Viking Ocean Cruises Unveils New Winter Northern Lights Itinerary To Explore Norway’s Far North

June 30, 2017 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Viking Cruises today announces a new itinerary that will give your clients 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 in January to March 2019, the In Search of the Northern Lights itinerary will establish Viking as one of the few cruise lines to offer a full-length itinerary in the Arctic Circle in the winter season. Secure your clients’ bookings before 30 September 2017 to take full advantage of this brand new offer. 

“Scandinavia is Viking territory, and no other cruise line can show guests this part of the world like we can,” said Michelle Black, Managing Director Australia and New Zealand. “The Northern Lights is high on the bucket list for many travellers, and we are thrilled to be able to take our guests to this part of the world, while celebrating our Nordic heritage.”

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 stargaze and scan the dark skies for the northern lights. On the 13-day itinerary, guests 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.

Highlights of the new In Search of the Northern Lights itinerary include a visit to the Northern Lights in Alta during the height of the viewing season, a trip to Sami Community of Maze for an authentic lunch experience, a visit to the Arctic Cathedral in Tromsø and a gondola ride to the ascent of Mt. Ulriken, the highest of Bergen’s famous Seven Mountains.

Book a 13-day In Search of the Northern Lights from $7,995 per person plus receive a $2,000 per couple air credit towards flights for bookings made before 30 September 2017.
