A short passage in the panoramic lounge then direction towards the cabin because the fatigue is felt...
The day 2 will be marked by 7 stopovers during which it will be possible to come down for a visit of the city or for a departure of excursion (as regards a " coastal Express " the excursion starts in the stopover N and we take back the ship in the stopover N+1 or N+2).
During the night we shall have called at 15 minutes in:

  • Floro,
  • Maloy (one of the biggest Norwegian ports(bearings),
  • Torvik.

A night calms down on a glassy sea.

After the breakfast we stop in :

  • Alesund, very beautiful city of style art nouveau of 40 000 inhabitants.

After 4 hours of navigation in the fjord we make stopover at the level of the "port" of Geiranger and the boat which can not accost the participants in the excursion are going to be transshipped on a smaller boat and it along with the current ... Great!!!

We take a bus and take the " road of eagles " which offers fantastic points of view on the fjord and the lake Eisdal where from a ferry will lead us to Linen through the wild landscapes of the valley... Then we shall come down the " road of the Trolls " with its 11 hairpin bends which lead at the bottom of the valley and we continue towards the fjord of Romsdal and the city of Molde " The city of the roses " (not less than 2500 rosebushes on the roof of the City hall) where we shall embark again, after a dinner party, to continue our ascent northward...

Molde is also known for his jazz festival which takes place during a week from July 19th...
