  • Norway and the Northern LightsOur last 24 hours on board was spent cruising southbound towards Bergen.

  • Norway and the Northern LightsAt about 3:00pm on Saturday we stopped for an hour at Vardo amidst some snow, which added to the ambiance. We just walked around the town for a few minutes, but some decided to take the plunge in the Posted by rpickett in Rusty Pickett, ECC | Jan 25, 2015
  • Norway and the Northern LightsToday we reached our most eastern part of the trip, and our turn-around point. Kirkenes.

  • Norway and the Northern LightsToday we stopped at our northern most point on the Northward voyage, the small town of Honningsvag at a latitude 70 degrees 58 minutes north.

  • Norway and the Northern LightsFor dinner last night we decided to visit their newly created specialty restaurant.

  • Norway and the Northern LightsOur first stop was Trondheim. There were several excursions available, but we are stopping on the way back and decided to do our excursion then.

  • Norway and the Northern LightsSo far the voyage has been everything I had hoped for and more. The ship is about one-half full, and sailing with only about 350 people is wonderful. We had a nice buffet dinner last night and tonight Posted by rpickett in Rusty Pickett, ECC | Jan 19, 2015
  • Norway and the Northern LightsFor my first adventure of 2015 I and two friends have traveled to Bergen Norway to board the MS Midnatsol of Hurtigruten Cruise Lines, to travel Norway's inside passage to North Cape and back in hopes of seeing the Posted by rpickett in Rusty Pickett, ECC | Jan 18, 2015
  • ReflectionsOur epic Nordic trip is over. I have frequently had moments where I can't believe where we are, that what we're seeing is really there live. It's like it's straight out of a movie or book (which is bent really, Posted by EricaJY in Welcome to Narnia | Jan 9, 2015
  • The frost is over! (exclaimed in Edmund's voice)We packed up and had our last breakfast at Scandic where I ate way too much. This buffet and the one at Shangri La Rasa Ria in Borneo are the best! We arrived back in Oslo around 1pm and caught Posted by EricaJY in Welcome to Narnia | Jan 8, 2015
  • Husky sledding in the wildernessAfter another scrumptious breakfast, we went to get a massage (yay!). Those who followed the Americas blog I did last year know we love massages (having 26 over the 10 week trip). We'd wanted to get a traditional Norweign massage, Posted by EricaJY in Welcome to Narnia | Jan 7, 2015
  • Playing speed chicken on a frozen lakeIt hadn't been the best night's sleep, what with the dogs periodic howl chorus, ting of the stove as burning wood readjusted, the guide Carmen coming in every four hours to add wood, Cal snoring and it being very cold. Posted by EricaJY in Welcome to Narnia | Jan 7, 2015
  • The most beautiful thing I have ever seenWe slept in today (yay!) and had a delicious breakfast again (love Scandic breakfast!). We slugged around until around 1pm then caught a bus to the Fjellheisen (cable car). It was freakin cold today at -9 degrees. At the Posted by EricaJY in Welcome to Narnia | Jan 7, 2015
  • First huntThe breakfast buffet at Scandic is awesome. I'm actually excited I have three more breakfasts here. Today is our first Northern Lights chase, leaving at 6.30pm. To prepare for this we need to make sure we are extremely rugged up, Posted by EricaJY in Welcome to Narnia | Jan 5, 2015
  • Art in Oslo - Some a Little DisturbingI did a fair amount of reading up on the sights to be seen in Oslo, apart from those which I would encounter as I just walked around more or less aimlessly. Two things stood out as being something I'd Posted by NZBarry in Barry Travels the World | Jan 2, 2015
  • Into the darknessGodt Nyttår! We started the new year like most, very tired. After quietly packing we caught the train to the airport to fly to Tromsø, self described "capital of the arctic" located 400kms above the arctic circle. This means the Posted by EricaJY in Welcome to Narnia | Jan 2, 2015
  • The dumbest thing I ever instantly agreed toSo just before we got on the plane to Norway, Ben had messaged us asking if we'd be interested in jumping in a fjord. Hell yeah! Ben immediately regretted this suggestion and today we finally executed. [img=http://photos.travellerspoint.com/574263/5B96 Posted by EricaJY in Welcome to Narnia | Dec 31, 2014
  • Let's get børstToday Ben, Cal and I headed to Holmenkollen, a ski jump, ski museum and popular lookout. The ski jump is huge (how the cheese do people do it?) and there's big steep steps up the stadium that apparently people run Posted by EricaJY in Welcome to Narnia | Dec 31, 2014
