Information on Norwegian Fjords Cruises

Information on Norwegian Fjords Cruises
The fjords of Norway are long, narrow inlets located along the western coast and feature waterfalls, fishing, biking, canoeing and summer skiing. Cruising is a popular way to experience the natural beauty of the six major fjords.

Cruise Features

Fjord cruises range from three to 10 nights and often combine train and water travel, along with stops at islands and cities.

Arctic Fjord Cruises

Cruises to Arctic fjords visit the Lofoten Islands, the Helgeland coast with views of Svartisen glacier and Tromso for a gourmet dinner.

Midnight Sun Cruises

Because of Norway's northern location, midnight sun cruises allow visibility for 24 continuous hours in areas north of the Arctic Circle. The Land of the Midnight Sun and the Fjords tour is a 10-day cruise originating in Oslo.

12-Day Cruise

Another cruise on Hurtigruten is 12 days and covers 1,250 miles of the fjord coast of Norway on a round trip originating in Bergen and calling at 34 ports.

Sognefjord and Flam Railway

Sognefjord is Norway's main fjord, being the longest and deepest, and has several smaller branches for extended travel. The Flam Railway crosses a mountain valley between fjords and provides additional travel for fjord cruises.
