From modern cities and remote villages to lucious forests and rocky tundra, Norway has much to offer the explorer! There are many ways travelers choose to trek across this dynamic landscape, but cruising by boat along Norway’s coasts and through fjords has many advantages.
Here are three reasons why a cruise is a great way to see Norway.
Visit remote parts of the country
With lakes and mountains littering the landscape and stretching up to the Arctic Circle, Norway is not exactly the easiest country to get around. However, one advantage of its narrow width is that no matter where you are or want to go, it is not far from the coast, rivers or fjords. This is why traveling by boat is ideal.
A ship can ferry you all the way up the coast and reach remote places that may not be accessible by other modes of transportation. It’s in these areas you’ll often discover hidden gems not mentioned in the travel brochures.
Experiencing Norway by cruise allows you to see steep cliffs and mountains, deep fjords, dense forests and quaint villages up close. Because you are on a boat, you don’t have to worry about how to get there, how long it will take, where you will stay, or what to eat—all of that comes with you!
Travel while you sleep
One of the best things about traveling by cruise ship is that no time is wasted. If you’re not at a port enjoying excursions, sightseeing and local attractions, you’re on your way to the next location.
When driving by car, you need to actively transport yourself from one place to the next, regularly stopping for breaks, to eat and to sleep. Cruising allows you to go to bed in one region and wake up in a completely new landscape, ready for the adventures that lie ahead at the next port.
At Fjord Travel Norway, eco-friendly travel is one of our core values. More people are considering environmentally-conscious travel as they make their plans, and we help make this desire a reality. By taking steps to reduce our environmental impact, we help preserve the ecosystems and natural landmarks.
For example, on The Exclusive Grand Tour of Norway, Havila Voyages use electric and eco-friendly ships to sail through fjords from Bergen to Kirkenes.
With Norway’s amazing landscape, you cannot make a wrong choice when deciding where to go and how to get there. But if you want to efficiently travel to many unique and remote places in an eco-conscious manner, experiencing Norway by cruise ship is the way to go.
