Cruise with PONANT on an exceptional itinerary and discover the beauty of the Norwegian fjords.
Come aboard the Le Jacques-Cartier for an 8-day cruise and sail along the Norwegian coastline, whose vertiginous cliff faces have been sculpted by the wind and the sea, giving rise to many unspoiled fjords.
From Bergen, famous for its Hanseatic wharf which still carries a few traces of the rich historic past of the city founded by the Vikings, you will set sail for Olden. From this small and charming village, located a few kilometres from Jostedalsbreen National Park, which is home to one of the last ice caps in Europe, you will have the opportunity to admire the magnificent Briksdal glacier.
Your ship will then sail towards the Geiranger Fjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, before making its way to the small colourful and cosmopolitan towns of Hellesylt, Alesund and Stavanger, where you will be able to admire the wonderfully preserved fishermen’s houses that date from the 18th century.
During your cruise, you will have the privilege of sailing in the famous “Lysefjord” (light fjord), flanked by granite cliffs.
Arendal, once known as the Venice of the North because of its canals, will be an utterly charming port of call.
On the final leg of your trip you will call at Gothenburg, in Sweden. Your cruise will end in Oslo, the Norwegian capital, a city with a unique energy.
