A protected UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Norwegian Fjords are a masterpiece of mother nature: sea inlets that sneak into the coast, sometimes for several kilometres, flooding the valleys that were once occupied by glaciers.
Norway is the "land of the fjords" because its western coast offers a concentration of them without equal in the world: a spectacle of raging waterfalls, monoliths of ice, imposing mountains and mazes of rock overlooking the sea.
Each Fjord offers different scenery: there are over a thousand and you will be spoilt for choice. Among the unforgettable cities that we can visit on our cruise, we propose four: Bergen, Tromsø, Trondheim and Ålesund.
What is the best time for a holiday in the Norwegian fjords? Surely the summer, when nature lives its fullness and the magic light of the midnight sun illuminates one of the most remote and pristine regions of the planet, allowing lucky travellers to experience magical emotions.
Itineraries, Ports and Stopovers
A Costa Norwegian Fjords cruise is an unforgettable experience. Not only for the priceless spectacle of rugged coastline, which constitutes its iconic attraction: the hinterland, with its history and ancient culture, is equally fascinating.
And what about the typical picturesque hamlets? Nestled like gems in the gorges carved out by the sea, or surrounded by majestic mountains: the legacy of the era of the Vikings, these villages have remained virtually unchanged through the centuries and attract visitors from all over the world.
Our itinerary for discovering Norway will take you to real wonders, like the colourful houses of Bergen, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or the cathedrals of Tromsø, known as the "Paris of the North".
Would you like to learn about Norway and its fjords as a traveller, not just a tourist? Then come away with us.
Norwegian Fjords Shore Excursions
The Norwegian Fjords offer endless possibilities for Shore Excursions and activities include landscapes of incredible variety and places where time seems to stand still.
You can choose a tour by kayak or in dinghy, trekking the mountains and then tasting of local produce in the hinterland. We recommend embracing all of the activities on offer, because they are the direct way to discover masterpieces of mother nature and centuries of history, a story told by unspoilt landscapes, folk traditions and stretches of sea once ploughed by the Vikings.
Even the City of Norwegian fjords has a story to tell: archaeological sites, picturesque buildings, museums, are as many testimonies of a culture that just begs to be known and appreciated. On a Costa Cruise, every shore excursion is an opportunity for enrichment: what are you waiting for?
