Itinerary
Click for Dates and Prices Day 1 Embarkation in Bergen
Before sailing from Bergen, you may wish to explore this cultural gateway to the fjords. Spend some time in one of the outdoor cafés and restaurants in the Bryggen district, a UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site. Other attractions include the Fløibanen Funicular and the Fish Market.

Day 2 Ålesund and Geirangerfjord
We sail further north to Ålesund, a beautiful town renowned for its Art Nouveau architecture. From here we set course into the spectacular UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord where you can enjoy a scenic excursion including a breath-taking drive down the winding Trollstigen Pass.

Day 3 The Royal City of Trondheim
The architecture and surroundings in Trondheim create a beautiful setting for any outing, whether as part of a guided tour in Nidaros Cathedral or a casual stroll through the Bakkland district. In the evening we continue to the Land of the Midnight Sun.

Day 4 Arctic Circle and Lofoten Islands
Crossing the Arctic Circle is one of the highlights before we arrive in Ørnes. The Arctic Circle marks the southern extremity of the polar, 24-hour sunlit day - often referred to as the “Midnight Sun”. In the evening we reach Svolvær, the picturesque capital of the Lofoten Islands. These islands are renowned for their small fishing villages with their Bohemian atmosphere, surrounded by majestic granite cliffs and white sandy beaches. Complete your visit with a stroll between the stock-fish racks and ‘rorbuer’, the traditional, red fishermen’s residences.

Day 5 Tromsø, Gateway to the Arctic
During the night we pass the magnificent Trollfjord and sail through the spectacular and narrow Raftsund strait. Here, you can admire the rugged mountainous landscape jutting up against the horizon under the endless sun. We continue to Tromsø, a city with many lively restaurants and cafés.

Day 6 Honningsvåg and the North Cape
Today we arrive in Honningsvåg, the starting point of our optional excursion to the spectacular North Cape, the northernmost point of mainland Europe. From the fishing village of Kjøllefjord you can get a “Taste of Lapland” by meeting a Sámi family.

Day 7 Kirkenes, disembarkation
The vistas and sea life become more dramatic as we approach Kirkenes, just a few kilometres from the Russian border and the Sámi communities of Northern Scandinavia. Summer in Kirkenes is superb with an average temperature of 14°C in July. The town is known as the Capital of the Barents Region and the Gateway to the East, with people here speaking Norwegian, Sámi, Finnish and Russian. Your voyage ends here.
