With a wide variety of different cruise lines to choose from, offering varying itineraries, and of course the famous Norwegian hospitality, you can be sure that you will enjoy great food and entertainment, along with some of the most beautiful nature that the country has to offer.

You will stop at interesting ports of call, like the beautiful coastal town of Bergen in southern Norway, taking in local fishing villages like, Floro, and, Alesund and other points of interest on the way, and can travel as far north (across the Arctic circle) as, Kirkenes, near the Russian border, where you can experience the famous, midnight sun, and if you're lucky enough, catch the Northern lights.
