Fjord Cruises

A truly beautiful way to explore Norway’s pristine nature and unforgettable bays is by travelling with a cruise liner. Today fjord cruises are legitimately considered one of the most popular attractions of Norway allowing the tourists to submerge into mysterious and luring world of this country and feel as true explorers and discoverers on board of a ship. The routes may vary and often include apart from the fjords themselves stops at Oslo, Norwegian capital, as well as Bergen and Kirkeness.

Fjord Cruises

The most common cruises around Norwegian fjords last in average 7-8 days and nights. Roughly half of that time is spent on land, during excursions and trips.

In the same time, you can choose fjord cruises that include Sweden, Germany, Denmark and Poland. Such cruises last approximately for two weeks. The routes start in Germany, Denmark and Russia. The flight tickets to the starting point are not included in the cruise price.

The price of cruises around Norwegian fjords on large liners starts from 750-800 EUR per person for a summer tour with an accommodation in a small internal cabin. The higher the class (external cabins with a window, a balcony, or suits) the higher will be the price. Usually all cabins are equipped with furniture, a TV-set, an air conditioner, a telephone, a mini-bar, and a bathroom. The difference is in size and a possibility to enjoy sea landscapes through the window or even a balcony, from a comfortable deck chair. Internal cabins do not have windows or balconies; however, they are the cheapest.

Cruise liners offer swimming pools, spa-centers and gyms for their guests. Tourists can go to casinos, cinema theaters, discos, Internet cafés or even duty-free boutiques onboard. They can attend a variety of restaurants and cafes. Take into account that visa, harbor dues, medical insurance as well as drinks are not included into the cruise price.


Hurtigruten is a daily passenger and freight shipping service along Norway's western and northern coast between Bergen and Kirkenes. Hurtigruten ships sail almost the entire length of the country, covering some 2,500 miles (4,000 km), and completing the round-trip journey in 12 days.

Departures are daily, and the vessels make frequent stops along the coast. The ships can accommodate cars, making it easy to combine the cruise with a holiday in different places ashore. 

Eleven regular ships are on the line. Each liner has a distinct style and character and no two journeys will ever be the same. Some ships were produced in 1960-80s and offer a unique retro atmosphere. However, 80 per cent of the fleet consists of quite modern vessels.
