Facts, Food and Photos
Specialists in a variety of topics, our expedition teams will be your hosts on board, taking the lead on optional lectures ranging from natural phenomena, botany, wildlife, and glaciology to fishing traditions, Viking history, and local lore. In addition to more traditional presentations, whenever weather permits, the expedition team also deliver out-on-deck guiding at special points of interest along the sailing route.
These sessions may sometimes be combined with tastings of seasonal local specialties, such as fresh shrimps in the Lyngenfjord in spring, cloudberries during autumn, freshly cooked fishcakes for winter, or "Trollsoup" in the summer when we sail into the Trollfjord.
The expedition team will also get involved with the traditional Arctic Circle crossing rituals and draw special attention to natural phenomena, namely the Northern Lights in winter and the Midnight Sun in summer. As Canon-certified photographers, the expedition team also offer expert tips and tricks to capture these photogenic moments.
