We offer five cultural sailings in spring and five in autumn. Experience Norwegian culture at its best, either when the coastline awakens after a long winter or during the autumn gold. Sailing along the coast, there are several exciting cultural activities to participate in, both on board the ships and ashore.
Some of our concerts will be set in unusual surroundings and the on-board activities will trigger all of your senses, being a mix of lectures, concerts and tastings of scrumptious specialties sourced along the areas we visit.
Music to your ears
No Norwegian cultural voyage would be complete without concerts celebrating the mesmerizing music of Norway’s famous classical composer Edvard Grieg. Enjoy a series of live concerts of Grieg and other musical artists both onboard and ashore in unique venues such as a cave, a mine, and even an old industrial fish-oil tank!
We’ve been exploring Norway’s coast and culture for 123 years, so the insights we bring our guests in the form of lectures and on-deck presentations are truly priceless. It’ll be our pleasure to introduce you to Norway’s traditions, history, industry, folklore, native Sámi, and many other gems of precious knowledge.
Norway’s Coastal Kitchen
The delectable dishes we serve on board our ships are traditional, fresh, and homely. We take great pride in sourcing our ingredients straight from the surrounding sea and landscape. Flavours are skilfully preserved, enhanced, and presented by our talented team of chefs, be it the buffet or the refined à la carte dining option.
Easy on the eyes
Your eyes will be in for a true treat with the breathtaking panoramas of Norway’s famous fjords and mountains. These magnificent views are captured in paintings on display in local art galleries which can be visited as part of the cultural voyage. Each ship also has its own collection of art on board, to further inspire your inner explorer.
