Day 1: Southampton, UK
Arrive at Southampton and board Norwegian Spirit for your 12 night journey around Norway and the Arctic.
Day 3: Stavanger, Norway
Arrive at the port of Stavanger - gateway to the majestic Lysefjord. Meander through the cobbled streets lined with white-washed wooden houses and see artists at work in the old quarter. Visit the 12th-century Stavanger Cathedral and marvel at its vaulted ceiling and 13th-century Gothic chancel. Stop by the Norwegian Canning Museum to appreciate the town's heritage as the 'herring capital' of Norway.
Day 4: Trondheim, Norway
Today gives you another opportunity to explore the city of Trondheim. The city walk through Trondheim is a journey through its 1000-year history. Back on board, the ship heads out of the majestic Trondheimsfjord, which is 170 kilometres long and up to 25 kilometres wide. Like all other Norwegian fjords it is deep, 577 metres at most. As we sail along the coast you’ll realise the importance of fish to Norwegian coastal communities. Kristiansund’s location has provided the town with a wealth of opportunities in the fishing, shipbuilding and oil industries. This town is now regarded as Norway’s ‘cured cod capital’ because of its long time export of salted dry fish. Here you can join a trip to the Atlantic Road, one of Norway’s most visited tourist destinations. As we cross the open sea to Molde, known as the ‘city of roses’, you will notice the steep, grey, pointed peaks of the Romsdal Alps.
Day 5: Cruise Svartisen Glacier (At Sea)
Day 6: Hammerfest, Norway
The town of Hammerfest is located on the north-western coast of the island of Kvaloya in Norway’s Finnmark County. The world's northernmost town; Hammerfest boasts an ice-free harbour and is home to the impressive Hammerfest Church. Learn about the life of the local polar bears at Royal and Ancient Polar Bear Society or explore local history after WWII at Museum of Reconstruction and the UNESCO-listed Meridian Column. Get active with a zigzag walk up Salen Hill to admire town-wide views and beyond. No visit here would be complete without sampling authentic Sami food, fresh sushi, or traditional Norwegian seafood.
Day 7: Honningsvag, Norway
Honningsvag is your gateway to Norway's North Cape on Magerøya Island. This is the northernmost point in Europe, and the true land of the midnight sun. From mid-May to July, the full disc of the sun never dips below the horizon. In winter, the days barely lighten to a spectral gloom. To the north lies only the remote Svalbard Archipelago, Jan Mayan Island, and the polar ice cap. From the cliffs of North Cape, perched 1,000 feet above the Arctic Ocean, one stares into the arctic silence. During the summer months, vast reindeer herds roam Magerøya Island's treeless, central plateau.
Day 9: Geiranger, Norway
The ship then drops anchor at Geiranger on the shores of UNESCO World Heritage site, Geirangerfjord. Stroll into the village to view the church and sample reindeer and brown goat’s cheese in a local eatery. Enjoy a boat trip along the fjord for close up views of the famous Seven Sisters and Suitor waterfalls. Venture further afield to explore local farm life at the interactive Norwegian Fjord Centre or take a trip up to the scenic viewpoints at Dalsnibba or Eagle's Bend.
Day 10: Flam, Norway
Flam is a tiny village on the banks of Aurlandsfjord, and is set in beautiful surroundings. Visit the local church, one of the oldest in Norway, and enjoy the traditionally decorated walls. Cruise through the Naeroyfjord, a narrow but spectacular fjord surrounded by steep valleys and snow-covered peaks; Naeroyfjord has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2005. Along the way you'll see Gudvangen, an old Viking village, which will take your breath away with its dramatic and stunning scenery.
Day 11: Haugesund, Norway
Discover the city of Haguesund, at the point where the fjords flow into the North Sea in the southwest of Norway. Haugesund is famed as 'Norway's Birthplace' and also boasts a proud Viking heritage, brought to life at Avaldsnes' Nordvegen History Centre on the nearby island of Karmoy. This vibrant city also hosts a few cultural and musical festivals throughout the year, the most famous being the Norwegian International Film Festival and Sildajazz Festival. Akrafjord and the Langfoss Waterfall are also within easy reach — nominated one of the ten most beautiful waterfalls in the world by CNN.
