Witness spectacular fjords, pristine glaciers, and thrilling wildlife on an expedition cruise from Dover to Norway and the Svalbard archipelago.

Norway’s beautiful coast

Sailing from Dover, you’ll head straight for the Norwegian coast and explore dramatic and enchanting fjords like Trollfjord, Hjørundfjord and Sognefjord. You’ll visit remote fishing villages in the Lofoten Islands, and the historic cities of Bergen and Tromsø to learn more about Norway, its history, people and culture. You’ll also marvel at the breathtaking mountains and glaciers which serve as the perfect backdrop along the way.

Wild and remote Svalbard archipelago

We have unmatched experience in Svalbard, dating back as far as 1896. You’ll see a range of Arctic birdlife on Bear Island and be on the lookout for elusive polar bears at Hornsund. Isfjord boasts dramatic landscapes while Bellsund offers history and beauty in equal measure.

On this exciting expedition cruise, sea ice and weather conditions may make certain landings a challenge. That’s an authentic part of being on an adventure but rest assured that we’ll always take you to the best places available for the best experience possible.
