Norway is a ruggedly beautiful country of mountains, fjords and glaciers. The 'Land of the Midnight Sun' has delightfully long summer days, pleasantly low-key cities, unspoiled fishing villages and rich historic sites that include Viking ships and medieval stave churches. Norway prizes its stunning natural wonders and retains a robust frontier character unusual in Europe. It's not all frozen tundra, either. The temperate south includes rolling farmlands, enchanted forests and sunny beaches as well as the dramatic Western Fjords.

Honnigsvag, the Top of Norway

Sun, 19 Jun 2022 | By graynomadsusa | Views [7]

HONNIGSVAG, WE ARE TOLD, IS THE northernmost town in Europe. It’s 306 miles north of the Arctic Circle—just over 1300 miles from the North Pole. It is also the only place on this cruise that we’ve booked an excursion—a “... Read more >

Tromsø—Land of the Midnight Sun?

Sat, 18 Jun 2022 | By graynomadsusa | Views [7]

I THINK IT WAS JOHN D. MAC DONALD who wondered what value we would place on a sunset if it occurred once every 20 years. Here in Tromsø where the last sunrise was on May 13, this isn’t just a random musing. There won’t be another sunset ... Read more >

North to Norway

Thu, 16 Jun 2022 | By graynomadsusa | Views [6]

THIS IS OUR SECOND NORWAY CRUISE—it’s really the only affordable way to see Europe’s most expensive country. Our first two ports-of-call were nothing special. Haugesund, once a mainstay of the herring fishing fleet, now makes its living ... Read more >

Tue, 24 Dec 2019 | By david_vanessa | Views [207]

16 Dec 19 The voyage BLOG is a work in progress at the moment… We set off to the Hurtigruten ship terminal and started to use the GPS as a compass using the waypoint that we had saved the previous day. The GPS decided that we should head ... Read more >

Bergen

Mon, 16 Dec 2019 | By david_vanessa | Views [183]

Day 20 - 15 Dec 19 Bergen Bergen is the wettest town in Europe. I am pretty sure last time we visited I never wanted to return. Not because Bergen is not a nice place. It is beautiful both in location and architecture. It just rains a lot.... Read more >

Viking Ship Museum, Bygdøy, and...OH 3%@^

Tue, 11 Dec 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [733] | Comments [2]

For some reason I haven't been sleeping well at all on this journey. Late nights chasing the aurora and limited daylight mean I have to be out there as much as possible. You can't stay inside when the sun rises after 9 AM and sets at 2:30 PM. Yesterday ... Read more >

An Oslo Stroll

Mon, 10 Dec 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [367] | Comments [1]

For much of this trip I was dreading having to spend time in Oslo. The Norwegian capital just doesn't stand out the same way as London, Rome, or Vienna. People travel to France just to go to Paris and to the Netherlands to go to Amsterdam but you'd be ... Read more >

Feeling Hopeless...

Thu, 6 Dec 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [379] | Comments [1]

When the clouds firmly cover the sky and the weather is foul, you can’t stay in one place when searching for the aurora. Today I made a move from Gibostad, on the island of Senja, to Narvik, 2 1/2 hours south. Two nights gone and two nights of ... Read more >

Hoping for the Aurora

Wed, 5 Dec 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [345]

One night of my five nights in the north of Norway is already in the books. The weather and the clouds haven't let up, and I was so exhausted last night I ended up sleeping in until 3 PM today. It was dark by then, and there isn't much to do when it's ... Read more >
