Venture into the Arctic during the Northern Lights season, with chances to witness Mother Nature’s captivating light display both ashore and while cruising the Tjeldsundet Strait – a route only accessible to smaller ships like Balmoral. Discover the local way of life by visiting a Sámi community, where tales of intriguing customs such as reindeer herding and joiking – a form of Sámi song, unfold around a fire in a cosy tepee-style lavvu tent. Elsewhere, you can meet the friendly inhabitants of a husky yard and gain an insight into the tradition of sledding. Beyond the opportunity to spot the Aurora Borealis, uncovering the science behind this extraordinary wonder will enrich your journey.
