Norway could have been designed for cruise liners, with its combination of a stunning coastline and friendly cities.
There are few more beautiful sights in the world than the Norwegian fjords and because the water is so deep, even the most luxurious of cruise ships is able to sail into them and give passengers a close up view of the mountains and forests.
Your Norway cruise will also take you to some charming old-fashioned towns and cities, ensuring you experience the perfect blend of natural and manmade attractions during your holiday.
Fjords, glaciers and waterfalls on a Norway cruise
It is difficult to describe just how beautiful the Norwegian coast and countryside are, but anyone who has been lucky enough to see it close up will tell you that you will not experience scenery like it anywhere else in the world.
A Norway cruise will take you right into the heart of the fjords and you will have plenty of opportunity to explore the mountains that surround them.
Taking a tour of the local area will enable you to visit the spectacular waterfalls and glaciers, as well as giving you some of the finest mountain views in the world.
Despite the imposing terrain, people do live in the mountains and you will visit some beautiful rural villages during your travels.
Visit friendly cities on a Norway cruise
Wherever your cruise liner stops in Norway, you will find the locals are friendly and the cities have a relaxed atmosphere.
Bergen is the second largest city in the country, but still manages to retain the charm of a small town, thanks to its cobbled streets and traditional Scandinavian houses and shops.
Molde and Trondheim share similar qualities and you will find the welcome is equally warm if you head to the north of Norway on a North Cape cruise stopping at Honningsvag and Tromso.
