As Balmoral deviates away from direct, well-travelled routes and diverts into the Norwegian fjordland along remarkable waterways, you’ll get to experience the beauty of the region’s summertime splendours to the full. From your ship’s decks, see Lysefjord’s canyon of steep, rugged mountains and the verdant, forested mountains and valleys of Maurangerfjord, Hardangerfjord, Sognefjord and Lustrafjord. Watch the tumbling waters of Furebergfossen and Langfossen too, and feel the mist from the falls on your skin; and marvel at Hornelen – North Europe’s tallest sea cliff – during your late evening glide along Nordfjord.

A visit to Bergen provides a chance to discover the city’s many highlights, from UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf to the Troldhaugen Museum. Perhaps join a local for a hike to see Bergen through native eyes and enjoy the view from atop Mount Floyen too. Go fjord kayaking on Hardangerfjord’s glassy waters, or tour to Vøringsfossen, from Eidfjord; and uncover the beauty of Skjolden, nestled deep within Lustrafjord. At Olden, you could join a tour to Briksdal Glacier and witness this natural wonder in all its glory; while a ride on the Rauma Railway from Andalsnes takes you for an up-close look at mountainous landscapes, and to explore the ‘path of the trolls’ at Trollveggan and Trollstigen.

    Bergen

    Compact and friendly, Bergen was once a great trading city within the Hanseatic League and is the birthplace of composer Edvard Grieg. It remains Norway's second city and, despite being sheltered from the sea by its seven hills and outlying islands, is unashamedly nautical in outlook. Visit the vibrant harbour and fish market, stroll past the wooden warehouses of Bryggen (the old town) and take the Fløibanen funicular to the summit of Mount Fløyen.

    Eidfjord

    A village set on the shore of the Eid Fjord, with a backdrop of beautiful countryside. The famous Vøringsfossen waterfall, one of the highest single-drop waterfalls in Norway, is definitely worth a visit.

    Olden

    Today you’ll call at Olden, spectacularly located on the Nordfjord. This charming waterside town is the starting point for excursions through the scenic countryside to the famous Briksdal Glacier. Huge though it is, Briksdal's immense cliff of ice is actually just one of the 50 arms of the Jostedalsbreen Glacier, which broods over the entire eastern reach of Nordfjord.

Further Information

  • Cruise descriptions include optional, chargeable experiences that may be enjoyed independently and/or with optional Fred. Olsen Shore Tours. 

    *Premium Traditional Afternoon Tea not included.

    Upgrade to All Inclusive Drinks Package is available as a chargeable optional extra and can be added to your booking up to six days prior to your cruise departing.

  • Rules may have changed since you last travelled to European Union countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The following are useful guidelines which will help you prepare for your next adventure. Note that these new rules do NOT apply when travelling within the United Kingdom or to the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland. You do require government issued ID when travelling by air though.

    Passport

    Your passport must meet two requirements to travel to an EU country and to Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. It must be:

    • Less than 10 years old on the day you return home – please check the "date of issue"
    • Valid for at least 3 months after the day you return home – please check the "expiry date"

    These rules do not apply to travel to Ireland where you can continue to use your passport as long as it’s valid for the length of your stay.

    Visa

    If you’re a tourist, you do not need a visa for short trips to most EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. You’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days in any rolling 180-day period. Different rules will apply to Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania; if you visit these countries, visits to other EU countries will not count towards the 90-day total. Travel to Ireland will not change and stays there will not count towards the 90-day total.

    European Travel Information & Authorisation System (ETIAS)

    Towards the end of 2022, it is likely that non EU citizens will be required to apply online for an authorisation to visit most European countries. The current details suggest there will be a charge of €7 per person and the authorisation will be valid for all trips made to the EU in a three year period from issue. We will advise you of confirmed details prior to your tour’s departure.

    Border Control

    At border control, you may need to show proof of your return journey - your travel documentation issued by us will be sufficient for this. You will also need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens if manual checks are required.

    Healthcare Cover

    You should always get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad which covers pre-existing conditions. You should understand the terms and conditions of your travel insurance and be happy with its cover for healthcare and travel disruption. Newmarket sell a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Ask our travel consultants for more information.

    You should also apply for a UK Global Heath Insurance Card (GHIC) which lets you get urgent state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes for free. Note GHIC is only valid in EU countries and not in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.

    Mobile Roaming

    Roaming charges are applied by some UK providers when visiting the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. Prior to travel, please do check with your phone operator for the most up to date information.
