Northern Highlights

A tantalising glimpse into life in this remote region of Norway
An Arctic adventure which travels to remote regions along the dramatic coastline and the most northerly part of Norway.The entire duration of this tour is spent above the Arctic Circle,increasing your chances of seeing the Aurora Borealis.

Our journey begins at the same latitude as Siberia and Alaska, where the influence of the Gulf Stream creates the longest ice–free polar coast.

Joining our ship in Norway’s Arctic capital, Tromsø, we begin our leisurely voyage north. Together with our fellow passengers, we keep our eyes to the skies as we pass through the waters towards Honningsvåg. From Honningsvåg we may join an excursion to mainland Europe’s most northerly point, North Cape. This is a wild and windswept headland where the cliffs rise dramatically 300 metres from the sea and we gaze out with nothing but water between us and the frozen wastes surrounding the North Pole.

Sailing on, we now bear east and eventually reach the sheltered harbour of Kirkenes, a mere 10km from the Russian border. Kirkenes is the turning point for the Hurtigruten voyage and this fascinating little town allows a tantalising glimpse into life in this remote region of Norway.

In Kirkenes it is possible to visit the border with Russia, try your hand at snowmobiling or enjoy a taste of Sami life. As the return journey from Kirkenes hugs the coastline we revisit remote settlements which rely on the Hurtigruten ships to maintain contact with the rest of Norway. We stay overnight in Tromsø after leaving the ship.
