Experience a land where dawn and twilight merge on the edges of the long Arctic night. Cruising far north in Norway’s winter, witness what few others see: wondrous snow-dusted landscapes, cities hushed in slumber and the luminous aurora borealis dancing in the sky. Sami legends, a sled dog ride and mysterious rock carvings bring you close to your destination. Join us on this truly illuminating cruise.
London (Tilbury), England
Arrive in Tilbury, a historic town on the north bank of the Thames River. Settle in to your veranda stateroom and take time to explore your ship, perhaps enjoying a proper English tea in the Wintergarden.
Cruise the North Sea
From the heart of the Old Town, where your ship berths, you will have the morning and early afternoon to explore. Start here in the old quarter, Gamle Stavanger, which has Europe’s highest concentration of wooden buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries.
Day at Sea
As you cruise to our next port, spend the day savoring the amenities of your elegant ship. Indulge in Nordic-inspired treatments at The Spa or find your inner calm with some yoga on the Sports Deck
Explore the lovely city of Bodø today, home to a masterful cathedral. Bodø lies just north of the Arctic Circle, and was rebuilt to what you see today after its destruction in World War II.
Enjoy the lovely setting of Tromsø’s historic center, spread over a scenic island surrounded by snowcapped peaks. On an included tour along heated sidewalks, installed to keep the snow at bay, admire its blend of wooden structures and neoclassical buildings. You’ll see the stunning Arctic Cathedral with its striking triangular shape, the city’s most recognizable symbol
Resting on the stunning shores of Altafjord, Alta is the gateway to some of Europe’s most magnificent natural beauty. Its frequent clear skies make it an ideal locale from which to view the northern lights.
Home to a former Viking settlement, Narvik is situated on the innermost shores of the Ofotfjorden. The small town enjoys a dramatic backdrop, encircled by mountains in every direction and the glacier that spills right to the water’s edge.
Day at Sea
Encircled by majestic mountains, fjords and glaciers, Bergen was home to Viking sagas. With your ship berthed next to Bryggen wharf, a UNESCO Site, easily stroll along its waterfront. See the beautiful 18th-century wooden houses, and visit the Hanseatic Museum on your included tour.
