Sailing schedule

On this short voyage you get to experience a northern Norwegian adventure. We start the journey on the outskirts of the Arctic, in a special landscape and climate. In winter the Northern Lights dominate, and in summer the sun does not set below the horizon.

Day 1

Ports: Kirkenes - Vardø - Båtsfjord - Berlevåg

Welcome aboard the ship in Kirkenes! The border with Russia is only a few kilometres away, and the road signs in Kirkenes are in Norwegian and Russian. You can go as far as the border on one of our excursions, or how about a visit to the Snowhotel where everything is made of ice and snow?


Day 2

Hammerfest in sunset on a winter day

Ports: Havøysund - Hammerfest - Øksfjord - Skjervøy - Tromsø

The polar landscape changes as we sail towards the west and south again. The great expanses are replaced by steep peaks, and in the evening we sail into Tromsø. You can take a stroll in the midnight sun or under the Northern Lights and explore the nightlife of the city dubbed "The Paris of the North".
