A Norway cruise is unlike any other. Embark on a voyage of discovery to picturesque Fjords, encompassing mountains and Glaciers.
Navigate through beautiful skerries and islands before reaching Ålesund, famed for its well preserved Art Nouveau architecture
The old Viking city of Trondheim is the highlight of your day. Visit Nidaros Cathedral, Norway’s largest and most famous Gothic style cathedral. You can also wander around the Bakklandet district with its charming coffee shops and eateries
You are invited out on deck for a traditional ceremony to mark crossing the Arctic Circle at latitude 66°33’N. Being above the Arctic Circle provides the best chances for experiencing the Northern Lights
In the Arctic zone, you’ll have more chances to see the Northern Lights. There’s much to see as you navigate the narrow channels towards the stunning city of Tromsø, capital of the Arctic, where you can try your hand at husky dog sledding or snowmobiling (available at a supplement)
Enjoy magnificent sub-Arctic landscapes as you cross the 71st parallel on your journey towards the North Cape, one of the northernmost points on the European continent. An optional excursion to the North Cape plateau puts you at 71°10’21’N, only 2,000 km away from the geographic North Pole. Stop for a photo at the Globe Monument, then continue on through the homeland of the indigenous Sámi people up to Kjøllefjord
The ship turns at Kirkenes, and ports visited at night northbound will now be seen during the day southbound. Kirkenes is home to the Snowhotel and several fascinating small heritage museums
On this polar stretch, you’ll visit Hammerfest, home to the UNESCO-listed Meridian Column. You arrive in Tromsø at night where you can enjoy a local night out or visit the Arctic Cathedral for a magical midnight concert (available at a supplement)
This stunning stretch of coastline past the beautiful Vesterålen islands towards Lofoten is a real highlight and offers some of the most beautiful scenery of the Norwegian Coast. As you enter the narrow Trollfjord strait at Raftsundet, you’ll be mesmerised by the steep mountains towering over you
As you sail along the Helgeland coast, you pass hundreds of islets, fertile farmland and steep granite walls rich in local lore. On deck, you can see the strange mountain Torghatten, famous for its distinctive hole right through the middle. Look out for the impressive Seven Sisters mountain range as well
Spend the morning in Trondheim, then sail through the majestic Trondheimsfjord past thousands of islets and fishing boats to Kristiansund, Norway’s “cured cod capital”. As your ship crosses the open sea on your way to Molde, known as Norway’s ‘City of Roses’, you’ll see the steep, grey, pointed peaks of the Romsdal Alps

MS Polarlys was built in 1996, and she is the third ship in Hurtigruten to have this name. Polarlys is the Norwegian word for polar light, a name given to the special Arctic phenomenon we chase in our winter programme “Hunting the Light”. MS Polarlys is a stylish ship, furnished with mahogany panelling, polished brass, and a choice selection of Norwegian contemporary art. Together with the extensive use of wood in the public areas, this has created a unique maritime atmosphere.Ship info Deck plans
