Nordfjord, Norway Cruise Port

The port at Nordfjordeid cruises into a sprawling urban area that borders the largest glaciers on the European mainland. The biggest of those glaciers, Briksdalen, is a draw for many international travelers each year. As the administrative center for the municipality of Eid, Nordfjordeid is a premiere stop for modern culture. It is home to a bustling, professional opera company and the Sophus Lie Conference Center for Mathematics. The outskirts of town, to either the north or south, offers a variety of hiking trails challenging for beginning and seasoned hikers alike. Nordfjordeid was the original site where locals and professionals helped reconstruct the Myklebust, the largest Viking ship ever found, and now it resides in the nearby Sagastad center. Every year in mid-July—the height of cruise season—brings about the Malakoff Rock Festival, a three-day live music show that welcomes, on average, 20,000 spectators and 5,000 campers.

 

  • Venture to the Jostedal Glacier National Park to view the Briksdalen Glacier which plunges an impressive 1,200 meters to the valley below. A prime attraction such as this brings over 300,000 visitors every year.
     
  • Bask in the serenity of the Olden Lake boat rides as you explore far-stretching nature running along either side of the clear, calm waters below.
     
  • Take in the majesty of the Myklebust, a 100-foot-long replica of the largest Viking ship that played host to the final and grandest cremation of the Viking age.
     
  • Learn even more about the glacial wonder, 1,000 years of history in fact, on the all-day tour entitled “From the Viking Age to Modern Times.” This round-trip journey will bombard you with scenery, culture, and historical events.
