Day 1 Tromsø, the gateway to the Arctic

Fly from the UK to Tromsø, the Gateway to the Arctic, and perhaps enjoy the sights of this lively, compact city before boarding the ship and departing late in the afternoon. (Dinner on board)

Day 2 Honningsvåg and the North Cape

Following the scenic sailing through Magerøysund and after an early stop in Hammerfest, you arrive in Honningsvåg. This small port is the gateway to the wonders of the spectacular North Cape (optional excursion). At 71° 10’ 21” N it puts you a mere 2,000 kilometres from the Geographical North Pole. This evening, you pass Finnkirka, a rock formation that is sacred to the indigenous Sami people and now also the site of an impressive light show. (Breakfast and dinner included)

Day 3 Kirkenes, the voyage turning point

The last port on the Voyage North is Kirkenes. And at longitude 30° E, you are actually further east than Istanbul and St. Petersburg. The terrain, culture and geography of Kirkenes offer the opportunity to take part in some fabulous Arctic excursions. Departing Kirkenes at lunchtime, you retrace your steps along the Varanger peninsula reaching Berlevåg in the evening. (Breakfast and dinner included). 

Day 4 Hammerfest and Tromsø

Your first major stop of the day is Hammerfest. Here, you can enjoy an optional excursion including a visit to Hammerfest's UNESCO World Heritage site, the Meridian Column, commemorating the conclusion of Struve's historical measurement of the globe. From here, you next major stop will be Tromsø where your voyage comes to an end. Transfer to your hotel for an overnight stay. (Breakfast and dinner included). 

Day 5 Final Day - or Extend Your Trip

After breakfast in your hotel this morning, a choice of winter excursions are available before you are transferred to Tromsø airport for your direct flight back to the UK (Breakfast included). 

Extend your stay and take in more of Tromsø!

Extend your stay in this lively and colourful city, surrounded by the dramatic Lyngen Alps. Tromsø has many sights to offer, including Arctic history, architecture, culture and exciting excursions. Visit a coastal farm and enjoy reindeer sledging or perhaps visit the Polaris centre. An extra day in Tromsø will give you time to enjoy this beautiful city and more time to watch out for the Northern Lights. 

Day 6 Depart

Further excursions are available before your flight back to the UK. (Breakfast included).
