Just north of the Arctic Circle, Northern Norway is characterised by craggy mountains, colourful fishing villages and dramatic fjords. On board the Rembrandt Van Rijn sail along fascinating fjords, discover remote islands, spot hungry whales feeding in the freezing waters and look out for the elusive northern lights on clear winter nights.

This cruise is prefect for those looking for a really experiential trip along the fjord.

Sail along the base of the Lyngen Alps, across the Lyngen fjord, and stay for the night in Hamnnes, on the island of Uloya. Hamnnes is an ancient trade and fishing settlement originating in the 17th century, with typical wooden warehouses where residents store dried cod. From Hamnnes, sail further northeast into the Kvaenangen Fjord. Sail through the fjords, and in the afternoon find a harbour to spend the night in one of the scenic fishing villages, such as Skjervoy, Seglvik, Reinfjord, or Burfjord. There are good hiking possibilities in the area, for example on the Island of Spildra. Great hikes can also be made in Burfjord, just 50 km from the northerly town of Alta. (B,L,D)
