Not all cruise destinations can be judged by how many splashy features they have. That’s why cruising to a remote village in Norway is such a unique experience that you should consider making part of your next vacation! With only 200 or so residents, Skjolden is the very definition of tiny… but the local views didn’t seem to get the message. Skjolden isn’t just located at the end of a 200 km fjord, panoramically ringed with mountains… it actually has more unique ideas for your vacation than you might guess. The village isn’t just your gateway to two national parks — Jotunheimen and Jostedalsbreen, both incredible — but lets you indulge your newest interest: wooden stave churches, a Norwegian architectural specialty. See some that are still standing after nearly 1,000 years!
