Hebridean Island Cruises, operator of the world’s smallest luxury cruise ship, Hebridean Princess, will be returning to Norway in 2014 for the first time in five years.
Hebridean Island Cruises will offer a total of three different itineraries in August 2014 sailing to some of Norway’s best known fjords including Hardangerfjord, Sognefjord, Ulvikfjord and Raunefjord. The decision follows a survey conducted amongst loyal guests asking for suggestions on cruising areas.
Hebridean Island Cruises will also extend its popular footloose walking programme to include Footloose in the Fjords, featuring a variety of walks in Balestrand, Laerdral, Fjaerland, as well as the unique opportunity to join a glacier walk in Sogndal.
Chief Operating Officer, Ken Charleson commented:
“We wanted our guests to be involved in developing the cruise programme for 2014 and beyond. We asked for ideas on where to sail outside of Hebridean Princess’ home waters of Scotland. After receiving an overwhelming number of responses Norway emerged as the clear favourite.
“We have carefully crafted a number of itineraries which reflect the true nature of a Hebridean cruise, offering guests the opportunity to visit distant, off the beaten track places and the chance to sail through a dramatic landscape, famous for its mountains, glaciers and fjords.”
