Itinerary + Map

DAY 1 Bergen
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

DAY 2 Floro - Alesund - Molde
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

DAY 3 Kristiansund - Trondheim - Rørvik
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

DAY 4 Brønnøysund - Lofoten Islands
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

DAY 5 Stokmarknes - Tromso - Skjervøy
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

DAY 6 Hammerfest - Honningsvag - Berlevag
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

DAY 7 Batsfjord – Kirkenes - Berlevag
Early birds can see Vadsø and just after breakfast the ship arrives in the small and multicultural town of Kirkenes. You are now as far east on your voyage as you can go with the border of Russia only a few kilometres away. While here, Kirkenes offers many great arctic experiences. The voyage back south will have short stops in Vardø, Batsfjord and Berlevag. If it's a Monday, listen carefully as you arrive into Berlevag in case you can hear the famous male choir of local fisherman practicing.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

DAY 8 Mehamn - Tromso
Stop in Hammerfest today, founded in 1789, over time it became Norway’s polar capital, serving as a base for hunting expeditions into the high Arctic. Here you can see the UNESCO-listed Meridian Column, erected in 1854 to commemorate the first precise, geographic measurement of the globe. Continue south towith a brief stop at the old trading post ofSkjervøy. Around midnight, dock at Tromsø which is specal in both seasons - winter this is one of the best places to view the Northern Lights, and in Summer the Midnight Sun is the perfect setting for a middle of the night city walk to explore this charming Arctic city.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

DAY 9 Finnsnes - Lofoten Islands
Sail through the island groups of Lofoten and Vesteralen offering some of the most stunning scenery you will see during the entire coastal voyage. Beneath the jagged mountains lie chalky white sandy beaches and fishing villages with a vibrant fishing industry and locals using the coastal ships for everyday trips and transport. Make a short stop in Risøyhamn, a small village with only 200 inhabitants, to deliver passengers, groceries and mail. Continuing southwards, it looks like you are sailing straight into the mountain wall, but inevitably the ship will slip through an opening leading to the narrow Raftsund to reach the spectacular Trollfjord*, only 2km long and 100m wide, surrounded by majestic mountains. If the weather and time permit, the captain makes a detour into the fjord. Steep cliffs hug the ship´s sides and the dramatic landscape conjures fairy tale images of an imaginary land of trolls. To exit the fjord, the ship will rotate 180 degrees on the spot, then sail back out. Remember to look out for sea eagles here too. In the evening, arrive in Svolvær, the capital of Lofoten, home to one of the world's largest cod fisheries.
*Possible in summer only - for the ship to enter the Trollfjord and it is dependent on the right weather conditions.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

DAY 10 Bodo - Brønnøysund - Rorvik
Crossing the Arctic Circle at 66°33’N is an important ‘rite of passage’. As you sail along the Helgeland coast, you pass hundreds of islets, fertile farmland and steep granite walls rich in local lore. On deck you can see the strange mountain Torghatten (rising 258m above sea level), famous for its distinctive hole right through the middle and the Seven Sisters mountain range. Stop this afternoon is in Brønnøysund, located in the middle of the Helgeland Archipelago it is the half way point of the Norwegian coastline, As the crow flies, it is equidistant from here to Lindesnes in the south to the North Cape in the north—840 kilometres each way and is the half way point of the Norwegian coastline.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

DAY 11 Trondheim - Molde
This morning provides an opportunity to explore the picturesque city of Trondheim with its colourful warehouses and the historic Nidaros Cathedral. Back on board, the ship sails along the coast to Kristiansund whose location has steadily provided the town with a wealth of opportunities in the fishing, shipbuilding and oil industries. Kristiansund is today regarded as Norway’s ‘dried cod capital’ because of its long time export of salted dry fish. Experience the ship´s crossing of the open sea on the way to Molde, known as Norway´s ‘City of Roses’.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

DAY 12 Alesund - Bergen
During the night, the ship calls at Alesund, Torvik, Maloy, as the world’s most beautiful voyage draws to a close. Before the ship docks in Bergen, there are some nautical miles of fascinating scenery ahead, including the picturesque Nordfjord below the enormous Jostedal Glacier. In the morning, call at Floro, a modern coastal seaport that is very much alive with a charming high street and good selection of shops. A few nautical miles south of Floro, the ship navigates the mouth of the mighty Sognefjord, and you will get to enjoy superb views of this magnificent island studded coastline en route. Finally, disembark in Bergen, taking with you memories of a unique journey filled with unforgettable experiences and meetings with local people, wildlife and stunning nature. After disembarkation your cruise concludes.
