Information about Norway
Norway is rightly famed for its stunning coastline. Created over millions of years by the relentless passage of glaciers carving their way to the sea, Norway's shores are marked by the countless fjords, valleys, and small rocky islets (known as skerries) that shelter it from the raging North Atlantic.
The capital city, Oslo, and the northern city of Tromsø both serve as departure and arrival ports for a number of Arctic cruises, but many cruises embarking from other ports such as Edinburgh will often follow the Norway coastline because of its beauty.
As well as remarkable geography, you can also enjoy the abundant birdlife. On your passage along the Norway coast, you will see puffins, skuas, auks, jaegers, petrels, and many gull species.
