Cruise Norway’s remote coastlines on a coastal voyage that takes you deep into nature. In Bergen, Norway’s second largest city, marvel at houses clinging to the hillside, wander along historic cobbled streets, and sample superb Norwegian cuisine in the many eateries located in Bryggen, designated a UNESCO World-heritage site. On a magnificent setting overlooking Frei fjord and Kvernes fjord, discover the remarkable wooden stave church in Kvernes, Norway’s only stave church built after the Middle Ages.
Further north, spot seals, sea eagles and perhaps whales as you sail through the Norwegian fjords of the Lofoten Islands, where jagged mountain peaks rise out of reflective bays. Wander through charming fishing villages dotted with colourful wooden houses so emblematic of Scandinavia. Experience Lofoten Islands and Bergen on an Arctic Discovery
