Winter Voyage South Itinerary

Day 1 - UK - Oslo (Norway)

Fly from the UK to Norway's capital, Oslo, where an overnight stay allows plenty of time to explore this lively city.

Day 2 - Oslo - Kirkenes

This morning fly from Oslo to Kirkenes where where you will embark your ship in Kirkenes. At approximately 12:00hrs your ship sets sail, hugging the coast as it visits the remote settlements it continues to serve more than a century after the Hurtigruten was created to provide a vital link with the rest of the country, giving us the opportunity to see Norway as the Norwegians see it.

Day 3 - Hammerfest - Tromsø

Hammerfest, the world's most northerly town is our first major stop, before continuing to Tromso for a chance to enjoy a midnight concert in the Arctic Cathedral. (B, L, D)

Day 4 - Vesteralen - Lofoten Islands

Passing through the legendary Vesteralen and Lofoten Islands in the daylight your ship negotiates an intricate network of inlets and isles. This is one of the most beautiful stretches of the Norwegian coast and for many it is the most stunning part of the journey south.

Day 5 - Arctic Circle - Seven Sisters

Cross the Arctic Circle and sail past the peaks of the Seven Sisters as you enter a world of legends and folklore, before a chance to enjoy the award-winning Maritime Museum at Rørvik. (B, L, D)
