If you’ve yet to experience the Norwegian fjords, then let me tell you something – you’re missing out big time! Their sheer size and wild beauty are enough to take anyone’s breath away. And if you’ve been dreaming of cruising around this part of the world then you’re in luck – travelnet.ie are offering a fantastic Scandinavia cruise from Dublin that’s looking very tempting if I do say so myself!
Scandinavia Cruise from Dublin
With this fantastic cruise deal you’ll have an incredible 7-night journey to Norway’s western coast this July, and it’s the first deal that’s kicking off my Holidayguru Cruise Week. Along the way you’ll see some of Europe’s most extreme landscapes and wonderful towns that are bursting with that typical Scandinavian charm. I’m talking lots of colourful wooden houses nestled in between valleys and mountains – it’s an absolute treat to see!
With this deal you’ll have return flights (incl. luggage) and transfers from Dublin to Amsterdam, where you’ll board the MS Koningsdam before setting off to the North Sea. Your fist port of call is Eidfjord, a lovely small town at the innermost point of a fjord. While you’re there I definitely recommend heading up to the Vøringsfossen waterfall via Måbødalen – it’s a very picturesque trip!
Next up is a journey along Hardangerfjord, one of Norway’s most famous fjords. You’ll eventually come to the city of Ålesund, a city strewn across islands that’s famous for its well-preserved Art Nouveau architecture. Geiranger is next, and this probably the definitive fjord town – in fact this is the place that comes to mind when most people think of Norway (yep, it’s picture above!). Your final stop in Norway is Bergen. It’s quite a sizeable city, so see as much as you can! You could even head up Fløyen or Ulriken, two of the city’s seven mountains. The views from the top really are something!
After all that it’s back to Amsterdam, where your journey will come to an end. Phew! During your time on the ship you’ll have full board catering and your entertainment all taken care of, so just kick back and enjoy the views!
If you’ve yet to experience this part of the world then I really recommend you go. These are views that’ll stay with you for the rest of your life! To enquire about booking a spot on this cruise, then just head on over to Travelnet.ie’s website and enter your details.
