A remote little town with a long straggling main street and the principal settlement of Vestvagoy, one of the mountainous archipelago of the 70-mile long Lofoten Island chain – whose serenely beautiful seascapes and fjord waters draw many summer visitors to this idyllic corner of Norway. Composed of some of the world’s oldest rocks, divided by fjords during the Ice Age, the islands are the setting of fertile farmlands and a jagged coastline dotted with fishing villages and ancient rocks – rising sheer from the sea to over 3,000 feet.

As you sail into Austnesfjorden, situated within the beautiful Vågan Municipality of Nordland County, the diversity of this glorious, 8.1-mile-long fjord’s scenery never fails to captivate and inspire.

On board your smaller-sized Fred. Olsen ship, you’ll be presented with views of towering cliffs and soaring peaks piercing the cool, crisp air, which are juxtaposed by the sight of picturesque little villages situated on low-lying lands that reach out into the glass-like waters.

The island city of Tromsø is one of northern Norway’s true delights. Rich with neo-classical architecture, the city known as the ‘Gateway to the Arctic’ contains the largest number of wooden houses in Northern Norway, and its old world charm makes it a joy to explore.

A major cultural hub above the Arctic Circle, Tromsø is famed as a viewing point for the colourful Northern Lights that often light up the night sky. The city’s most recognisable landmark is the must-visit Arctic Cathedral. Built in 1965, the cathedral’s distinctive iceberg-shaped design was inspired by the landscapes of Northern Norway and features a beautiful glass mosaic.

The many museums and galleries in the city include the Perspektivet Museum – set in a neo-classical building built in 1838 that has exhibits from Tromsø’s past, plus the Art Museum of Northern Norway and the Mack Brewery. Tromsø is also home to Polaria, an Arctic aquarium that is popular with locals and tourists alike. The aquarium’s tanks are full of Arctic fish species, and the friendly bearded seals always delight the visiting crowds.

Tromsø, and the stunning landscapes that surround it, are best viewed from the top of the Storsteinen Mountain, which stands 420 metres above sea level. Accessible via cable car, the peak is easy to reach and one of the most popular spots on the edge of the city.

Location Alesund

Ålesund is Norway’s popular, art-nouveau epic of towers and turrets, ornaments and balconies, steeples and spires. The city’s delightful pedestrianised streets, offer a diverse mix of art galleries, shops and lively cafés, and lead to the 418 steps that climb Mount Aksla. The Fjellstua restaurant and café at the summit is the perfect place to sit and soak up panoramic views of this attractive city, the archipelago, and the Sunnmore Alps.

Virtually destroyed by fire in 1904, Ålesund was rebuilt within three years and is regarded widely as one of Europe’s true visual experiences. The port is home to the Jugendstilsenteret – The National Art Nouveau Centre –, which has a well-preserved art nouveau interior and regularly features exhibitions and displays.

GATEWAY TO THE FJORDS OF NORTHERN NORWAY
Ålesund is the gateway to the iconic northwestern fjords and this seaport is the home base for Norway’s largest cod-fishing fleet, which, unsurprisingly, provides the city’s visitors with some superb seafood to try.
