Explore the Norwegian coast under the Northern Lights

This is the Norwegian winter adventure you’ve been waiting for. Sailing from Dover, you’ll visit cosy coastal communities and search Arctic skies for Norway’s Northern Lights.

Sail direct from Dover to the best of the Norwegian coast above and below the Arctic Circle. You’ll enjoy adventure under the active Auroral Zone, assured by our Northern Lights Promise of a free voyage if the aurora doesn’t occur. Engage in exciting optional winter excursions while you visit cosy cities, historic towns, and beautiful villages. 

From the White Cliffs of Dover to Norway’s Arctic ... 

Board comfortable MS Maud in Dover bound for Norway. Our first stop is Loen at the foot of Mount Hoven, the summit of which has views of Jostedalsbreen Glacier. We’ll head to the exceptionally pretty fishing villages of Reine and Å in the Lofoten Islands before sailing to Alta, the ‘city of the Northern Lights.’ Perhaps you’ll see the aurora appear above its artistic Northern Lights Cathedral. 

… and back again!  

Discover Tromsø, the ‘Paris of the North’ and its Polar Museum. You’ll learn the importance of this polar city and enjoy optional winter excursions before brushing up on British WWII history in Narvik. We’ll spend two wild days ‘on expedition’ discovering the hidden natural gems of mid-Norway before arriving in the bustling city of Bergen and ride the funicular to the panorama at Mount Fløyen. After soaking up the cosy vibe of Egersund, your expedition will end back where it started in Dover.
