Itinerary

Arrive Copenhagen and transfer to your central hotel.

Breakfast at your hotel and day at leisure in Copenhagen. Copenhagen’s a charming city with a thousand years of history. These are the same medieval streets; the same streets walked on by every generation of the world’s oldest royal family, the same streets and canals which have inspired artists for centuries and been home and workplace to meticulous craftsmen and famous designers. The city offers many attractions such as the famous Tivoli amusement park, the statue of the Little Mermaid, the Gefion Fountain, the Royal Palace Amalienborg and many more. Copenhagen is also famous for its cafes and bakeries. Your guided sightseeing tour will take in the must see sights.

Check out and travel to Stockholm by train.

Built on 14 islands, in Stockholm you’re never far from the water. Sights of interest are the Vasa Museum, the Skansen Open Air Museum, City Hall, the Old Town (Gamla Stan) and much more. Join your guide after breakfast for a tour of the must see sights.

Day at leisure until later afternoon transfer to the port for your overnight cruise to Helsinki. The route is a scenic one weaving around the myriads of islands which form the Finnish Archipelago.

Arrive Helsinki mid morning. Helsinki’s an easy and compact city to move around and this morning you take a sightseeing tour of the most interesting parts of the city. Visit the historical centre, the City Hall, the Parliament buildings, Finlandia Hall and the Opera House. See the Sibelius Monument and Temppeliaukio Church (Rock Church). Afternoon at leisure.

Check out from your hotel, transfer to the airport and fly to Ivalo (flight not included). Transfer to your hotel situated in the wilderness of Lapland.

One of the best ways to explore your pristine surrounds is by snowshoes. Join your guide today for a snowshoe walk and along the way, they will stop to talk about Lapland nature and life.

This evening it’s time to experience the exhilaration of snowmobiling. Travelling away from the resort, you’ll be looking for open areas which viewing the Northern Lights is optimal. The driving distance depends on the weather conditions and depending on Nature, the sky could fill with Northern Lights.

Dreaming of being a husky musher? Well today is the day for the chance to give it a go with a visit to the husky farm. After meeting the hardworking huskies – who pull up to five times their weight without any effort – it’s time to drive your own husky team with a passenger seated in the sleigh. It’s a pretty speedy ride so hold on to your beanie!

This morning we meet Lapland’s most loved animal – reindeers! After a talk on reindeer husbandry and an opportunity to ‘lasso’ a reindeer, set off on a sedate sleigh ride through the snow laden forest. Sit back, relax and drink in the quietness and beauty of your pristine surroundings. To end off a perfect experience, enjoy tasty soup and hot drinks around the fire.

If you’re up for testing your balance skills this afternoon then trying cross country skiing is the challenge. All equipment will be supplied and after some instruction from your guide on skiing techniques, you’ll have plenty of time to practise and hone your skills.

Your final night in this beautiful environment and what better way to round it off than by doing another search for the Northern Lights? Seated in a sleigh drawn by a snowmobile, travel through the wilderness to a special Aurora camp site. Seated around the fire with hot drinks, your guide will tell you about the Lights and Nature willing, the sky will fill with this unique phenomenon.

Check out and transfer by road to Kirkenes.

Check out and transfer to the port for the start of your cruise to Bergen. NB: Cruise cost not included in pricing as this depends on category selected and availability.

After crossing Varangerfjord, the ship docks in Vardo, Norway’s easternmost port. Continuye along the Varanger peninsula to Batsfjord before reaching Berlevag in the evening.

Stop at Hammerfest – the world’s most northerly city in the world – before the ship continues to Tromsø where you have the change to attend the midnight concert at the Arctic Cathedral.

The ship negotiates an intricate network of isles and inlets as you pass through the legendary Lofoten Islands, one of the most beautiful stretches of the Norwegian coastline. You have the option of making an overland excursion frm the Harstad to Scotland (at an additional cost), where you rejoin the ship before experiencing the highlight of the voyage for many – a possible detour into the spectacular and dramatic Trollfjord. This remarkable day ends with an evening stop at Svolvaer before you bid farewell to the islands at Stamsund.

Enter a world of legends and folklore as you cross the Arctic Circle and sail past the famed peaks of the Seven Sisters. You also have a chance to enjoy the award winning museum at Rorvik. Bodø

Early arrival in Trondheim to explore the medieval city or visit the Nidaros Cathedral. The ship leaves the Trondheimfjord and continues past Hitra Island, stopping briefly at Kristiansun and Molde before making a midnight call at Ålesund.

Your wonderful cruise down the Norwegian coast draws to a close today with arrival in Bergen mid afternoon. Transfer to your hotel
