Day 3

Bergen
Arrive: 0900hrs Depart: 1500hrs Compact and friendly, Bergen was once a great trading city within the Hanseatic League. It remains Norway's second city and, despite being sheltered from the sea by its seven hills and outlying islands, is unashamedly nautical in outlook. Visit the vibrant harbour and fish market, stroll past the wooden warehouses of Bryggen and take the Floibanen funicular to the summit of "Mount" Floyen.

Day 4

Romsdal Alps Depart: 1600hrs Astoria cruises into beautiful Romsdalsfjord and Andalsnes, today. From here, you'll have the opportunity to emjoy an excursion through some of Norway's most spectacular mountain scenery, and perhaps a chance to visit the famous wooden Rodven stave church in its dreamy setting beside the fjord.

Day 5

Day 6

Tromso
Arrive: 1200hrs Depart: 1800hrs The largest settlement beyond the Arctic Circle, Tromso, its magnificent cathedral rising grandly from its bustling centre, is our port of call today.

Day 7

Honningsvag
Arrive: 0900hrs Depart: 1800hrs Cruise way beyond the Arctic Circle, close to the coast of Finnmark.

North Cape

Day 8

Alta
Arrive: 0600hrs Depart: 0200hrs (Day Nine) Astoria spends a long day at her northernmost port of call, remote Alta. Sky-gaze at your leisure (the Northern Lights are often at their most astounding here), or perhaps join exciting optional excursions to explore the Arctic region of Finnmark, home to the Sami people, see the prehistoric rock carvings at Hjemmeluft or visit the famous Ice Hotel.

Day 11

Alesund

Day 12

Stavanger
Arrive: 0930hrs Depart: 1600hrs The prosperous former fishing capital of Stavanger, its sleek modern buildings (especially the striking Norwegian Petroleum Museum) contrasting with the white-painted, clapboard houses of its waterfront and old town, is Astoria’s final Norwegian landfall.
