ABOUT CRUISE NORWAY Cruise Norway market Norway as the world’s ultimate nature-based cruise destination. Established in 1992, we concentrate out activities on the international cruise market, working B2B to present and promote Norwegian cruise ports to cruise lines, cruise operators, international press and agencies selling cruises.

Working towards a common goal, Cruise Norway and its members seek to contribute to a simple planning process by providing the cruise industry with comprehensive knowledge about Norwegian cruise ports and destinations. This is accomplished through participation on various international arenas and conferences, through membership with CLIA, meetings with cruise lines, by arranging cruise conferences and seminars, by arranging exiting and informative FAM-trips, by producing an up to date web site, by producing a Winter Wonderland Cruise Manual and by producing our bi-annual Cruise Manual which you are reading now. Our aim to is maintain and increase the number of cruise calls and cruise passengers to Norway and at the same time ensure that each cruise call is beneficial for both visitors, locals and local suppliers – be they attractions, museums, transport companies, guide providers, local shops and more. At the same time, we focus on how to best maintain our grand and unspoiled nature; the very essence of what cruising in Norway is all about.

In close cooperation with our Norwegian stakeholders and member ports, we developed our quality guidelines in 2008. The guideline’s main intention is to help Norwegian cruise ports deliver excellent quality and service at all stages. The guidelines were revised Spring 2016. For more information, please visit www.cruise-norway.no and feel free to contact us at post@cruise-norway.no


CRUISING BEAUTIFUL NORWAY The Cruise Norway Manual that you are holding in your hands gives you a quick overview of our members’ ports and their attractions and shore excursion possibilities. Our aim is to provide cruise lines and travel agents with relevant information regarding ports and shore excursion possibilities in Norway.

This guide is the only comprehensive overview of Norwegian cruise ports. The presentation of each cruise port gives concise information about the most important attractions, full day and half-day excursions and offers useful, practical information about harbour conditions. The presentation follows the geography of Norway i.e. it starts in the south and finishes in the north. On page 7 you will find a useful overview of distances in nautical miles between the ports and on pages 8 and 9 you will find an overview of distances from pilot embarkation area to the various cruise ports. The information is limited due to space but you will find information that is more detailed at www.cruise-norway.no or by contacting the individual cruise ports and local destination companies. The essence of Norway is our spectacular nature, our culture and heritage and our environment. Norway have as many as eight sites listed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List - seven of which are cultural and one of which is natural. More sites are under consideration for the tentative list.

TOP REASONS WHY NORWAY SHOULD BE YOUR NEXT CRUISE DESTINATION Cruising in Norway - the world’s ultimate nature-based cruise destination 1. Creative, exciting itineraries With the world’s second longest coast line stretching more than 100.915 km, Norway offers unique possibilities for sailing schedules with various length and content. With around 40 ports and destinations, Norway has something on offer for every taste and every brand. Your sailing schedule may include bustling modern cities and small rural fjord villages in one short cruise, or take your passengers as far as the North Cape and Svalbard. Cruising in Norway offers you everything from Polar Bears in Svalbard, the Midnight Sun in Northern Norway, the soft and varied coastline of Mid-Norway interspersed with characteristic islands and small towns, the sharp, rugged beauty of Fjord Norway with tall mountains, glaciers and fjords cutting deep into the country, the welcoming picturesque coast of Southern Norway and last but not least; the wide panoramic fjord leading to Oslo; our modern capital. 2. Breathtaking waterfalls, high mountains and panoramic fjords More than anything, Norway is famous for its wide panoramic fjords. Surrounded by high mountains, the iconic fjords give ships the unique possibility of sailing deep into the country where the landscape can be very different from the coast. Nine of the world’s tallest waterfalls are located in Norway! Some of Norway’s spectacular waterfalls can be viewed from the ship while sailing into one of Norway’s many fjords, while others can be seen on one of the many

shore excursions offered from our ports. In 2006, the breathtaking Geirangerfjord and the stunning Nærøyfjord were rated as top best cared-for UNESCO World Heritage Sites. 3. Outdoor activities and shore excursions From Norwegian ports, shore excursions including a wide range of quality assured outdoor activities suitable for most physical levels are available. Passengers can experience kayaking, mountain walks, fishing, golf under the Midnight Sun, killer whales, king crab safaris, polar expeditions, RIB excursions and much, much more. 4. Cultural and historical attractions Shore excursions in Norway offer great opportunities for visitors to experience rich Norwegian culture, traditions and heritage - from architecture, folk dancing, museums and literature to festivals and concerts. 5. A safe cruise destination Norway is a financially stable and high-tech country situated in a quiet corner of the world. Norway is widely recognized as a safe destination, the Norwegian system of ISPS Security, Pilot Service and Coast Guard, are internationally recognized. Norway’s long costaline is dotted with more than 67,000 islands, enabling cruise ships to sail in sheltered waters.

