Classic Winter Voyages

from $1,026 per person

A 6-, 7-, 11-, or 12-day winter expedition voyage along the coast of Norway is an amazing experience. In winter, you will enjoy several onboard activities and lectures where the Arctic light is the main element.

  • Cross the Arctic Circle and have an opportunity to see the northern lights
  • Explore the gateway to the Arctic, Tromsø
  • Enjoy a wide selection of exciting and interesting excursions, such as the Husky Adventure, Meet the Vikings, Polar History Walk, Snowmobiling, and the Snowhotel
  • Several onboard activities and lectures where the Arctic light is the main element

Winter is perhaps the most special time to explore the wild and untamed Norwegian scenery. The landscape is covered in white snow and the air is fresh, pure and crisp. Clusters of cosy houses glow on the shores like embers. The stunning backdrop of snow-clad mountains reflects the polar twilight.

Sailing with Hurtigruten to Norway’s northern reaches, you can experience a magical winter wonderland and hopefully see the mesmerizing aurora borealis, the northern lights. For thousands of years, locals, visitors, artists, and scientists in the northern part of the world have marvelled at the spectacular displays that occasionally light up the night sky. Sailing with Hurtigruten will provide the best chances of experiencing the magic color show as it changes from light green to dark purple and flickers across the Arctic sky.
