Norwegian Fjords Itinerary
Southampton. Stavanger. Flaam. Aurlandsfjord. Sognefjord. Olden. Innvikfjorden. Nordfjord. Bergen. Southampton
Join Britannia on a journey of beautiful fjords, ancient glaciers and colourful Norse mythology on this Norwegian Fjords sailing.
Sailing from Southampton you’ll have plenty of time to settle into the pleasures of Britannia before arriving at your first port, Stavanger – the ‘Cradle of the Vikings’. This historic town boasts a charming old town and the imposing Three Swords monument. And as the gateway to Norway’s fjordland, this is a fitting place to start your journey to the spectacular fjords.
The tiny village of Flaam is tucked away in the innermost part of Sognefjord. Here you’ll find the extraordinary Flaam Railway, which rises more than 865 metres above sea level, in just 12 miles. The views are just as dramatic as the journey.
Glide through Aurlandsfjord’s glass-like waters into Sognefjord, the longest navigable fjord in the world. Beautiful snow-capped mountains, cascading waterfalls, and lush forests will fight for your attention.
The peaceful village of Olden has the perfect fjordland setting – nestled at the end of the beautiful Nordfjord. From here you can also explore the vast, million-year-old Briksdal Glacier. As you depart Olden you’ll cruise the winding inlet of Innvikfjorden to the magnificent Nordfjord, through its dramatic cliffs and unbelievable waterfalls.
Your final port is picturesque Bergen. Full of historic sites, don’t miss Bryggen – a collection of wooden harbour-front buildings. And for stunning views over the town and region, take the funicular to the top of Mount Fløien. Then enjoy a day on board as you sail back to Southampton.
