Our two cruises are designed to enjoy this snowy wonderland to the full. Experience the winter fjords on foot, on snowshoes and by cable car by day. When the sun sets, the northern lights may display for us, supplying some memorable and magical night time views.

Many Norwegians say that autumn is the time to go hiking, when the air is clear and the countryside turns red and gold. Or experience the winter fjords either on foot, snowshoes or by cable car. Our three winter cruises are designed to enjoy this snowy wonderland to the full. When the sun sets, the Northern Lights may display for us, supplying some memorable and magical night time aurora views.

HIGHLIGHTS ON SHORE:

 Ålesund - Norway’s Art Nouveau city, beautifully situated on a peninsula surrounded by mountains and sea. Its low altitude means that the panoramic path above the city is normally clear in winter.

Trondheim - The city’s great attraction is the Nidaros Cathedral. We have a sightseeing walk around Trondheim and walk the Lade Trail for a short distance along the coast.

 Tromsø - Beyond the Arctic Circle, the city traditionally styled as the gateway to the Arctic. We don snow-shoes for a hike with a local guide on the hill of Kvaløya over the wonderful wintry landscape.

Alta - Beyond the Arctic Circle, we have a double arctic thrill here, taking a dog sled ride and visiting the Ice Hotel. There should also be time to visit the local museum containing information about arctic rock carvings.

 Narvik - Beyond the Arctic Circle. We drive inland for a guided visit to the Polar Park, the world’s northernmost animal park. It is home to Norway’s largest predators such as bear, wolves and lynx, as well as deer, moose, reindeer and muskox.

Kristiansund - A city built very attractively on four islands. We hike from the harbour to Vanndamman Lake and then to the Varden viewpoint.

Bodø - A little visited port just to the north of the Arctic Circle. We join with a local guide for a snow-shoeing walk through some beautiful scenery.
