Day 2 CRUISING LYSEFJORD, NORWAY
The Lysefjord is a stunning example of the Norwegian fjords' spectacular natural beauty. Carved into the landscape by glacier movement in the Ice Age approximately 10,000 years ago, Lysefjord is lined by magnificent mountains and dramatic cliff faces – some soaring over 1,000 metres high into the unpolluted skies above.
Day 3 CRUISING KARMSUND, NORWAY
Karmsund, a narrow waterway separating Karmoey Island from Haugesund, is only navigable by smaller ships such as those in the Fred. Olsen fleet.
So, while guests on board larger cruise ships have to spend more time out in the open sea to pass by Karmoey, on a Fred. Olsen cruise to this beautiful region you can enjoy memorable scenic cruising through Karmsund.

See the breathtaking Haugesund in Norway
Day 3 CRUISING ÅKRAFJORD & LANGFOSS WATERFALL, NORWAY

Day 4 EIDFJORD, 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 and 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 begs for exploration and presents some of the fjordland's greatest photo opportunities 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.
Day 4 CRUISE HARDANGERFJORD, NORWAY
Known as the 'Queen of the Fjords', Hardangerfjord is situated centrally in the heart of Western Norway. The best way to experience this incredible fjord is to sail along its 197-kilometre-long stretch of still, azure water, enjoying the spellbinding scenery, towering mountains, waterfalls and idyllic orchards.
Day 4 CRUISING MAURANGERFJORD & FUREBERGFOSSEN, NORWAY
The Norwegian Fjords are among some of the most beautiful and picturesque locations on earth, and Maurangerfjord is no exception. Branching off of the stunning Hardangerfjord, Maurangerfjord stretches into Nordrepollen and Austrepollen and is home to the pretty Furebergfossen Waterfall. A cruise along this vast natural wonder offers fabulous photo opportunities and out-of-this-world sights.
Day 5 OLDEN, 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.
Day 5 CRUISING NORDFJORD, NORWAY
The sixth longest Norwegian fjord, and one of the most picturesque, beautiful Nordfjord stretches from mainland Norway's western-most point – overlooking Stadhavet, Sunnmørsalpene and Ålfotbreen – to the magnificent Jostedalsbreen, Europe's largest inland glacier.
Day 6 ÅLESUND, NORWAY
Ålesund is Norway’s popular, art-nouveau epic of towers and turrets, ornaments and balconies, steeples and spires. The city’s delightful pedestrianised streets, offer a diverse mix of art galleries, shops and lively cafés, and lead to the 418 steps that climb Mount Aksla. The Fjellstua restaurant and café at the summit is the perfect place to sit and soak up panoramic views of this attractive city, the archipelago, and the Sunnmore Alps.
Day 6 CRUISING HJØRUNDFJORD, NORWAY
Often by-passed by ships sailing through Storsfjorden en route to Geirangerfjord and Hellesylt, the breathtaking scenery of Hjørundfjord – a 35 Kilometre-long branch of Storsfjorden – is rarely seen on Norwegian fjords cruises aboard larger vessels.
However with Fred. Olsen, on board our smaller-sized ships, you can divert into this incredible waterway to marvel at the astonishing, snow-capped peaks of the Sunnmøre Alps and steep green hills which frame the fjord’s glass-like waters – an unforgettable scenic cruising experience.
