Explore the stunning coast of northern Norway - a region of fjords, glaciers and off-shore islands - on this delightful autumn cruise. Slipping away from the dock in Hull, Astoria cruises well beyond the Arctic Circle to Europe’s northernmost settlements, taking you in search of the Aurora Borealis - the enchanting and unforgettable Northern Lights.

Full Itinerary

Day One: Depart Hull

Board Astoria in Hull today, and settle in to your cabin as the ship prepares to set sail.

Day Two: At sea

Spend today relaxing, and getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers.

Day Three: Bergen

Compact and friendly, Bergen was once a great trading city within the Hanseatic League. It remains Norway's second city and, despite being sheltered from the sea by its seven hills and outlying islands, is unashamedly nautical in outlook. Visit the vibrant harbour and fish market, stroll past the wooden warehouses of Bryggen and take the Floibanen funicular to the summit of 'Mount' Floyen.

Day Four: Andalsnes

Astoria cruises into beautiful Romsdalsfjord and Andalsnes, today. From here, there's the opportunity to enjoy an excursion through some of Norway's most spectacular mountain scenery, and perhaps a chance to visit the famous wooden Rodven stave church in its dreamy setting beside the fjord.

Day Five: At sea

Relax on board as Astoria spends another day at sea.

Day Six: Tromso

The largest settlement beyond the Arctic Circle, Tromso, its magnificent cathedral rising grandly from its bustling centre, is our port of call today. Step ashore to explore its daily market and fascinating Polarmuseum, which chronicles the lives and exploits of the likes of Amundsen and Nansen.

Day Seven: Honningsvag

Cruise way beyond the Arctic Circle, close to the coast of Finnmark. As Astoria docks in remote Honningsvag, you’ll have the chance to join an optional excursion to the famous visitor centre at Nordkapp (North Cape), which lies almost at Europe’s northernmost point.

Day Eight: Alta

Astoria spends a long day at our northernmost port of call, remote Alta. Sky-gaze at your leisure (the Northern Lights are often at their most astounding here), and explore the Arctic region of Finnmark, home to the Sami people, the prehistoric rock carvings at Hjemmeluft and the famous Ice Hotel, on one of the exciting optional excursions.

Day 9-10: At sea

Make the most of Astoria's on-board facilities on another day at sea.

Day 11: Alesund

Alesund, with its natural harbours lined with pastel-painted, gabled and turreted buildings, is an unexpectedly eautiful port. Don't miss the town's fascinating Sunnmore Museum, which offers insight into life in this part of the world through the ages, and boasts a fine boat collection.

Day 12: Stavanger

The prosperous former fishing capital of Stavanger, its sleek modern buildings (especially the striking Norwegian Petroleum Museum) contrasting with the white-painted, clapboard houses of its waterfront and old town, is Astoria’s final Norwegian landfall. Step ashore to wander before we enjoy the breathtaking passage though Lysefjord, where the towering Preikestolen rock formation soars above the waters.

Day 13: At sea

Make the most of your final day aboard Astoria as she cruises back towards Hull.

Day 14: Arrive Hull

Bid farewell to Astoria and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise.