6. Local food and cuisine Norwegians are proud of their traditions, which is also reflected in the food. In spite of international influence, Norwegians treasure their heritage when it comes to food. Traditions are maintained, especially during holiday periods. Traditional food, often with a modern touch, is served at restaurants throughout the land. 7. Winter Wonderland and all-year cruising During the last few years Norway has established itself as a popular cruise destination also in the winter. In 2009 the first winter cruise was operated along the Norwegian coast and since then more and more cruise lines have taken the opportunity to cruise along the Norwegian coast in winter time. The magical Northern Lights - the Aurora Borealis, fascinates visitors in winter when the sun does not rise above the horizon in the far north for months. However, Norway in winter is far more than searching for the illusive Lady Aurora. It is trying your hand at dogsledding, driving a snowmobile for the first time, sleeping in the icy cold beauty of an Ice Hotel, skiing and visiting and learning about the indigenous people of Norway; the Sami people. Winter cruising basically takes place in the months of February and March.

FACTS ABOUT NORWAY Norway is well known for its natural attractions such as the fjords, mountains, glaciers and the Midnight Sun, but equally worth experiencing is our culture, heritage and day to day modern life. The first ever cruise to Norway was as early as 1887 when the purpose built cruise ship St. Sunniva, able to accommodate 142 passengers, sailed the Norwegian fjords. The ship also sailed all the way to the North Cape and ever since, Norway has been a popular cruise destination for all major cruise lines. Facts about Norway System of government: Constitutional monarchy and parliamentary democracy Area: 385,155 square km Population: 5,2 million (as per July 2016) Capital: Oslo Currency: 1 NOK = € 0,11 / USD 0,12 / GBP 0,09 (as per December 2016) Time zone: Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) +1 hour Constitution day: May 17 Shopping Typical Norwegian buys are pewter, wood carvings and knitted goods. Norway has a well-organized tax-free shopping for tourists and VAT refunds are offered in most Norwegian ports. Fjords Norway is famous for its many fjords, quietly winding their way deep into the country underneath steep majestic mountains. The Geirangerfjord, lined with beautiful waterfalls and the narrow Nærøyfjord proudly feature on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The King of the fjords, Sognefjord, is the world’s longest fjord and the Queen of the fjords;

Hardangerfjord, is famous for its cherry and apple trees and is among the most visited fjords in the world. Northern Lights – Aurora Borealis The spectacular Northern lights are a natural phenomenon most common in Northern Norway and are frequently observed above the Arctic Circle between late autumn and early spring. Midnight Sun The sun does not set in the summer above the Arctic Circle, which means that visitors to Northern Norway can enjoy 24 hours of daylight at this time of year. Climate The climate in Norway, in spite of its location in the North, is much milder than one would expect. Due to the Gulf Stream, temperatures along the coast of Norway are 5-8°C higher than at comparable latitudes elsewhere. The Gulf Stream warms the Norwegian coast and helps keep the ports free from ice.

The Sami people The Samis are the indigenous people of the northern parts of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. There are approx. 80,000 Samis with their own language, traditions and nomadic way of life. Most of them live in Norway. Sapmi, formerly also known as Lapland, is the name for the Sami’s historical settlement area. The Sami have been living in Sapmi for over 10,000 years, and today they have their own parliament in Karasjok as well as their own flag. Trolls Trolls are an important part of Norwegian folklore. These human-like creatures vary in size and appearance, but are commonly perceived as both dangerous and a little stupid. They usually live in caves or deep in the forest, and only emerge from their hiding places after sunset. Legend has it that they turn to stone upon contact with the sun. Several places in Western and Northern Norway are named after trolls such as Trollheimen, Trollstigen, Trollhatten and Trollveggen (the Troll Wall).

