If you are more interested in exploring natural wonders of the world, rather than historical sites, then the Norwegian Fjords should be on your bucket list!

This is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, with thousands of fjords to discover, particularly in the Western part of Norway. The most popular, and probably the easiest way to get here is on a cruise. But with a little planning, a trip by rail to stay in one of the traditional villages is possible.

Take a Cruise Package

The cruise option allows you to see the full majesty of the fjords, and you can sail directly from the UK, no flying is necessary. Having arrived at each of the ports of call, there are numerous excursions you can book to truly get to know the area.

The pretty fishing harbour of Alesund is worth a visit, and from here you can take a kayak, for an up-close view of the glaciers.

Stavanger is the place to be if you want to walk in the footsteps of Vikings!

The Fjords by Rail or Car

If a scenic rail journey appeals to you, then, you can travel from London on the Eurostar. Most itineraries will take in the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bergen, with its lovely wooden buildings.

The Flam Railway reaches a height of 1222 metres above sea level. If you are brave enough to take on the steep inclines and narrow roads, you can hire a car, and explore at your own pace. Glacier walks are possible but check for seasonal weather variations.

There are too many fjords to name them all, but you shouldn’t miss The Sognefjord, the country’s longest and deepest. With a photo opportunity around every corner, this is a bucket list trip to Norway you will always remember!
