Norway Rambling

I’m just back from a cruise and walk holiday to the Norwegian fjords. We cruised aboard the Fred Olsen ship MS Braemar, which moored up in a different fjord every day and we were then taken on guided walks by a leader from the Ramblers’ Association. The walks were energetic but not unduly taxing, varying between 4 and 9 miles and we saw some beautiful scenery. Life on board was luxurious, as one might expect on a cruise.The weather was variable – blue skies and sunshine in Skjolden, pouring rain in Bergen – and we sailed back through a Force 9 gale, which laid many of the passengers low with sea sickness. Fortunately neither I nor my husband were badly affected. Altogether I can recommend a holiday like this for anyone who wants to get out and about in places you might not otherwise reach, while enjoying a high standard of comfort.
