Reap the benefits of visiting Norway at the end of spring and start of summer, when the waterfalls are still strong, but the temperature is milder. Borealis will take you on scenic diversions along Lysefjord – only possible on smaller ships – and Maurangerfjord, past the sprawling Fureberg Waterfall. You will also get to cruise Norway’s two longest fjords – Sognefjord and Hardangerfjord. Haugesund is your gateway to the tumbling Langfoss Waterfall, widely believed to be one of the ten most beautiful waterfalls in the world. It’s surrounded by steep mountains and lush green hills, and the national monument said to be the burial place of Viking King Harald Fairhair, the longest reigning monarch in Norwegian history. Elsewhere, Flåm offers a chance to see the archetypal fjordland scenery on a boat tour along the UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjord or aboard the world-famous Flåm Railway.
