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
in the world, with 4444 steps from the fjord

The Åkrafjord (VII/C2) is a narrow fjord with precipitous mountain
walls on both sides. In powerful and wild nature, join a fjord cruise to experience the Langfoss waterfall.
Frafjord (VII/C5) stretches from Dirdal and into the village of

Frafjord. The fjord has steep and narrow sides, and near the village Frafjord, the river Frafjordåna runs into the fjord.
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
“Jæren” landscape to the west and the heathlands towards the inland. See the fjord on a train ride between Sandnes and Stav anger.

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.
