PONANT invites you aboard Le Boréal for an exceptional 9-day cruise along Northern Europe and Scandinavia, to discover cities with a major cultural heritage and exceptional wild landscapes.
Your voyage will begin in the port of Honfleur, a picturesque Norman city. Le Boréal will first sail towards Belgium, starting with Ostend. Among other scenery, you will be able to admire its sea front and the sumptuous Belle Epoque-style façades which bear witness to the town's rich past as a seaside resort.
Then you will cruise to the Netherlands and reach the port of Amsterdam. You will stroll through the city, which is famous for its canals, and enjoy its inhabitants' relaxed way of life. Amsterdam is famous for its museums, but you will also fall under the charm of the incredible flower market and the superb façades of the beautiful houses.
LeBoréal will then sail towards the pleasant city of Sandnes, from which you will have the opportunity to hike at Pulpit Rock, an impressive cliff that rises 604 metres (1,982 ft) above the waters of the Lysefjord below, offering a breathtaking panorama.
You will also have the privilege of sailing in this famous "Lysefjord" (light fjord), flanked by granite cliffs.
Then you will chart a course further north to continue exploring the Norwegian fjords and sail in the calm waters of the Hardangerfjord, the second longest in Norway. At the heart of this pristine natural jewel, you will discover the sublime glacier landscapes while an array of abundant orchards is visible on its lush green shores.
Your cruise will finally end in Bergen. The city founded by the Vikings is famous for its Hanseatic wharf which still carries a few traces of its rich historic past.