Viking history The Vikings have a bad reputation as raiders, but they were also traders, explorers, settlers and magnificent shipbuilders as well as being used as lifeguards in the Roman Empire. The Viking Age started in AD 793 with the attack on the monastery of Lindisfarne in England and ended in 1066 with the battle of Stamford Bridge where the last Norwegian Viking King, Harald Hardråde, fell.

CRUISE NORWAY PRODUCT MANUAL 2017/ 2018


UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE World Heritage Norway is the name of the organization representing all the sites, and the four points on Struve`s Geodetic Arc, which are inscribed on the UNESCO list of cultural and natural heritage sites. The first places in Norway to achieve this status were: Bryggen in Bergen, and Urnes Stave Church, both of which were entered in 1979. Heritage is something that is passed on from earlier generations and what we pass on to future generations. Cultural heritage, as well as natural heritage, is an irreplaceable source of knowledge, pleasure and inspiration for all peoples; and it is our most important point of reference with regards to who we are, and where we come from. Directorate for Cultural Heritage P.O.B. 8196 Dep. NO-0034 Oslo Tel.: +47 22 94 04 00 - Fax: +47 22 94 04 04 www.ra.no

THE MERIDIAN COLUMN The Struve Geodetic Arc was the first technical and scientific object to be inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Measurements were made in the form of a chain of triangulation along the meridian stretching from Ismail on the Black Sea in the South to Fuglenes in Hammerfest in the North. A meridian is an imaginary line on the Earth’s surface running from Pole to Pole.

THE ROCK ART AT ALTA This group of petroglyphs in the Alta Fjord, north of the Arctic Circle, bears the traces of a settlement dating from about. 4200 to 500 B.C. The thousands of engravings add to our understanding of the environment and human activities on the fringes of the Far North in prehistoric times. The rock carvings depict Stone Age hunting of reindeer, elk and bear; bird catching, halibut fishing, a lot of boats, magical symbols, weapons, ceremonial animal-headed poles … and much more. Alta Museum is situated in the middle of one of the biggest fields of rock carvings, and pathways have been made that lead you through the rock art park. Alta. Photo: Kurt Hamann / Innovation Norway

PAGE 10

In 1993 Alta Museum received “The European Museum of the Year Award”.


THE VEGA ARCHIPELAGO Just south of the Arctic Circle you will find the Vega archipelago, with 6500 islands, islets, and skerries. In 2009, the British newspaper The Observer put the Vega Islands on their list of “20 undiscovered island gems”.

Tåvær island, Vega Photo: Inge Ove Tysnes

Vega is an ornithologist’s dream. Chief among the bird population are eider ducks, raised for their down. – The islanders still make houses for the birds and the houses to nest in can still be seen, alongside lighthouses, fishing villages and dramatic landscapes. The archipelago reflects the way fishermen and farmers have, over the past 1,500 years, maintained a sustainable living.

RØROS MINING TOWN AND THE CIRCUMFERENCE

Horse and sleigh, Røros. Photo: Terje Rakke / Nordic Life

In August 2010, ‘Røros Mining Town and the Circumference’ was included on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites. The new World Heritage area is an extension of the World Heritage Site of Røros Mining Town, which as early as 1980 was awarded a place on the UNESCO list. On your journey through this area you will experience how mining operations shaped our region. The colourful and charming little mountain town of Røros has been shaped by mining operations and agriculture through the ages. The town centre hosts a thriving handicraft community, workshop outlets, quaint little boutiques and cafés and restaurants that offer local specialities made from the produce of the season.

URNES STAVE CHURCH This is the oldest stave church in Norway, built in 1132, and the only stave church to be included on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. The church contains ornaments dating from the 1060s and is unusually ornately decorated. It is beautifully situated on the southern shore of the Lustrafjord, the innermost arm of the Sognefjord. The area also contains the oldest traces of church building in Norway.

THE WEST NORWEGIAN FJORDS Fjords are among the most dramatic and spectacular landscapes on the planet. The World Heritage Area, the West Norwegian Fjords, embraces some of the longest, deepest, narrowest and most beautiful fjords in the world. Their scenery and cultural heritage have spellbound visitors down the ages. Many people consider the fjords the very symbol of Norway, the foremost nation of fjords in the world.

The World Heritage Area comprises two sub-areas, the Geirangerfjord and the Nærøyfjord. Together, these areas have qualities that resulted in them being inscribed on the UNESCO list of the world’s cultural and natural heritage.

