12N Norway & Northern Lights - P&O

Southampton, At Sea, Andalsnes, Norway, Tromso, Norway, Alta, Norway, Stavanger, Norway, Bergen Norway

We get the odd glimpse of the Northern Lights here at home, but Norway is where they truly sparkle. And there’s no better way to experience their iridescent beauty than from the deck of one of our ships. Aurora Borealis is most likely to be visible between September and April, so this type of cruise is made for winter months, giving you the best chance to view Mother Nature's very own light show. And to add to the spectacle, you can also marvel at Norway’s mighty fjords.

Day 6-7 - Tromso, Norway

(Overnight) is easy to make the most of a day in Norway’s most northerly city and cruise port Tromsø because, in summer, the ‘midnight sun’ shines around the clock. The best way to see its full glory is to take a cable car 480 metres up to the top of Mount Storsteinen, which affords spectacular views out over the city to the surrounding mountains. The launchpad for many Polar expeditions, Tromsø lies 400 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle and, if you are fascinated by the world of snow and ice, the city’s Polaria Science Museum is the place to find out all about it. Within its iceberg-shaped walls, you can meet the local wildlife at a vast aquarium, experience an Arctic snowstorm or take a virtual trek through the frozen wilderness to encounter polar bears and see the mystical Northern Lights. And, if the experience leaves you thirsty, you’re in luck; Tromsø has more bars than anywhere else in Norway!

Day 11 - Bergen Norway

A former ‘European City of Culture’ with a string of fascinating art galleries facing its Lille Lungedgardsvann Lake, Bergen cruise port nestles amongst the magnificent mountains strung along Norway’s western coastline and is a gateway to Fjordland. This 13th century Hanseatic – and now World Heritage - city was built on the site of an original Viking settlement and is full of historic sites, the best known of which is Bryggen. A collection of 11th century wooden buildings along the harbourfront, this is a World Heritage Site in its own right and has its own museum to tell its fascinating story. To enjoy the best views of this picturesque city, take the funicular railway to the top of Mount Fløyen, which overlooks both Bergen and the surrounding region. Also the birthplace of composer Edvard Grieg, Bergen is easily walkable and has a lively fish market and an even better general market along the harbourfront as well as many attractive bars and cafes.
