Join Olympic gold medallist and swimming legend Shane Gould
on this classic journey through Norway.
From an exhilarating train ride through the Flam Valley to the
cobbled streets of ancient Bergen, you’ ll travel by rail, bus and
ferry, enjoying incredible scenery and experiencing charming
towns. Then immerse yourself in Norway’s unique environment
onboard Hurtigruten. Originally established to transport freight
between the isolated communities of the fjords, Hurtigruten
now introduces travellers to some of Scandinavia’s most remote
and breathtaking locations. Discover the beauty of Norway’s
coastline and Arctic communities on this spectacular voyage
along the rugged Norwegian coast. Enjoy the laid-back and casual
atmosphere onboard – there is no need to dress up for dinner, and
the emphasis is on relaxation and exploration.
You’ ll share this experience with an Australian Olympic icon –
Shane Gould MBE invites you to join her on one of the world ’s most
beautiful journeys. Shane takes her place in Australia’s sporting
heritage as one of the world ’s greatest female swimmers. She swam
at the Munich 1972 Olympics, and is still the only woman ever to
win five individual medals. In 1972 she held all freestyle world
records – the 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m and 1500m as well as the
200m individual medley, a feat unmatched since then. Shane and
her husband Milt have helped establish swimming programs in
Scandinavia, where many migrant children have never learned to
swim. They both love travelling in the region.
September is a great time to be in Norway – as summer fades
and changes to autumn, the colours of the coastal forests are
spectacular. Along the Norwegian shores the clear air strengthens
the reds and yellows that cover the mountain sides, hilltops and
woods. Autumn is a tranquil time on board Hurtigruten, with time
to enjoy the landscapes, fresh air and scenery.
From Oslo to Kirkenes you will experience the best that Norway
has to offer. Combining Norway in a nutshell with a Hurtigruten
cruise showcases the diversity of Scandinavian landscape and
culture. Shane has always wanted to cruise Norway and she invites
you to come and experience ‘the world ’s most beautiful journey’
with her. As a special bonus, every booking will receive an
autographed copy of Shane’s book ‘Tumble Turns’.
