Silversea Luxury Cruises To Eidfjord

Eidfjord

Enriched with chalky blue waters, plummeting green slopes and gushing waterfalls – Eidfjord is a place to soak it all in, and let Norway's natural majesty wash over you. Gulp in the crispest air while exploring plunging fjord lands, soaring mountains, and more than 4,000 years' worth of human history. Photography enthusiasts be warned - you'll need your widest-angle lenses to capture the staggering crumpled mountain panoramas and curving fjords here. View more

A small cluster of compelling galleries and Nordic churches dot the quiet town of Eidfjord, but nature is unquestionably the star here. Explore it your way - whether you want to dip your hands into the cold fjord water on a zodiac, feel the wind in your hair while cycling, or walk through hazes of colourful wildflowers while crunching hiking trails. Sometimes it's good to feel small - and this part of Norway enjoys the kind of sweeping grandeur and scale to leave you feeling utterly humbled. Challenging hikes reward with once-in-a-lifetime views - like the cinematic vista from the precarious majestic rock plank of Trolltunga, which teeters out precariously over a 700-metre drop to the grand lake below. The thrilling thunder of Vøringsfossen Waterfall's kinked plummet is equally moving, as you witness the waters tumbling down for 200 metres. For a more laid back way to view the local area, jump aboard the Trolltrain, which will whisk you past the stones of a Viking burial ground, as part of a relaxed roll through the area's history.
