14 Days from only
23rd June 2007
From majestic fjords and sparkling glaciers to stunning wildlife and the awe-inspiring Midnight Sun, this very special Midsummer cruise is simply overflowing with memorable and spectacular moments.
All at an incredible time of the year, when the sun - quite literally - never sets! Athena will gently follow the Norwegian coastline, visiting Olden for great views of the giant Jostedal glacier, before continuing to the North Cape where you’re sure to be enthralled by the sight of the Midnight Sun hanging above the ocean.
From here we will cruise deep into the Arctic Circle to the beautiful archipelago of Spitzbergen, which lies halfway between the North Pole and the North Cape. Enjoy truly fabulous glacial vistas and take the chance to spot an array of wildlife including whales, sea lions, walruses, polar bears, Svalbard reindeer, Arctic fox and many rare birds. We will then visit the delightful cities of Tromso and Bergen, before cruising gently back to Harwich.
