Our round trip Tromso Kirkenes Cruise offers ample time to see the Northern Lights

What Makes Me Mighty Fine

  • Great value, five day, circular, Northern Lights cruise departing Tromso and travelling up the coast to Kirkenes
  • Enjoy great Aurora spotting opportunities sailing above the Arctic Circle and make full use of the on board Aurora alert system
  • Make the most of the ship’s panorama lounge and enjoy exquisite views as you relax in comfort
  • Spend a night in the Arctic capital of Tromso and add extra nights here, before or after your voyage to enjoy the fabulous culture of this part of the world
  • Personalise your cruise by booking some of the fantastic, optional shore excursions

Our Tromso to Kirkenes Cruise begins as you join your ship in Norway’s Arctic capital and begin your leisurely voyage north. Together with fellow passengers, keep an eye on the skies as you sail through the waters towards Honningsvåg. The conditions here are perfect for Aurora spotting so, weather permitting, you may just be treated to a magical display of nature's own light show!

From Honningsvåg you can join an excursion to mainland Europe’s most northerly point, North Cape. This is a wild and windswept headland where the cliffs rise dramatically 300 metres from the sea and nothing but ice and water stands between you and the frozen wastes surrounding the North Pole.

Sailing on, the ship now bears east, eventually reaching the sheltered harbour of Kirkenes, a mere 10km from the Russian border. Kirkenes is the turning point for your Tromso Kirkenes Cruise and this fascinating small town offers a tantalising glimpse of life in this remote region of Norway. Here you can visit the border with Russia, try your hand at snowmobiling or enjoy a taste of Sami life.

As the return journey from Kirkenes hugs the coastline, you will revisit remote settlements which rely on the ships to maintain contact with the rest of Norway. Your Tromso Kirkenes Cruise ends, after an overnight sailing, back in Tromso.
