ShipParade - exclusive cruise ship photos reviews and stories about ports of call and cruise experiences
September 5, 2007 - It is not often that you see the tiny town of Gudvangen, Norway pop up in cruise itineraries. While most cruise ships concregate in nearby Flaam on the beautiful Sognefjord, Gudvangen can only be reached by small cruise ships and the town lacks tourist facilities. In 2007, we cruised on Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines' Braemar and in the morning, we docked in Flaam. We booked the famous "Norway in a Nutshell" tour from Flaam to Voss but instead of returning to Flaam, coaches brought us to Gudvangen where our good ship was waiting for us. Gudvangen is located on the seldom visited Naerøyfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage site. As its name implies, this fjord is narrow! It is also breathtakingly beautiful. As Braemar sailed past farmhouses, churches, waterfalls and towering rocks, fellow passengers were simply lost for words and you could only hear the clicking of cameras. Here is the result of that clicking: our photo report of the cruise down the 20 km (12 mi) long Naerøyfjord.
