Description

On this two-week cruise to Northern Norway, you may be fortunate enough to see the ethereal lights of the Aurora Borealis illuminate the night sky while cruising in the Arctic Ocean and ashore during extended stays in Tromsø and Alta. After visiting Ålesund and sailing past Torghatten, the mountain with a hole through its centre, you can experience the entertaining maritime tradition of crossing the Arctic Circle. Enjoy an overnight stay in the ‘Gateway to the Arctic’, Tromsø, before heading to Alta, ideal for husky sledding tours and spending time with local Sámi people to learn about their way of life. Elsewhere, you will have the chance to explore the rugged Vesterålen archipelago and the hanseatic city of Bergen. Wrap up warm and join astronomers from Go Stargazing, who will enjoy taking you through the many different planets in the night sky, and showing you constellations on a laser-guided session from the decks of Borealis.
