Beautiful Lofoten - Svolvær - Stamsund
Lofoten is world famous for its nature and even we Norwegians are left speechless. Charming fishing villages are idyllically nestled in between huge mountains and white sandy beaches. You’ll rejoin the ship in the evening.
The first stop is Stamsund, and here you’ll have a fantastic view of the majestic mountain tops of Lofotveggen (the Lofot mountain wall). Then we leave Lofoten behind us, and set our course towards the mainland. We can promise you that the days that follow will also offer incredibly stunning nature.
Dramatic views - Bodø - Rørvik
It’s worth getting up early to see the Helgeland coastline’s countless harbours, lush valleys and steep mountains. Then we cross the Arctic Circle at 66°33’N and this is celebrated during the day. From the deck, you’ll be able to see Viking Island with the Arctic Circle globe. Right before lunch, we go to the old trading port Nesna, and then the ship continues towards the Sandnessjøen islands. Then you’ll just need to find a seat in the panorama lounge or on deck; first we’ll sail by the Seven Sisters mountain range.
The mountains are between 900 to 1000 m tall. It’s easy to see why these “ladies” have inspired ancient legends. According to folklore, trolls turned into stone when they looked at the sun. This is what happened to these seven troll sisters, who were turned into beautiful mountains when they forgot to hide from the sun.
After visiting Brønnøysund, it’s time for even more enchanting views from the ship; Torghatten is known for the natural tunnel that goes right through the mountain. The hole, which is 160 metres long, 35 metres tall and 20 metres wide, was formed in the Ice Age. According to legend, it was an arrow shot by the troll Hestmannen (Horse man) that created the hole in Torghatten when he was courting.
Experience Trondheim - Trondheim - Ålesund
After breakfast it’s time to explore Trondheim. You’ll have a hard time getting bored in this city! First and foremost, Trondheim is known for the Nidaros Cathedral, the impressive structure built over Olaf II’s grave. Other attractions include Munkholmen, Sverresborg’s Trondelag Folk Museum, Ringve music museum, Trondheim Science Museum and Rockheim.
The little town centre combined with interesting boutiques makes Trondheim a popular shopping destination. Bakklandet also has many charming shops, where you’ll find a wide variety of handmade and unique items. And if it’s your first visit to this area; by Gamle Bybro you’ll find Baklandet Skydsstation, which is one of Trondheim’s most idyllic and peaceful cafes. After a few hours in Trondheim, the ship continues its journey south. Kristiansund is the first stop, before the ship crosses the open sea. Then we arrive in Molde in the evening. Take the last evening on board to unwind and enjoy the view.
Enjoy your last hours on board - Ålesund - Bergen
Before we dock in Bergen, there are still a few nautical miles to go with plenty of fascinating nature to see. Take in the views of the fjords, glaciers and lush coastal landscape. The ship will make a short stop in Florø, which is Norway’s westernmost town.
A few nautical miles south of Florø, we sail by the inlet to the beautiful Sogne Fjord. Then we pass by the magnificent archipelago from Fedje and pretty Øygarden in towards Bergen. Here our voyage ends. If you have time, there are plenty of opportunities to relax in Bergen before you travel back home.
