The Original Norwegian Coastal Express

We’ve sailed the Norwegian coast since 1893, faithfully serving communities and showing international guests our home for almost 130 years. Come with us to experience the authentic, everyday life of the coast.

The Voyage

Our signature voyage along the Norwegian coast travels from the southern city of Bergen, across the Arctic Circle, up to Kirkenes, and back. It’s 12 days and 2,500 nautical miles of some of the most stunning scenery you’ve ever seen. 

Norway’s world-famous fjords will be on full display, dotted with farms and charming fishing villages. Admire the mountains and myths of the Helgeland Coast and brace yourself for the sheer beauty of the idyllic Lofoten and Vesterålen islands.  

Along the way, your ship stops at 34 coastal communities, big and small, day and night. We dock in villages and towns for 10 to 45 minutes, and cities for a few hours. Ports we visit at night on the northbound section of the voyage can be seen during the day southbound.  

You can even decide to do the northbound voyage from Bergen to Kirkenes over seven days one time, and the six-day south voyage another. We also offer short two to five-day voyages and specific port-to-port bookings.

The Seasons

Will you come in spring when there’s both sun and snow to enjoy? Or will you arrive in autumn when forests along the coast turn crimson and gold? During this season, our ships also detour to Hjørundfjord, hidden amid the Sunnmøre Alps. Between late May and early August, north of the Arctic Circle is the realm of the Midnight Sun, 24 hours of glorious summer sunshine. These are also the months when we sail into Geirangerfjord, which deserves its place as one of Norway’s eight UNESCO sites. The dark skies of winter in Norway form the backdrop for the legendary Northern Lights. Your ship will be your floating observatory; away from light pollution on land and travelling into the Arctic, directly under the consistently active Auroral Oval.
