This cruise provides an ideal setting to chase the lights, where you can enjoy the warmth and luxury of the spacious interior saloon, relax with your feet up like you're lounging in your own living room, read a coffee table book, sip hot drinks, eat dinner, chat with your crew or fellow worldly travelers and go outside when the lights show up or when you feel like checking out the scenery.

DETAILED TOUR DESCRIPTION
Our luxury Norweigen northern lights cruise departs from Tromsø, the Paris of the North in Northern Norway. Tromsø is an ideal destination for viewing this special light show. With very little light pollutio just outside of the town, we don’t have to sail far for the opportunity to view the northern lights at sea. With this area being above the Arctic Circle, the Tromsø northern lights are a spectacular sight to behold. As we depart our home port, you can enjoy the top deck under cozy blankets with a warm drink. We’ll cruise out to the best place to see the lights depending on the weather for the day. Settle into our dining room for a traditional dinner of reindeer stew paired with local root vegetables and fresh bread. Your guides will share local stories and answer any questions you have about Northern Norway. Now full and content, you can opt to take a soak in our outdoor hot tub. This is literally the best way to stay warm and keep an eye out for the auroras. Alternately, if you’re not a water lover, you can snuggle up under the blankets on the top deck and sip hot tea. Around 11 o'clock, we’ll slip back into the harbor and conclude our hot tub and northern lights cruise. Ready to soak & watch for the auroas?
