For a life affirming experience, embark on a Norwegian fjord expedition.
Norwegian Fjords Destinations
Many fjord cruises include the country’s capital, Oslo and the beautiful city of Bergen before heading north to appreciate the natural beauty. While in Oslo make sure you admire the architecture of the Royal Palace, the Opera House, the City Hall and the Parliament. When in Bergen, head to the oldest part of the city on the north side – where there are wooden houses that date to the eighteenth century.
Through the journey, you’ll generally have the opportunity of admiring incredible glaciers, rugged mountains and pristine waterways. Big ticket attractions include Geirangerfjord and Hardangerfjord. A major destination in the very north of the country near the Russian border is Kirkenes. After docking, head to the Grenseland Museum, which covers the history of the region and boasts native art exhibitions.
When To Go
The best time to appreciate a Norwegian fjord cruise is in summer – when days are wonderfully long. You may like to time your Norwegian fjord expedition when the Northern Lights are displaying their full glory.
