Dramatic Fjords, Timeless Villages, and the Dance of Northern Lights Await
Norway is a land defined by dramatic natural landscapes and the silent display of the auroras. Its breathtaking fjords, bluish mountainous backdrops, and quaint coastal towns have captured the imagination of travelers for centuries. Whether you’re after summer adventures or icy waterways, Norway offers a never-ending list of experiences best captured from the deck of a cruise ship.
Explore Norway By Sea
Norway cruises offer a fantastic way to explore the country’s most breathtaking sights.
Nothing beats the serene journeys offered by a Norway fjord cruise, which takes you into the heart of fjords like Geirangerfjord and Nærøyfjord, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Imagine cruising between towering cliffs, waterfalls cascading around you and quaint villages greeting you from the shores.
But the adventures continue beyond the fjords. For an intimate look at Norway’s inland beauty, drift through scenic landscapes dotted with traditional wooden houses and blooming spring meadows. Along the way, you’ll have an opportunity to stop and wander the cobbled streets of picturesque towns like Ålesund, known for its art nouveau architecture and local eateries offering a taste of Norway with dishes like klippfisk (dried and salted cod).
For those seeking a more boutique experience, small ship cruises around Norway bring you closer to hidden coves, tranquil harbors, and the serene beauty of Norway’s vast shoreline. Adventure seekers will feel right at home in ports like Flåm. Here, you can hop onto the famous Flåm Railway, considered to be one of the world’s most beautiful train journeys, kayak through the deep-blue fjords, or even trek through the rolling greenery – only to be welcomed back onboard with the comforts and luxuries of your cruise ship.
Towns such as Bergen, with its historic harbor and vibrant fish market, or Tromsø, known as the gateway to the Arctic, offer an array of exciting activities. For those looking for an immersive experience, Lindblad Expeditions has partnered with National Geographic to show you the wild side of Norway. Lindblad’s luxury Norwegian fjord cruises take you through dramatic narrow fjords and into the icy wilderness of Svalbard – a Norwegian archipelago – where polar bears and walruses prowl and the Northern Lights dance overhead.
