Cruises to Eidfjord

About Eidfjord

Tucked under the granite cliffs of Europe's largest mountain plateau and surrounded by an icy fjord and a river that's fly-fishing heaven for those in search of trout and salmon, this community of 900 residents in Western Norway is yards from the small pier and easily explored in an hour.

The Art Gallery N. Bergslien holds fascinating paintings by Norwegian painter Nils Bergslien (1853-1928), which depict the landscape and daily life of his time, while several shops sell local knitwear and crafts.

Most visitors head for the region's natural wonders, which can be viewed by bus tours, helicopters or an hourlong ride on the "troll train." The Eidfjord (pronounced "Ayd-fjord") tourist office offers information on easy-to-access hiking trails, as well as free Wi-Fi.

Why go to Eidfjord?

Pros:

This charming town is worth spending some time in -- there's an art gallery and a few unique shops

Cons:

If you prefer more active port days, you'll have to venture outside of town, likely via organized tour

Bottom Line:

Though tiny in size, Eidfjord makes for a scenic stroll between excursions to the surrounding areas

Currency & Best Way to Get Money?

Norway's currency is the krone. Credit cards are widely accepted and an ATM can be found a few hundred feet from the pier, by the Coop supermarket just past the tourist office. For current currency conversion figures, visit www.xe.com.

Language?

Norwegian is the official language, but English is widely spoken.

This was the most beautiful port of our 14-day cruise due to the incredible water way and towering cliffs including Pulpit Rock. Great photo ops.Read More
