A norwegian coastal voyage offers the traveller scenery on an epic scale, together with a wonderful feeling of peace and tranquility. it is difficult to imagine a more relaxing setting than coastal norway. The immense size of the fjords and the timeless quality of scenes that have changed little in the past centuries create a unique atmosphere that can be particularly enjoyed from the comfort of the MS Caledonian Sky.
Words cannot describe the awe-inspiring scenery as we take in views of mountains, glaciers, waterfalls, valleys and truly dramatic fjords. Amongst them, Naerofjorden has been included on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
A highlight for many will be the journey on the Flâm Railway, one of the most beautiful railway lines in the world. The train journey provides us with views of some of Norway’s wildest and most magnificent scenery with rivers cutting through deep ravines, cascading waterfalls, snow-capped mountains and mountain farms clinging to sheer slopes.
We then continue our journey along the fjord indented coast, into the Arctic Circle to the Lofoten Islands, with their many small fishing villages amongst a backdrop of mountainous scenery that often experiences snowfall even in the summer.
We also spend time exploring the narrow and deep sided Trollfjorden and seeing the wildlife in Bleiksoya and Andenes. Such a journey can of course only be undertaken by a special vessel with the self-sufficient qualities of the MS Caledonian Sky. With our Zodiacs we shall be able to take advantage of wildlife sightings and weather conditions and explore areas that the bigger ships cannot reach.

They will supervise the daily programme and hold talks and briefings throughout the cruise. The expedition teams have one aim, to make your trip as enjoyable, relaxing and informative as possible.
