Expedition Overview

If you have always wanted to explore the beautiful Norwegian coastline, its famous fjords and witness the legendary Northern Lights, the season of autumn presents the perfect opportunity to do so. With the summer crowds thinning, the coast is more tranquil, giving you gentler space and more time to appreciate the brilliant reds, yellows and orange dominating the mountainsides, hilltops and woods. With shorter days and longer nights, October sees a fresh snow fall and return of the Northern Lights.
