Unique wilderness and well-being pursuits for Iona’s fjords debut

P&O Cruises' newest ship, Iona will set sail for its maiden season in the fjords on April 9, with guests able to join exclusive experiences designed to explore Norway’s unique landscape.

P&O Cruises President Paul Ludlow said: ‘After a very successful inaugural season of UK coastal cruises and the winter in the Canaries and Europe, we are delighted to see Iona embark on her first season in the fjords.’

He said the holidays offer ‘adrenaline experiences combined with the tranquility of the natural environment.'

RIB ride and kayaks

With Iona sailing weekly departures from home port Southampton through September 2022, ex-SAS personnel and expert survival guides will take guests on a RIB ride from Hellesylt to Ljøkaia, with dramatic vistas along the way. They will then kayak through the glassy waters of Geirangerfjord, followed by a wilderness barbecue lunch.

Yoga in the Blue Mountain Hall in Olden is a different kind of adventure, for complete beginners to seasoned yogis. Participants will practice gentle exercises and breathing techniques in this unique structure part-formed by a huge boulder that fell from the mountains in an avalanche 6,000 years ago.

Norwegian flavours

On board, guests can experience fresh Norwegian flavours in Epicurean restaurant with an exclusive six-course fine dining taster menu designed by award-winning restaurateur and P&O Cruises Local Food Hero, Kjartan Skjelde.
