Many Norwegians say that autumn is the time to go hiking, when the air is clear and the countryside turns red and gold. Or experience the winter fjords either on foot, snowshoes or by cable car. Our three winter cruises are designed to enjoy this snowy wonderland to the full. When the sun sets, the Northern Lights may display for us, supplying some memorable and magical night time aurora views. SHORE WALKS AND EXCURSION HIGHLIGHTS: Sortland - The port lies at the northern end of the Lofoten Islands. A short walk from the ship brings us to the start of the trail up Steiraheia. A local guide€companies us to the summit from where there are excellent 360 views Leknes - Towards the southern end of the Lofoten Islands, its a short journey by bus to our hike up Holandsmelen with a local guide for fabulous views. Lerwick - From the capital of the Shetland Islands we travel to St Ninians Isle for a guided walk to see ruins, wild moors and hear tales of smugglers and buried treasure. lesund - Norways Art Nouveau city, beautifully situated on a peninsula surrounded by mountains and sea. Its low altitude means that the panoramic path above the city is normally clear in winter. Trondheim - The citys great attraction is the Nidaros Cathedral. We have a sightseeing walk around Trondheim and walk the Lade Trail for a short distance along the coast. Troms - Beyond the Arctic Circle, the city traditionally styled as the gateway to the Arctic. We don snowshoes for a hike with a local guide on the hill of Kvalya over the wonderful wintry landscape. Alta - Beyond the Arctic Circle, we have a double arctic thrill here, taking a dog sled ride and visiting the Ice Hotel. There should also be time to visit the local museum containing information about arctic rock carvings. Narvik - Beyond the Arctic Circle. We drive inland for a guided visit to the Polar Park, the worlds northernmost animal park. It is home to Norways largest predators such as bear, wolves and lynx, as well as deer, moose, reindeer and muskox. Kristiansund - A city built very attractively on four islands. We hike from the harbour to Vanndamman Lake and then to the Varden viewpoint. Bod - A little visited port just to the north of the Arctic Circle. We join with a local guide for a snow-shoeing walk through some beautiful scenery.
