An Arctic adventure of unspoiled beauty, authentic experiences and the Aurora

This 22-day expedition cruise takes you from Dover, England to the Norwegian fjords on an epic hunt to see the Northern Lights .

Visit UNESCO sites Bryggen and Hjørundfjorden in Norway, and see UNESCO-protected townhouses along the Grachtengordel canals.

Meet local communities in hidden idyllic spots only can reach, and keep an eye out for the wildlife – especially Tromsø’s humpback whales.

Our Norwegian cruise takes us on a quest to see the Northern Lights. With more than ten days above the Arctic Circle, the chances of experiencing this cosmic phenomenon are as good as they get.

Off the beaten track

Visit beautiful cities, towns and villages in the Netherlands and Norway, as well as incredible landscapes and unforgettable blue fjords. Thanks to the smaller size of our cruise ship, you’ll visit places few others ever see.

Enjoy winter activities

Join optional snowshoeing, kayaking and hiking expeditions, surrounded by natural wonders and meeting local communities along the way.
