Sails from Dover

Awe-inspiring Norwegian Fjords

Awe-inspiring landscapes and several of Norway’s most beautiful ports await you on this nine-night springtime exploration of the fjord land. During the cruise, there are chances to see gorgeous countryside in seasonal bloom and spectacular natural wonders from the comfort of your ship. Additionally during time ashore you can uncover a wealth of highlights too.

Bergen

First, as you head for Norway from Dover you’ll have time to settle in and relax on board Boudicca. There’s time to anticipate the scenic and cultural delights to come in Bergen – your first port of call – and beyond. Also, in Bergen you could sample Klippfisk at the famous fish market; explore the iconic UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf; and visit museums such as the Troldhaugen. The views from atop Mount Fløyen, reached via the funicular railway, are not-to-be-missed.

Flåm

Next, from Flåm you have an opportunity to embark on a magical railway journey too. A ride on the Flåmsbana line presents with unspoilt scenery dominated by magnificent mountains and cascading waterfalls. Alternatively, there are breathtaking views of fjord Sognefjord on offer from the Stegastein Lookout, situated over 2000 feet above the fjord’s glassy waters. Another highlight, following your stop at Flåm is an unforgettable scenic cruising of the incredible Nærøyfjord. Which is one of National Geographic’s top two Natural World Heritage Sites. Furthermore, be sure to experience the natural beauty of this twisting, narrow waterway from your ship’s open decks.

Ålesund & Olden

At Ålesund an appealing collection of art-nouveau architecture is yours to discover if you choose to stroll the pretty pedestrianised streets. However, the city views on offer from Mount Aksla may tempt you into taking the 418-step hike to the mountain’s peak. Especially recommended here is a ride on the Rauma Railway, which takes in the Romsdalen Valley and fabled Troll Mountains.

Olden is your gateway to a collection of the fjordland’s most spellbinding natural treasures. Perhaps you’ll choose to see the Briksdal Glacier in all its glory on a trek into the Briksdalen Valley. Alternatively, take a boat tour of the Lovatnet Lake, surrounded by soaring mountains and glistening glacier tongues. Scenic cruising of Nord fjord, Mauranger fjord and Hardanger fjord will captivate and inspire as you. Also, as you sail to Eid fjord; have your camera to hand to capture impressive sights such as the Fureberg Waterfall. From Eidfjord, the Vøringsfossen – one of Norway’s most famous waterfalls – and the Hardangervidda Nature Centre are within reach on tours. Finally, concluding your trip is a stop at Stavanger, a former European Capital of Culture, ensuring a rewarding end to your time in Norway.

Cruise Itinerary

Monday 25th May 2020

Dover, United Kingdom

Home of the famous White Cliffs, Dover is one of England’s most iconic towns.

Read more

Located on the south-east coast of England just 21 miles across the English Channel from France, Dover – home of the world’s busiest passenger port – is the first sight for many visitors arriving from around the world.

This historic town is much more than a gateway to Britain, and offers much to discover, including the 12th century Dover Castle – which overlooks the pretty harbour and houses the extensive Secret Wartime Tunnels – Archcliffe Fort, and the Western Heights, where a series of coastal defences and unspoilt nature reserves await exploration.

Tuesday 26th May 2020

At Sea

Take a day to familiarise yourself and settle in aboard the Boudicca.

Wednesday 27th May 2020

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.

Read more

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.

Thursday 28th May 2020

Flåm, Aurlandsfjord, 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.

Read more

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.

Friday 29th May 2020

Hellesylt, Storfjord, Norway

Regarded as one of the most beautiful Norwegian Fjord locations, the settlement of Hellesylt is one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations.

Read more

Nestled in the incredible scenery of the UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord, the tiny, old Viking port of Hellesylt begs to be explored, with numerous easy-to-walk trails that offer incredible views of the surrounding natural wonders.

Hellesylt Waterfall is one of the many highlights, as are the Kjellstaddalen and Moldskreddalen valleys. The waterfall – one of the most photographed subjects in the region – sits between two bridges in the village: the Høge Bridge (built 1907) and Hellesylt Bridge (built 1902). The mass of water cascading down the polished granite stones is an awesome sight.

Saturday 30th May 2020

Olden, Nordfjord, Norway

At its eastern end, the magnificent Nordfjord divides into three arms beneath the glaciers of the Jostedalsbreen, and Olden sits at the beginning of the southernmost of these arms. A charming village, Olden is among green meadows which are ablaze with colourful flowers throughout the summer, and through which babbling brooks meander between pretty houses.

Read more

In the centre of the village is the Old Church, built in 1759 on the site of a 14th century stave church: the timber was used for the pew doors and doorposts. Near the church is the Singerheimen, the former home of William Singer the millionaire founder of the sewing-machine company. He was a gifted amateur artist, and some of his paintings of the Olden area can be seen in his workshop.

The beautiful Oldedalen Valley extends for 12 miles behind Olden and is an absolute joy to explore. On an adventure into the valley you can marvel at huge, near-vertical cliffs, a string of spectacular waterfalls, and sparkling glaciers, such as the astonishing Briksdal.

Sunday 31st May 2020

Eidfjord, Hardangerfjord, Norway

The picturesque village of Eidfjord set within the breath-taking Hardangerfjord, is a gateway to some of the region’s most spectacular natural features. Eidfjord is possibly the most beautiful place in the Norwegian fjords. Located beneath a back-drop of soaring, snow-peaked mountains, engraved with rivers and waterfalls, Eidfjord simply cries out to be photographed. The village’s tranquil feel extends to the lush fields that run for miles, meandering through clusters of wood-slat homes in ice-cream hues.

Read more

Two quaint churches, one dated back to 1309, are both worth exploring, while the cute Troll Train offers a 50-minute guided tour of this stunning region. From the train you can experience Eidfjord’s exquisite scenery and Hæreid, the largest Viking burial site from the Iron Age.

Hiking is very popular in the area, and for those keen sports enthusiasts, kayaking down the dramatic, mountain-flanked fjords is a must-do. Alternatively, visitors can head for the amazing Hardangervidda Nature Centre or the infamous Voringfossen Waterfall, a tumbling natural beauty set deep in the mountains of Måbødalen Valley.

Monday 1st June 2020

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.

Read more

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.

Ship Information

Up to 880 people can enjoy a cruise on board Boudicca – not the thousands to be found on most ships these days – so there’s plenty of space for everyone. Plus, Boudicca is small enough to reach shores that many rival cruise ships simply cannot access, so guests on board can get closer to the sights that they want to see.

Onboard, indulge yourself at the Tintagel and Four Seasons Restaurants. Lounge around on the Lounge Deck, or in one of our two Jacuzzis. Or splash around in one of the three pools. And when the sun’s shining, enjoy the tasty poolside buffet.

You’ll have days and nights to remember on board Boudicca.