BRYGGEN - THE HANSEATIC WHARF IN BERGEN This UNESCO protected old merchant quarter is the only preserved business district from the Hanseatic period, reminding us of the town’s importance as a part of the Hanseatic League’s trading empire. Many fires, the last in 1955, have ravaged the characteristic wooden houses of Bryggen. Its rebuilding has traditionally followed old patterns and methods, thus leaving its main structure preserved. Today, some 62 buildings remain of this former townscape. Bryggen, the Hanseatic warf in Bergen Photo: Bergen Tourist Board / Johnny Mazzilli

RJUKAN-NOTODDEN INDUSTRIAL HERITAGE SITE

Vemork by night Photo: Visit Telemark

Located in a dramatic landscape of mountains, waterfalls and river valleys, the site comprises hydroelectric power plants, transmission lines, factories, transport systems and towns. The complex was established by the Norsk-Hydro Company to manufacture artificial fertilizer from nitrogen in the air. It was built to meet the Western world’s growing demand for agricultural production in the early 20th century. The company towns of Rjukan and Notodden show workers’ accommodation and social institutions linked by rail and ferry to ports where the fertilizer was loaded. The Rjukan-Notodden site manifests an exceptional combination of industrial assets and themes associated to the natural landscape. It stands out as an example of a new global industry in the early 20th century.

Active, Urban and Green It’s perhaps this combination of stunning nature and capital city vibe with world class museums and attractions which makes Oslo such a unique cruise destination. Cruise vessels can dock at a great location in the city centre. A walk along the quay takes you in one direction to the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, and in the other direction to the Opera. From the port you can see the City Hall and the Nobel Peace Centre. A 10 minute ferry-boat ride will take you to the peninsula of Bygdøy where some of the city’s most famous tourist attractions are located. ATTRACTIONS/EXCURSIONS Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art with the building designed by Renzo Piano, an architectural masterpiece, the Tjuvholmen neighbourhood has become a new destination in Oslo. The Museum contains works from the most innovative contemporary artists.

SANDEFJORD CRUISE PORT Sandefjord Welcomes You

Welcome to the friendly seaside town of Sandefjord, blessed with a long and beautiful coastline in addition to having a rich historical heritage. Take part in the history of Sandefjord with memories from the Viking Age, the glory years of its rise in popularity as a Spa Town in the 19th Century, the Whaling Period, as well as modern times of course. We offer a wide variety of excursions with optional duration. Oslo is easily reached on an organized day trip.

ATTRACTIONS/EXCURSIONS: “SKJÆRGÅRD”, min. 2 hours … It is so unique that the word doesn’t even exist in the English language. Sandefjord has lots of it and we would love to share it with you. It is not an archipelago or skerries but hundreds of small and larger islands lining the coast. Some are inhabited but most of them are merely rocks polished by thousands of years of wear and tear by waves and wind. Scattered with wild flowers and an abundance of sea birds, they are our most precious treasures. Two old lighthouses are situated at the scenic approach of the fjord, offering a peek into the life of the Norwegian sailor. Sandefjord offers memorable boat trips where guests will experience this right on the water. From the pier in the town centre, the steam driven whaler “Southern Actor” takes the guests on a silent cruise among the islands. Or RIB boats take those who prefer a slightly rougher approach to see and explore the islands and the fjord. Both options are operated by crews with excellent

The city is surrounded by lovely forested hills, and the Nidelven River winds through the city. The charming old streets at Bakklandet bring you back to architectural traditions and the atmosphere of bygone days. It has been, and still is, a popular pilgrimage site, due to the famous Nidaros Cathedral. Trondheim is the 3rd largest city in Norway – vivid and lively, with everything a big city can offer, but still with the friendliness of small towns. Choose between a rich variety of historical sights, museums and art galleries – and look forward to an unforgettable cultural and historical experience.

