Frequently asked questions about cruises in Scandinavia

Scandinavia, part of northern Europe, generally held to consist of the two countries of the Scandinavian Peninsula, Norway and Sweden, with the addition of Denmark. Some authorities argue for the inclusion of Finland on geologic and economic grounds and of Iceland and the Faroe Islands on the grounds that their inhabitants speak North Germanic (or Scandinavian) languages related to those of Norway and Sweden. 

Typically, when these other areas are added to Norway, Sweden, and Denmark, the group is called the “Nordic countries.”

So this means when you are searching for cruises or tours in Scandinavia you will also see some of them called Nordic Tours as the names are used interchangeably.

The most popular sights you’ll likely encounter on a cruise around Norway include;

  • The crown jewel of any Norway cruise is undoubtedly the fjords. These dramatic geological formations are carved by glaciers, creating long, narrow inlets with steep cliffs that plunge into crystal-clear waters. Cruising allows you to experience these majestic fjords from a unique perspective, taking in their full grandeur and scale.
 
    • Geiranger fjord:A UNESCO World Heritage Site, renowned for its waterfalls, lush vegetation, and dramatic cliffs.
 
    • Sogne fjord:The longest and deepest fjord in Norway, offering stunning scenery and charming villages.
 
    • Nærøy fjord:Another UNESCO World Heritage Site, known for its narrow passage and dramatic rock formations.
 
  • Norway boasts picturesque coastal towns and cities with rich history and culture. Many cruises incorporate stops in these charming locations, allowing you to explore their colorful houses, narrow streets, and historical landmarks.
 
    • Bergen:Nicknamed the “Gateway to the Fjords,” Bergen is a beautiful city with a vibrant harbor, colorful Bryggen wharf area, and Mount Fløyen offering stunning views.
 
    • Ålesund:Known for its Art Nouveau architecture and surrounding natural beauty, Ålesund is a charming town perfect for wandering and exploring.
 
  • Norway’s natural beauty extends beyond the fjords. Cruises might also offer opportunities to witness other awe-inspiring sights, such as:
    • Glaciers: Norway is home to numerous glaciers, some of which can be seen up close from cruise ships, offering a glimpse of the country’s glacial landscapes.
    • Waterfalls: Countless waterfalls cascade down mountainsides in Norway, with some cruises incorporating stops near these majestic displays of power.
    • Wildlife: Keep your eyes peeled for whales, dolphins, and other marine life while cruising along the Norwegian coast.

  • Norway has a rich history and culture, and some cruises may incorporate stops at historical sites like:
    • Viking settlements: Learn about Viking history and culture at archaeological sites or museums.
    • Stavanger Cathedral:The oldest cathedral in Norway, dating back to the 12th century
