Board comfortable MS Maud in Dover bound for Norway. If winter weather on the North Sea doesn’t delay us too much, we’ll arrive in the bustling city of Bergen and ride the funicular to the panorama at Mount Fløyen. Next stop is Loen at the foot of Mount Hoven, the summit of which has views of Jostedalsbreen Glacier. Then, chill out at the Magic Ice bar in Svolvær and brush up on British WWII history in Narvik. Alta in the Arctic boasts ideal skies for you to see the aurora, perhaps appearing above its artistic Northern Lights Cathedral. Then it’s on to Tromsø’s Polar Museum where you’ll discover the importance of this polar city and enjoy optional winter excursions. The fishing villages of Reine and Å in the Lofoten Islands are exceptionally pretty while Kalvåg is a hidden gem few ever see. We’ll attempt to go ashore on the islands of Mosterøy and Klosterøy or explore the heritage of Stavanger before returning to Dover.
