    Cruise with PONANT on a beautiful itinerary and discover the beauty of the Norwegian fjords.

    Come aboard the Le Bellot for an 8-day cruise and sail along the Norwegian coastline, whose vertiginous cliff faces have been sculpted by the wind and the sea, giving rise to many unspoiled fjords.

    Departing from Bergen, founded by the Vikings over 900 years ago, your ship will reach Olden, a small village with two wooden churches and undeniable charm. Nearby you will be able to admire the Briksdal and Kjenndalen glaciers, at the heart of Jostedalsbreen National Park, which is home to one of the last ice caps in Europe.

    A must-visit port of call on your trip is Geiranger, a small Norwegian town located in the Sunnmøre region. In 2005, the Geiranger fjord became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. During your cruise you will discover the Bridal Veil and Seven Sisters, two famous waterfalls with mythical names.

    You will also visit Stavanger, a cosmopolitan and prosperous small town with a perfectly balanced blend of old and new, before setting sail for the Swedish city of Gothenburg, in the heart of an archipelago of thousands of islands that are home to small fishing villages.

    Your voyage will end in Oslo, the Norwegian capital, in its exceptional natural setting.
