Featured Story

Onboard with Havila Voyages

Wexas specialist Meriel Lowe casts her eye over Norway’s classic coastal route and a brand-new ship, designed with comfort and the environment in mind.

Routes & seasons

With departure dates throughout the year, guests have the chance to experience the best of Norway through the seasons, exploring dramatic fjords and far-flung archipelagos under either the Midnight Sun or those magical Northern Lights. Choose between the fulllength route between Bergen and Kirkenes, perhaps tagging on a stay at the iconic Kirkenes Snowhotel, or opt for a shorter section, sailing either between Tromsø and Trondheim or Trondheim and Bergen. These shorter routes are perfect for those looking to combine a cruise with other parts of mainland Norway. Otherwise, you might choose to put your Havila experience front and centre, taking the full voyage from Bergen to Kirkenes and back again. The possibilities are almost endless.

New ships, spacious cabins

Havila’s brand-new fleet of ships offer some of the most advanced environmental technologies in the industry, including the world’s largest battery pack which allows for up to four hours’ emission-free sailing. That’s alongside an energy-efficient hull design and use of natural gas, which cuts CO2 emissions by up to 30%. But that’s not all, as guests will also enjoy a host of modern comforts, including exceptionally spacious cabins and suites, many with panoramic sea views, some with balconies and, in the case of the stunning Lighthouse Suite, even a private Jacuzzi. Whichever you choose, you’ll be treated to the likes of complimentary WiFi, USB ports and stylish Nordic-inspired design.

Seasonal dining, inspired by local culture

Havila’s on-board dining has a firm focus on local, seasonal ingredients, with Norwegian food culture informing menus which are, in turn, inspired by the route the ships’ sail. In fact, at the main Havrand Restaurant, you’ll swap between menus as you move along the coast, with dishes inspired by four distinct regions, showcasing everything from summer fruits and berries to succulent reindeer, king crab and delicious Arctic char. Other dining options include the Havly cafe, where guests can enjoy coffee and cake as well as light lunches and simple dinners, and the elegant Hildring, where a five-course fine-dining menu pays tribute to the many flavours of Norway, with a special emphasis on seafood.

Curated excursions

While you’ll enjoy your time on board, you’ll also want to step ashore to explore all the Norwegian coast has to offer. In summer, UNESCO-listed fjords set the scene for spectacular hikes, fishing trips and strolls among historic towns. Get up close to nature on RIB boat safaris in search of sea eagles, meet huskies near Tromsø, get acquainted with Sami locals and gaze out over the Barents Sea from mainland Europe’s most northerly point. Then, in winter, the likes of husky sledding and snowmobiling is illuminated by majestic swirls of the Northern Lights. Whatever you choose, you’ll enjoy the services of expert guides who’ll be on hand to add colour, intrigue and humour to your holiday experience.
