Cruise Overview

Add some Norwegian magic to your Christmas and New Year with an expedition cruise along Norway’s beautiful coast, bringing together yuletide traditions and the spectacular Northern Lights.

Add some Norwegian magic to your Christmas and New Year with an expedition cruise along Norway’s beautiful coast – bringing together yuletide traditions and the spectacular Northern Lights in one unique experience.

It’s beginning to look a lot like…

Starting from London (Tilbury), you’ll enjoy a unique Christmas experience on our comfortable expedition ship as we sail to Norway. We’ll celebrate Christmas at sea and reach the wild and spectacular Nordfjord on Boxing Day, where you can explore the picture-perfect village of Loen. Next, in the stunning Lofoten islands, you’ll visit one of the best-preserved traditional fishing villages in Norway.

In the Arctic capital of Tromsø, you’ll learn about its polar history and get the chance to go on some exciting excursions.

Starting the New Year on an adventure

Basking in the light of the Polar Night, we continue north to Narvik and see in the new year in style. As our special New Year’s party reaches its climax and the clock counts down to midnight, you’ll welcome in 2024 in a totally unique way.

We’ll head off the beaten track exploring some of mid-Norway's islands and fjords for two magical days – expedition style! You’ll round off your journey exploring Bergen’s UNESCO-listed Bryggen district and charming Egersund before ending your expedition cruise back where it all began, in London (Tilbury).


We'll help you plan where to go, when to visit and how long to stay
