Holiday Overview

Famous for its breathtakingly beautiful fjords, world-class seafood, Viking history and peaceful, picture-perfect port towns, Norway is a wonderful holiday destination. Somehow, it’s even better when explored aboard one of P&O’s flagship cruise liners, the Iona.

Equipped with fully accessible cabins, a swimming pool, theatre, four-screen cinema and striking, glass-roofed SkyDome, it’s pure luxury. On your tour, you’ll visit Stavanger, with its historic wooden city centre. You’ll stop off at Olden and experience the unforgettable beauty of millions of years of glacial erosion as we cruise through Innvikifjorden, Nordfjord and the surrounding waterways. Finally, we’ll arrive in Haugesund - historic homeland of the Viking raiders who swept across Europe between the 8th and 11th centuries. 

As with all Limitless holidays, you’ll receive help and assistance from the Limitless care team throughout the voyage, ensuring you’re able to make the most of your time. Whether you want a hand when checking-in or transferring to and from our start location, we’ll be there by your side. We’re even offering a dedicated “potter around the port” service exclusively for Limitless guests, so that you’re better able to enjoy the stops in Stavanger, Hellesylt, Olden and Haugesund. 

Your tour includes your stay in your full-board, accessible cabin aboard the Iona. If you would like more information about accessibility aboard the Iona, we recommend getting in touch with one of the Limitless Travel Advisors on 0800 711 7232.

FAQ's

What month is best to cruise Norwegian fjords?

Embarking on a journey through the Norwegian fjords is a breathtaking experience, best enjoyed during the summer months. 

The Limitless Travel Norwegian Fjords Cruise in Summer 2025 sets sail in the warm and welcoming embrace of summer, offering not just the majestic views of towering snow-capped peaks and labyrinth waterways but also the most spectacular coastline vistas. 

Summer, from June to August, provides the ideal climate for cruising, ensuring that the natural beauty of Norway's fjords is showcased in all its glory.

Will I see the Northern Lights on a fjords cruise?

While the Northern Lights are a bucket-list phenomenon, their visibility is highly dependent on the time of year.

The Limitless Travel Norwegian Fjords Cruise is scheduled for the summer months when the days are long and nights are short, making it unlikely to witness the Northern Lights, which are best seen from late autumn to early spring. 

However, this cruise promises its own array of natural wonders, including the serene beauty of Norway's summer landscape, which is equally mesmerising.

Is it cold on a fjords cruise?

Even in summer, when the Norwegian fjords reveal their full splendour under a milder climate, it's wise to prepare for a range of temperatures. 

Aboard the P&O's Iona Cruise Lines, you'll be cruising in comfort, but when exploring the decks or venturing into port towns like Stavanger, Hellesylt, Olden, and Haugesund, having layers can help you adapt to the cooler air and breezes off the water. 

The cruise ensures a cosy experience, whether you're soaking in the panoramic views from the ship or exploring the quaint port towns, with all the amenities to keep you comfortable.
