A unique trip combining the highlights of the Norwegian winter. Orcas, Humpback whales and the Northern lights.
Expedition Cruise Norway
Witnessing the Aurora Borealis is an unforgettable experience. Visit Northern Norway in winter and combine seeing this natural light show with the trip of a lifetime. Sail through the beautiful fjords on board one of our comfortable expedition vessels, and see orcas and humpback whales chasing large schools of herring. This is a yearly wildlife spectacle from November until February that draws numerous whales to the deep fjords of Northern Norway. During our expedition cruise in Northern Norway we hope to see many orcas and whales, and if the weather is favourable, you will get the opportunity to snorkel with them.
Our Cruises in Northern Norway depart from Tromsø, the gateway to the Arctic situated 350km above the Arctic circle. From here we venture of into the Norwegian fjords to find the most beautiful spots Northern Norway has to offer. On our expedition cruise we pass snow-capped mountains, remote fishing villages and beautiful islands, while at night we gaze at the skies to see the dancing Northern Lights.
This expedition cruise in Northern Norway takes you off the beaten path to places where only small expedition vessels can come. Our ships only take a maximum of 22 passengers on board, creating a cosy and personal atmosphere. Choose the vessel that suits your preferences, going from comfortable expedition style to spacious and luxurious.
Tromsø in Northern Norway is easily accessible by plane from most European countries.
