Norway Coast Round Voyage Special Offer

The Norwegian coast, with its deep fjords and high mountains, its huge glaciers and myriad of islands and islets, awaits for you on this classic 11-night voyage between Bergen and Kirkenes. In summer, there is the midnight sun, and in winter, in the long polar night, the Northern Lights dance across the sky. A cruise with Havila Voyages offers peace and a chance to experience nature up close. It offers fresh air and salt, sea breezes, narrow fjords and the ocean's vast expanse.

Each season has its own special highpoints, and there are few places where these are more striking than in Norway. In spring, the snow starts to retreat up the sides of the mountains, and the landscape explodes into various shades of green. In summer, the days are mild, and north of the Arctic Circle the sun does not set below the horizon. When autumn comes, the air becomes crisper, and a symphony of warm autumn colours descends over the landscape. In winter, the snow falls, and in clear weather you can see the Northern Lights.

The world's most beautiful coastline now has the world's most environmentally friendly coastal ship. Our quiet and unspoilt nature, clean water and fresh air are worth taking care of. That is why Havila Voyages have focused on green solutions, so that those who come after us will be able to experience the same. Our new ship has the world's largest battery packs, which means that we can sail through the world heritage fjords with reduced emissions.

Stay, sleep and dine in our new, modern ships in surroundings that are inspired by the natural wonders we sail past.

Norway Coast Round Voyage

Day 1 - Bergen

The journey starts in Bergen, the capital of western Norway, with the colourful and UNESCO-listed warehouses in Bryggen. Take the funicular railway, Fløibanen, up to one of the lookout points, sample the seafood at the fish market or take a stroll through the narrow streets and along the quays of the lively harbour. Bergen is the gateway to the Norwegian fjords and the start of your coastal adventure.

Day 2 - Florø - Måløy - Torvik - Ålesund - Geiranger or Hjørundfjorden/Urke

After the first night on board, you can start your day by waving to the Havila Voyages headquarters just off Torvik. Ålesund, is renowned for its art nouveau architecture with beautiful brick houses and warehouses. In the summer, you can continue to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Geiranger Fjord, which has steep mountainsides and dramatic waterfalls. Or else we visit Hjørundfjorden or Urke in the autumn.

Day 3 - Kristiansund - Trondheim - Rørvik

It is morning when we dock in the historic city of Trondheim, which was founded over a thousand years ago. Nidaros Cathedral is the landmark of the city; it is Norway's national shrine and one of the largest cathedrals in Northern Europe. After our visit here, the voyage continues out into the fjord, into an abundant archipelago and heads for northern Norway.

Day 4 - Brønnøysund - Sandnessjøen - Nesna - Ørnes - Bodø - Stamsund - Svolvær

On this stretch, we mark crossing the Arctic Circle with a ceremony and continue onward into the Arctic regions. It means midnight sun in the summer, while winter days are merely a shade less dark than night-time and, possibly, Northern Lights in the evenings. Nature is powerful with northern Scandinavia's largest glacier, the world's strongest tidal current and encounters with the majestic sea eagle. In the evening, Lofoten's fishing villages, steep mountains and Vikings await.

Day 5 - Stokmarknes - Sortland - Risøyhamn - Harstad - Finnsnes - Tromsø - Skjervøy

The voyage continues on through narrow fjords and past wild mountains to Tromsø, a city characterised by hunting and fishing, polar expeditions and courage. Now you have also reached the land of the Sami, Norway's indigenous people. Meeting the Sami and their reindeer while hearing about the Sami culture is a unique experience you will remember.

Day 6 - Hammerfest - Havøysund - Honningsvåg - Kjøllefjord - Mehamn - Berlevåg

As far north as you can get - by land and sea. For many, the visit to the North Cape is a high point and a goal for voyages along the Norwegian coast. Up here in the polar landscape, nature is at its harshest and most desolate, but between bare plains and rugged cliffs people cling on and reap nature's bounty. You can also have a taste of the catch. How about some king crab?

Day 7 - Båtsfjord - Vardø - Vadsø - Kirkenes

You are now as far east on your voyage as you can go. The border with Russia is only a few kilometres away, and the road signs in Kirkenes are in Norwegian and Russian. You can go as far as the border on one of our excursions, or how about a visit to the Snowhotel where everything is made of ice and snow?

Day 8 - Mehamn - Kjøllefjord - Honningsvåg - Havøysund - Hammerfest - Øksfjord - Skjervøy - Tromsø

The polar landscape changes as we sail towards the west and south again. The great expanses are replaced by steep peaks, and in the evening we sail into Tromsø. You can go to a midnight concert in the Arctic Cathedral, or take a stroll in the midnight sun or under the Northern Lights and explore the nightlife of the city dubbed "The Paris of the North".

Day 9 - Finnsnes - Harstad - Risøyhamn - Sortland - Stokmarknes - Svolvær - Stamsund

We return to the wild, idyllic Lofoten Islands . Beneath the jagged mountains lie chalky white sandy beaches and fishing villages with a vibrant fishing industry and locals using the coastal ships for everyday trips and transport. If the weather permits, we will enter the narrow Trollfjord. There is a strong possibility of spotting sea eagles here.

Day 10 - Bodø - Ørnes - Sandnessjøen - Brønnøysund - Rørvik

Now we have come so far south that we're crossing the Arctic Circle and sailing away from the polar night and the sunlit nights. But you can still see the Northern Lights in the winter, and it is never completely dark during the summer nights. Here you sail past a myriad of small islands, islets and skerries and past the special mountain, Trollhatten, which has a hole in the middle. If you wish, you can also go on the trip to the mountain and enter the hole.

Day 11 - Trondheim - Kristiansund - Molde - Ålesund

We sail through the wide Trondheim fjord that is bounded by rolling farmland on both sides and return to the coast and the open sea. You can disembark in Kristiansund and be driven along the Atlantic Ocean Road, which has been called the world's most beautiful drive. The road meanders along islets and skerries, and afterwards you can re-embark in Molde.

Day 12 - Torvik - Måløy - Florø - Bergen

The last day of the tour takes you through a diverse coastal landscape of bare rocky mountains and a maze of sounds and waterways between many islands. The great fjords and glaciers are situated inland. Bergen awaits at the end of the voyage.

Note: on Day 2 Geiranger is visited between 1 Jun - 31 Aug, Hjørundfjorden/Urke is visited between 1 Sep - 31 Oct
