Northern Lights Cruise Norway

  • Overview

    Northern Lights cruise in Norway

    Spotting the dancing lights, known as Aurora Borealis, is a bucket list item for many travellers. From the end of September until the beginning of April is the best time to spot the lights. Especially during the long winter days in December and January, you are more likely to spot the dancing lights. As you might know, it is a nature phenomenon, therefore it is never guaranteed that it is visible.

    The expedition cruise takes you through the majestic fjords of northern Norway. The snowy mountain peaks rise up from the fjords, which makes for breathtaking scenery.
