Immerse yourself in the beautiful scenes and natural wonders of wintertime Norway – at a time of year with fewer tourists around – and experience magical Christmas and New Year celebrations on board your smaller ship and during time ashore, for a festive adventure you will remember forever. Visit the stylish city of Stavanger, perfect for picking-up last minute gifts for your friends and loved ones accompanying you on your journey, before enjoying a memorable Christmas at sea. As Bolette sails on towards Arctic Norway, you’ll enjoy a day of traditional food, fun and festivity, all while friendly, attentive staff take care of everything for you. Boxing Day will be very special, calling at Alta – one of the best places to see the extraordinary Northern Lights – for an overnight stay. With luck on your side, you may get to witness Mother Nature’s multi-coloured light display dancing across the night sky. You could tour to the Sorrisniva Ice Hotel too, not just to marvel at its hand-crafted structures and sculptures, but also get ‘hands on’ and create your own Arctic art. To see the year out in style, there’s an unmissable opportunity to uncover the delights of one of Northern Norway’s most unique destinations. In the beautiful Vesterålen archipelago, miles of rugged coastline, unspoilt countryside and the ‘Blue Town’ of Sortland – almost entirely painted in various blue hues thanks to artist Bjorn Elvenes – await your discovery and exploration. There’s also a visit to picturesque Narvik, overlooked by the magnificent, snow-capped peak of Narvikfjellet Mountain and surrounded by Arctic landscapes best seen from the town’s cable car, before your New Year’s Eve celebrations begin in Bergen. Perhaps join local revellers in the city centre in the evening and feel the excitement as the arrival of 2022 nears; then head back on board to watch a spectacular fireworks display as the clock strikes midnight – an incredible way to start the New Year.
