Welcome! How do YOU like your water? Swimming, rafting, surfing, sailing, diving. Hiking and skiing – a hot chocolate break. Along the beaches, over snow-coated mountains, in a summer warm mountain lake, while island hopping or near a roaring waterfall. As snow, splashing of

waves, light rain, morning mist – or ice cubes. From the Viking age, or straight from the stream. Renewable energy, or energy to walk the last mile. You decide, or water does it for you. Enjoy.

Iconic hikes

1 Preikestolen 

– the most iconic of them all. If N ­ orway had been designed by landscape ­architects,

Preike­stolen would have been an award-winning work of genius. No other mountain better sum up the thrilling beauty that is the hallmark of

­Norwegian nature. Such a famous trek c­ reates high ­expectations. Is Preikestolen really that good? It

might be sunny or rainy, windy or ­foggy – but that

is part of the charm. You know when you approach the end of the steep trail through the birch forest: The landscape opens up and you sense the depth around Preikestolen’s ­surprisingly small plateau. 8 km / 4 hours return. VII/C5

The surrounding landscape flourishes with oak,

In western Norway, the fjords are often surrounded by dramatic

mountain landscapes, and they often have more calm waters than the open sea, and act as natural harbours.

The most famous fjord is the Lysefjord (VII/C5), a 40-km-long fjord with icons such as Preike­ stolen, Kjerag and Flørli.

Flørli (VII/C5) is most known for having one of the longest and steepest wooden stairs

The Jøsenfjord (VII/C4) extends around 27 km from Hjelmeland/

Nesvik into Førrebotn. The mountains tower on both sides of

the fjord, up to 700 m a.s.l. The views can be admired from the Norwegian Scenic Route Ryfylke.

Notice «Dråpen» (the drop of water) behind the red house at Helleren. Two buckets collect drops of water drizzling from the mountains. Allegedly, this was to serve travellers from afar.

Gandsfjorden (VII/B5) lies in the distinction between the flat

The Stone age 10,000–1700 BC

The first “Norwegians” used natural cave shelters as homes, often near large moving boulders near water.

Vistehola (VII/B5) is one of Norway’s oldest Stone Age settle-

ment sites. The first people settled here around 6,000 BC. The cave now lies a good distance from the sea, 16 m a.s.l., but in

the Stone Age, the sea waters would have lapped at the cave’s entrance. A s­ keleton of a 15-year old person, known as Vistegutten (Viste boy), was found among bones, antlers and flint tools. It is one of the o ­ ldest discoveries of human remains in Norway.

The cruise industry emphasizes strongly on reducing emissions and sustainable tourism. Like several other industries, we have an environmental footprint that is not good enough. Therefore, our industry has committed to cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2030. At the same time, we

are happy to see that more ports are opening onshore power facilities, which will help to eliminate emissions while ashore. 30% of the existing fleet and 88% of newbuilds are ready to receive onshore power. We can assure that the cruise industry takes its environmental responsibility very seriously and will be at the forefront of the development towards a greener and more sustainable shipping industry.
