Day 1

Rows of fish hanging out to dry by the ocean in the winter.

Ports: Trondheim - Rørvik 

Welcome aboard in Trondheim! The historic city of Trondheim, was founded over a thousand years ago. Nidaros Cathedral is the landmark of the city; it is Norway's national shrine and one of the largest cathedrals in Northern Europe. After our visit here, the voyage continues out into the fjord, into an abundant archipelago and heads for northern Norway.


Day 2

Red houses on rocky shoreline with majestic mountains in the background.

Ports: Brønnøysund - Sandnessjøen - Nesna - Ørnes - Bodø - Stamsund - Svolvær

On this stretch, we mark crossing the Arctic Circle with a ceremony and continue onward into the Arctic regions.  It means midnight sun in the summer, while winter days are merely a shade less dark than night-time and, possibly, Northern Lights in the evenings. Nature is powerful with northern Scandinavia's largest glacier, the world's strongest tidal current and encounters with the majestic sea eagle. In the evening, Lofoten's fishing villages, steep mountains and Vikings await.


Day 3

Downtown Tromsø seen by night and a fantastic orange blue city light scenery with a beautiful backdrop of mountains and orange to light blue heaven.

Ports: Stokmarknes - Sortland - Risøyhamn - Harstad - Finnsnes - Tromsø

The voyage continues on through narrow fjords and past wild mountains to Tromsø, a city characterised by hunting and fishing, polar expeditions and courage. Now you have also reached the land of the Sami, Norway's indigenous people. Meeting the Sami and their reindeer while hearing about the Sami culture is a unique experience you will remember.
