Norway: Arctic Voyage to the Northern Lights - Direct Charter
Let the Aurora Borealis lure you to Arctic Norway
Take in the sensational sights of Arctic Norway on a three-night voyage, followed by a two-night stay at a comfortable hotel in the lively city of Tromsø. During the Arctic Voyage to the Northern Lights, you will visit the coastal settlements of Hammerfest, Honningsvåg and Kirkenes, before returning to Tromsø. In each port of call, embark on excursions that aim to educate you about the lifestyle and culture of the native Sámi people, as well as giving you opportunities to see more of the fascinating Norwegian landscapes and the wildlife that inhabits them.
Being above the Arctic Circle for the entire duration of your holiday, you will always be in a prime position for spotting the Aurora Borealis. Given a crisp, clear and cloud-free night, you could be treated to a magnificent display on your Arctic Voyage from the Northern Lights. If they happen to appear late at night during your time aboard the ship, you can request a wake-up call to alert you to their presence. While you are in Tromsø, you can even actively go in search of the Aurora on snowmobiles or dog sledding excursions that take you out of the city and towards the mountains. Discover more about the phenomena at Tromsø’s museums and art galleries during your free time in the city.
