The cruise at a glance

The Olsen Way Highlights

While cruising in the Arctic Ocean from the comfort of Bolette and ashore during an extended stay in Alta, you may be lucky enough to see the Aurora Borealis illuminate the night sky. Alta is also ideally placed for tours that take you into the wilderness, where you can meet local Sami communities and learn about their way of life. In Tromsø, ‘Gateway to the Arctic’, you can visit the iceberg-shaped Arctic Cathedral and capture winter panoramas from atop Mount Storsteinen. This shorter than usual sailing is possible thanks to Bolette’s speed and Newcastle’s closer proximity to Norway.

Husky dogs sledding, Norway

A Husky Sledding adventure

 

From Alta you’ll have the unique opportunity to embark on a Husky sledding adventure and immerse yourself in the beauty of the Nordic nature. You’ll ride into the wilderness and journey through pine forests following the banks of the Alta River or Altadalen Valley. You’ll also have the chance to learn about how the Huskies are trained and prepared for Europe’s longest dog sled race.
