Day 1 - Tromso to Bergen Cruise : Arrival
Take a flight to Tromsø, also known as the ‘Paris of the North’, for the start of your Tromso to Bergen Cruise. This bustling city has a cosmopolitan feel and is a favourite port of call on our Norwegian cruises. There will be plenty of time to visit the most northerly brewery on earth and enjoy one of the optional winter activities on offer here before you depart. Perhaps you want to mush your own team of dogs or maybe set out on a snowmobiling excursion - if you're looking for thrills, you're in the right place!
Choose a morning flight and you'll have time to venture up the mountain on an Arctic Panorama cable car journey. You can even choose to fly in a day early and, if you are holidaying between late November and early January, embark on a whale watching safari before your voyage begins.
Later in the day you will board your ship and set sail from Tromso to Bergen on a Cruise you'll remember for a very long time to come. Every moment of this voyage is breathtaking and the anticipation of seeing the Northern Lights only adds to the excitement.
Day 2 - Lofoten Islands and Vesterålen
Today, your Northern Lights voyage passes through the Lofoten Islands which offer some of the world's most spectacular scenery. Relax on board as the boat weaves between the pretty isles before making its way through the Raftsund channel. One of the great things about this Tromso to Bergen Cruise is that it gives you the fantastic opportunity to see the Lofoten Islands by day so you can really appreciate their beauty.
