Borealis Searches For The Northern Lights
Cross the arctic circle into norway
Crossing the Arctic Circle into the remote, mountainous region of northern Norway, you will have several opportunities to try and spot the natural wonder that is the Northern Lights. Tromsø and Alta are well-located for this, and there will be extended stays in each of these ports.
Connect with the local culture by meeting the Sami people and experiencing how they’ve adapted to life in the Arctic wilderness.
There are plenty of immersive winter activities for you to try out too: from dog sledding (during which you can even mush your own team of huskies) to ice fishing.
