Islands of Northern Norway with the Midnight Sun
Day 1 Liverpool
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your journey to Liverpool. Embark our ship in preparation for a late afternoon sailing.
Days 2-3 At sea
As we sail towards Norway, you’re free to do as much (or as little) as you wish. Maybe start your day off with a brisk walk around the deck. Or opt for a yoga class. Spend the afternoon learning a craft, or perfecting your golf swing. After your choice of dinner, you can catch a show or dance into the night.
Day 4 Kristiansund, Norway
Reaching out into the waters of Norway’s Western Cape on four, bridge-connected islands, the clean, open, operatic city of Kristiansund, and its stunning harbour, is impossible to ignore. Destroyed in World War II, nearly 80% of Kristiansund has been rebuilt since the 1940s. The city is now home to some of Norway’s most iconic modern architecture. Reminders of pre-war Kristiansund still remain, notably the city’s opera house - the oldest in Norway.
Day 5 Intercoastal Scenic Cruising - Crossing the Arctic Circle
We’ll spend today cruising the scenic coast, passing Rørvik, Torghatten (Hat Mountain), and Sandnessjøen the Seven Sisters mountain range before crossing the Arctic Circle; taking you into lands of prolonged days and Midnight Sun.
Day 6 Svolvær - Cruising Lofoten and Vesterålen Archipelagos - Sortland (overnight)
Svolvær, the de facto capital of Norway’s rugged Lofoten archipelago, is a small, yet vibrant town situated on the picturesque southern coast of Austvågøya Island. Begin your scenic sailing through Trollfjord and Raftsundet where your ship will navigate a narrow canyon of glass-like waters and mountains. We overnight in Sortland. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 7 Sortland
Explore the largest town of the beautiful Vesterålen archipelago, is one of Northern Norway’s most unique destinations. Nicknamed ‘Blue Town’, Sortland is almost entirely painted in various shades of blue.
Day 8 Tromsø
Today we’ll arrive in Tromsø, browse the collections in its museums and galleries, and peek inside the iceberg-shaped Arctic Cathedral. Or perhaps take the cable car up to the top of Storsteinen Mountain for a panoramic view across the city and surrounding islands, mountains and fjords.
Day 9 Leknes
We’ll spend the morning in Leknes, one of the first ports inside the Arctic Circle. It looks out over the stunning Lofoten Islands, which are rich in Viking history and Arctic nature; before scenic sailing by Reine.
Day 10 At sea
Keep your brain active with the morning quiz, then perfect your dance moves in the afternoon with a beginners’ class. After dinner, you could continue the dancing theme and join the hosted dancing, or choose to watch the professionals instead.
Day 11 Lerwick, Shetland Islands, Scotland
We’re back in the UK today with a stop in Lerwick, capital of the Shetland Islands. Amble beside its wonderful natural harbour and along atmospheric Commercial Street (known as ‘Da Street’), where shop windows display local cheeses, island-brewed beers and unique gifts.
Day 12 At sea
As we sail home you may want to rest after all your sightseeing. If you’re still full of energy, there‘s lots to fill your time - from quizzes, games and music recitals to walks on deck and dance classes. And of course there’s plenty of opportunity to enjoy all the tasty food options.
Day 13 Liverpool
We arrive back early this morning and your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
