As summer fades, the first cool evenings summon the colours of autumn. The fresh and clear coastal air enhances the intense red and yellow that fills mountainsides, hilltops and woods. From the deck, you may see the sharp profiles of the highest peaks sprinkled with the first snow, against the background of an ice blue sky. Gradually, the evenings get darker and the days shorter. With a bit of luck, the Northern Lights will appear and give you a magic experience.
Come closer to Norwegian culture
Each port and the different parts of the coast give you the opportunity to experience something different. Our numerous on board activities and exciting shore excursions take you closer to cultural life, old traditions and local inhabitants. Sailing north of the Arctic Circle, means sailing in the heart of Lapland where you can learn more about Sami culture. You can take part in several exciting culturale outings, like seeing the Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, meeting the Vikings in Lofoten or exploring UNESCO listed Bryggen in Bergen. We also offer hikes, RIB adventures and ATV/Quad safaris to the Russian border if you prefer more action filled experiences.
Visit a place that has fascinated visitors for centuries
Our northbound autumn sailings include a visit to the incredibly beautiful Hjørundfjord. Majestic mountains surround this narrow fjord, and we offer several excursions that let you explore this spectacular area.
Real food experiences
Autumn is harvesting time all over Norway, and you get a chance to taste local specialties like reindeer meat and cloudberries on deck. Our seasonal menu offers the best local produce from the areas we sail through, like reindeer from Finnmark, salmon from Skjervøy and apples from the fjords. Nature’s pantry is full of delicacies ready for harvesting, and our on board menu, activities and excursions reflect this.
