Today, its buildings feature dreamy turrets and ornate carvings of dragons and mythical figures. Nature has played its part too, as calm waters and distant snow-capped peaks add to the charm.

Olden, Norway

When you reluctantly depart from this peaceful village of the picturesque Nordfjord, you'll no doubt have some breathtaking and unforgettable scenes etched into your memory, and your camera roll too.

A sense of wonderment awaits as you sail Innvikfjorden, just one highlight of Norway’s beautiful network of fjords. The villages and farmsteads along its coastline really put things into perspective.
Enjoy the placid waters, the sheer scale of the stunning scenery and features created by nature’s power over the millennia, and appreciate humans’ wish to live among its beauty and resources.

Day 6

Nordfjord, Norway

Sailing offers by the far the best way to appreciate the scale and majesty of this ancient region, where the palette of blues, greys, and greens are occasionally punctuated by an ambitious hiker, or a wild pony grazing at the Fjord’s edge. Selected branches of the Nordfjord even resemble a tropical paradise, with near-transparent waters fringing beaches composed entirely of pure white sand.

Whether you choose to admire these passing views while strolling your ship’s deck or tucked under a blanket in the privacy of your stateroom’s balcony, your sail-by of the Nordfjord is guaranteed to deliver some of the most memorable scenery you’ll experience on your Norway cruise.

A journey that delivers no end of outstanding views, a cruise-by of Nordfjord is your chance to immerse yourself in the mesmerising natural scenery that’s a signature of sailing Norway’s Fjords.

In this respect your cruise-by of Nordfjord will not disappoint. Norway’s sixth largest Fjord is home to Europe’s biggest mainland glacier, as well as the continent’s deepest lake.

These accolades, while impressive, are just the pinnacle of what makes sailing in this part of Norway so special. Nordfjord has been cultivated by the elements over centuries and the result is a rugged yet beautiful landscape that’s remained unspoilt through the passage of time.

Day 7

Flaam, Norway

This one is for the true train lovers. From tiny Flaam there is a renowned and captivating 13-mile stretch of railway that slowly winds and climbs alongside the grand glacial splendour of Sognefjord.

The stunning Aurlandsfjord is one of the most picturesque fjords in the world. It is part of the World Heritage region surrounding the Nærøyfjord and the world’s second-longest fjord, the Sognefjord.
The fjord, in Aurland, is 10 miles long and flanked by beautiful snow-topped mountains which stretch from Flåm to Mount Beitelen at the entrance to Nærøyfjord. It is a sight to behold.

Day 7

Sognefjord, Norway (Cruise-by)

The pin drop calm that inhabits this otherworldly realm is yet another sensory experience to savour, perfect for appreciating from your stateroom balcony or in the quiet comfort of your ship’s expansive decks.

With sights that only sailing can provide, a cruise-by of this magnificent Norwegian treasure is sure to inspire lasting holiday memories of your time sailing the Fjords on board your Cunard Queen.

This ‘King of the Fjords’ is the largest in Norway, and home to some of the region’s most dramatic and unspoilt scenery.

Encompassing a distance of 127 miles (205 kilometres), sixty miles of which is over 1000 metres (3,300 ft) deep, this gargantuan body of water plays host to basins, sounds, valleys, and lowlands, enveloped by perfectly vertical cliffs.

Your cruise-by of the Sognefjord offers a perfect way to experience the majesty and grandeur of this nature-sculpted land.
