Classic Winter Voyages

A winter expedition cruise along the coast of Norway is a beautiful experience. The landscape is covered in pure white snow; the air is fresh, pure and crisp. Clusters of cosy houses glow on the shores like embers, and the stunning backdrop of snow-clad mountains reflects the polar twilight. Enjoy a 6, 7, 11 or 12 day Classic Voyage with us to experience this beautiful season.
