Cruising Russia's White Sea & Norway's North Cape - Tour Summary

Join us on this unique journey that combines the natural beauty of Norway’s coastal fjords, the rugged North Cape and the pristine expanse of Russia’s rarely visited White Sea. In the lands of the Midnight Sun, enter a world of craggy coastlines, dense forests and quaint seaside villages as you cruise in the wake of the Vikings aboard the exclusively chartered, 90-passenger classic small ship M.S. SERENISSIMA. Discover the remote jewels of Honningsvåg and Tromsø, the “gateway to the Arctic.” Enjoy the magical White Nights of Midsummer, when the sun never wholly sets on these spectacular cliffs, bays, inlets and islands. Explore the seldom-seen side of Russia, beginning in Murmansk, and marvel at the historic monastery of Solovetsky Islands, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Continue to Archangelsk and enjoy a traditional Russian welcome before disembarking in Kirkenes. Your understanding and appreciation o this unique region’s history and culture will be enhanced through a customized program of guided excursions, educational presentations and cultural enhancements. A “Wonders of Norway” pre-program option is available.
