Fjords of Norway and the Midnight Sun

aboard the Island Princess
Plus an overnight and tour in London
A voyage along Norways’s pristine coastline offers some of the most dramatic landscapes and stunning vistas in the world.  It is considered by many to be the "World's Most Beautiful Sea Voyage".  
From the fjord-indented south to the rocky Arctic coastline of Finnmark in the north, this land abounds with natural treasures: thundering waterfalls cascading down steep mountains; ice-blue glaciers hemmed in by towering mountains, fast flowing rivers teeming with salmon, and emerald green fjords everywhere you look.  You will experience the sights, sounds and flavours of Norway’s “Midsommar” (Summer Solstice), a natural phenomenon that occurs during the summer that can be likened to a prolonged sunset and sunrise occurring simultaneously.
We will sail aboard the Island Princess, which features all the amenities of a resort hotel. The award-winning shore excursions and fascinating onboard programs offered will bring the culture and colours of Norway to life. Princess can introduce you to the next port on the horizon like no one else.  

Dining aboard a Princess ship is a joyful celebration in the truest sense with every dish “designed for fresh’ and crafted to exceed even the most discerning appetite.  From hand-tossed pizza to dazzling multi-course gourmet dinners, you will enjoy freshly prepared cuisine that celebrates the history of Norway. In addition, the ship has evening entertainment to suit every mood.

Following our wonderful cruise we will overnight in a centrally located London hotel, with dinner, breakfast and a panoramic city tour included.

* All shore excursions are optional and may be purchased in advance on Princess Cruises’ website or on board the ship.

Itinerary / Excursions

We depart for London.
We arrive in London and transfer by coach to Southampton where we board our ship, the Island Princess. This evening we enjoy our first delicious dinner on board.
A wonderful day at sea to relax and get acquainted with the ship and your fellow passengers.
This historic town was the base from where the Viking Kings ruled Norway for more than 500 years. From here you can take a picturesque walk to the famous Ryvarden Lighthouse, or visit St. Olav’s Church, steeped in Viking lore.
We cruise the waters of the Nordfjord and visit the village of Olden. Here you may take a stunning boat trip on the blue-green waters of Olden Lake, where you may view the mountain waterfalls and gaze in awe at the Jostedalsbreen Glacier - a remnant of the last Ice Age. Or, visit the Jostedalsbreen National Park Center, which features educational exhibits and 3D models of the park's glacial flows.
A day to enjoy the endless array of facilities and activities aboard our ship.
The Arctic Cathedral of Tromsdalen, the Tromso Museum and the world-renowned Polaria Arctic Center are a few of the main attractions here. Nicknamed “The Paris of the North”, Tromso is a lively city located spectacularly on an island surrounded by mountains, fjords and other islands in all directions.
This is the last town before Norway’s mysterious North Cape, beyond which lies only icy waters before one reaches the North Pole. This expanse of wilderness is marred by nothing save an occasional herd of reindeer. The North Cape experiences a Midnight Sun, which creates round the clock daylight from May to the beginning of August.
Longyearbyen is the largest town on the island of Spitsbergen. The island is home to an exotic landscape. It is a windswept, treeless, and mountainous polar desert. You can visit the Svalbard Museum. Step back 400 years to Svalbard’s earliest beginnings from the first whalers through Russian Pomors, Norwegian trappers, Arctic expeditions, and coal mining to the present day research and tourism.
Two of Norway’s greatest landmarks, the Nidaros Cathedral and the Archbishop’s Palace, are here in Norway’s first capital. Despite being Norway’s third largest city, wild animals can be seen. Otters and beavers thrive, and foxes, moose and deer are not uncommon sights.
Surrounded by tall mountains and situated on the Romsdalsfjord, Andalsnes is often referred to as "The Alp town by the fjord". From here you can visit nearby Stigfoss Falls - one of the most famous waterfalls in Norway, plummeting 600 feet down the mountainside. Or take an excursion that passes through Norway's most dramatic scenery to view jagged mountains, sparkling rivers, tumbling waterfalls and the famous Troll Peaks and Troll Wall.
Sognefjord is the largest and most well known fjord in Norway, the longest open (ice free) fjord in the world and it’s on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. This land abounds with natural treasures: thundering waterfalls cascading down steep mountains; ice-blue glaciers hemmed in by sky-reaching mountains; and emerald green fjords everywhere you look. There are also unique museums, heritage sites and stave churches that can be explored throughout the region.
We disembark in Southampton and proceed to London where we enjoy a panoramic sightseeing tour. Highlights include Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, Big Ben, the Tower of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Canadian War Memorial and much more. Our tour finishes at our centrally located hotel where we will have some time at leisure before our Farewell Dinner.
We fly home with Air Canada.
