As the second highest line after the Bergen Railway, this railway includes great variations in terrain and altitude along with 8 kilometres of tunnels. The journey concludes with a steep, winding descent into the lowlands where Trondheim is located. Take the rest of the evening to discover the sights of this medieval city, including Bakklandet, an idyllic neighbourhood full of history and culture.

    Today you have the entire day to explore this vibrant port city that was once the capital of Norway during the Viking Age, back when it was called Nidaros. Here you will find the remarkableNidaros Cathedral—with architecture to rival Paris’s Notre Dame, as well as countless other attractions like the Ringve Museum and Gardens, the Trøndelag Folk Museum, the old wharf area and much more.

    During the night, the ship calls at Torvik, Maløy and Florø and weaves around rocky islets and stunning landscapes en route to the final destination—Bergen. Here you will disembark in the afternoon and enjoy the rest of the day as you wish. For a good overview of this city, we recommend the one-hour “mini-train” sightseeing tour through the city centre, offering such sights as Maria Church, the Rosenkrantz Tower and King Håkon’s Hall as well as a panoramic view of the city from the Fjellveien Road.

    Despite being Norway’s second largest city and a major cruise port, Bergen—“The Capital of the Fjords”, has retained the atmosphere and charm of a small town. Here you’ll find the old wharf of Bryggen—a UNESCO World Heritage site, centuries-old houses, a vibrant fish and flower market and an interesting range of museums. Or, for a bird’s eye view of the city, take a relaxing and scenic ride up the Flöibanen cable cars to the top of Mount Fløyen.

And not far from Stavanger is the gorgeous Lysefjord, which includes the famous natural landmarks of the Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen) and Kjærag Mountain with its dare-devil photo spot, the Kjeragbolten boulder.
