Sailing from Norway
Setting sail from Bergen
Beautiful Bergen, Norway's former capital, is a perfect city to explore on foot. Bryggen - the old Hanseatic wharf, and a UNESCO World Heritage site - still has the old harbour timber buildings, whilst other attractions include the funicular up Mount Floyen, with stunning views when you reach the top, and the busy fish market.
Rosendal is famous for the Barony, an historic manor house and Renaissance garden that was home to some of Norway’s most distinguished nobles between 1655 and 1927. Rosendal is also near to the beautiful Hardangerfjord and Folgefonna National Park.
Norway: Ulvik (Hardangerfjord)
The Hardangerfjord region is rich in natural beauty, and is sometimes known as ‘Norway’s orchard’ on account of the many fruit farms growing apples, cherries, pears and plums. There are some fantastic hiking trails in the region, along with sights including the famous Trolltunga rock.
Leirvik is the main settlement on the island of Stord, and the main attraction is the Stord Maritime Museum,which documents 100 years of Norwegian maritime history. The island also has some nice walking trails and a small folk museum.
Arriving in Bergen
Your home from home
We know of no ship quite like this one; a tiny little gem, dedicated to Scotland and all things Scottish, this Princess is fit for a queen!
What we love
A single ship with just 50 guests and in operation for only nine months of the year - hardly viable in the modern day, you would think - and when you step aboard you will also feel as if you have been swept into a bygone age, when kindness was key. A one word descriptor? Charm, perhaps. But that only begins to cover what is special about Princess.
|Style||Like a cosy and comfortable pair of slippers, Hebridean Princess envelops you the moment you step aboard. It feels like your best friend's welcoming Scottish home - with food and drink to match.|
