New Year in the Far North
Join us on a very special winter and New Year’s cruise to the famous landmarks and hidden gems of Northern Norway.
On this Norwegian cruise you will explore a truly unique natural world. Northern Norway is wild, rugged and like nowhere else on Earth. The landscape is ceaselessly varied, unspoiled, magnificent, awe-inspiring, beautiful…you will run out of adjectives to describe this unforgettable place.
The weather in the Arctic might be crisp and clear, and It may also snow heavily at times. We work with the conditions and adapt our programmes as we go, with safety always first and foremost on this Norway holiday.
Wildlife and Northern Lights
Whales approach Norwegian shores this time of year to feed on herring, so we will keep a sharp eye out for them from deck. We hope to experience the magical Northern Lights, with the short daylight hours of fantastic colours giving way to beautiful shades of evening blue as a search for the Aurora begins.
We will sail from Tromsø with MS Spitsbergen, visiting settlements and villages rich with fishing traditions, Sami history and polar expedition heritage. We will celebrate the New Year in Honningsvåg, the capital of the North Cape. We will make sure to enjoy the brief daylight and we are hoping for crisp and clear nights and days. As evening falls, all eyes will turn to the skies as we hunt for the unforgettable Northern Lights.
