Experience the onboard luxury, with exclusive use of the ship for your group, as well as a chef and skipper to guide your experience through the fjords. Moor on the banks of the fjords to explore the landscape at your own pace: hike up the mountains, paddle kayaks through narrow waterways, paddleboard around waterfalls or visit a fjord farm on a tractor.