BRØNNØYSUND

In the centre of Norway, among thousands of islands Brønnøysund welcomes you to embark on an exploration in fascinating coastal history as well as a tour in an ancient and unique geological landscape. The area has 10045 islands and more than 10,000 years of history to share. It includes Stone Age findings, Viking history and war history, as well as modern technology and contemporary daily life. The Torghatten Mountain, with the hole straight through it, is our most well-known landmark among many in the region. The Vega Archipelago World Heritage Site gives an insight into the hard, but interesting life of the Islanders over the centuries. Brønnøysund bridge gives a beautiful panoramic view and there are easy hiking routes within walking distance from the centre of the town. ATTRACTIONS/EXCURSIONS Mythical Mountain Torghatten Torghatten is one of Norway’s most iconic tourist attractions, known for the spectacular hole through the mountain. The hole is a marine abrasion cave that, during several periods of higher sea level in the last Ice Age, eventually became a tunnel. People feel small as they wander through the hole, with a length of 160 m, height of 35 m and width of 15-20 m. The mountain, like many along the Helgeland Coast, is the subject of many myths and legends and it is a place which visitors simply must experience when they visit Brønnøysund. Torghatten mountain is one of the geosites in the Trollfjell Geopark, which aims to provide world-class activities and thrills based on the unique geological history and localities in the region. The bus tour starts with a sightseeing through town, before crossing the splendid Brønnøysund Bridge and continuing 14 km to the foot of Torghatten. We then commence the hike to the hole. We follow a natural path up the mountain, and after around 30 minutes we reach the entrance. From here, we can enjoy the fantastic view and walk through the hole itself before following the same path down again.

Velfjord Open Air Museum and Nøstvik Church Velfjord Open Air Museum has an idyllic location in Velfjord, a fjord with seven distinct arms. The museum comprises a large collection of buildings and artefacts from the 16th and 17th centuries. It was set up to illustrate the daily life during this time and has a full range of tools for a variety of crafts. The Velfjord Museum also features an exhibition of Saami articles of everyday use. The Nøstvik Church is a log-built cruciform church dating from 1674. The Church is one of the oldest wooden churches in northern Norway. It features some historical content, including an altarpiece and church bell gifted to the church in 1758. Sømna Open Air Museum The rural museum lies beautifully beside the Church at Vik and has 12 old and restored buildings from the 19th and early 20th century. The museum provides a unique insight into the the fishing and farming way of life for both men and women, and exhibits tools and artifacts that they used in their work. The tour includes a demonstration of baking local traditional bread, as well as tasting of local traditional treats. A visit to the Vik Church, built in 1876 with a cruciform plan, is also included in the tour.

Nevernes Havn Nevernes Havn, with an idyllic location overlooking the Velfjorden, is a centre for coastal heritage in southern Helgeland. Through extensive exhibitions with artefacts dating from the 18th century to the present, Nevernes tells the story of the people of Helgeland, during times of peace and war. Nevernes was once a commonly used harbour for local fishermen and at the Brygga local fishing boats, nets and other artefacts are exhibited. Brattås House is a farm house from 1850 with inventory, as well as metal and wooden tools. Nevernes Gaard features an exceptional collection of war memorabilia from World War II, with displays ranging from uniforms and personal effects to equipment and small firearms. Home visit to a traditional Norwegian coffeetime You will be welcomed by one of the locals to take traditional Norwegian morning or afternoon coffee in a perfectly ordinary Norwegian home. We walk in small groups from the centre of Brønnøysund and we are welcomed to come inside by one of the residents of the household to enjoy a cozy and informal cup of coffee. You may of course enjoy a nice cup of tea instead of coffee but coffee has been our local favourite beverage for the last decade. Just as tea has been for other cultures.

UNESCO Island Vega The Vega archipelago was inscribed on UNESCO’s list of world heritage sites in 2004. The Vega archipelago gained world heritage status mainly due to the unique interaction between the eider ducks and generations of fishermen / farmers. A trip to the Vega archipelago offers an exciting insight into the traditions of egg and down collection. At Vega we visit the E-House, a museum and documentation centre devoted to eider ducks. The museum documents the tradition of keeping eider ducks as domestic animals. At the World Heritage Exhibition, the guide will tell you about Vega’s world heritage traditions and about life on Vega today. There is also a film and a beautiful photo slideshow from the archipelago. You can also experience the landscape of Holandsosen Nature Reserve, known for its calcareous bedrock, wetlands and rich birdlife. You can join a botanic hike to Guristraumen studying different orchids and other plants on the shoreline. In the same area you will find a cafe and a shop called “Lille Lånan” selling different products made of eiderdown.

