The cruise at a glance
The Olsen Way Highlights
Our team has designed this cruise to take you closer to Arctic Norway’s wintertime scenery, as well as giving you chances to seek out the Northern Lights. A full day and evening in Alta, considered one of the best places on earth to see these dancing ribbons of colour, could be the highlight of your adventure. Meeting with the Sami people and experiencing how they have adapted to life in the Arctic wilderness is a great way to learn about the local culture. Your list of destinations includes the likes of Tromsø, known as the ‘Gateway to the Arctic’, and Narvik, a peninsula surrounded by peaks and fjords.Explore the Itinerary
An evening with the Sami
On a tour from Alta you can spend an evening with a traditional Sami community. Sit around the crackling fire and learn about traditions, myths and legends of the Northern Lights. You’ll also hear ‘Joik’ the Sami way of singing and get to try the traditional ‘Siida’ cake.
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.
