Olden, NorwayThis prize draw is now closed.

This month our prize is a fabulous 8-night Autumn Fjordland cruise for two people onboard Columbus, leaving from London Tilbury on 26 September 2020. 

Travelling via Rotterdam up to the most stunning fjords, you’ll enjoy full board (three delicious meals a day) on the ship and fabulous evening entertainment too, staying in a Superior Twin Ocean View cabin.

Your Cruise & Maritime Voyage takes you to one of The Netherlands most interesting cities, and then on up to Sognefjord and Flam, a sweet little village beside clear, deep water which has a remarkable railway, one of the steepest in the world and a serious feat of engineering which provides spectacular views. Nordfjord is next and a visit to the town of Olden, surrounded by farmland.  Breathe in deeply to thoroughly enjoy the clear, pollution-free air.  Immense Jostedalsbreen Glacier and its offshoot Briksdal Glacier are magnificent natural wonders, creating waterfalls and lakes in the jagged mountains and fertile valleys.   

Geiranger, NorwayGeiranger and its eponymous fjord are total contrasts – an attractive village, set in dramatic scenery and the fjord with still, mirror-like waters, plumbing fathoms deep.  

Bergen, with its historic, colourful Bryggen wharf, is your final port of call, where you can take a funicular ride to the summit of Mount Floien to enjoy panoramic views to the coast across the city. 

Columbus is a mid-size ship, dedicated to cruising in the traditional style, with Formal and Informal evenings, speciality restaurants and wonderful deck parties, as well as the show lounge and various watering holes. Read more

    I’d be over the moon to win this prize, it’s always been my dream to cruise around the Fjords and very hopefully to see the Northern Lights. I have a really long list of places I want to visit that i’m working through but this is definitely at the top. Thanks for the chance x

    I'd love to go on a cruise and have always wanted to see the fjords. Add to this the possibility of seeing the elusive Northern Lights and my fingers are tightly crossed that I win this prize.

    Never been on a Fjord cruise and this sounds amazing. Can almost taste the purity of the air and mountains. I have just finished a jigsaw of a scene of colourful Bergen and I promised myself that we must visit there one day. Wasn't expecting to get this opportunity to make my dream come true. Would love to present my hubby with this prize so got everything crossed.

    Norway is a fantastic place. Went on coach tour from home on ferry from newcastle to stavager up through norway north to bodo once. On our free day at bodo we took the local bus to a fishing village museum. This was splendid. Trip also involved crossing on a ferry, and then getting on another local bus parked and waiting there to pick up the driver and the passengers. The driver lived there and that was his daily journeys. After returning us to the ferry later he went home and another driver took over after the ferry.
    I do like using the local transport. There was even a wedding at the local church and the guests were also in national costume and travelled back to Bodo on the same ferry.
    It was genuine and not laid on for us tourists. Loved it all.
