Springtime Norwegian Fjords in Five Nights

Sail from Newcastle

FREE On Board Spend

Spend the spring Bank Holiday weekend admiring Norway’s remarkable landscapes. In just five nights, Borealis will take you on a journey along picturesque waterways to two wonderfully contrasting destinations. In the Norse city of Bergen, named after the surrounding mountains, there’s the chance to hike with a local atop Mount Fløyen, affording views of the city and fjordland. Flåm presents the opportunity to take a boat tour along the winding UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjord or to travel up high into the mountains aboard the Flåm Railway.

Day 3
Vik
Make no bones about it, this is Fjordland at its finest. Named by the National Geographic Traveler magazine as "the world's most iconic destination", legend has it that Vikings and Trolls battled on these very waters and the pretty stave churches – of which Vik has two – are built on sacred Norse land. Vik is a place that could have been written by Tolkein; a mysterious land where mists roll off the mountains, the air is crisp and the silent, glassy Fjords are definitely the ruler of the kingdom. Shrouded in enchantment, the landscape of Vik is steeped in Viking heritage, Scandinavian myth and human enchantment.
