A boat cruise to see Norway

This popular cruise in Scandinavia is an unforgettable journey along the Norwegian coast where you will experience a breathtaking holiday in the northern parts of Norway. From Bergen, the gateway to the fjords, you will cruise north to Kirkenes, along the way visit some of the world’s most beautiful scenic locations, cross the Arctic Circle and sail around the North Cape plateau, at the very top of Europe, during the daytime. 

Explore the best of Norway on the world’s most beautiful costal voyage.



Your coastal adventure begins in Bergen, a city surrounded by its famed seven mountains. Before departure you may wish to explore this cultural gateway to the fjords by wandering the cobblestone alleyways, visiting the fish markets or ride the funicular up Mt Floyen for magnificent views over the city. This evening as the ship sets sail, enjoy a tasty dinner based on the best ingredients from the coast. Spend the rest of the evening relaxing as you take in the spectacular landscapes, either from deck or in the panorama lounges.

Meals included: Dinner



After the first night on board, you can start the day by waving to Havila Kystruten’s head office near Torvik. In Ålesund, a rare harmonious Art Nouveau town awaits with beautiful brick houses and sea stalls, and in the summer season you can continue on to the world heritage fjord Geirangerfjorden with its steep mountain sides and wild waterfalls.
*Geiranger is visited 01.06-31.08 / **Hjørundfjorden/Urke is visited 01.09-31.10

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner



Today wake up near beautiful Trondheim, founded by the Viking King Olav Tryggvason over a thousand years ago. The landmark in the city is the Nidaros Cathedral; Norway’s national shrine and one of Northern Europe’s largest cathedrals. In the afternoon the ship heads out of the fjord into a teeming archipelago and towards northern Norway.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner



On this stretch, we mark that you cross the Arctic Circle and travel into the Arctic realm. That means summer with the midnight sun, while winter has night-black days – and evenings with the northern lights. Nature here is powerful with Northern Scandinavia’s largest glacier, the world’s strongest tidal current and encounters with the majesty of the air; the sea eagle. In the evening Lofoten awaits with fishing villages, steep mountains and Vikings.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner



The voyage continues through narrow fjords and wild mountains to Tromsø, a city characterised by fishing culture, polar expeditions and daring. It is also the land of the Sami, Norway’s indigenous people and blends with its modern status of the Paris of the North. Tromso has a range of restaurants and shopping, along with many natural and cultural attractions.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner



After brief early stops in Hammerfest and Havøysund you will arrive in Honningsvåg, the gateway to the spectacular North Cape. There is lots of traffic in the harbour in Honningsvåg with fishermen who come here to deliver the catch, and tourists come to experience the North Cape. In the evening, pass the rock landmark Finnkirka (“The Finn Church”) on the approach to Kjøllefjord, the innermost part of the fjord which has been a safe haven for fishermen, Sami and traders for the last 500 years.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner



Early birds can see Vadsø and just after breakfast the ship arrives in Kirkenes, where your coastal voyage ends. Should you like to have some extra Arctic experiences while you are here, we offer several exciting tours, experiences and excursions in our pre and post programme.

Meals included: Breakfast

Every day there are shore excursions befitting the season of travel, that you may join. We recommend these experiences which will enhance your coastal journey as you interact more closely with the culture, nature and people of Norway.
