Contrast the northern and southern parts of the country on this picturesque Norway cruise. Depending on your departure date, you may revel in the delights of spring as Arctic landscapes begin to thaw or observe the landscapes come alive with rich color in the fall. No matter which season you choose, your Norwegian cruise will feature the stunning Norwegian fjords — just one the wonders of nature that unfold while your Hurtigruten ship eases along 1,250 miles of coastline. Spring and fall are the best times of the year to witness the unique migratory bird life around the Norwegian fjords, and sea life is also most active during this time. Travel to unspoiled fishing villages and historic towns, including Ålesund, Trondheim, and Tromso, and the spectacular Lofoten Islands, experiencing a true milestone as your ship sails across the Arctic Circle to the very top of Europe. Your Norway cruisetour includes two nights in Bergen — one before your Norwegian cruise and one after. You can also enhance your journey with our four-day Copenhagen, Denmark, post-trip extension.
