitable shore area, for the precipitous heights rise in sheer and rugged strata almost straight out of the water. Foaming waterfalls plunge into the fjord from jagged peaks.

  12:00am Alesund, Norway
In 1904, a massive fire destroyed 800 buildings in this fishing port. Germany's Kaiser Wilhelm II responded with immediate aid, and Alesund was reborn. Not surprisingly, the town was rebuilt in the then-popular Art Nouveau style known as Jugendstil. The result is one of the prettiest ports in Norway. Buildings with elegant turrets and spires can be seen lining the streets of the city centre. Today, the city is one of Norway's most important fishing harbours and the world's largest supplier of Klipfish - dried cod. Alesund's major attractions are the surrounding fjords and the stunning Sunnmore Alps.

31 Jul 2020
  12:00am Flaam (Flam), Norway
Lying at the head of Aurlandsfjord, this small village of some 400 people 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.
