Join us for the holiday of a lifetime…
THE ITINERARY …
On this exciting Arctic adventure, our aim is to offer you a very unique experience and target landscapes and nature that can be rare or very unique.
Imagine joining a small group of around 16, on an exclusive ship and sailing in calm and protected water, searching for whales, nature subjects and stunning landscapes. Our ship offers a huge deck area!
We will land each day and at night, look for the famed Northern Lights. Nature guarantees nothing, but what we can guarantee is that the skipper, crew and your WPA team will work hard to offer the best available experiences.
NORTHERN LIGHTS AND AMAZING SCENERY!
Spotting the dancing lights, known as Aurora Borealis, is a bucket list item for many travellers. From the end of September until the beginning of April is the best time to spot it. Especially during the long winter days of January, you are more likely to spot the dancing lights. As you might know, it is a natural phenomenon, therefore it is never guaranteed that it is visible on a given day. So we back ourselves up by offering several days.
The expedition cruise takes you through the majestic fjords of northern Norway. The snowy mountain peaks rise up from the fjords, which makes for breathtaking scenery.
