Voyage Itinerary

From the Norwegian Coast to Spitsbergen

Day 1:Bergen

When you arrive in Bergen, you have some time to explore the town. After navigating through some beautiful coastal landscape, we arrive in Ålesund and can admire the Art Nouveau architecture here. In Trondheim, be sure to enjoy the views from the Old Town Bridge and Nidaros Cathedral. After crossing the Arctic Circle we enter the narrow Raftsund after a possible detour to the famous Trollfjord. The coastal voyage ends in Tromsø. Enjoy this lively city and spend the night in a central hotel.

Day 2:Bergen

The 12-day Classic Roundtrip Voyage starts in Bergen, a city surrounded by seven mountains. Before your departure, you may wish to explore this cultural gateway to the fjords.

Day 3:Florø - Molde

We continue north to Ålesund, a beautiful town filled with perfect examples of Art Nouveau architecture. If you travel in summer or autumn there is a fjord experience to behold, during the winter we fascinate you with our expert-led lectures about the aurora borealis, the northern lights.

Day 4:Kristiansund - Rørvik

The architecture and surroundings in Trondheim create a beautiful and almost-mythical setting, whether you are exploring the city by foot, bike, or boat. Kayak on the river Nid and into the city’s smaller channels, or take a guided tour to discover the city’s most striking features.

Day 5:Tromsø

Get ready for a day full of exciting activities, whatever the season! Visiting Risøyhamn, Harstad, Finnsnes, and the capital of the Arctic, Tromsø, you can join several excursions such as whale watching, Husky dog sledding, polar history walks, mountain hikes, and kayaking. Spend 1-night in Tromsø before continuing your adventure to Spitsbergen.

Day 6:Arctic Adventure, Spitsbergen

Fly from Tromsø to Longyearbyen. There are many ways to experience and explore Spitsbergen’s stunning natural wonders: on snowshoes, by snowmobile, dog sled or boat.
