Silversea Luxury Cruises To GUDVANGEN

GUDVANGEN
GUDVANGEN

On an arm of Sognefjord, Gudvangen is 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 can't reach the valley floor. Mystical Gudvangen is the site of white caves and medieval stave churches. View more

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. Cruise passengers are brought ashore by tender at one of two small piers, which are both in the center of town.

Excursions in GUDVANGEN

Stalheim with Museum & Tvinde Waterfall

Experience the spectacular mountains, fjords, valleys and waterfalls of Norway during this panoramic, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Nærøy Valley, Glashamaren, Oppheim Lake and Tvinde Waterfall

Depart the pier for the scenic drive up the Nærøy Valley. Drive along the Salmon River, then past Glashamaren, where the road winds its way up the mountain in front of you and leads to the Stalheim Hotel. However, your current route takes you through the tunnels that pass underneath the mountain. Leaving the tunnels, continue along the road leading to Voss and Bergen. From here, pass by beautiful Oppheim Lake, then through woodlands and green farmland before approaching the spectacular Tvinde Waterfall. Upon arrival, take a short stroll amidst the fresh air for a closer look at the falls, which cascade down the mountainside. Afterward, re-board your coach and head back towards the Stalheim Hotel, which is perched on a cliff overlooking the Nærøy Valley.


Stalheim Hotel and Museum, and Stalheim and Sivle Falls

After refreshments served at the hotel, head to the terrace for splendid panoramic vistas overlooking the valley, or browse the hotel's shop and many antiques on display. Some time is also made available to explore the owner's open-air museum, which consists of 25 16th- and 17th-century farm buildings gathered from various parts of the country, as well as the stately, beautifully-furnished Lekve House (comment. It will be a guided walk with visit to some houses, guests can not visit the houses themselves). Following your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 45-minute drive back to the pier. En route, drive down Norway's steepest road, which has 13 hairpin turns, to the valley below. Waterfalls plunge down both sides of the road; the Stalheim-fall is to the right, and Sivle-fall to the left. Upon reaching the valley floor, follow the Nærøy River back towards Gudvangen.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 875 yards (about 800 metres), at times over uneven, gravel and grassy surfaces and inclines, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and ten steps at the Stalheim Museum; a ramp is available at the museum. This tour is suitable for guests with limited mobility, but is not wheelchair-accessible nor recommended for guests with a fear of tunnels. Guests are advised to wear warm, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes, and bring a waterproof jacket or coat from the ship. Due to the local climate, most of the coaches are air-cooled. The tour sequence may vary.
