Highlights


• Visit the Tørrfiskmuseum (Stockfish Museum) in Å before a bus tour across the Lofoten Islands to Svolvær.

• Visit Vikingen Island, a small island that sits directly on the Article Circle.

• Visit Svartisen and enjoy a scenic walk to a glacier.

• Enjoy a zodiac excursion to Torghatten and the Treana archipelago.

• Trondheim Visit. Trondheim is a modern city surrounded by beautiful forests and mountains, and is home to the remarkable Nidaros Cathedral. Built over the burial site of Saint Olav, the king of Norway in the 11th century, Nidaos Cathedral is the traditional location for the consecration of the King of Norway.

• Geirangerfjord Visit. The fjord is one of Norway's most visited tourist sites and has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Welcome to Tromsø, the capital of northern Norway, known as the "Gateway to the Arctic". Embark in the evening to begin your adventure. We recommend booking some extra time in Tromsø to explore.
The Lofoten archipelago is an enchanting area of picturesque villages by the sea backed with jagged peaks. Go ashore via coach on the island of Å, where cod fishing is still a major part of the economy. In the evening, stay on deck as you cruise into one of Norway's most famous fjords, the short yet dramatic Trollfjord. Search the cliffs on your continuing quest to spot trolls.
Visit Svartisen and Vikingen, for beautiful glaciers and a globe sculpture which marks Vikingen as a point directly on the Arctic Circle.
A UNESCO World Heritage site, Vega is known for picturesque fishing villages with a history of eider down harvesting. Enjoy some opportunities to explore the area on foot.
The rugged coastline of central Norway features some of the world’s most beautiful scenery. The captain will negotiate with local Norwegian pilots to determine our best Zodiac landing options. The mountain scenery and coastline offer breathtaking views. The goal is to visit Torghatten, one of the most bizarre rock formations in Norway and a significant local landmark for the chance to move towards the Træna archipelago, comprised of over a thousand islands.
Continue on to Trondheim. Choose between taking an afternoon hike to the Sverresborg Folk Museum, or enjoy a city tour including the Folk Museum and the elaborate Nidaros Cathedral, built between 1070 and 1300.
Sail deep into one of Norway's most beautiful, and most visited fjords, Geirangerfjord. Enjoy soaking in the views at this UNESCO World Heritage site.
Disembark the G Expedition in the morning. We highly recommend booking extra time to visit this exciting city.
While it is our intention of adhere to the route described above, there is a certain amount of flexibility built into the itinerary and on occasion it may be necessary, or desirable, to make alterations. On the first day of your tour, your Expedition Leader will give you an expedition overview.
