Cruise Description

9 Night Cruise sailing from Dover roundtrip aboard Boudicca.

A nine-night adventure full of scenic treasures, this cruise on board Boudicca is your chance to experience some of the most incredible natural beauty that Norway’s enchanting fjordland has to offer. Enjoy calls at serene fjord villages and beautiful cities, complemented by hours of mesmerising scenic cruising; every moment you spend on board your ship and ashore will be one to remember.

A stop at Bergen is your chance to uncover the various of highlights this Hanseatic gem. You may opt to explore the colourful, UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf; learn about the life and works of Edvard Grieg at the Troldhaugen; and even sample Klippfisk at the busy fish market. Be sure to take in the scenic views from atop Mount Fløyen too, whatever you choose to do. From Norway’s second largest city’s it’s on to two tiny fjordland villages. Picturesque Hellesylt is the starting point for tours to striking natural wonders such as Hellesylt Waterfall, Tystigen Glacier and the Hornindalsvatnet Lake. Your short stop here is sandwiched between scenic cruising by Strandafjellet Mountain and along Geirangerfjord – another of Norway’s most spectacular Natural World Heritage Sites. Then there’s charming Olden, situated within the glorious Nordfjord. Within reach here are a plethora of spellbinding natural wonders, such as the Briksdalen Valley and stunning Briksdal Glacier, and the Lovatnet Lake. A boat tour of Lovatnet offers you the chance to see the lake’s incredible scenery up-close.

Deep within Sognefjord your ship stops at Flåm. You could take a ride on the iconic Flåmsbana railway and see tumbling waterfalls; or head to the 650-metre-high Stegastein Lookout for breathtaking views of Sognefjord. After Flåm you’ll also experience an unforgettable scenic cruise of Nærøyfjord – one of National Geographic’s top two Natural World Heritage Sites – before it’s on to Stavanger. Here you have opportunities to join a boat tour to the spectacular Lysefjord, taking in rugged scenes from glass-like waters; or perhaps spend a relaxing afternoon in the city, where attractions such as the historic Gamla Stavanger district, the Canning Museum and Norway’s fourth largest shopping mall are particular highlights. Finally, Boudicca cruises into Hardangerfjord all the way to Eidfjord, your gateway to Vøringsfossen – one of Norway’s most famous waterfalls – and Hardangervidda Nature Centre.

Highlights of this cruise:

Bergen, Norway
Seven hills and seven fjords frame Hanseatic Bergen, a city steeped in maritime heritage. Of Bergen’s many attractions, the 900-year-old UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf. A delight to explore, the Bryggen's cobbled stairways are lined with traditional half-timbered buildings and climb away from the waterfront, leading to curious open spaces that are often overflowing with colourful flowers that perfume the air.

Bergen has a vibrant fish market and hosts one of Norway's biggest cultural events of the year, the Bergen International Festival. The city was once the home of Norway's most famous composer, Edvard Grieg, and the Troldhaugen Museum is devoted to his life’s work.

Not to be missed is a chance to ride the Funicular Railway to the top of Mount Fløyen, offering spectacular panoramic views of Bergen and its scenic surroundings.

Flåm, Norway
Flåm is a tiny village on the banks of the Aurlandsfjord, a branch of the spectacular Sognefjord – the longest and deepest fjord in Europe. Situated amongst scenes of picturesque orchards, hamlets, cottages and farmland, this is one of Norway's most breathtaking locations.

Visitors to Flåm are often drawn to the charming village church, with its traditionally decorated walls, while the Flåmsbana Railway is ranked highly on the fjordland's must-do list. Climbing over 20km as it passes through the magnificent mountain scenery, the Flåmsbana takes in incredible sights such as the striking Kjosfossen Waterfall, crashing 225 metres down rugged cliffs. The Flåmsbana Museum, exploring the railway’s design and construction, is worth visiting too.

Flåm is also perfectly situated for boat tours to UNESCO-listed Naeroyfjord, one of National Geographic's top natural heritage sites.

Stavanger, Norway
Behind the bustle of the prosperous and cosmopolitan Stavanger of today lie 1,000 years of ancient seafaring tradition and history. This vibrant, exciting Norwegian city oozes charm and was awarded the prestigious title of ‘European Capital of Culture’ in 2008.

The city’s wealth has prompted its tag as Norway’s ‘Oil Capital’, but Stavanger has remained as charming as ever. The old town, Gamle Stavanger, has narrow winding streets and ancient wooden houses gathered round an historic fresh fish and vegetable market. Stavanger is also a university city, which is reflected in the city’s lively, urban atmosphere, and in the varied assortment of shopping and dining experiences.

The Norwegian Petroleum Museum exhibits drilling equipment, a model oil platform, submersibles and audio-visual shows, while the city’s Herring Canning Museum celebrates one of Stavanger’s earlier sources of wealth. Beyond the town, the Three Swords monument commemorates the 9th century battle of Hafrsfjord – the moment Harald Hårfagre became the first King of Norway.

Stavanger is also perfectly placed for the breath-taking Lysefjord, one of the most famous Norwegian Fjords. This stunning waterway is home to the Kjerag Mountain and Preikestolen (The Pulpit Rock) – two of the country's most popular attractions.
