The greatest light show on earth

An atmospheric display of green and pink light dancing across the inky dark sky, the spectacular Aurora Borealis is one of nature's most extaordinary wonders. This voyage follows Norway's deeply fissured coastline calling in idyllic fjord villages and charming coastal towns. You'll venture high into the Arctic Circle in your search for the Northern Lights and, if atmospheric conditions are right, you have the chance to witness this simply amazing phenomenon.

 

Magellan boasts a spacious interior, with wide corridors and expansive wooden deck areas providing comfortable surroundings for guests. However, the ship still provides an intimate atmosphere, with a huge range of leisure facilities, including bars and lounges, as well as multiple dining options.

 

Combining expansive, comfortable surroundings and friendly service with stylish entertainment and delicious cuisine , Magellan is the perfect choice for those looking for a greater range of on board facilities.

Day 4

Olden (Norway)

The southernmost of the three short branches at the inner end of Nordfjord terminates in Olden. The charming village sits amongst tidy, well-kept farms on gently sloping, fertile hillsides, which then rise steeply into thickly wooded and rugged peaks. From the village the beautiful Oldendalen Valley runs between towering mountains to the edge of the mighty Jostedalsbreen Glacier. Briksdal Glacier is one of the more accessible arms of the Jostedalsbreen. The creeping pitted tentacle of ice features in optional excursions from Olden together with glorious waterfalls, glacier fed rivers and wonderful mountain lakes.

Day 5

Kristiansund (Norway)

Day 6

Today is spent at sea, getting to know Magellan, her friendly crew and your fellow passengers.

Day 7

Alta (Norway)

The largest town in Finnmark, Alta stretches along the inner part of the Altafjord and on the banks of one of Norway’s best rivers for salmon fishing, the Alta River. Today’s town has three centres. Bossekop with its old trading and market traditions, Elvebakken to the east with the town’s airport and harbour, and the new town with its shops. Large areas of woodlands and parts of the high plateau of Finnmarksvidda surround Alta, which in summer enjoys the white nights of the midnight sun and of a winter night often has the northern lights dancing across its skies.

Day 8

Honningsvåg (Norway)

Though Norwegian law states that a city in Norway must have 5,000 inhabitants, tiny Honningsvaag, a community of around 2,500, is one of the smallest cities in Norway having been granted this status in 1996. The ’city’ lies on the south-eastern side of a large island called Magerøya in the Barents Sea. It is the starting point of excursions to the dramatic North Cape where from a high plateau the monumental 307-metre high cliff plunges into the Atlantic. From here only endless ocean lies between the northernmost point of Europe and the North Pole.

Day 9

Tromso (Norway)

Not surprisingly for a city that lies almost 220 miles north of the Arctic Circle many of Tromsø’s landmarks lay claim to the world’s ‘northernmost’ titles. The ‘Capital of the Arctic’ is home to the world’s northernmost university, cathedral, botanic garden and brewery. A cable car runs to the summit of Mount Storsteinen from where there are wonderful views of the lively and beautiful city built on two islands and the mainland, which are linked by both tunnels and bridges. The Polar Museum is just one of Tromsø’s fine museums and the striking Arctic Cathedral is undoubtedly a highlight.

Day 10

Today is spent at sea, getting to know Magellan, her friendly crew and your fellow passengers.

Day 11

Trondheim (Norway)

Past and present times live together in harmony in Trondheim, located in central Norway. The architecture and surroundings create a beautiful setting. The city is home to a rich variety of historical sites, museums and art galleries.
The Nidaros Cathedral was built over the grave of St. Olav, Norway’s patron saint whose reputation shone far beyond the borders of his country. The Cathedral has an impressive West Wall, richly ornamented in stone with magnificent stained glass windows. It is a sight to behold and a ‘must see’ for any visitor to Trondheim.

Day 12

Åndalsnes (Norway)

Åndalsnes lies at the end of the 88-kilometre long Romsdalfjord at the mouth of the River Rauma. The river, which flows through the Romsdal Valley, was one of the first rivers in Norway to attract British aristocrats and other fly fishing foreigners at the end of the 19th century. The small town is today the administrative centre of Rauma in Norway’s Møre and Romsdal district. Optional excursions feature the beautiful Romsdal Alps with the famous Troll Wall and spectacular winding Troll Path Road. Åndalsnes is also the start of the incredible Rauma Line, a vintage steam train journey through enthralling mountain scenery.

Day 13

Bergen (Norway)

Known as the ‘Gateway to the Fjords’, Bergen is Norway’s second largest city. Yet with a population of less than a quarter of a million, it has the feel of a small town. It is beautifully sited against a backdrop of seven mountains and the funicular ride to the summit of Mount Fløien affords wonderful panoramic views of Bergen and Norway’s attractive coastline. Overlooking the harbour the colourful Bryggen wharf is the face of Bergen. The characteristic wooden gabled buildings were once the home and offices of Hanseatic merchants but today house shops selling crafts and traditional souvenirs.

Day 14

Today is spent at sea, getting to know Magellan, her friendly crew and your fellow passengers.

Day 15

This morning the Magellan arrives back in Tilbury at the end of a wonderful cruise.
