Centuries of Viking legends and Norwegian folklore echo through the dramatic fjords and majestic mountains of Norway. Explore this storied land aboard a comfortable ship as you sail to the top of this magical country and into the Arctic Circle. Dine in a Viking banquet hall and bask in the transcendent melodies of Edvard Grieg as you learn the story behind Norway’s one-of-a-kind culture. Sail through pristine islands, past majestic mountains and go ashore in enchanting towns such as Tromso, Alesund, Trondheim, and take a front-row seat for the luminous green curtains of the northern lights, the Aurora Borealis.

Here are reviews from people who have taken our ocean cruise adventures in Norway:
“To answer the most asked question: Yes, we saw the lights for five consecutive nights. Food on the ship was excellent. Dress for winter. I’ve learned the value of mittens over gloves and warm boots. Our instructor was a Viking history expert and a forger of superb group cohesion. Recommended!”
“A wonderful winter voyage to above the Arctic Circle on MS Midnasol. We did get to see the Northern Lights! This was a great “Not A Cruise Ship” experience (a cruise ship combined and an intercostal ferry) and was a wonderful way to experience Norway.”
