Discover a land untouched by time and shrouded in folklore. Where icy waterfalls spiral down skyscraper cliffs and a smattering of fishing villages provide the only signs of civilisation. From week-long round trips to 12-night escapes, a Norwegian voyage on Cunard unlocks the mystery of Norway’s spellbinding Fjords, enhancing every second you spend in this majestic wilderness. Spend 7, 11 or 12 nights exploring Norway’s Fjords when you voyage from Southampton or Hamburg. Journey deep into saltwater inlets on your ship to witness a side of Norway only accessible by water.
Cruises to the Norwegian Fjords and the Northern Lights.
There’s no light show on earth that outshines the Northern Lights. One of nature’s most beguiling phenomena, a Norway Fjords cruise offers the possibility of glimpsing this rare natural wonder. A Norwegian Fjords cruise on a Cunard Queen may also take you above the Arctic Circle, revealing the unique towns and cities that inhabit this northernmost part of the Scandinavian Peninsula.
At Tromsø, you’re nearly 250 miles inside the Arctic Circle. Clues to your location are everywhere; the bars are fully stocked with Arctic Beer and the Arctic Cathedral resembles a geometric glacier. Tromsø features the Polaria Arctic Centre, where the exhibits recreate a polar bear den and an Arctic snowstorm. You might experience them for real from the cable cars that climb Mount Storsteinen.
You have Kaiser Wilhelm II to thank for this city’s wonder. He rebuilt his beloved gateway in Art Nouveau style after it was destroyed by fire in 1904. Lose your heart in this gem of the Nordic coast. Today, its buildings feature dreamy turrets and ornate carvings of dragons and mythical figures. Nature has played its part too, as calm waters and distant snow-capped peaks add to the charm.
Lying just 137 miles inside the Arctic Circle, Narvik may be one of the world’s most northerly towns, but the North Atlantic currents and the mountains that shelter the town make it surprisingly mild. From late May until late July, the Midnight Sun often sets the landscapes aglow with intense yellows and fiery red-orange hues. One of the best spots to admire its effect on the majestic landscapes is to whisk up Narvikfjellen by cable car for sublime views over the city and the surrounding fjords.
Norway's Stavanger is not only blessed with compelling history, but also a natural beauty. From the ancient port, the city radiates across a network of islands which are connected by graceful bridges. Stavanger's cathedral and medieval lanes blend beautifully with the city and countryside. For a journey back in time, take a tour of Utstein Cloister, a beautifully preserved Augustin Monastery.
