Beginning in the far north reaches of Europe, this Kirkenes to Bergen Cruise travels south and west along coastal Norway following a route established over a hundred years ago. You'll visit medieval towns and remote fishing villages, seeing majestic fjords and dramatic mountainscapes. You'll spot fabulous wildlife, see the world famous Vesteralen and Lofoten Islands and enjoy views of the Seven Sisters and Torghatten mountain. Whilst other itineraries offer an overview of Norway, this cruise navigates close to the fjords, taking in the best possible views and finding out all about the lives of the locals.

This Kirkenes to Bergen Cruise is ideal for travellers looking to experience Norway the way the Norwegians do. Recommended excursions include the Midnight Sun summer concert in the Arctic Cathedral and a trip to share a meal with the indigenous Sami people in a turf hut in Hammerfest.

  • Day 1 - Oslo

    Due to the remote nature of your cruise embarkation point, you will spend the first night of your holiday in Oslo. If you're keen to explore this iconic city, why not extend your stay and venture out to see some of the incredible sights of the capital? Oslo boasts a myriad of attractions, including the renowned National Museum of Art, Design and Architecture; the Norwegian Opera and Ballet; the Royal Palace and the Stortinget (Parliament) building. Add to this the city's seemingly endless stretches of verdent forest and you'll find Oslo a sightseer's dream. Get your Kirkenes to Bergen Cruise off to an unforgettable start with an opening adventure in the nation's capital.

  • Day 2 - Kirkenes

    Our Kirkenes to Bergen Cruise is the classic voyage south taking in the best possible views - Kirkenes

    After a domestic flight from Oslo to Kirkenes, board your ship today and settle into your cabin. Thanks to its high latitude, Kirkenes experiences continuous sunlight, thanks to the Midnight Sun, between 17th March and 21st July. From this far corner of Norway, the Kirkenes to Bergen Cruise heads southward, charting the gentle transition from Arctic to temperate landscapes.

    Meals included:Breakfast, Dinner
  • Day 3 - Hammerfest and Tromsø

    Hammerfest and Tromsø

    Today we visit Hammerfest - the starting point for Bill Bryson’s journey in his book Neither Here Nor There. Later, your Kirkenes to Bergen Cruise calls at Tromsø where there's the opportunity to attend a concert at the Arctic Cathedral.

    Meals included:Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Day 4 - The Lofoten Islands

    The Lofoten Islands

    Discover some of Norway's most breathtaking scenery today on your Kirkenes to Bergen Cruise. The mountainous Lofoten Islands are a truly impressive sight. Indeed, so unspoilt is this part of the world that the whole length of the region’s major road (the E10) has been designated a National Tourist Route. Located where the Arctic Ocean and Gulf Stream meet, the islands are surrounded by some of the most fertile waters in Norway, attracting sea eagles, puffins and whales.

    Meals included:Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

    The Arctic Circle and Seven Sisters

    Showcasing some of the most iconic views in Norway, your Kirkenes to Bergen Cruise passes close to the Seven Sisters mountain range and Torghatten – the pierced mountain - today. Have your cameras at the ready for these truly spectacular sights!

    Meals included:Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Day 6 - Trondheim and Molde

    Trondheim and Molde

    If it's day six, it must be Trondheim! Despite several notable fires, including almost total destruction during the early modern period, the Viking city of Trondheim still has Norway’s most impressive collection of wooden buildings. Your Kirkenes to Bergen Cruise also offers an optional excursion to Nidaros Cathedral during your time here so you can visit the grave of the patron saint of Norway.
