Cruises in Norway

Along the coastline from south to north, you have an amazing opportunity to let yourself be fascinated by the unique nature highlights, beautiful fjords and fjord towns.

If you are lucky to be in Norway through the seasons for Northern Light or Midnight Sun, you will go home with an unforgettable memory extra. The stunning Norwegian nature and scenery will not let you down. Whether you dream of seeing the northern lights, the Norwegian fjords, the North Cape or all of them, there are many kinds of cruises in Norway.


Why take on a cruise in Norway

All along the 2,000 km of coast, you find mountains tower up above narrow fjords, fishing villages and glaciers. In summer it`s the time for seeing the Midnight Sun, and in winter you have the chance to see the alluring Northern lights. 

Norway is a perfect cruise destination because you will have the best views of the dramatic coastline in the fjords from a ship.

Distances are long, and the seaway is often the quickest and most pleasant way to get from A to B in this long mountainous country.


Popular cruise destinations

You can either sail to Norway with a cruise ship from a European city or fly directly to Norway and start your cruise experience with example Hurtigruten, which is the largest Norwegian cruise operator.

Popular destinations in Norway to be mentioned are Flåm, Bergen, Oslo, North Cape, Hardangerfjord, Geirangerfjord, Ålesund, Tromsø, Lofoten Islands.


Cruise is the perfect way to explore Norway

It`s a popular choice to take a cruise with 'Hurtigruten' with a coastal steamer from Bergen in the South to Kirkenes in the North, and it`s also an important means of transportation for the locals as well. This is what makes a holiday on the Hurtigruten something quite different from your usual cruise holiday.

Most cruises will stop in the historical city of Bergen and sail through the famous Sognefjord and Geirangerfjord.

Many cruises take you to Flaam, where you can take a trip on the famous Flaam railway. Olden and the Birksdal glacier is another popular stop.

Forget about check in and out of hotels, pack and unpack luggage or checking for transport options to attractions. It is a perfect combination to experience the land from the sea, and do some sightseeing stops in between.

You always have restaurants, bars and amusements just outside your cabin door, but the main focus all the time is an incredible nature outside and there at so many must-sees attractions here.
