Alongside being a regular reporter on The One Show, she is currently seen broadcasting live weather bulletins daily! She’s been highly praised and recognised by the Television and Radio Industry Club, winning the award for best weather presenter no less than nine times. Along with all this, Carol is also an extraordinary writer with two best-selling novels with the third coming out in July 2023.

Aurora adventures 

Between October and March is the best time to see the Northern Lights. Spending five nights above the Arctic Circle offers even better odds of seeing one of nature’s most dazzling phenomena. It’s also the perfect time to enjoy a host of winter activities against the backdrop of Norway’s breathtaking scenery. 

Tradition and charm 

You'll cruise along enchanting Norwegian fjords visiting charming towns and cities, and exploring up close and in comfort aboard MS Maud. Discover Norway's coastal communities and local culture with our Expedition Team.
