ABOUT THE PORTS

COPENHAGEN

Copenhagen has no glittering skylines, few killer views, and only a handful of meager skyscrapers. Bicycles glide alongside manageable traffic at a pace that’s utterly human. The early-morning air in the pedestrian streets of the city’s core, Strøget, is redolent of freshly baked bread and soap-scrubbed storefronts. If there’s such a thing as a cozy city, this is it. Not a microcosm of Denmark, Copenhagen is, rather, a cosmopolitan city with an identity of its own. It is Denmark’s political, cultural, and financial capital and it is filled with museums, restaurants, cafés, and lively nightlife. The imaginative, unconventional, and affable Copenhageners exude an egalitarian philosophy that embraces nearly all lifestyles and leanings.

FLAAM

Flåm is situated on an arm of the world’s longest (at 204 km [127 mi]) and deepest (at 1,308 m [4,291 feet]) fjords. The village of only 400 inhabitants is cast against a backdrop of steep mountains, thundering waterfalls, narrow valleys, and deep canyons. Cruise ships-bringing primarily British and German passengers-began transiting the majestic Sognefjord to Flåm in the late 19th century. Today, it’s Norway’s fourth most popular port of call, a fact that can be attributed not only to the beauty of the fjord but also to the popularity of the Flåm Railway, considered to be one of Europe’s most dramatic rail excursions.

GUDVANGEN On an arm of Sognefjord. Gudvangen is situated at the foot of steep cliffs soaring 5,500 feet above the water’s surface and plunging deep to form one of the region’s deepest fjord basins. Snow-capped mountains, green cliffs, and veils of tumbling waterfalls characterize the vertical landscape on the approach to Gudvangen. The fjord is so narrow in places that during winter, the sun does not reach the valley floor. Mystical Gudvangen is the site of white caves and medieval stave churches. Standing sentinel over the ornate entrances to the venerable wooden sanctuaries are visages of fierce trolls and dragons, carved by long-dead Viking craftsman from the region.

KRISTIANSUND

Kristiansund, located halfway up the long west coast of Norway, is spread out across a swathe of rocky islands with its main center located on the islands of Nordlandet, Gomalandet/Kirklandet and Innlandet, all linked together by bridges. Founded in 1742 as a trading port, the coastal town retains a preserved old town area around the harbor, with its customs house, warehouses, merchants’ dwellings and various musuems relating to the trades that caused Kristiansund to prosper. The modern section boasts a lively market place and brightly painted houses that give the town a charming appearance. As the home port to a large fleet of fishing boats, seafood provides the basis of much of the local economy. With about 17,500 inhabitants, Kristiansund’s small town atmosphere, history and unique geographical position as well as the friendly attitude of its people make it a pleasant place to visit. Outside of Kristiansund, visitors enjoy traveling the coastal route, known as the Atlantic Highway, which utilizes a series of bridges that connect islands and outcrops throughout the open sea.

HELLESYLT

The small village of Hellesylt is an old Viking port located at the head of the Sunnylvenfjord on the northwest coast of Norway. Here, glacier-fed streams cascade over towering granite cliffs and descend to the calm waters of the fjord. The thundering waterfalls, snow-capped mountains, lakes and crystalline glaciers, inspired Henrik Ibsen’s dramatic masterpiece, “Brand.” Guests wishing to witness Norway’s majestic fjords, as well as the dramatic mountainous interior, will take the opportunity during this brief call in Hellesylt to join overland excursions. Tour HLL-A Overland from Hellesylt to Geiranger will rejoin the ship later today in the port of Geiranger. For the more adventurous, you may opt for HLL-B Rafting Valldal which also rejoins the ship in Geiranger.

GEIRANGER

The intricate outline of the fjords makes Norway’s coastline of 21,347 km (13,264 mi) longer than the distance between the North Pole and the South Pole. The fjords were created by glacier erosion during the ice ages. In spectacular inlets like Geirangerfjord, walls of water shoot up the mountainsides, jagged snow-capped peaks blot out the sky, and water tumbles down the mountains in an endless variety of colors. Lush, green farmlands edge up the rounded mountainsides, and the chiseled, cragged, steep peaks of the Jotunheimen mountains-Norway’s tallest mountain range-seem almost tall enough to touch the blue skies. The first cruise ship sailed in Geiranger in 1869; needless to say, they have kept coming.

BERGEN

A place of enchantment, Bergen’s epithets include “Trebyen” (Wooden City), for its many wooden houses, “Fjordbyen” (Gateway to the Fjords), for obvious reasons, and “Regnbyen” (Rainy City), for its 200 days of rain a year. Most visitors quickly learn the necessity of rain jackets and umbrellas, and Bergen has even handily provided the world’s first umbrella vending machine. Norway’s second-largest city was founded in 1070 by Olav Kyrre as a commercial center. The surviving Hanseatic wooden buildings on Bryggen (the quay) are topped with triangular gingerbread roofs and painted in red, blue, yellow, and green. Monuments in themselves (they are on the UNESCO World Heritage List), the buildings tempt travelers and locals to the shops, restaurants, and museums inside. Evenings, when Bryggen is illuminated, these modest buildings, together with the stocky Rosenkrantz Tower, the Fløyen, and the yachts lining the pier, are reflected in the water and combine to create one of the loveliest cityscapes in northern Europe.