Norwegian Aquaculture Centre The sea and fishing traditions have for thousands of years been the primary source of food and basis of survival for the people on the coast of Norway. The Norwegian Aquaculture Centre invites you to get an insight into modern aquaculture and fish farming, which is the second largest export industry in Norway. The Norwegian Aquaculture Centre also includes an exhibition that consists of aquariums – both freshwater and saltwater -, a section which highlights the fisheries in the olden days and a unit which present the fascinating geological history of the region. In the beautiful surroundings along the Toftsundet strait you visit a real fish farm and get a close up experience of the salmon fish farming process. And at the end of the tour you are of course welcome to taste the end product.

NARVIK

The region of contrast Welcome to Narvik - A peninsula surrounded by fjords and mountains. Narvik is so much more than just beautiful nature! It is the home of the Ofoten railway, the navvies, the famous bears Salt & Pepper and its unique war history. It was the first industrial town in Northern Norway and was given town status in 1902 as the construction of the Ofoten Railway was completed. A town centre was formed and its unique culture was, and still is, influenced by Swedish navvies, British engineers and sailors from across the world. Located 45 km from the Swedish border you can visit two countries in one day.

ATTRACTIONS/EXCURSIONS Polar Park The world’s northernmost wildlife park and one of Northern Norway’s most popular tourist attractions. With its 114 acres of natural habitat it houses Arctic animals such as wolves, brown bear, lynx, wolverine, moose, reindeer, musk oxen and fox. Enjoy a guided tour of the park. Why not try a different kind of visit? • Wolf Camp We give you the unique opportunity to meet the wolves at Polar Park inside the enclosure! Meet this mythical animal, and discover the actual truth about wolves. • Howl night (winter) Join us and get a unique and fantastic experience after closing time. It is dark, with crispy snow underfoot, and you are calling the wolves and they reply. This is the perfect setting for the Northern Lights to magically light up the sky.

PAGE 58

• Wolf Lodge How would you like to stay overnight in the Wolf Lodge at Polar Park. Built in the middle of a large wolf enclosure, this is a truly unique experience. The Ofoten Railway The Ofoten Railway extends for 42 km from Narvik to the Swedish border and winds its way through steep, rugged, mountainous terrain north of the Arctic Circle. The journey is a tourist attraction in itself. The line was once described as the 8th Wonder of the World and was the northernmost, coldest and harshest railway construction project the world had ever seen. Ofoten Railway & Navvy trek In a rich and wild nature setting the Navvy Trail winds its way down from the mountain to the fjord. The framework for this picturesque walk is nature itself with vibrant colours, brilliant light and unique sounds. The Navvy Trail has been branded a cultural Heritage trail.

Narvikfjellet – Cable Car Take the cable car to one of the most famous viewpoints in Northern Norway - the mountain restaurant 656 metres above sea level. Enjoy the spectacular view, the Midnight Sun or the Northern Lights. Several walking tours can be organised from here. Sled rides down the mountain in the winter. Climbing Park – fun for both children and adults. Ski slopes, children’s slopes, equipment hire. Aurora Hunting The Aurora Borealis, also called the Northern Lights, is only visible in the northern hemisphere in the period September to April. However, the best time is from October till February. We can offer several excursions where we go looking for this incredible phenomenon, hopefully leaving you with memories of a lifetime. War History & Memorial Museum Narvik’s dramatic history from World War II is told through pictures, displays and interactive animations

The landscape is striking in its variety: wildly beautiful places of marsh and rock, green fields and still lakes, dramatic mountains and white sand beaches by jade seas. Lofoten is dotted with picturesque villages and fish-drying racks, as stockfish – dried cod – has been the main export since the Middle Ages. The five main islands are linked by road and you can easily cross all five and return in a day. Passengers can also disembark at one port and rejoin the ship at another.

ATTRACTIONS/EXCURSIONS Magic Ice in Svolvær is the world’s first ice gallery and bar. Ice sculptures representing different aspects of Arctic life are dramatically lit and sound-tracked. The SKREI Experience Centre is a complete experience for the whole family, located in Storvågan, Kabelvåg.

Nyvågar Rorbuhotell has a restaurant, conference facilities and ample accommodation. Gallery Lofotens Hus is located in the charming fishing village of Henningsvær. As well as paintings by North Norwegian artists past and present, the

Dining is possible in the Clubhouse at the golf course.

