Directly next to your ship you will embark a boat for a cruise into one of Norway's most stunning fjords, the so called "Fjord of the Light," or Lysefjord in Norwegian.

You will start by cruising alongside the many small islands of the Stavanger Archipelago on which many have built holiday homes with their own private piers.

If weather permits you will get an amazing view of the famous Preikestolen, or Pulpit Rock, that towers out over 1,969 feet above the fjord. Your cruise will take you directly underneath the Pulpit Rock to gaze at its marveling height.  Before returning to Stavanger, you'll make a short stop at Helleren, an idyllic beach at the mouth of the Lysefjord.  Here you will get to enjoy some of Norway's traditional waffles which are served with sour cream and sweet local fruit jams.

Bergen, Fantoft Stave Church & Greigs Home & Garden

This enriching excursion will take you south of Bergen to view a remarkable wooden church and to visit the home of Norway's famed composer, Edvard Grieg. You will drive through the residential areas south of Bergen, towards Fana and the Stave Church. The old Stave Church at Fantoft was originally built in Fortun in Sogn in 1150, and was moved to Fantoft in 1883 to save it from demolition and preserve it as part of the nation’s heritage.  After a destructive 1992 fire, artisans extensively and faithfully restored the church to its former beauty. Inside, you can admire the traditional timber construction and elaborately carved decoration. From spiritual faith to musical brilliance, you'll also visit Troldhaugen, home of Norway's famed composer Edvard Grieg.  Troldhaugen was built in 1885 and Edvard Grieg lived there for 22 years together with his wife Nina. Grieg composed many of his best-known works in the composer’s hut by the shore of Lake Nordås. Enjoy a guided tour of the Villa, museum and the garden and some free time to walk around on your own afterwards. Your visit will end with the highlight of the tour; a private recital in Troldsalen. One of the best interpreters of Grieg’s music will play some of the famous pieces as well as some of the more unknown ones, and tell stories and anecdotes about the composer and his wife.

Please note: It is recommended that you dress in layered clothing and wear flat comfortable walking shoes. This tour involves stone steps, uneven ground and gradual slopes.
