MIDNIGHT SUN ON THE NORTH CAPE

This wonderful Arctic adventure sees Amy Johnson cruise toward the fjords of Western Norway, then to the remote Svalbard Archipelago, with its Arctic wildlife, before returning to the glorious fjordlands for more scenic wonders.

Call first at Bergen, with its dramatic backdrop of mountains and colourful wooden houses, before cruising up the coast to idyllic Trondheim. Continue north to the Arctic Circle, first to scenic Narvik and then to colourful Tromsø, gateway to the pristine wilderness that lies beyond. Amy Johnson then heads west across the Arctic Sea to Svalbard, enjoying the long, light days of summer cruising. Visit Longyearbyen, its principle settlement, which sits amid a flower-covered paradise that is home to reindeer, Arctic foxes, polar bears and walruses. Sail east to Honningsvåg, Norway’s northernmost city, before turning south, calling at pretty Rosendal and Kristiansund.
