A Taste of the Fjords - Itinerary day 2: Ship at Sea
A Taste of the Fjords - Itinerary day 3: Olden
This sleepy hamlet sprang into life in the 18th Century. Today, it's best known as the gateway to the gleaming Briksdalsbreen Glacier, one of Norway's 'must see' sights.
A Taste of the Fjords - Itinerary day 4: Haugesund
What better way to experience Norway than with a visit to its birthplace? The battle that marked the unification of 29 Norwegian kingdoms into one country took place in the Haugalandet region – just down the road from Haugesund – in the year 872. Nowadays, the town is home to pretty, pastel coloured buildings and stunning natural landscapes. Plus, it’s becoming a hotspot for glitzy film and music festivals.
- Pay a visit to Haraldshaugen – it’s the national monument of Norway and commemorates the unification of the country. Its tall granite obelisk is surrounded by 29 memorial stones – one for each former kingdom.
- See the town from above at Haugesund’s best viewpoint – on top of Steinsfjellet Mountain. If you look over the fir tree forests, you can see out to the North Sea and the picturesque islands that are dotted along the coast.
- In Haugesund, you’re within easy reach of Karmøy island, where you’ll find some of the most beautiful beaches in Norway. They’ve got soft, white sand, and there are some grassy dunes to hike along, too.
A Taste of the Fjords - Itinerary day 5: Eidfjord
With v-neck valleys, jagged mountain peaks and glossy lakes, Eidfjord showcases all of Norway’s trademark scenery. But that’s only half the story. Set in the Hardangerfjord region, the town has a slightly milder climate than some of its northern neighbours. And, as a result, the landscape has got a look all of its own. In fact, the area surrounding Eidfjord is known as Norway’s orchard because of the apple, pear, plum and cherry trees that grow here. Visit in May or June and the whole place will be covered in a confetti of fresh blossom petals.
A Taste of the Fjords - Itinerary day 6: Stavanger
This sophisticated little city thrives in a patchwork of heather-covered hills and breathtaking fjords. Whether you come here to unravel its spellbinding history or just to soak up the magical scenery, Stavanger puts it all there on a plate for you.
