Norway: Northern Lights Norway Cruises
A voyage that exceeds conventional cruising
Sail across icy waters above the Arctic Circle on this outstanding cruise along the striking Norwegian coastline. Look to the dark winter sky in anticipation of the appearance of the Northern Lights on Norway cruises. Although these mind-blowing phenomena are dictated by nature and sightings are not assured, this magical voyage guides you to vantage points at the best possible times. However, the Aurora Borealis are only one element of this breathtaking journey. On deck, breathe in the clean fresh air of the open seas and let the enchantment of the unspoilt scenery wash over you. There is also a Panorama Lounge on board the ship where you can watch the unfolding vistas in a warm and sociable environment.
On Northern Lights Norway cruises there is a selection of enticing excursions to take part in at the major ports of call, however, these are optional if you would prefer to explore more independently. Travel to the Russian border, gaze out towards the North Pole on a trip to the North Cape or visit the impressive Snow Hotel at Kirkenes.
