Join us on a one-way winter expedition to the landscapes of the Norwegian coast, exploring its fjords, towns, and cities on the hunt for the Northern Lights.
Your first stop in Norway will be Bergen, where the Fløibanen funicular will take you to a viewpoint 320 metres above water level for wonderful view of the city. Don’t miss the UNESCO-listed Bryggen district with its colourful wooden wharfs.
We then continue on to Sognefjorden, the longest and deepest fjord in Norway. Here you will visit the tiny hamlet of Fjærland, not far from the largest glacier on the European continent, Jostedalsbreen. Next is breathtaking Hjørundfjorden, surrounded by the Sunnmøre Alps with peaks soaring 1,700 metres straight up from the sea.
The hours of daylight shorten once we cross the Arctic Circle, replaced by dim blue twilight that makes the snowy scenery of the coast even more magical. Explore the Lofoten archipelago and the town of Svolvær, with the impressive jagged peaks of granite mountains as a dramatic backdrop. Next up, visit the war museum in Narvik to understand the central role this town had during World War II.
After discovering the beauty of Vesterålen, your expedition cruise ends in Tromsø, known as “Paris of the North” for its cosmopolitan vibes and as the “Gateway to the Arctic” for its long history of polar exploration.
