You’ll cruise through breathtakingAlpefjord. Fjords punctuate the scenery all around. Your day will be spent exploring and Zodiac cruising through a multitude of dazzling icebergs, fjords and sounds in all shapes and sizes. Beon the lookout for arctic fox and muskox, which roam free here.

DAY 4 Brogetdal and Watershausen
GlacierMulti-hued mountains surround lovelyBrogetdal, which was originally called“painted valley,” and later translated to mean “multicoloured valley.” You’ll viewcolorful vistas, and fascinating geology. Later, you’ll travel to the impressive and rarely visited WaltershausenGlacier, an imposing ice floe at the head of Nordfjord, named after German explorer Baron Wolfgang Sartorius vonWaltershausen, after his failed 1869attempt to reach the North Pole via EastGreenland. 
DAY 5 Blomsterbugten and Renbugten
Blomsterbugten, the “Bay of Flowers,”is home to beautiful purple and gold-coloured rocks that you’ll view from a distance, or on a hike for those who wish.
