We arrive in Rotterdam in the morning and have until early afternoon to explore this city of modern architecture and delightful culture with a whole host of attractions. Rotterdam is divided north and south by the River Nieuwe Maas with the city centre located on the northern bank of the River. Built mostly behind dykes, large parts of Rotterdam are below sea level. Over the centuries, Rotterdam has grown from a fishing village into an international centre of trade.

Day 4 - Monday

We will be cruising the beautiful Sognefjord before arriving in Flåm. Surrounded by towering mountains, the tiny village of Flåm, with some 500 inhabitants, nestles at the head of Aurlandsfjord, the innermost arm of the Sognefjord. Its popularity as a tourist destination began in the late 19th century with the arrival of steamships carrying English and German passengers including Europe's royals attracted by the salmon fishing in the Flåm River. Today's visitors are drawn to Flåm for a chance to ride on one of the world's steepest and most spectacular railways. A masterpiece of engineering, Flåm Railway twists and turns through the steep-sided Flåm Valley amidst some of Norway's most breath-taking mountain scenery.

Day 5 - Tuesday

Today we will arrive in Bergen. Known as the 'Gateway to the Fjords', Bergen is Norway's second largest city. Yet with a population of less than a quarter of a million, it has the feel of a small town. It is beautifully sited against a backdrop of seven mountains, and the funicular ride to the summit of Mount Fløien affords panoramic views of Bergen and Norway's attractive coastline. Overlooking the harbour, the colourful Bryggen wharf is the face of Bergen. The characteristic wooden gabled buildings were once the home and offices of Hanseatic merchants but today house shops selling crafts and traditional souvenirs.

Day 6 - Wednesday

After cruising Hardanger Fjord, we will arrive in Eidfjord. Lying at the end of a tributary of the beautiful Hardangerfjord, Eidfjord is surrounded by mountains up to 1,900 metres high. The small town is the gateway to Hardangervidda, which is the largest high mountain plateau in Europe and Norway's largest national park. A short walk from the village centre there are graves by the roadside dating back to the Iron Age and Viking eras. The 'old' church in Eidfjord was built in 1309. Nearby, the stunning Vøringfossen waterfall is one of Norway's most popular natural attractions and features in optional excursions along with the amazing Sysen Dam.