Meet the Vikings! The biggest house in the world of the Vikings was found in Lofoten and reconstructed in full size, 83 m long. At Lofotr Viking Museum at Borg you can travel 1000 years back in time and see the Vikings demonstrating handcrafts, study arts and crafts. Row the Viking ship, try your hand at archery and other activities. Film and exhibition halls with unique artefacts. Viking style food and drinks.

VESTERÅLEN CRUISE PORT - SORTLAND Vesterålen is a group of islands in Northern Norway, just north of the Lofoten Islands. The Vesterålen islands are connected by bridges and are also linked with the mainland, making travel ferry-free. Vesterålen comprises five municipalities: Andøy, Sortland, Øksnes, Bø and Hadsel.

VESTERÅLEN

Kingdom of the whales The Northern Lights appear with the advent of the winter season. The breathtakingly beautiful colours of the Aurora Borealis shimmer across the sky and create a bewitching atmosphere. Steep snow-covered mountains are reflected on the ocean surface, along with the Arctic lightshow from above. In summer we have 24 hours of daylight and you can experience the awe-inspiring Midnight Sun. Vesterålen is also located at the edge of the continental shelf with nutrient rich Arctic waters, and it is the only place in Norway where there are whale safaris all year round. Some popular attractions in the region are Whale Safari, Inga-Sami-Siida, the Trollfjord, Nyksund, the Norwegian Fishing Industry Museum in Melbu and the Hurtigruten Museum.

ATTRACTIONS/ EXCURSIONS Bus Trip around scenic Eidsfjord Starting from the Blue City of Sortland we head south. We pass the characteristic bridge to the town of Stokmarknes and in the distance we may see the old Hurtigruten (Coastal Express) boat MS FINMARKEN in the dock. We follow the Vesterålen fjord rounding the south point of the Island Langøya. Soon we reach the Eidsfjord (The Herring Fjord). Your guide will tell you the fascinating story of the combined Fisherman and Farmer industry. We continue on and soon pass the Herring Oil Factory. Before our tour ends at the pier, we will enjoy a short sightseeing tour of Sortland. Bus Trip to Nyksund From Sortland we drive along the west coast of Langøya, first to Myre, one of the most important fishing villages in the north of Norway. From there it

PAGE 64

is just a short but very impressive trip to Nyksund, the abandoned fishing village which came to life again. A guided tour through Nyksund will give you an understanding of how people managed to live here up in the north on this little island, and why it has once again come to life. Inga Sami Siida is a Sami family that offers Sami traditions, culture, reindeer and nature experiences. Inside the wooden Lavvo, the Sami tent, you will learn about the Samis and their way of life while enjoying a hot drink. Hear fascinating stories about these indigenous people and you will also be treated to some joiking; the traditional Sami singing. During your stay at the Siida you can try your hand at throwing a lasso on reindeer antlers. The Hurtigruten Museum in Stokmarknes is the place where Richard With started his coastal steamer company which is today known as “Hurtigruten”.

We visit the museum where we see the history of the most renowned cruise company in Europe. We also visit the old Hurtigruten ship MS Finnmarken which lies in front of the museum. The Aquaculture Adventure Centre in Vesterålen Aquaculture Vesterålen offers an educational and unique insight into the production of salmon and Arctic char through a visit to a real fish farm. The experience centre showcases an interactive exhibition about the history of fish farming from the pioneer era until today. The Norwegian fishery culture and the more modern aquaculture are the bedrocks of life on the coast and one of Norway’s most important exports. As part of your visit we will take you on a boat trip to the farm facilities, and you get the opportunity to taste and buy smoked salmon and Arctic char. The centre is family friendly, with several activities aimed at children as well.

Andenes – 3 different trips: Whales, bird and seal safari, national tourist route and Spaceship Aurora The guide will present local history along the route from Sortland to Andenes. On the first tour we arrive at the Whale Centre for a guided tour around the exhibition, providing basic knowledge about the biology of the whales, their function in the eco-system and assertive research. We then board the safari vessel and go out to search for whales. Hot soup and coffee/tea will be served. After arrival at the port of Andenes the coach will take you back to the port of Sortland.

We will have several photo-stops on the way, including the white beach of Bleik. We visit the Spaceship Aurora Centre and operate a mission. In Andenes we have some local snacks, with time for a walk through Andenes before heading back to Sortland. Our last stop will be at a Soap Factory.
