3-Day Norwegian Voyage | Bergen to Trondheim

Itinerary

The highlight of this short voyage will either be UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord if sailing with us in summer or hidden Hjørundfjord in autumn. In winter and spring, you’ll spend most of the second day getting to know the town of Ålesund, admiring its range of Art Nouveau architecture or joining one of several optional excursions.

DAY 1 : Bergen

All Aboard!

Your voyage starts in Bergen, the second largest city in Norway and gateway to the fjords. Founded in 1070 AD, Bergen boasts architecture influenced by prosperous 14th century German trading organisation, the Hanseatic League.

If you’ve time before your ship departs, visit the UNESCO-listed wharfs of the colourful Bryggen district, now an artisan quarter complete with cobblestone streets. Just across the street is the famous Fish Market which serves delicious seafood. There’s also the Fløibanen funicular which whisks you up Mount Fløyen for lovely views of the city.

To get the most out of your visit to Norway, don’t forget that we can also help you to arrange tours before or after your voyage, such as the Norway in a Nutshell programme.

Your voyage begins

Before boarding, you can relax in our comfortable guest lounge at the terminal. Once aboard, enjoy the first of many delicious meals made from fresh coastal produce as we depart Bergen and sail the old Viking route along Hjeltefjord.

You’ll also meet your ship’s Coastal Experts who will be your guides as we cruise Norway’s coastline, organising lectures, onboard activities, and optional hikes.

Optional excursions
  • Hiking Pass (4 hikes) – Summer
    Embrace the Norwegian concept of “friluftsliv” and embark into the beautiful wilderness.
  • Hiking Pass (4 hikes) – Winter
    Enjoy hiking the stark beauty of Norway’s winter landscapes and experience what locals call “friluftsliv”, perhaps under the magical Northern Lights.

Enjoy early morning in the breathtaking Nordfjord near Torvik. We then sail past West Cape for our approach to Ålesund.

Art Nouveau city

Ålesund is renowned for its beautiful Art Nouveau architecture and Atlanterhavsparken, one of Northern Europe’s largest saltwater aquariums. If you’re travelling with us in spring or winter, you’ll have most of the day to explore this picturesque town.

Into the fjords

In the summer, from June to August, we set course for UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord. This is a protected and preserved piece of paradise with towering mountain cliffs and waterfalls like the famous Seven Sisters cascading into the fjord.

In spring, from April to May*, and in autumn, from September to October, your ship will sail to Hjørundfjord, hidden away in the Sunnmøre Alps. There’ll also be a call at the scenic village of Urke to gaze at the view of thousand-year-old farms, the fjord, and the lush mountainsides.

*Only on voyages departing in 2025-26. 

Mountains and roses

The last port of the day is Molde. In summer, there might just be enough daylight to see the amazing view of 222 mountain peaks across the fjord, called ‘the Molde Panorama’.

From mid-June to late August, the streets and gardens here will be adorned with the sight and scent of roses of all shades, living up to Molde’s nickname as ‘The City of Roses’.

Optional excursions
  • Geiranger With Trollstigen Pass
    A scenic bus journey from Geiranger village brings you to Eidsdalsvatnet Lake and continues to the Norddalsfjord for a ferry ride. We rejoin the bus and travel to Gudbrands Gorge and down the winding Trollstigen Pass to Molde.

DAY 3 : Trondheim

A magical meeting with Trondheim

This morning you’ll wake up in Trondheim, a beautiful city that is like something out of a fairy tale. The architecture is very special, and there is a mystical ambiance. After breakfast, you can disembark and go and explore the city. Few large cities have managed to retain their historical character in the way that Trondheim has.

The narrow medieval passageways are still in place, and create a stark contrast to the broad streets from the 17th century. In the city centre, there are lots of wooden houses with some dating back as far as the 1700s. Trondheim was Norway’s first capital and was founded by the Viking king Olav Tryggvason in the year 997.

Join us on a guided tour of Nidarosdomen (Nidaros Cathedral), or walk through the charming streets on your own as you uncover the secrets of Trondheim. Take in the view from Gamle Bybro, which was built in 1861, and the charming wooden houses in Bakklandet. Nidarosdomen is not to be missed. The building of the cathedral began in 1070, and it is built on the site of Olaf II’s grave.

Today it is Norway’s largest gothic building. You’ll be enthralled by the incredible, richly-detailed dome and the fantastic works of art.
