Famous for its fjords and mountains that are easy to access and breathtaking to see, Norway makes the ideal place for nature lovers to experience a bounty of beauty at any time of year.
Taking a cruise along Norway’s western coast is one of the best ways to see the fjords and take in all the this idyllic country has to offer.
The Norwegian coast is made up of more than 60,000 islands, which makes it the perfect place to navigate by boat. Cruiseliners can sail through the serene waters, giving visitors exceptional views of the islands, fjords and coastline.
Two of the fjords, Geirangerfjord and Nærøyfjord are among the most beautiful, and are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site list. Thirty different ports along the coast allow for travelers to pick which part of the Norwegian Coast they’d like to see, and create an itinerary that is unique and exciting.
Stopping along the coast at different ports is also a great way to experience Norway. Travelers will get to experience the unique cultural attractions along the coast such as shops, museums, and restaurants.
Itineraries can also be crafted to allow travelers a longer stop at a port for polar expeditions, camping, golfing, fishing, hiking and a wide range of other outdoor activities.
To book a fjord cruise in Norway, simply look up the port you’d like to depart from and research the tour operators that depart from that port to find the ideal trip for you.
