Believe it or not, "the way north" (the historical meaning behind the name "Norway") isn't as cold as you would think. Despite being above the arctic circle and along the same latitude as Alaska and Siberia, Norway's climate is relatively tame, which makes it a fantastic, and underappreciated, cruise destination.
Known for breathtaking fjords and picturesque views, the Norwegian coast is nothing short of stunning. You'll experience unique wildlife and some of nature's most fascinating occurrences, like the summer's midnight sun. Plus, you might even see the Northern Lights on your voyage—a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for any outside traveler.
Several cruise line companies offer a variety of Norwegian voyages, from classic trips to the major coastal cities to specialty excursions in the High Arctic to Vikings-inspired and historically-influenced cruise routes. If you've been considering a trip to the Scandinavian area, this could be an excellent way to experience it.
