Voyages to the far north...
Guided Cruise and Walking Holidays - Land of the Midnight Sun
These cruises cross the Arctic Circle, then continue far beyond. You leave the world of the reindeer behind and enter that of the polar bear. Glaciers, sea cliffs and fjords – this is nature at its northern wildest and most spectacular.
Our unique shore walks and excursions include:
Trondheim - We walk along the edge of the fjord, explore the city centre and visit the Gothic splendour of the city’s Nidaros Cathedral.
Honningsvåg - We venture into the hills behind this remote town, just short of North Cape, to experience true Arctic wilderness, normally spotting reindeer as we go.
Kristiansund - A town built on four islands. Our walk up the hill of Kvernberget with a local guide rewards us with views over sea, islands and mountains.
Pyramiden - Possibly the wildest place you will ever visit, a remote outpost on the island of Svalbard, just 800 miles from the North Pole. A local guide takes us across streams and open tundra to a lake. We hope to see reindeer and polar foxes as well as arctic flora.
Longyearbyen - This is Svalbard's premier arctic adventure port. A local guide takes us across the Foxfonna glacier or to the top of Sukkertoppen Mountain.
Tromsø - An island city famed as the gateway to the Arctic. We visit the Polar Museum, the Arctic Cathedral and take the cable car up Mount Storsteinen from where a spectacular panoramic walk is possible.
Leknes - On the remote Lofoten Islands north of the Arctic Circle. Our walk takes us up the grassy hill of Sundsheia for magnificent views of the island’s jagged peaks and coast.
Åndalsnes - Our walk up the mountain takes us to the amazing man-made lookout point of Rampestreken high above Åndalsnes, with an expansive view of peaks, valleys and fjords.
