Cruises from Skjolden
The tiny hamlet of Skjolden is the innermost cruise port of Norway, located at the head of Norway’s longest and deepest fjord - Sognefjord - and at the foot of Norway’s highest mountains and largest glacier. Be on deck for the approach to Skjolden via the picturesque Lusterfjord, which is emerald green because of the melted water from the glaciers. Skjolden (pop. 400) is an extraordinary little place, a sprawling village and gateway to mountains, glaciers and some magnificent walks and scenic drives.
Waterfalls tumble down the precipitous slopes into the fjord and raspberries and strawberries are cultivated on any available bits of flattish, fertile ground at the water’s edge.
