Arctic Highlights cruise in search of the Northern Lights
Published: 04 January 2013
Direct flight from Belfast - 24th February 2013
Fantastic Short voyage along the Northern Norwegian Coast.
Your journey will start at Belfast International airport where you will board your direct flight to Tromso. Tromso is known as the Paris of the North & lies at 69° North above the Arctic Circle.
On arrival you will be transferred to the Quay side where your ship the MS Midnatsol waits & will depart early evening. The next 3 nights are spent onboard the ship travelling to Kirkenes & back where you get the opportunity to visit the ports of Hammerfest & Honningsvag. This is where you will be able to take an optional excursion to visit the North Cape, mainland Europe’s most Northerly point.
You continue onto Kirkenes where the ship turns, but not before you have the chance to see the snow hotel or try some snowmobiling or a trip to the Russian border. You will then retrace the route & head back to Tromso.
Once you arrive back at Tromso in the late evening you will head to your hotel (just around the corner form the quay) & spend 2 nights where you can explore the city & even try dog sledging.
The real reason for this Voyage is to See the Aurora Borealis & being this high up in the Arctic you have every chance of catching a glimpse of this wonderful natural phenomenon, of course this can never be guaranteed.
