Nature rarely presents itself in finer form than in Norway’s verdant fjordic landscapes and this
tour gives you a chance to touch base with the glorious scenery from the comfort of a coach. The
half-day outing begins by taking you along the northern shoreline of Innvikfjorden, which adjoins Nordfjorden, passing through the pretty villages of Blaskæter, Fjelli and Hopland en route to Nos. A photo stop is scheduled here to capture the stunning panorama of the fjord and the nearby mountains, after which you will move on to the hill of Kvalen for more gorgeous vistas of the surrounding countryside. After returning to the lakeside town of Hennebygda, you will move on to a hotel in Nordfjordeid to have coffee and freshly prepared “svele”, a Norwegian kind of small, sweet pancake. The return journey will take you along the banks of Hornindalsvatnet, the deepest lake in northern Europe with crystal-clear water, pretty little Islands and towering peaks in the background to round off your scenic experience.
Please note: wheelchair users must be accompanied by a paying helper to provide assistance with getting on and off the coach; wheelchairs must be collapsible/foldable since the coach has neither a ramp nor a lift. Wheelchair users wishing to take part in this are requested to contact the Shore Excursions’ Desk promptly once they are on board so that arrangements can be made.

You will travel up the mountain roads, with some sharp bends, to reach the Sivlefossen Waterfalls. You will stop at the Tvindefossen waterfalls, a twin cascade of two fabulous falls. The excursion continues to the town of Voss, prettily located on the Vangvatnet
Lake. You will board a train to continue your outing across a range of stunning natural landscapes, before reaching Myrdal.

FRIDAY - STAVANGER, NORWAY

STA02 – LYSEFJORD CRUISE
Duration: 2.5hrs / 3hrs
Adults €115 Children €89

 

Spread out in the waters off the northern Norwegian coastline near the town of Stavanger lies a group of larger and smaller islands that is simply referred to as the Stavanger Archipelago. While many of the islands are only sparsely inhabited by humans, they are home to abundant wildlife and boast spectacular scenery. There is no better way to enjoy views of the rugged coastlines and dramatic landscapes of both Norway and these islands than from the comfort of a modern boat, cruising in the direction of Lysefjord and the incredible cliff-top vantage point known as Pulpit Rock. When you see the way it towers over the fjord, you will understand
how it got its name. The rock is considered to be one of Norway’s natural wonders – and the very best way to admire its impressive proportions is from the fjord in a boat.
Please note: wheelchair users must be accompanied by a paying helper to provide assistance with getting on and off the boat; wheelchairs must be collapsible/foldable since the coach has neither a ramp nor a lift. Wheelchair users wishing to take part in this are requested to contact the Shore Excursions’ Desk promptly once they are on board so that arrangements can be made. The tour may have multiple departures during the day. Once on board, please contact the Shore Excursions’ Desk for information about the precise departure time. The Pulpit Rock is only viewed from the boat.
