Viking Cruises has announced a new itinerary that will give guests the rare opportunity to explore the far north in Norway’s winter during a peak period for Aurora Borealis sightings.
Sailing between London and Bergen and departing January to March 2019, the In Search of the Northern Lights itinerary makes Viking one of the few cruise lines to offer a full-length itinerary in the Arctic Circle in the winter season.
Sailing on Viking’s third 930-guest ocean ship, Viking Sky, guests will experience Norway’s pristine beauty and dramatic snow-dusted wilderness, with a chance each day to star gaze and scan the dark skies for the northern lights.
On the 13-day itinerary, travellers will be able to immerse themselves in the rich culture of northern Europe, across seven destinations – with overnight stays in Tromsø, Alta and Bergen, Norway and a complimentary excursion in each port.
