Itinerary

Description

From the rail of Marco Polo enjoy the kaleidoscope of awe-inspiring fjordland scenery where green hills, cascading waterfalls and majestic mountains are truly spectacular. Visits to picturesque towns and idyllic fjord villages promise a host of new and exciting experiences. And with its colourful Hanseatic waterfront and spectacular Mount Fløyen funicular, Bergen is the perfect end to this week long cruise.

Cruise Itinerary

Day 1 – Home pickup & embarkation in Newcastle
A uniformed chauffeur will collect you from home for your comfortable journey in a top specification car so you can begin your holiday in style. On arrival at Newcastle Port, we board the Marco Polo and begin our journey, taking time to relax in our cabins or on deck and enjoying the use of the ship’s range of leisure facilities.

Day 2 – Aberdeen, Scotland
We arrive in Aberdeen, Scotland’s third city. This thriving and cosmopolitan port city is famous for its stunning granite buildings and monuments and blends historic attractions with a long sandy coastline. The city also has two Old Towns: Old Aberdeen with its cobbled streets and 15th-century fortified cathedral and Footdee, a quirky fishing quarter at the water’s edge with squares of tiny cottages.

Day 3 – At Sea / Day 4 – Cruising Nordfjord & Olden, Norway
After a day at leisure on the ship, we cruise the beautiful Nordfjord, the sixth longest fjord in Norway, situated between the largest mainland glacier in Europe and Norway’s wildest coast at the western cape. The southernmost of the three short branches at the inner end of Nordfjord terminates in Olden. The charming village sits amongst tidy, well-kept farms on gently sloping, fertile hillsides, which then rise steeply into thickly wooded and rugged peaks. From the village the beautiful Oldendalen Valley runs between towering mountains to the edge of the mighty Jostedalsbreen Glacier. Briksdal Glacier is one of the more accessible arms of the Jostedalsbreen. The creeping pitted tentacle of ice features in optional excursions from Olden together with glorious waterfalls, glacier fed rivers and wonderful mountain lakes.


Day 5 – Cruising Sognefjord & Flåm, Norway
We cruise along the Sognefjord, the largest fjord in Norway. With steep mountain slopes meeting the water’s shores, we take in the impressive vistas before arriving in Flåm. Surrounded by towering mountains the tiny village of Flåm, with some 500 inhabitants, nestles at the head of Aurlandsfjord, the innermost arm of the mighty Sognefjord. Its popularity as a tourist destination began in the late 19th century with the arrival of steamships carrying English and German passengers including Europe’s royals attracted by the salmon fishing in the Flåm River. Today’s visitors are drawn to Flåm for a chance to ride on one of the world’s steepest and most spectacular railways. A masterpiece of engineering, Flåm Railway twists and turns through the steep-sided Flåm Valley amidst some of Norway’s most breathtaking mountain scenery.

Day 6 – Bergen, Norway
Known as the ‘Gateway to the Fjords’, Bergen is Norway’s second largest city. Yet with a population of less than a quarter of a million, it has the feel of a small town. It is beautifully sited against a backdrop of seven mountains and the funicular ride to the summit of Mount Fløien affords wonderful panoramic views of Bergen and Norway’s attractive coastline. Overlooking the harbour the colourful Bryggen wharf is the face of Bergen. The characteristic wooden gabled buildings were once the home and offices of Hanseatic merchants but today house shops selling crafts and traditional souvenirs.

Day 7 – At Sea / Day 8 – Disembarkation in Newcastle
After a day at sea, we arrive back in Newcastle where we disembark and are met by our chauffeur for the journey home – a luxurious and stress-free way to end your holiday.
