Itinerary

Day 1 Embarkation in Bergen
Ports visited today: Bergen
Before sailing from Bergen, you may wish to explore this cultural gateway to the fjords. Spend some time in one of the outdoor cafés and restaurants in the Bryggen district, a recognised UNESCO World Heritage Site. Other attractions in Bergen include the Fløibanen Funicular, the Fish Market, and Fantoft Stave Church.
Day 2 Ålesund and Geirangerfjord
Ports visited today: Florø, Måløy, Torvik, Ålesund, Molde
We sail further north to Ålesund, a beautiful town and a perfect example of the Art Nouveau style. Then we will sail into the spectacular UNESCO listed Geirangerfjord where you can enjoy a scenic excursion including a spectacular drive down the winding Trollstigen Pass.
Day 3 The Royal City of Trondheim
Ports visited today: Kristiansund, Trondheim, Rørvik.
The architecture and surroundings in Trondheim create a beautiful setting for any outing, should you prefer a guided tour in Nidaros Cathedral or a casual stroll through Bakklandet. In the evening we continue towards the land of the Midnight Sun.
Day 4 Arctic Circle and Lofoten Islands
Ports visited today: Brønnøysund, Sandnessjøen, Nesna, Ørnes, Bodø, Stamsund, Svolvær.
Crossing the Arctic Circle is one of the highlights before we arrive in Ørnes. The Arctic Circle marks the southern extremity of the polar, 24-hour sunlit day - often referred to as the “Midnight Sun”. In the evening we reach Svolvær, the administrative center of the Lofoten Islands. These islands are renowned for their small fishing villages with their bohemian atmosphere surrounded by majestic granite cliffs and white sandy beaches. Complete your visit with a stroll between the stock-fish racks and ‘rorbuer’, the traditional, red fishermen’s residences.
Day 5 Tromsø, the gateway to the Arctic
Ports visited today: Stokmarknes, Sortland, Risøyhamn, Harstad, Finnsnes, Tromsø, Skjervøy.
During the night we pass the magnificent Trollfjord and sail through the spectacular and narrow Raftsund strait. Here, you can admire the rugged mountainous landscape jutting up against the horizon under the endless sun. We continue to Tromsø, a city with many lively restaurants and cafés.
Day 6 Honningsvåg and the North Cape
Ports visited today: Øksfjord, Hammerfest, Havøysund, Honningsvåg, Kjøllefjord, Mehamn, Berlevåg.
Today we arrive in Honningsvåg, the starting point of our excursion to the spectacular North Cape, the northernmost point of mainland Europe. From the fishing village of Kjøllefjord you can get a “Taste of Lapland”, meeting a real Sámi family.
Day 7 Kirkenes, the voyage turning point
Ports visited today: Båtsfjord, Vardø, Vadsø, Kirkenes.
The vistas and sea life become more dramatic as we approach Kirkenes, just a few miles from the Russian border and the Sami communities of northern Scandinavia.
Summer in Kirkenes is superb with 86°F degree temperatures at its hottest. The town is known as the capital of the Barents Region and the gateway to the east, with people here speaking Norwegian, Sámi, Finnish and Russian. As we turn south, the northbound ports previously visited by night are now seen by day.
Day 8 Hammerfest and Tromsø
Ports visited today: Mehamn, Kjøllefjord, Honningsvåg, Havøysund, Hammerfest, Øksfjord, Skjervøy, Tromsø.
Start the day with a summer breakfast at the North Cape Hall (optional excursion), which is firmly perched on the massive cliff marking the northernmost tip of mainland Europe. From here we make a stop in Hammerfest before our next major port of call, Tromsø, where you can take part in a very special musical experience, the Arctic Cathedral Midnight Concert.
Day 9 Vesterålen and Lofoten Islands
Ports visited today: Tromsø, Finnsnes, Harstad, Risøyhamn, Sortland, Stokmarknes, Svolvær, Stamsund.
Passing through the Lofoten Islands the ship negotiates a stunning network of inlets and isles, before moving on to what is the highlight of the voyage for many, a possible detour into the spectacular and dramatic Trollfjord. Join us on a fantastic safari by RIB- boat through the Lofoten archipelago under the Midnight Sun!
Day 10 Arctic Circle, Seven Sisters
