Fabulous Norwegian Fjords From Edinburgh we set sail to Britain's northern most archipelagos of Orkney and Shetland before continuing east to the picturesque port of Bergen, where we explore the city and can enjoy some fresh seafood on the old wharf. Continuing northwards, we arrive at the medieval city of Trondheim. Later, weighing anchor, we begin forays into the fjords on our zodiac boats that allow us to get close to cascading falls and make shore landings in otherwise inaccessible coves.

Description

Lofoten Islands   The enchanting collection of islands that form the Lofotens are rightly famous for their azure waters and the colourful fishermen's cabins that dot the coast. We also plan to cruise in to the nearby Trollfjord, one of Norway's shortest and yet most dramatic fjords. Called the 'Gateway to the Arctic', we end our voayge in Tromsø.

Expedition At a nimble 105 metres (345 ft) in length, with a capacity to hold 124 guests, the Expedition is an ideal vessel to ply polar waters. The ship is large enough to provide stability, speed, spacious cabins and ample public space. Yet she is small enough to manoeuvre in remote areas and get you close to the action. Ship stabilizers ensure a smooth ride in rough waters, such as the infamous Drake Passage, allowing you to enjoy more of your time at sea. A fleet of ten zodiacs allows passengers to get out and actively explore the remote shores of our destinations. The Expedition is a speedy vessel. A top speed of 16 knots means you'll spend less time getting from A to B, and more time to explore your surroundings.

Cabins Prices are based on the use of outward facing, category one cabins on the lower deck. Category one cabins are triple or quad share. They are comfortable with a private toilet and shower, and porthole. The Expedition has a number of different cabin categories, all outside facing and with two beds (apart from suites which have queen size beds). Some have larger windows. We can also offer single occupancy, subject to availability. Call us for details on the cabin choice to fit your requirements.
