Itinerary

18/10/20 Bremerhaven (Germany) 15:30
19/10/20 Rest at sea
20/10/20 Olden (Norway) 09:00 18:00
The southernmost of the three short arms of the inner Nordfjord ends in Olden. The charming village is located between smart farms on gently rising, fertile slopes, which become steeper and steeper up into dense, overgrown mountain peaks. The beautiful Oldendalen valley runs from the town between towering mountains to the edge of the mighty Jostedalsgletscher. The Briksdal Glacier is one of the most accessible glacier tongues of the Jostedalsbreen. The creeping moving, furrowed arm of ice is visited on the excursions offered from Olden, next to magnificent waterfalls, glacier-fed rivers and beautiful mountain lakes.
21/10/20 Kristiansund (Norway) 08:30 15:30
22/10/20 Rest at sea
23/10/20 Alta (Norway) 10:00
Alta, Finnmark’s largest city, stretches along the inner Altafjord and along the banks of one of Norway’s best salmon rivers of the same name. Alta now has 3 city centers: Bossekop with its long trading tradition and markets, Elvebakken in the east with city airport and seaport and the New Town with its offices and shops. Large forest areas and part of the Finnmarksvidda high plateau surround Alta, where in the summer the midnight sun never sets and on clear winter nights the polar lights often dance across the sky.
24/10/20 Alta (Norway) 01:00
Alta, Finnmark’s largest city, stretches along the inner Altafjord and along the banks of one of Norway’s best salmon rivers of the same name. Alta now has 3 city centers: Bossekop with its long trading tradition and markets, Elvebakken in the east with city airport and seaport and the New Town with its offices and shops. Large forest areas and part of the Finnmarksvidda high plateau surround Alta, where in the summer the midnight sun never sets and on clear winter nights the polar lights often dance across the sky.
25/10/20 Tromso (Norway) 08:00 17:00
Not surprisingly, most of the attractions of a city that is almost 350 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle carry the additional title of “the world’s northernmost”. That’s why Tromsø, the capital of the Arctic, not only owns the northernmost university, cathedral and brewery, but also owns the northernmost botanical garden in the world. A cable car leads to the top of Storsteinen and offers fantastic views of the beautiful and lively city. It extends to two islands and the mainland, which are connected by bridges and tunnels. The Polar Museum is only one of Tromsø’s outstanding museums, and the extraordinary Arctic Cathedral is undoubtedly a highlight.
26/10/20 Rest at sea
27/10/20 Andalsnes (Norway) 09:00 17:30
Åndalsnes is located at the end of the 88-kilometer Romsdalfjordes at the mouth of the Rauma River, which winds through the valley of the same name. It was one of the first rivers in Norway to attract British aristocrats and other fly fishermen from abroad at the end of the 19th century. The small town is today the administrative center of Rauma in the Norwegian district of Møre and Romsdal. The excursions offered will take you to the wonderful Romsdal Alps with the famous Trollwand and the spectacular Serpentine Trollstigen. Åndalsnes is also the starting point of the fascinating Raumabahnstrecke, on which the classic steam train travels through a thrilling mountain scenery.
28/10/20 Bergen (Norway) 10:00 20:00
Norway’s second largest city is also known as the gateway to the fjords. With a population of less than a quarter of a million people, but rather the pleasant feeling of being in a small town. Seven surrounding mountains form a beautiful backdrop and a cable car ride on the city mountain Fløien promises great panoramic views of Bergen and the Norwegian coastline with its many archipelago. The colorful quay promenade of Bryggen Old Town is the face of Bergen. The typical wooden gabled houses were once the home and workplace of the Hanseatic merchants. Today, shops are located here selling handicrafts and traditional souvenirs.
29/10/20 Rest at sea
30/10/20 Bremerhaven (Germany) 08:00

Note: In case of bad weather or sea conditions that prevent the ship from reaching a planned port, alternative arrangements will be made as far as possible.
