Admire the majestic fjords on this springtime cruise, calling at Bergen and Stavanger, with plenty of scenic cruising in between. There will be an on-board speaker giving fascinating talks on the natural history and culture of the fjords, and some traditional Norwegian folk dance entertainment, as well as Norwegian cookery demonstrations and tastings.

Cruise from Dover along to the beautiful Sognesfjord to Bergen where the funicular ride provides panoramic views from the top of Mt Floyen. The small village of Rosendal is home to Baroniet Rosendal, a small manor whose gardens are filled with colourful flower, and is just 6 miles from the dramatic Folgefonna National Park.

Explore Stavanger's cobbled streets and clapboard residential buildings, where an optional visit to a typical Norwegian home reveals more about local life, culture and traditions.
