Norwegian Fjords in Spring
Board Magellan in London Tilbury as spring turns to summer and she begins a relaxing one-week cruise to Norway. After a day spent strolling the cobbled streets, squares and harbourside of Rotterdam, you'll head north to two of Norway’s most spectacular fjords. Follow the twists and turns of Hardangerfjord to the pretty waterside town of Eidfjord, and cruise up Sognefjord, past dense forests, soaring mountains and hidden coves, to Flam. Join optional shore excursions to discover hidden waterfalls or travel through the towering scenery on the Flamsbana mountain train, then complete your cruise with a day exploring Norway's second city, Bergen – once a great centre of Scandinavian trade and the unofficial capital of the fjords.
