      With its rugged coastline, mountainous landscape and vast arctic terrain, Norway is a spectacular destination no matter the season you visit. Winter, however, offers the added majesty of the Northern Lights, the Kirkenes Snow Hotel and an array of Norwegian winter celebrations. Winter cruises along Norway's coastline offer spectacular views of dramatic fjords, coastal islands and picturesque Norwegian cities. Popular winter cruises in Norway include Northern Lights cruises, Sami Day Reindeer Race voyages and Kirkenes Snow Hotel excursions.

    Northern Lights Festival Cruise

    • The northern lights are a major draw for Norway's wintertime tourists. And for music lovers, The Tromsø Northern Lights Festival combines this amazing natural light show with a ten day international music festival. After several weeks of polar night, the festival celebrates the return of dawn to the arctic city of Tromsø. Hurtigruten cruise line offers a seven-day voyage ending with two nights at the festival, where international artists perform classical, symphonic, orchestral, experimental jazz and other music in venues throughout the city. The voyage embarks from the southern city of Bergen and makes stops at ...lesund, Torvik, Trondheim and Harstad. Cruise highlights include a stop at the beautiful city of Molde, a favorite vacation spot of Norwegian writer Henrik Ibsen. The cruise also offers spectacular views of the Lofoten Islands, the Raftsund Strait and the medieval Trondenes church. The final port of call, of course, is a two-night stay in Tromsø, the Paris of the North, for music and arctic views of the spectacular northern lights.

    Kirkenes Snow Hotel Adventure

    • No winter voyage to the arctic is complete without a visit to one of Scandinavia's lovely ice hotels. Constructed each winter from ice and snow, these hotels offer a truly unique arctic experience that can be found nowhere else. The Kirkenes Snow Hotel in northern Norway is one of Norway's most spectacular winter attractions. It offers a snow bar and twenty-plus guest rooms sculpted anew each year from ice and snow. After a cool night in the hotel's icy accommodations, guests can warm up in the lakeside sauna and enjoy a meal in the hotel's snow-free restaurant. Snow-free rooms are also available for those seeking a warmer night's sleep. Winter travelers on Hurtigruten cruise lines can experience a night in the Kirkenes Snow Hotel combined with a five-day Norwegian coastal cruise. The cruise embarks from Bergen and travels north to the arctic through the dramatic fjords and straits of the Norwegian coastline. The cruise offers guests some spectacular views of the Alps, the northern lights and the coastal cities of Trondheim, Tromsø and eventually Kirkenes.
