A seven-night discovery of Norway at its most spectacular, showcasing some of the fjordland’s greatest sights and highlights. Balmoral takes you on a journey into beautiful waterways to witness their wonder; see Lysefjord’s canyon of steep, rugged mountains and the towering, tree-topped mountains of Maurangerfjord, and absorb the springtime scenes of Hardangerfjord’s verdant, rolling valleys. You’ll marvel at the might of the Furebergfossen and Langfossen waterfalls too, while within picturesque Nordfjord the sight of Hornelen – North Europe’s tallest sea cliff – also awaits you.
There’s a visit to Andalsnes, from where you can ride the Rauma Railway for an up-close look at the beauty of Romsdalfjord’s mountainous landscapes, and to explore the ‘path of the trolls’ at Trollveggan and Trollstigen. A ride on the Fløibanen funicular railway is the best way to take in the scenery of Bergen, where you can also hike with a local and discover attractions such as the UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf. A chance to kayak the glassy waters of Hardangerfjord from Eidfjord is not to be missed, while from Olden you could choose to seek out the Briksdal glacier, or experience the unspoilt views of Nordfjord from the Loen Skylift.
Elaine was born in Yorkshire and although she has spent over forty five years in the south, she still sees herself as a Yorkshire lass. She is a proud grandmother of a boy, 13, and two girls, 11 and 5. She delights in being with them and finds that entertaining them is one of life’s pleasures. As yet, she hasn’t been able to interest them enough to learn to play bridge. Any spare time is taken up with visiting the gym, reading fiction, mainly mysteries, and attending some of the many courses available for retirees.
