Your shore experience on MS Trollfjord
With new ports and exclusive excursions, The Svalbard Express and The North Cape Express completely immerse you in some of Norway’s most magical places.
A blend of new and historic ports
We’re excited to show you ports that are brand new to our ships, call in on old friends we haven’t seen for many years, and warmly introduce you to some of our enduring favourite places.
And with an average of 6 hours in port, there’s plenty of time to get to know each destination.
With an average of three excursions in each port, there’s something for you no matter how active you’re feeling that day. When The North Cape Express calls at Molde, you can join a bus tour along the Atlantic Road. In Norway, Viking history is everywhere so from Haugesund you can travel back to the time ruled by these seafaring warriors on e-bike, bus or RIB. On The Svalbard Express, come face-to-face with Viking history on a medieval homestead visit in Tromsø. Svalbard excursions include dog sledding on wheels or meeting the huskies. There are plenty of opportunities to try fishing in Norway, too.
Compelling onshore activities
Each voyage sails with a four-strong (plus an enthusiastic trainee) Coastal Experience Team. As well as onboard activities, these experienced leaders, including two dedicated nature and culture guides, run a full programme of onshore activities.
In many cases, the same team members sharing their spellbinding stories on board will be the same people taking you hiking, snowshoeing, beach cleaning or on photography walks on shore. At other times, local guides and experts will lead the way, giving you a unique insight into their worlds.
We also travel with a stock of outdoors equipment, such as fishing gear, snowshoes and traditional skis, for use on activities led by the Coastal Experience Team. Members of the team can show you how to use the equipment if you’re not sure. And if you’d rather explore by yourself, don’t forget to ask the Team for their recommendations on the best things to do in Svalbard and all along the Norwegian coast.
