There is no more authentic way to experience Norway’s coast than on this new cruise featuring a ship, captain, and crew who call this region their home and now the area intimately, as well as the local people who board their ship. Join us for an adventure of a lifetime as you come to know the uniqueness of this region and its people. 

Highlights Include

  • Norway’s Coast: Beginning from the charming World Heritage site of Bergen, “gateway to the Fjords,” your cruise stops at many ports and passes the Arctic Circle to arrive at the North Cape and Kirkenes. Along the way, view the magnificent scenery, stop at one of the northernmost points in Europe, and learn about Viking heritage and the modern lifestyle of the northern Sami peoples. You’ll also meet with local residents as they join passengers for a day’s travel (the best means of transportation in this region).
  • Featured Excursions: Enjoy a number of cultural excursions planned exclusively for Smithsonian Journeys travelers. Then personalize your time with a portfolio of optional programs that appeal to your interests.
  • Active or Leisurely: With optional hikes, you can enjoy the landscape with your knowledgeable expedition team. Alternatively, take more leisurely optional cultural programs that provide insight into the uniqueness of coastal living. Or simply relax and enjoy the scenery, comforts, and social opportunities provided by your ship. 

Included meals are denoted as follows: Breakfast (B), Lunch (L), Reception (R), Dinner (D)
