Scenic Cruising Nordfjord

Cruise Norway’s sixth-longest fjord, which arises from the mighty Jostedalsbreen Glacier, Europe’s largest, high in the mountains and empties into the sea  at Husevågøy island south of the Stadlandet Peninsula. The fjord is 66 miles/106 km long, with six main branches. It is surrounded by snow-capped peaks, some of which are capable of offering year-round skiing on their highest slopes. There are a number of fishing communities along the fjord which date from pre-Viking days, including Stryn, Gloppen, Eid, Utvik, Olden and Loen. Enjoy the passing panorama of shining water, steep mountainsides and tiny villages glowing in the endless sun of Norway’s summer.
