Cruise into the Northern Lights Norway

Cruise with Hurtigruten from Tromsø to Kirkenes in search of the magical Aurora

Hurtigruten ships have been an integral part of Norwegian coastal life for more than 100 years, delivering freight, post and passengers to remote communities between Bergen in the south and Kirkenes in the north. They’re informal, adventurous journeys, calling at ports inaccessible to other cruise ships.

This five-day Arctic adventure, starting and ending in Tromsø begins at the same latitude as Siberia and Alaska, where the influence of the Gulf Stream creates the world's longest ice-free polar coast. And with the whole voyage occurring within the Arctic Circle, you've a greatly increased chance of seeing the magical Northern Lights.

3 nights cruise • 1 night Tromsø


Day 1: Tromsø

Fly to Tromsø, Norway’s Arctic capital, to board your ship and begin your voyage north. Keep your eyes peeled for the Northern Lights as you head towards Honningsvåg.

Stay: Cruise ship

Dinner included

Day 2: Honningsvåg

After an early morning stop at Hammerfest, you arrive in Honningsvåg and join an optional excursion to mainland Europe’s most northerly point – the North Cape. This is a wild and windswept headland where the cliffs rise dramatically from the sea and nothing but white-capped rollers stand between you and the North Pole.

Stay: Cruise ship

Breakfast & dinner included

Day 3: Kirkenes

Sailing on, you’ll reach the sheltered harbour of Kirkenes, just 10 km from the Russian border. This fascinating town allows a tantalising glimpse of remote Arctic life. You can visit the Russian border, try your hand at snowmobiling or visit the Snowhotel before beginning the return journey south.

Stay: Cruise ship

Breakfast & dinner included

Day 4: Tromsø

Hugging the coastline, Hammerfest, a contender for the world’s northernmost city, is your first major port of call before reaching Tromsø late in the evening. Transfer to your centrally located hotel for an overnight stay.

Day 5: Tromsø

Optional excursions may be available before your transfer to the airport and return flight to the uk.
