Itinerary
Click for Dates and Prices Day 1 Kirkenes, the voyage south begins
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. As we turn south, the northbound ports previously visited by night are now seen by day.

Day 2 Hammerfest and Tromsø
Start the day with a summer breakfast at the North Cape Hall (optional excursion), firmly perched on the massive cliff marking the northernmost tip of mainland Europe. We also make a stop in Hammerfest before our next major port of call, Tromsø, where you can take part in a very special musical experience, the Arctic Cathedral Midnight Concert.

Day 3 Vesterålen and Lofoten Islands
Passing through the Lofoten Islands the ship negotiates a stunning network of inlets and isles, before moving on to what is the highlight of the voyage for many, a possible detour into the spectacular and dramatic Trollfjord. Perhaps join an optional fantastic RIB safari through the Lofoten Archipelago under the Midnight Sun!

Day 4 Arctic Circle, Seven Sisters
As we sail along the Helgeland coast you can enjoy views of myriad islets, fertile farmland and lush meadows. Today will also be our last day north of the Arctic Circle. The Vega Archipelago, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is close to our call in Sandnessjøen and can be explored during our optional excursion.

Day 5 Trondheim and Kristiansund
We arrive in Trondheim in the early morning. Nidaros Cathedral, in which three Queens and seven Kings have been crowned, is Scandinavia’s largest medieval building and worth a visit. The town of Kristiansund, located on the scenic Atlantic Road, holds the rather obscure title of Norway’s ‘cured cod capital’ owing to the nature of its main export.

Day 6 Bergen, disembarkation
Our arrival in Bergen sees the end of this magnificent summer journey.
