Summer Cruise Offer

See the majestic Torghatten ‘mountain with the hole’, one of Norway’s most astonishing natural wonders; glide alongside the lofty, snow-capped peaks of the Seven Sisters; and cross the Arctic Circle en-route to the land of the midnight sun, calling at picturesque ports to experience endless days as the mesmerising summer solstice reaches its peak.

Experience the lifestyle of the indigenous Sami people and discover the UNESCO-listed prehistoric rock carvings at Hjemmeluft from Alta; and cruise to the North Cape – Europe’s northernmost point – in overnight sunlight to spot native Arctic seabirds, enjoy delicious, locally caught King Crab and admire the stunning ocean scenery. In Tromsø you could visit the amazing Arctic cathedral; or perhaps ride the cable car to discover incredible scenic views of the gorgeous surrounding landscape, while in Trondheim historic sites such as the Nidarosdomen – the world's northernmost medieval cathedral – await discovery.
