In search of the Northern Lights guests may just discover much more than they are looking for: soaring mountain tops, skirted by pristine coastal waters, charming cities lined with architectural beauty, to curiously wander through, new found husky fur-friends playing in the winter wonderland. Or a wave hello and a smile, shared with the local folk as guests interweave with their everyday life.

When guests follow the lights, they follow the magic.

Alesund, a stunning contrast of coastal surrounds and its reknowned Art Nouveau architecture. Not only that, but this port town is also a gateway to the striking fjords, including UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord.
