SUMMER ON THE NORWEGIAN COAST

This very special summertime cruise, which includes a call at Dutch maritime gem Rotterdam, will showcase western Norway at its glorious best. Cruise deep into Norway’s pristine interior, along exquisite Hardangerfjord and majestic Nordfjord, with stops at Eidfjord, Olden and colourful Bergen.

Join Columbus as she sets sail from Tilbury across the Channel to Rotterdam, with its pretty streets and squares, and then north and along Hardangerfjord to Eidfjord, which is nestled in a breathtaking location, where dense forests cling to towering mountain slopes high above crystal-clear waters. The next port of call is the equally spectacular Olden, located deep in the Nordfjord. This memorable cruise is completed by an enjoyable stop at Bergen, unofficial capital of the fjords, with its old town lined with wooden buildings.

    The Dutch maritime city of Rotterdam is Columbus's first stop. Step ashore to see the stunning architecture of the Erasmus Bridge and the remarkable inverted 'U' of the Markthal food market.

    Hardangerfjord stretches over 100 kilometres into the Norwegian interior, and this morning Magellan heads into its stunning landscape of sheer, forested mountainsides and still waters.
