New for 2017 – Only Two Sailings! Explore spectacular fjord country and Norwegian culture past and present on a seven-night Norwegian fjords cruise aboard Le Soléal – sailing between Oslo and Bergen – stay one night at a downtown hotel in both historic cities, and spend a day in Göteborg, Sweden. Norwegian Fjords & Coastal Treasures begins in either Oslo or Bergen. Discover Oslo’s Viking Ship Museum and take a private sculpture tour at the Vigeland Museum. Sail to Göteborg and check out the Volvo Museum; Kungsportsavenyn, the city’s elegant main avenue; and the lively Långgatorna neighborhood, a hive of homegrown fashion labels, indie bands, and craft beer bars. On to the beach town of Kristiansand to explore its open-air museum of historic buildings and savor a culinary walking tour. The residents of a private home in Old Town Stavanger welcome you for a real taste of local life in Norway’s oil capital; visit the Norwegian Petroleum Museum and Iron Age Farm for insights into the Vikings. Head up the Norwegian Sea coast into fjord land… alighting in Alesund for a multi-island drive with scenic views, or a guided walking tour of the historic town and its Art Nouveau architecture. At spectacular Geiranger Fjord, a day’s touring and a mountain gondola ride surround you with inspiring vistas – dramatic as only Norway can be. A private cruise just for Tauck guests on picturesque Lake Loen leads you to amazing Kjendallsbreen glacier. In Bergen go on a walking tour of the historic Bryggen port, and take the famous funicular up Mt. Floyen for the views. After a guided visit at the home of Edvard Grieg, Norway’s greatest composer, you’ll be entertained with a reception and a private piano concert for Tauck guests only. Enjoy a celebratory dinner at the Norwegian Fisheries Museum – and much more as you sail aboard your yacht with all excursions and special events included!
