Cruise Overview

Norway Cruise — Ultimate Norway – Arctic Expedition under the Northern Lights

A flexible-itinerary Arctic Norway expedition during the “winter wonderland” season—the best time to see the northern lights and enjoy winter activities.

An all-inclusive adventure, with activities including hiking, kayaking, nature landings in small expedition boats, community visits, fishing, snowshoeing and whale spotting.

On Expedition in an Arctic Winter Wonderland

Setting out from Tromsø, we’ll set out to explore four spectacular regions during the enchanting winter season aboard the perfect expedition vessel: MS Spitsbergen. As we spend an exciting week witnessing the glacial majesty of the Lyngen Alps, the dramatic beauty of the Lofoten Islands, the forested mountains of Vesterålen and the serenity of Senja, you’ll see snow-frosted mountains, deep blue fjords, charming fishing villages and—with luck—the magical northern lights.

Set a Course for Adventure with the True Norway Experts

We’ve been sailing Norway’s coast since 1896, and nobody knows it like we do. Using our expertise and with a flexible itinerary, we’ll head out to the best and most beautiful islands and beaches in our small expedition boats. Here you’ll enjoy activities such as snowshoeing, hiking and kayaking. What’s more, three unique and bespoke adventures mean you’ll experience a beach bonfire under the stars, a Nordic sauna and polar plunge, and an after-hours heritage dinner at a museum reserved exclusively for us.
