Discover the natural beauty of Norway

Norway, with its abundance of natural wonders, is arguably one of the most beautiful and photogenic countries on earth. Look forward to a relaxing day cruising along the King of the Fjords, Sognefjord, renowned for its spectacular scenery. Nestled at the head of Aurlandsfjord, a branch of the Sognefjord, is the scenic village of Flm. From here you can set off on a boat trip to see the magical waterfalls that cascade into Naeryfjord, board the famous Flm Railway and journey into the mountains, or take a scenic drive through picture-perfect valleys, where photo opportunities can be found around every bend.

Stavanger, with its lively harbour and historic centre of cobbled streets, offers a gateway to the azure blue waters of Lysefjord. Perhaps join a cruise across the fjord, which sits in the shadow of Pulpit Rock, and gaze into the eerie chasm of Vagabonds Cave. More splendid scenery awaits in Kristiansand, where you can see the traditional wooden houses of time gone by during your included sightseeing tour. For a peak into the surrounding area perhaps take a cruise around the Randesund Archipelago aboard a Norwegian schooner, head to the nearby town of Lillesand for a stroll along the pretty harbour, or hike to Odderya and enjoy views across Kristiansands harbour.
