Many people dream of seeing the northern lights. It’s such a unique phenomenon that only happens in certain parts of the world, one of which is Norway. That’s why family-owned cruise line Havila Voyages is offering epic 11-day astronomy-themed cruises in February, March, and October.

A Celestial Journey With Havila Voyages

These cruises will go from Bergen to Kirkenes and back, taking you on an epic journey along most of the Norwegian coast. But the stunning views aren’t the only thing this crew has to offer. On the February and October cruises, you can hear lectures from Ian Ridpath, a member of the Royal Astronomical Society’s outreach team. In March, the cruise will be joined by John Zarnecki, who’s the former president of the Royal Astronomical Society.

They’ll cover lots of topics, like rocket science, man’s search for extraterrestrial life, and of course, astronomy. Since Havila Voyages is also a ferry company, the ships will visit various ports per day, giving you plenty of chances to see what Norway has to offer.

A Cruise Along Norway’s Scenic Route

For a personalized experience, you can book excursions that showcase the finest offerings along the route. Whether it’s e-biking, dogsledding, indulging in food tours, or immersing in wildlife viewing, there’s a diverse range of activities to keep everyone engaged.

What’s unique, however, is that in some cases you can go on an excursion at one port and then rejoin the cruise at a different port! This is different from most typical cruises, making this a one-of-a-kind experience.

Chasing the Northern Lights

But, perhaps most importantly, is that you’re likely to finally see those incredible northern lights while on the cruise. If you don’t, you’re lucky, because Havila Voyages has a “Northern Lights Promise!”
