Set sail from Dover onboard the award-winning Saga Sapphire to discover the delights of beautiful Norway. The stunning approach to Bergen, passing Svanøy Island and Jostedalsbreen glacier, offers the perfect overture to this magnificent 17-night small ship exploration. Cruise the length of the sceptre in the crown jewels of Scandinavia, from Stavanger in the south, to Honningsvåg in the Arctic Circle. Deep in the Arctic Circle, you can take a tour through the barren tundra to the Russian border or perhaps visit Tromsø - known as the ‘Gateway to the Arctic’ on account of the many expeditions it has launched.
Other opportunities on this exciting adventure include getting under the skin of the Sami people on a rousing hike of Mount Salen or investigating the tragic German occupation at the Narvik War Museum. You’ll also enjoy an overnight stay onboard in Hammerfest, one of the most northerly cities in the world. Add these amazing activities to an exploration of an island lost in time, a road trip across Norway’s ‘Engineering Feat of the Century’ and sampling fishan - the Norwegian version of fish and chips in Kristiansund, and you can honestly say that you’ve experienced all that delightful Norway has to offer. Onboard, you'll be joined by wildlife experts from ORCA, so look forward to the chance to spot whales, dolphins, seabirds and an array of other wonderful wildlife out on deck throughout your voyage. Your Norwegian experience is enhanced further with interesting experts joining the cruise, including Television presenter, explorer and author, Benedict Allen, history expert, Bob Horner and wildlife expert, Ralph Todd. For more relaxing pursuits onboard your boutique ship, indulge in some pampering at the serene Aqua Spa, curl up with the latest bestseller in the library and make the most of the exciting entertainment and activities. With all of your meals included onboard, together with a choice of wines with both lunch and dinner, you’ll want for nothing on this spectacular summertime adventure with Saga.
