Jul 08 Flam, Norway Arrive: 8:00AM Depart: 5:00PM
Surrounded by steep mountainsides, roaring waterfalls, and deep valleys, Flåm is located off one of the hidden arms of the Sognefjord. To fully appreciate the breadth of this region, leave the harbor behind to reach Gudvangen, a tiny hamlet at the tip of spectacular Nærøyfjord. This 11-mile-long fjord is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and rated by the National Geographic Society as the world’s number one natural heritage site.

Jul 09 Olden, Norway Arrive: 9:00AM Depart: 6:00PM
Anticipate becoming enamored with the lesser-known, Norwegian town of Olden, a quaint little village located between steep mountains and roaring waterfalls. And then there’s the Briksdal Glacier, famous for beautiful surroundings between high peaks and roaring waterfalls, dropping almost 4,000 feet into the narrow Briksdal valley below. To get an even closer look, try your hand at glacier walking with snowshoes and ice axe in hand. The small village of Olden has a population of approximately 500 people, but even with its miniscule size, you can find cafés, grocery stores and shops in the center of town. You can also paddle your way around the magnificent green water of the Nordfjord, a serene experience surrounded by mountains, waterfalls and glaciers at sea level
Jul 10 Geiranger, Norway Arrive: 8:00AM Depart: 8:00PM
The tiny village of Geiranger is home to major adventures, as the area’s unique natural surroundings were created during a succession of ice ages when glaciers carved out deep fjords and shaped the high mountains. The crown jewel of all the Norwegian fjords is Geirangerfjord. The entire area, from the snow-covered mountain tops to the clear, blue water, were included on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites. Among the extraordinary features are the Seven Sisters waterfalls, jutting out from the cliff sides in seven separate cataracts and creating a curtain you can walk behind. Travelers seeking a thrilling experience will appreciate the 11 hairpin turns of Trollstigen mountain road, each bend with its own moniker often named after the person who supervised its construction.
Jul 11 Kristiansund, Norway Arrive: 9:00AM Depart: 10:00PM
Not to be confused with its sister city, there is more that separates Kristiansund from Kristansand than a vowel. Kristiansund is Norway’s north star, where many believe that the very first Norwegians settled and where much of Viking history can be traced. With a 300-year-old history as a trading port for fish, you enjoy a well-prepared cod at every restaurant and further immerse yourself in the culture at the Clipfish Museum, built on a mid-18th-century wharf. As the town of Kristiansund is spread across four islands, you will most likely need to use the ferry service to get the most out of your visit. Kristiansund also happens to be home to the architectural treasure of Kvernes, a church built in the 1300s.
Jul 12 Trondheim, Norway Arrive: 8:00AM Depart: 3:00PM
Trondheim is one of the oldest of Norway’s major cities. With wide streets that are largely pedestrian-friendly, it’s a simply lovely city with a long history. Visit the magnificent Nidaros Cathedral, the largest medieval building in Scandinavia. Kristiansten Fortress consists of a central square tower for cannons, which has come to be known as the Donjon, a relic filled with history for the curious to discover. Stiftsgarden Palace, the royal residence, is one of the largest wooden buildings in Northern Europe, offering an intriguing story to entice the mind. The publicly accessible garden around the east side is one of Trondheim’s loveliest corners.
Jul 13 Arctic Circle Crossing Arrive: 7:00AM OVERNIGHT
Arctic Circle Crossing
The stunning Norwegian coastline has to be seen to be believed-especially the remote places that are located above the Arctic Circle. On your crossing, view the soaring, craggy mountains to tranquil fjords, glaciers and quiet seaside villages that comprise the Lofoten archipelago. Vaerøy is the hidden gem of this region, with surprisingly warm waters and snow that rarely stays on the ground for long. Pay close attention as you sail Vaerøy Island’s Mount Mostadfjell, the nesting site of more than a million seabirds, including sea eagles, puffins, arctic terns, and others.
Jul 13 Reine, Norway Arrive: 2:00PM Depart: 10:00PM
Between the Arctic Ocean and the majestic Lofoten peaks, Reine will leave you speechless. Its beauty is limitless and so are the endless ways you can take in its natural wonders, from cycling to hiking to kayaking. With 24 hours of daylight, this is also an amazing destination to photograph and capture that unique Arctic light. What makes Reine so famous is the access to Reinebringen, a verdant mountain that offers an incredible viewpoint of Reine and her neighboring villages, Sakrisøy and Hamnøy. On the water’s edge you can embark on a kayaking expedition for a different perspective of the famed mountain and take in the harbor, small islands with bird sanctuaries, wild shores and the beaches that comprise this idyllic setting.
Jul 14 Troll Fjord- Scenic Navigation
Troll Fjord- Scenic Navigation
Grab your camera and binoculars and find your favorite spot aboard World Navigator, because you are in for an unforgettable scenic navigation of this less-traveled fjord. While the western fjords are known for their size, Trollfjord is only a mile long and extremely narrow, especially at its entrance. Your captain will expertly position the ship at the perfect angles to maximize your viewing pleasure. Perhaps even close enough to the waterfalls for you to feel the mist. Look up and you may catch sight of the white-tailed eagles soaring overhead. In addition to the feathered variety of wildlife, you might also see various species of whales, porpoises, basking sharks and seals in the water.
Jul 15 Honningsvag, Norway Arrive: 8:00AM Depart: 4:00PM
Welcome to the northernmost town of Norway, Honningsvåg, one of the most remarkable destinations on Earth. Enjoy the magnificent landscape as you cross the 71st parallel toward North Cape, the nearly vertical seaward edge of the ice cap of the North Pole. As one of the northernmost points on the continent, the landscape turns into a fantastical spectacle, from forests filled with herds of reindeer to mountain peaks obscured by fog. Bird watching in Honningsvåg is exciting, especially on the little island of Gjesvaerstappan, where all sorts of Arctic seabirds – including gannets, puffins and cormorants – can be seen on the cliffs, along with seals.
Jul 16 Tromso, Norway Arrive: 8:00AM
Not only will you witness magnificent fjords and glaciers throughout Tromsø, Norway, but you will also immerse yourself in a sophisticated cultural life and architectural delights. A superb example of blending the built environment with the natural setting is the Arctic Cathedral, an architectural marvel made up of aluminum-coated concrete panels, making it a stunning façade resembling an iceberg. To see the real icebergs, all you have to do is take the Fjellheisen cable car 1,525 feet above sea level for incredible views of the Norwegian fjords. You can also stroll around the Arctic-Alpine Botanical Garden, visit the Science Centre of Northern Norway or gain new knowledge at the city’s museums including the Polar Museum, Tromsø University Museum, and Perspektivet Museum.
