The Norwegian coast offers many exciting experiences
The Norwegian coast, with its deep fjords and high mountains, its huge glaciers and myriad of islands and islets, awaits for you on this classic voyage between Bergen and Kirkenes. In summer, there is the midnight sun. And in winter, in the long polar night, the Northern Lights dance across the sky.
A cruise with Havila Voyages offers peace and a chance to experience nature up close. It offers fresh air and salt, sea breezes, narrow fjords and the ocean's vast expanse.
Each season has its own special highpoints, and there are few places where these are more striking than in Norway.
In spring, the snow starts to retreat up the sides of the mountains, and the landscape explodes into various shades of green. In summer, the days are mild, and north of the Arctic Circle the sun does not set below the horizon. When autumn comes, the air becomes crisper, and a symphony of warm autumn colours descends over the landscape. In winter, the snow falls, and in clear weather you can see the Northern Lights.
From October to March, the Northern Lights dance in the sky in northern Norway, best seen on dark, clear nights.
The midnight sun is in the north from the end of March to the end of June, and the sun remains above the horizon day and night.
The polar night settles over northern Norway in the winter for weeks and months. But the time of darkness is not just dark. Some even call the time of darkness the time of colors.
