Norway/Fjords Cruise: 7-nights in August 2012.

Cruise around the rugged glacier-carved inlets, cascading waterfalls and picturesque ports of the Norwegian Fjords. Depart Southampton and head to Stavanger, Norway, the gateway to Norway with spectacular scenic fjordland. Your ship will dock right next to Gamle Stavanger, the old quarter, with its collection of 200-year-old white wooden houses. The peaceful village of Olden has the perfect Fjordland cruise setting - nestling at the southern end of one branch of the beautiful Nordfjord and at the entrance to the gorgeous Oldedalen Valley. A lake in the valley has been turned a rich, deep green by the river pouring down the mountains from the vast, million-years-old Briksdal Glacier. Giant waterfalls also cascade down making the views even more spectacular as you travel through the valley to the foot of the glacier. As you cruise along to the ships anchorage off Geiranger cruise port, just marvel at the views as spectacular waterfalls with evocative names like Bridal Veil and The Seven Sisters cascade down from the steep rocky peaks that overlook the fjord from both sides. Geiranger is just a small village resort which simply makes the ideal base for walking, boating, or motoring tours into a surrounding area full of natural beauty and magnificent scenery with snow-capped mountains, verdant valleys, plunging waterfalls and age-old glaciers. In Bergen, Norway, a beautiful town nestled in the mountains, be sure to stop in at some of the fascinating art galleries and take the funicular railway to the top of Mount Fløyen to enjoy the best views of this picturesque city.
