Discovering the fjords

A stop in Andalsnes during your MSC cruise of Northern Europe will give you the opportunity to admire the nature of the Norwegian fjords in all their splendour.
Andalsnes, together with Molde, the main town in the region, is located in the Romsdalsfjord, one of the fjords protected by UNESCO as a world heritage site. It is already exciting to enter a fjord on board a cruise ship but here you can also tackle the most incredible treks like the Trollstigen, the trolls’ staircase, that looks like it’s painted on the imposing mountains.

As you will discover during the MSC excursion, you climb all the way up to Stigrøra (858 metri a.s.l.) along 11 u-bends, in some parts cutting right into the mountain rock. Finally, a massive stone bridge will take you across the awesome Stigfossen Falls. But reference to trolls doesn’t end here: Trollveggen is one of the most famous mountain faces amongst rock-climbers around the world, as also the Romsdalshorn cloimb.

You can explore the Eikesdalen valley and the Mardalsfossen falls, that plunge vertically down almost 300 metres into the valley. A vacation in Norway allows you to travel along some of the most extreme routes in the world like the Atlantic Road that connects the fishing villages of Ona, Bjørnsund, Bud and Håholmen. Or the Aursjøvegen road that goes from the Eikesdalen valley across the Sunndaløra valley.
You then reach Varden, 400 metres above Molde, to enjoy the spectacular view: the entire Romsdalsfjord in front of your eyes and behind you as many as 222 peaks covered in snow almost all year round.

In Andalsnes you should not miss an excursion by train: the Rauma Railway trains travel slowly, occasionally stopping so you can admire unique spots such as the imposing Trollveggen, the ancient stone bridge in Kylling, as well as the falls and the Stavem tunnel where the train makes a 180° turn inside the mountain.

    挪威的假期如梦幻般美好。 梦幻般的峡湾是这片土地最令人回味和最具特色的自然地貌。


    在MSC北欧航程期间,您也有机会欣赏绚烂的北极光;而如果您在夏天出行,那么一旦向北越过北极圈,您就能欣赏到壮观的午夜太阳。 在去往挪威的航程中,您也有机会探索两种古老人群的文化。其一是维京人(Vikings),他们不只是海盗和勇士,还是商人,探险家和殖民者,在直至11世纪的三百年间统治着斯堪的纳维亚和大西洋北部海域。另一个人群是这些地区的原住民萨米人(Samis),他们穿着五彩的衣服,驯养着大群的驯鹿,一万多年以来就这么生活在遥远的北方。

    最后,小心提防这里的巨魔(troll)! 您将参观的许多地方都以这些传说中的生物而命名,包括Trollheimen、Trollstigen(这里有壮观的巨魔之路),Trollhatten和Trollveggen。
