In Search of 'The Lights' in Eight Nights
Boudicca • D1904 • Prices from £1,099.00 (cruise only)
Newcastle’s closer proximity to Norway means it’s the perfect departure point for this short, yet rewarding escape. After spending just two days at sea – plenty of time to settle into comfortable surroundings of your home-from-home at sea – you will arrive in Bodø. Situated on the beautiful Kystriksveien Coastal Route, this historic town boasts breathtaking rugged scenery, quaint fishing villages and skies populated by soaring Sea Eagles. Take the day to explore at your leisure before enjoying a magical evening on board Boudicca, when there is a chance you will get to marvel at the vibrant colours of the Aurora Borealis – Mother Nature’s spellbinding light show – while wrapped up warm on the ship’s decks.
An abundance of unique Arctic sights and experiences will await you in Tromsø. Highlights to tick off your ‘must-visit’ list include the iconic iceberg-shaped Arctic Cathedral and the Polaria Centre; while the chance to ride a cable car up Mount Storsteinen and admire the unspoilt views from the top is not to be missed. For a simply unforgettable experience, take a husky-sledding ride from the ‘Gateway to the Arctic’ through the flawless wilderness surrounding the city. Whatever you choose to do in Tromsø, you can look forward to spending the evening going in search of the Northern Lights aboard Boudicca once again when you depart. Lastly, a call into Narvik will present your final opportunity to encounter Arctic Norway’s stunning scenery. Opt for a sledding or snowmobiling adventure, or perhaps visit the Polar Nature Park for the chance to see many breeds of Norwegian and Arctic animals, including wolves.
