Our Bergen to Kirkenes Cruise is the classic voyage north offering great views of the changing landscape

A classic Norway fjords cruise experience. The Bergen to Kirkenes Cruise is very popular among travellers who may not have time for the full round voyage but wish to enjoy watching the gradual transitions from the populated, lush southern regions of the coastline to the more sparse landscapes north of the Arctic Circle.

The magnificent Norwegian coastline is home to some of the most captivating scenery in the world, as well as a range of charming towns and villages. Of course, as you head further and further north, and especially once you're inside the Arctic Circle, you can add the exceptional opportunity of witnessing the Northern Lights to your list of things to experience if you embark later in the year. Discover a range of exhilarating pursuits on your journey north and enjoy the ultimate voyage of discovery with this Bergen to Kirkenes Cruise!

    A perfect start to the second day of our Bergen to Kirkenes Cruise is an early arrival at the enchanting Art Nouveau town of Ålesund, which is situated across several islands at the entrance to Geirangerfjord. On departures between 15 April and 14 September the ship will sail into the magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Site of Geirangerfjord, where tumbling waterfalls, rugged cliffs and majestic mountains are mirrored in the deep still water. Here we have the opportunity to join excursions ashore and weave through hairpin bends to overlook one of the world’s longest fjords.

  • Day 7 - Reach Kirkenes

    Reach Kirkenes

    The vistas become more dramatic as your Bergen to Kirkenes Cruise reaches the finale of the northbound voyage here in the far reaches of Europe. Benefiting from the warm currents of the Gulf Stream, this region is rich in sea life, and the coast is largely ice free in winter allowing ships access to most harbours. Soon we reach Kirkenes, from where the emotive border with Russia a few kilometres away or the Sami communities of Northern Finland may be visited. Here the Bergen to Kirkenes Cruise bids farewell to passengers travelling northbound only, and welcomes those joining for the southbound voyage.
