Norway's Naroyfjord and Geirangerfjord have been chosen as the joint top Natural World Heritage Sites by the experts at National Geographic. They offer some of the most breath-taking scenery in Europe with tumbling waterfalls such as the Suitor, Bridal Veil and the spectacular Seven Sisters. Only on a smaller ship such as Balmoral will you be able to experience these sights at such close proximity. The passage through these fjords (just 250 metres wide) is one of the most dramatic in Europe.
Take a fantastic ride on the Fl?m railway from the Sognefjord to the mountaintop at Myrdal at 863 metres above sea level. Also visit Bergen, where we include a walking tour and visit to the magical ice bar which is truly a unique experience! Add to that a visit to the home of the composer Grieg, with an included concert. Hanseatic Bergen has many attractions including the UNESCO listed Bryggen Wharf with its colourful timbered houses, cobbled streets and vibrant fish market. Charming Olden, set amongst babbling brooks that meander between pretty houses is the gateway to the stunning Lovatnet Lake and the magnificent Briksdal Glacier and Jostedalsbreen National Park.
