Norwegian Coast Autumn Round Voyage Special Offer

As summer fades, the coastline shifts from one season to the next. Along Norway's shores the sharp, clear air strengthens the reds, yellows and oranges that fill the mountainsides, hilltops and woods. If you are very lucky, the Northern Lights might appear and provide a touch of magic.

The first cool evenings summon the colours of autumn, as vivid shades of russet, ochre, and rouge creep into the leaves of broad-leafed trees. From the deck, framed by an icy blue sky, you can see a sprinkling of early snow on the peaks. The darkness comes gradually and the sun sets earlier and earlier.

Autumn Round Voyage Itinerary

Day 1 - UK - Bergen (Norway)

Fly from the UK to Bergen and transfer to your ship for embarkation. Enjoy the relaxed ambience of life on board and an opportunity to meet fellow passengers as you take in the spectacular landscapes.

Day 2 - Alesund

Wake up to the breathtaking beauty of Norway in its autumn colours as we cross the open west cape. After a call at the beautiful Art Nouveau town of Ålesund, we continue to Molde with its magnificent views of the Romsdal Alps - probably covered by the year's first snow. Today you'll also enjoy exploring Hjorundfjord in the heart of the majestic Sunnmore Alps. Ports visited: Florø, Måløy, Torvik, Ålesund, Molde

Day 3 - Trondheim

Trondheim, Norway's first capital, is a jewel of a city that you'll have time to explore. Discover its secrets by strolling through its charming streets, sitting by the peaceful harbour, or crossing the old city bridge to see the restored wooden buildings of Bakklandet. Ports visited: Kristiansund, Trondheim, Rørvik

Day 4 - Arctic Circle - Lofoten Islands

This morning we cross the Arctic Circle. Passengers sailing in Arctic waters for the first time are given an Arctic Circle baptism. Later, the Lofoten Wall appears and the beautiful islands appear. In the evening we reach Svolvar, the main settlement on the Lofoten Islands. Ports visited: Brønnøysund, Sandnessjøen, Nesna, Ørnes, Bodø, Stamsund, Slovaer

Day 5 - Tromso

Today you can enjoy the view of a diverse countryside of farmland, pine trees and magnificent peaks. In the early afternoon we arrive for a longer stay in Tromso, known as the Gateway to the Arctic. Ports visited: Stokmarknes, Sortland, Risøyhamn, Harstad, Finnsnes, Tromsø, Skjervøy

Day 6 - Honningsvag - North Cape

Breathe in the crisp, clean air while watching a landscape that is austere in its beauty. After an early stop in Hammerfest, we arrive in Honningsvåg. This is the gateway to the spectacular North Cape which rises 300 m from the ocean, and at 71° 10' 21" N puts you a mere 2,000 kilometres from the Geographical North Pole. In the evening we will pass a rock formation that is sacred to the indigenous Sami people, Finnkirka. Ports visited: Øksfjord, Hammerfest, Havøysund, Honningsvåg, Kjøllerfjord, Mehamn, Berlevåg

Day 7 - Kirkenes

The last port on the northbound voyage is Kirkenes, and at 30 degrees E you are actually further east than Istanbul and St. Petersburg. Due to its location close to the border with Russia and Finland this little town is quite lively. This is when your ship starts its southbound voyage, revealing ports during the daytime that we passed at night on our northern journey. After crossing Varangerfjord we arrive in Vardø, the easternmost point of the country. In the evening, we call at Båtsfjord, as well as Berlevåg. Ports visited: Båtsfjord, Vardø, Vadsø, Kirkenes

Day 8 - Hammerfest - Tromso

Start the day with breakfast at the North Cape (optional excursion). After calling at Honningsvåg and Havøysund, we stop in Hammerfest, the world's northernmost town. We continue south to Øksfjord, where a glacier calves directly into the sea, and after crossing open water, we will stop at the old trading post of Skjervøy. We dock in Tromsø just in time to savour its nightlife. Ports visited: Mehamn, Kjøllerfjord, Honningsvåg, Havøysund, Hammerfest, Øksfjord, Skjervøy, Tromsø

Day 9 - Vesteralen - Lofoten Islands

The island groups of Lofoten and Vesterålen offer some of the most stunning scenery you will see during your coastal voyage. Enjoy the shallow waters of the Risøyrenna Channel where sand banks are visible through the clear, green water. The ship will then negotiate the narrow Raftsund. If time and weather permit it, we'll take a detour into the spectacular Trollfjord where sheer cliffs hug the ship's sides, before heading on to Svolaer. Ports visited: Tromsø, Finnsnes, Harstad, Risøyhamn, Sortland, Stokmarknes, Svolvaer, Stamsund

Day 10 - Arctic Circle, Seven Sisters

From Ørnes we sail through crystalline waters framed by a landscape that is preparing for winter. Crossing the Arctic Circle once more, we pass the charming port of Sandnessjøen, and on the approach to Brønnøysund you can see the mythical Seven Sisters Mountains. Ports visited: Bodø, Ørnes, Nesna, Sandnessjøen, Brønnøysund, Rørvik

Day 11 - Trondheim - Kristiansund

Today gives you another opportunity to see the sights of Trondheim including the Nidaros Cathedral, Scandinavia's largest medieval building. As we cross the open sea to Molde, known as the 'city of roses,' you will notice the steep, grey, pointed peaks of the Romsdal Alps glinting in the sun. Ports visited: Trondheim, Kristiansund, Molde, Ålesund

Day 12 - Bergen - UK

During the night, the ship will call at Torvik, Mal?y, and Florø as the 'world's most beautiful voyage' starts to draw to a close. Yet, ahead we still have plenty of west Norway's spectacular scenery to enjoy. You will disembark from your Norwegian Coastal Voyage in Bergen, taking with you memories of a unique autumn journey. Transfer to Bergen airport for your return flight.

Extra nights can be added to the start or the end of this voyage, please contact us on to discuss your requirements.
