Select an unforgettable tour from a list of MSC Cruises excursions including:
• Måbødal Valley
• Vøringsfoss Waterfall
• Hardangervidda National Park
A day trip to Måbødalen Valley serves up some of Norway’s most spectacular scenery. Here, winding roads with hairpin turns ascend steep mountains with panoramic vistas. Grassy emerald swathes stretch for miles while jagged cliffs hug serpentine rivers. Hike the trails, relax by the water, or photograph the landscapes from the region’s many viewpoints.
Cascading dramatically from Hardangervidda plateau, Vøringsfoss Waterfall is a sight to behold. Every year, this natural wonder attracts a wealth of admirers thanks to its dizzying drop and volume of water. In 2020, a new addition was revealed at the site — an extraordinary cliff-to-cliff bridge. From here, one can view the waterfall in all its glory before retiring to Fossli Hotel for a piping-hot drink.
For those who adore the big wide open, a journey to Hardangervidda National Park must be on the cards. A mountain plateau spanning several counties, the region boasts a year-round alpine climate and one of the country’s biggest glaciers: the epic Hardangerjøkulen. Teeming with arctic flora and fauna, Hardangervidda is famous for its herds of migratory reindeer. Thrill-seekers will also find plenty on offer, from hiking and abseiling to rafting down rivers.
