Land of the Polar Bears
Enjoy the immense beauty of Svalbard on this high Arctic adventure, an expedition cruise among whales, walruses, polar bears and a million sea birds
A visit to Norway is like stepping through the wardrobe into Narnia. The spellbinding Northern Lights, Christmas card landscapes and active volcanoes form a backdrop for the tiny fishing villages, traditional farms and busy ports that the country’s hardy but hospitable people call home.
Come and discover a country carved from ice and fire, featuring massive glaciers, fairy-tale waterfalls and breathtaking scenery. The magic and mystery of this land is palpable – the long stretching mountainous landscapes, completely uninhabited areas and Viking history shroud Norway in myth and legend. Deep fjords indent the entire coast of Norway, making it one of the world’s most exciting cruise destinations.
Our voyage to the Northern Lights is a journey like no other. This classic coastal cruise from Bergen up into the Artic Circle and onward to the Russian border offers long relaxing nights aboard, away from lights created by habitation, which in turn creates the perfect chances for seeing the aurora borealis.
As well as its celebrated natural wonders, Norway also boasts several historical and architectural attractions of note, including Nidaros Cathedral - located in the city of Trondheim and Scandinavia’s oldest cathedral.
Other highlights include a visit to Tromsø, the capital of Arctic Norway, and Hammerfest, one of the world’s most northerly towns, where you too will feel on top of the world.
We have a range of tours to Norway available to suit everyone. With a high Arctic adventure to see the polar bears and whales in June and July, as well as a voyage to witness the Northern Lights in November. Wrap up warm in the winter, as the country experiences extreme cold, particularly in the subpolar regions.
Immerse yourself in this winter wonderland and book your next Norway tour with Jules Verne.
