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, as well as Alesund, with its Art Nouveau architecture and striking natural landscapes. 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, Alesund, 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.

Stavanger, Norway

< >

Land ahoy! Stavanger is our first port of call and a perfect introduction to the Norwegian coastline. Once a Viking stronghold, the city is famed for the beautiful wooden homes that dominate its historic centre. The cruise ship will dock just a 10-minute walk from the city centre, so you’ll be able to make the most of your time in this picturesque destination.

Alesund, Norway

< >

Next, it’s on to Alesund - a maritime town that’s home to the country’s biggest cod-fishing fleet and a wealth of striking architecture. After a devastating fire gutted much of the town at the start of the 20th Century, Alesund was rebuilt in the Art Nouveau style and has remained one of Norway’s most popular holiday destinations ever since.

It’s not just the architecture that inspires, though. Founded on a string of islands, visitors to the town enjoy breathtaking natural landscapes in every direction, particularly over the Sunmore Alps to the east.

Olden & Innvikfjorden

< >

Today, we arrive in the land of the Vikings, Haugesund. Though the town itself is relatively young, the local area was a hotbed of Viking activity and the first king of Norway, Harald Fairhair, lived just 8km from the modern settlement. Home to the Norwegian International Film Festival and a high-profile annual jazz gathering, there’s a lot of culture packed into this relatively small town.

As we dock, you’ll have the chance to explore the local area or choose to stay on the ship and make the most of the Iona’s sauna, steam room or swimming pool, as well as any of the other onboard facilities.
