The park's most popular attraction is the Monolith column, measuring 46 feet high, it is carved from a single block of granite and took three stone sculptors 14 years (1929-43) to complete.

DAY 4 - Flight to Kirkenes, Afternoon Embarkation
A short flight takes you to Kirkenes, a small town near the Russian border and the Sami communities of northern Scandinavia. Known as the capital of the Barents region and the gateway to the East, people here speak Norwegian, Sami, Finnish and Russian. Continue to the port for embarkation on the coastal cruise ship. After arrival formalities, time to refresh and get ready for lunch on board as you begin your five day journey south, captivated by your first views of the majestic wilderness. Look forward to immersing yourself within a uniquely Norwegian sailing experience, often deemed "the most beautiful cruise in the world". As you journey through the fjords you will call on remote small ports that larger ships are unable to reach.

Later, dinner together with your Tour Manager sets the mood for the amazing voyage through Norway's most spectacular waterways

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 5 - Hammerfest
Dock this morning in Hammerfest, the world's northernmost town. Despite its remote location, it was the first Norwegian town to have electric street lighting and its own power station. A well protected harbor has been the cornerstone of the town's growth with a booming fishing industry that competes with some of Norway's major ports. Just before midnight tonight, the ship docks in Tromsø, one of the best places in Norway to possibly view the Northern Lights*. Tonight's dinner together on board caps the day*Northern Lights viewing is subject to correct weather conditions and sightings cannot be guaranteed.

DAY 6 - Vesteralen and Lofoten Islands
A highpoint of your cruise is the voyage today through the magnificent Lofoten and Vesteralen islands. Warmed by the Gulf Stream, this collection of Arctic islands off the northwest coast of Norway are renowned for their spectacular natural beauty -- steep jagged mountain peaks, stark wilderness, white sandy beaches and tiny picturesque fishing villages. Here, observe how the ship navigates magnificently through a remarkable network of inlets before arriving in the port town of Svolvaer, quaint capital of the Lofoten Islands, easily identified by the backdrop of its towering Svolværgeita Mountains. Time to discover the small fishing village and soak up the Bohemian atmosphere. Reflect on the day's surreal beauty during dinner together

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 7 - Helgeland Coast, Arctic Circle, Seven Sisters
Awake to an exceptional day filled with spectacular scenery! As you cruise along the magical Helgeland Coast, vistas of thousands of islets, fertile farmlands and steep granite walls encircle you. Cross the Arctic Circle and pass the idyllic town of Sandnessjoen and on the approach to Bronnoysund, view the mythical Seven Sisters mountain range. Apart from the sheer beauty of the mountains and its waterfalls, the myth about the beautiful seven sisters tells tales of how these female trolls were turned to stone, now captivating sailors as they pass by. In the evening, gather together for conversation and a delectable dinner
Overnight: Coastal Cruise
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 8 - Royal City of Trondheim, Scenic Sailing
Dock this morning in ancient Trondheim, Norway's oldest city and first capital, with its colorful history mirrored in its handsome architecture. The city, known as the historical, religious, and technological capital of Norway, is dominated by its University of Science and Technology, as well as the towering Nidaros Cathedral, built over the burial place of St. Olav, the country's patron saint and the Archbishop's Palace, one of the best preserved building complexes of its kind in Europe. Later the ship passes the islands of Munkholmen, Hitra, and thousands of islets before crossing the open sea on the way to Molde.

After disembarkation, transfer to the hotel where you can drop off your bags before setting out on a city walk with your Tour Manager.
