During February of 2007, our President, Jerry and his wife, Laurie had the opportunity to view the mid-winter Aurora Borealis, Northern Lights on the Norwegian Coastal Voyage now called, Hurtigruten, its original Norwegian name. Many of our recommended travel programs come from our own staff’s travel experiences and this definitely tops the list. The food and service were impressive on the MS Trollfjord millennium ship stopping at the many small fishing villages to load and unload cargo along the Western Norwegian Coast northbound from Bergen to Kirkenes, on the Russian border. Book end Historic Bergen up front and historic Oslo at the end to get a delightful prospective of how the Norwegians truly enjoy their winters.

Undoubtedly the highlight of our trip was the Northern Lights viewed from the top deck off the coasts of Alta and Hammerfest sailing high above the Arctic Circle. The display was holistic in nature and very moving! If you are looking for a one of kind experience – this is it!
