Just cruisin'

You won't find a more relaxing way to see and experience coastal Norway than onboard a cruise ship. It's a hotel room on the move, giving you all the comforts of home, while at the same time letting you take in the joys of Norway's long coastline.

A moving base like this will save you from the hustle and bustle of having to unpack and repack your luggage for every destination you reach, and you will have restaurants, bars, and amusements within reach at all times.

Don't expect an endless party though. Most people cruising coastal Norway are looking for calm and relaxation, spectacular scenery and beautiful landscapes, and perhaps a taste of some local specialties along the way.

Norway has one of the longest coastlines in the world, and more fjords than any other place on the planet. In fact, the very word "fjord" is Norwegian in origin.

Other natural splendours you might want to experience from the comforts of a cruise ship are the northern lights and the midnight sun, and if you're lucky, you might also spot eagles soaring above or whales and seals playing in the deep fjords.

Of course, there will be time for short excursions while your ship is in port, depending on its sailing plan. Though you might not have time to venture far inland, most ships make sure to give its guests ample time to experience the most interesting cities and towns along the coast. Just make sure you're not so mesmerized you forget to return to the ship in time to sail on.

Unless you travel with Hurtigruten - the coastal steamer trafficking the coast from Bergen and points north - in which case you can hop on and hop off as you like. Maybe you'll want to spend a few extra days someplace along the way? Well, with Hurtigruten, you can.

Cruise ships depart for Norway from many different ports in Europe, making it easy and convenient to get here with minimum hassle and maximum comfort. Of course, you can also choose to fly directly to Norway and start your cruise here.
