If a cruise that showcases the stunning beauty of nature is what you desire, then look no further than a cruise to the sumptuous Norwegian Fjords. Ideal for all ages, cruises to this sensational European splendor are unparalleled in terms of amazing scenery and beautiful landscapes. Viewing the Norwegian Fjords is an unforgettable experience that is sure to take your breath away, and there is no better way to take in the sumptuous scenery than onboard a luxury ship.

The Best time to take a Fjords cruise would be during the summer months of July and August as this is when the climate is at its hottest for the region. These months are also ideal for families as children are generally off school. Cruise lines take this into consideration, offering excellent summer programs for kids. Choosing which cruise line to travel with depends on what type of voyage you want. We would recommend a smaller ship, with Hurtigruten’s Ms Vesteralen a very popular choice, providing a more tight-knit, traditional feel.
