There’s more to Norway cruises than the incredible beauty of the steep cliffs, crashing waterfalls and snow-capped mountains. There are plenty of cultural features to enthral and entertain travellers as they explore the charms of Scandinavia.
The capital of Oslo is a hub of cultures with a multitude of museums to choose from. The Holmenkollen Ski Museum opened in 1923 and charts 4000 years of ski history. For a taste of Nordic expressionism the Munch Museum showcases the paintings and drawings of Edvard Munch. The Norwegian Folk Museum features 155 traditional houses from all around Norway. There are many more including the Maritime Museum, Natural History Museum and Natural Gallery.
The more active traveller can go skiing in the city with a trip to Oslo Winter Park which offers skiing and snowboarding from November until April.
Bergen is known as the gateway to the fjords and the city is surrounded by acres of unspoiled nature. This beautiful city retains a traditional fairy-tale look with cobbled streets and wooden houses fitting perfectly with the lush landscape.
A Norway cruise provides a total cultural experience offering travellers the chance to fully experience a land where ancient lands meet rich cultural tradition.
