Day 1: Tromsø, Norway
You will arrive in the Norwegian city of Tromsø, also known as “the Gateway to the Arctic”. The city is located 350 km north of the Arctic Circle and beautifully framed by fjords and mountains peaks. You can explore the renowned Polar Museum and learn more about the first explorers who travelled north to seek fame and fortune, before boarding the small expedition ship M/S Stockholm. After the first tasty dinner on board, you will take the cable car up to Fjellheisen and enjoy the magnificent view of Tromsø sparkling in the night. Back on board, it will be time to head out in the fjord system, marking the beginning of your expedition cruise!

Day 2-5: Expedition
You will travel in early November before the polar darkness settles over Tromsø. Therefore, the sun is still up for several hours each day and for those who are interested in photography, the light at this time of year is captivating. You can enjoy enchanting dusks and dawns. In clear weather, you will have good chances to see the spectacular Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) dancing in the sky. Tromsø is known as one of the best destinations if you dream about watching this fascinating phenomenon.
During the trip, you will also head out on exciting Zodiac cruises and refreshing hikes to explore Tromsø’s dramatic islands up close. Rebbenesøya, Gjossøya, Ringvassøya and Seiland are examples of places you can explore. Perhaps the first snow has fallen and settled over the high mountain peaks, offering marvellous sceneries together with the small picturesque houses and the beautiful fjords.
On board, you will listen to inspiring lectures, enjoy delicious food and keep a lookout for wildlife and Northern Lights out on the deck. If you are interested in fishing, there will be opportunities to try your luck from the ship.

Day 6: Tromsø
In the morning, you will disembark our ship and begin your journey back home.
