From Trondheim to Longyearbyen and vice versa: travel to the Polar Circle with Pullmantur

In the northernmost limits of Europe one finds a region of the world that is as attractive as it is unusual: the Arctic Circle. Of all the countries that are a part of it, the Pullmantur Journey to the Polar Circle singles out Norway and Russia on this 15-day and 14-night journey through the Norwegian Sea, the Barents Sea and the Arctic Ocean.

This Pullmantur cruise starts and ends in Trondheim, the third most populous city in Norway, where you can see some of Scandinavia's most important monuments, amongst them the Resistance Museum or the Stiftsgarden, a wooden palace that also serves as the official residence of the Norwegian monarchs when they travel to Trondheim. In addition to this city, this cruise takes you across most of the western coast of Norway, to its most important islands, and to the Scandinavian region of Russia.

Over the course of more than two weeks we'll visit the Norwegian ports of Leknes, Honningsvåg, Lakselv, Longyearbyen, Alta, Tromso, Narvik and the Russian port of Murmansk. Thus, this itinerary allows you to see sites including the Krigsminnemuseum, the Alyosha Monument and some of Europe's most magnificent landscapes, including Forlandet National Park.

It crosses the coast of the Scandinavian peninsula, which is also part of Russia

Trondheim, the first port of the Pullmantur Journey to the Polar Circle, is the southernmost enclave of all of our travel destinations. Founded in 997 AD, Trondheim was the capital of Norway until 1217, and here you can discover monuments including Nidaros Cathedral, a masterpiece of Norwegian Gothic architecture, the Archbishop's Palace and the Military Museum.

Later, we'll cross into the Arctic Circle and arrive in Leknes. Located on Vestvågøya, the second largest island in the Lofoten archipelago, Leknes is a privileged spot that is ideal for observing beautiful Norwegian landscapes, amongst them Lake Mellomvatnet, the Troll Fjord or the wooden church in Flakstad. After Leknes we head to Murmansk, one of the most surprising Russian cities, where you have to check out the Train Station and Lenin's Icebreaker.

"Communist architecture shines in Murmansk"
On the Norwegian island of Magerøya we'll arrive at Honningsvåg, the northernmost city in Europe. Here nearby Cape North is well-worth the visit, as it is the northern equivalent of Finisterre. A little further south, at the end of Porsangen fjord, one finds Lakselv, which is very close to Karasjoke, the capital of Norwegian Lapland.

Travel to Longyearbyen, the northernmost destination of this Pullmantur cruise

Spitsbergen in Longyearbyen, and island that is part of the Svalbard archipelago and has been a part of Norway since 1920. It boasts outstanding natural sites including the Forlandet National Park on Prince Charles Fordant Island, and the Austfonna and Vestfonna glaciers on Nordaustlandet. With regards to tourism in Longyearbyen, the nearby Penckbreen or Esmark glaciers are well-worth the visit.

Once again in mainland Norway, this Pullmantur cruise takes you to Alta, a small town on the banks of the river of the same name, where one also finds the Alta Fjord. This natural wonder is one of Norway's iconic monuments and is an official World Heritage Site due to the rock carvings found in its rocks. In addition to the fjord, when traveling to Alta make sure to visit of the Cathedral of the Northern Lights, one of the most exceptional examples of contemporary architecture in Norway.

"Longyearbyen, the most populated municipality in the North Pole"
In Tromsø, also called the Arctic Gate, you can see stunning Norwegian fjords, including Ullsfjorden and Ramfjord, as well as such striking monuments as the Arctic Cathedral or the Tromsø Arctic-Alpine Botanical Garden.
