Here you call at Kristiansand, one of Norway's premier holiday destinations, and where you can explore its lovely old town of Posebyen. As you cruise north, note the land becoming increasingly rugged until you reach Bergen, which marks the start of Norway's fjords. To appreciate the port's coastal setting further, catch the cable car up to the summit of Mount Ulrikken. Continue to Ålesund which stands at the entrance to the Geirangerfjord and is famed for its splendid art nouveau architecture. Cruise back south, pausing at Haugesund in the region the Vikings chose as their royal seat. On board there will be insightful lecturers for those fascinated by the powerful forces of nature that created Norway's stunning landscapes.
