VOYAGE HIGHLIGHTS

The mountains are set, but the weather and light change and give the landscape constantly new colors and expressions – from crackling green northern lights to radiant golden midnight sun. Along the coast, small fishing villages cling to weather-beaten nature on the narrow strip of land between wild mountains and rolling sea.

Day 1 Ports: Mehamn – Kjøllefjord – Honningsvåg – Havøysund – Hammerfest – Øksfjord – Skjervøy – Tromsø

The High Arctic changes as you sail west and south again. The large plains are replaced by steep peaks and in the evening you sail into Tromsø. Here you can catch a midnight concert in the Arctic Cathedral or you can stroll in the midnight sun or under the northern lights and explore the nightlife in the city that has the nickname “Paris of the North”.

Excursions

  • Snowmobile through the polar night , Mehamn
  • Breakfast on the Nordkapp plateau , Honningsvåg
  • Midnight concert in the Arctic Cathedral , Tromsø

Day 2 Ports: Finnsnes – Harstad – Risøyhamn – Sortland – Stokmarknes – Svolvær – Stamsund

We return to wild and idyllic Lofoten. Under the pointed mountains are chalk-white sandy beaches and fishing villages with vibrant fishing industry and locals who use the coastal cruise ships for everyday travel and transport. If the weather makes it possible, we go into the narrow Trollfjord. This is an area where the chance to see the sea eagle flying with the ship is great.

Excursions

  • Eagle safari in Trollfjorden , in RIB from ships
  • A taste of Vesterålen , Harstad
  • Experience Lofoten , Svolvær
  • Taste of Lofoten , Svolvær
  • Brewery visit and beer tasting southbound , Svolvær
  • Lofoten Golf , Svolvær
  • Lofoten on horseback , Svolvær
  • Eagle safari with RIB , Svolvær
  • Meeting with Vikings , Stamsund

Day 3 Ports: Bodø – Ørnes – Sandnessjøen – Brønnøysund – Rørvik

Now we cross the Arctic Circle southbound, but you can still see the northern lights in the winter and the summer nights are never completely dark. Here you sail in a myriad of small islands, islets and reefs and past the special mountain, Trollhatten, which has a hole in the middle. If you want, you can also join a trip to the mountain and go into the hole.

Excursions

  • Hike to Torghatten , Brønnøysund
  • The Norwegian salmon adventure , Brønnøysund
  • Experience the world heritage of the Vega Islands , Brønnøysund

Day 4 Ports: Trondheim – Kristiansund – Molde – Ålesund

We sail through the wide Trondheimsfjord with rolling agricultural settlements on both sides before entering the coast and the ocean. In Kristiansund, you can get off the coastal cruise ship and be driven across the Atlantic Road, perhaps the the world’s most beautiful road. It winds its way over islets, reefs and rocks. You get back on board in Molde.

Excursions

  • Trondheim and Nidaros Cathedral Sørgangen , Trondheim
  • Atlanterhavsveien and Bergtatt marble mine , Kristiansund

Day 5-6 Ports: Torvik – Måløy – Florø – Bergen

The last day of the trip takes you through a diverse coastal landscape with bare boulders and a maze of waterways between the many islands. Inland you see the large fjords and glaciers. And at the end of the journey, Bergen awaits and you disembark with good memories and new friends you have made.

Excursions

  • Norway in a nutshell, Bergen
  • Experience Bergen by sailboat , Bergen
  • Sea kayaking in Bergen , Bergen
