Cruise north aboard Saga Sapphire to explore the history and natural beauty of Norway. We have five pairs of tickets to give away for this six-night cruise.
Forged by a succession of Ice Ages, the dramatic glory of the serrated Norwegian coastline is a feast for the eyes. From the small fishing communities to the large cities, where goods were traded and shipped around the world from colourful harbour-side warehouses, the sea has been an integral part of Norwegian life for centuries. And, its history is as colourful and dramatic as the coastal scenery; learn all about the Vikings and Norse traditions, and hear about a royal lineage that includes Eric Bloodaxe, Sweyn Forkbeard and Magnus Barefoot!
There are plenty of wartime stories too. Neutral in WWI, Norway was invaded by German forces in 1940 and lived under occupation for five years, building a daring resistance movement and bravely creating the Free Norwegian Forces. Travel back in time with a cruise on a sloop, as 19th-century pilgrims did before you, and get up-close to a glacier.
You’ll also discover the many charms of modern Norway, a ‘green’ country that produces virtually all of its electricity by hydropower, has thriving fish, oil and gas industries and is said to be the second wealthiest in the world. The Norwegians love their country and you will too.
