When you think of the Norwegian Fjords Cruises your mind goes straight away to steep sided rocky inlets surrounded by snow capped mountain peaks, the sun glinting on cascading waterfalls and picturesque towns nestling at the end of the fjords.



About Norwegian fjord cruises

When it comes to cruise holidays, there are few destinations that can compare to Norway’s famous fjords. Spectacular towering snow-capped mountains rise majestically above the rocky inlets, while cascading waterfalls tumble into churning pools of white water. Magnificent views surround charming towns nestled at the foot of the mountains, creating a unique and stunningly spectacular destination.

The city of Bergen is the second largest in Norway and is known as a leader in the areas of marine research and aquaculture. It is also home to one of Norway’s largest shopping centres, Lagunen Storsenter, a destination that attracts over 5 million visitors annually. Art and music round out this charming town, making it not to be missed stopover on your Norwegian fjord cruise.

Alesund is famous for its art-nouveau style and interesting architecture and museums. Beautiful old-world buildings line the streets of this maritime town. Visitors will be enthralled by the beautiful architecture and variety of history and culture and be charmed by the local culture.

Stavanger is known for its rugged peaks and stunning vistas. Hiking the mountain trails or strolling along the beaches, the history of the land seeps into the psyche while visiting Stavanger. Museums, shopping, attractions and art galleries combine to celebrate the spirit of human tenacity in this 3,000 year old town, capturing a sense of eternity.

At the very heart of Norwegian fjord country is a hidden paradise. Flam is the jewel in the Norwegian crown, featuring spectacular natural beauty.

The three diamonds on the blue background of the Orsta coat of arms represent the mountains reflecting in the waters of the fjord, accurately representing the stunning beauty of this premier destination. With over 60 shops, cafes and restaurants, all offering outdoor seating, this friendly, open town offers a sense of camaraderie with its people and nature. The magnificent views and beautiful marina should not be missed.

The official seal of Kristiansand is one of the oldest in all of Norway. The crown indicates that the king founded the town. Kristiansand is honoured by more than the nod of royal beginnings; it is also one of the sunniest areas in the entire country. Ski trails and walking paths meander through the landscape, making this an idea destination for outdoor enthusiasts. The Kilden Performing Arts Centre is a new modern attraction that rounds out the Kristiansand experience.

Street festivals take place throughout the year, making Kristiansand one of the most welcoming and interesting destinations on any Norwegian fjord cruise. No matter which of the fjords you visit, you will rarely find more spectacular views or rugged, beautiful country to explore than while cruising Norway, which is why Adore cruises are able to recommend such holidays to discerning travellers and experiencing amazing Norwegian Fjord Cruises.
