March to the Northern Lights - ms Trollfjord March 2020

Any Cruise, Anywhere, Any Time

March to the Northern Lights

Oslo - Voss - Bergen to Kirkenes

Awe-inspiring and life-changing. That’s how guests on our record number of winter tours to Norway this year described their experiences in this fairytale, snow-clad world of enchanting villages, lush conifer forests, mighty mountains, epic fjords and the spectacular swirls of colour that waltz above it all – the famed Northern Lights.

In 2020, it’s your turn to immerse yourself in this storybook land of wonders. Our hosted tour through Norway will take you on the famous Flåm Railway high over the alps. You’ll journey through wondrous fjords and sail north beyond the Arctic Circle almost to the Russian border where enchanting reindeer, the thrills of a husky sled ride and a hotel made of ice and snow await. There’s no better place in the world to see Mother Nature’s most dazzling creation – the phenomenal Northern Lights – and each night we’ll scan the skies in search of the world’s greatest light show.

Norway is like nowhere else on Earth and our unique cruise tour is like no other, brimming with more ‘wow’ moments than you’ve ever experienced before. In 2020, we’re enhancing our Nordic adventure even further by offering a new, optional tour to Russia before Norway and an add-on tour to Iceland afterwards. The grand palaces of St Petersburg will take your breath away as will the thundering waterfalls, gigantic glaciers, gushing geysers and boiling hot pools of Iceland.

You’ll return home with unforgettable memories of epic experiences.

We hope you can join us for an adventure of a lifetime.

The cabins are inspired by the traditional hunting and fishing hut, “gamme”, that you find in the wilderness in the Sami areas of the Arctic. The huts are developed along with architects from Switzerland and are equipped as a small jewel; air conditioning, underfloor heating, natural tiles and an exclusive bathroom. The large panoramic window and lounge chairs covered in sheepskins, will ensure you will be very comfortable while looking for northern-lights, from the warmth of your cabin. The huts are equipped with a kettle only, and breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in our restaurant across the path.

There are resident reindeer on the grounds, make sure you go over and say hello!

Add a tour to North Cape in Honningsvag

from $199* pp

The ship arrives in Honningsvåg, the gateway to the spectacular North Cape. An optional excursion to the North Cape plateau puts you at 71°10’21´N, only 2,000 km away from the geographic North Pole. Standing on top the 307-metre high North Cape plateau imparts a sublime sense of being at the end of the world. Nearby is one of the world’s most exciting nature reserves, Gjesværstappan. Join a bird-watching safari to experience Finnmark’s largest flock of puffins, as well as large numbers of kittiwakes. During the nesting season, this area is teeming with life, and mighty sea eagles hover above in search of prey. Meanwhile guillemots, razorbills, cormorants, arctic skuas, northern fulmars, brünnich’s guillemots, and the large northern gannet fill the air with a cacophony of shrieks and screeches.
