Cruise Norway’s remote coastlines on a coastal voyage that takes you deep into nature. In Bergen, Norway’s second largest city, marvel at houses clinging to the hillside, wander along historic cobbled streets, and sample superb Norwegian cuisine in the many eateries located in Bryggen, designated a UNESCO World-heritage site. On a magnificent setting overlooking Frei fjord and Kvernes fjord, discover the remarkable wooden stave church in Kvernes, Norway’s only stave church built after the Middle Ages.

Further north, spot seals, sea eagles and perhaps whales as you sail through the Norwegian fjords of the Lofoten Islands, where jagged mountain peaks rise out of reflective bays. Wander through charming fishing villages dotted with colourful wooden houses so emblematic of Scandinavia. Experience Lofoten Islands and Bergen on an Arctic Discovery voyage.

In Svalbard up in the High Arctic, be on high alert for a chance to spot the arctic’s apex predator, the polar bear, on a coastal expedition cruise through the archipelago. Witness giant walrus hauled out on ice floes, Zodiac cruise in bays where bearded seal and ring seal frolic beneath 50-metre ice cliffs, hike through brightly-coloured and blooming tundra. Bird lovers will enjoy listening to the cackling of little auks while another sound – the click of the camera trying to capture posturing puffins clustered on rocky ledges. Choose a Svalbard Odyssey departure that best suits you.
