Default Kuki says go into the lights !

ok well he didn't say that exactly! But, in his report from the Miami convention he touched on what we see as a very interesting cruise....

" How does a cruise to chase the Aurora Borealis sound, through the Norwegian Fjords and on to the Arctic?"

Look for his reporting back on this one on his return.

He is speaking about the voyages offered by Norway based Hurtigruten Line. Hurtigruten - cruise the magnificent fjords of Norway - hurtigruten.com
and it seems this sailing Hunting the Light - more than Aurora Borealis - hurtigruten.com

Has anyone on CM done this voyage?

Perhaps we can get a CM group together for this???

I have heard very good things about Hurtigruten, but the Aurota Beaurialis (sp?) generally does not occur in Summer as far as I know, so be prepared for a very cold cruise.

Thanks Paul. Yes their website indicates the winter sailing and the temps associated with the area.

We grew up in the north so cold is not new to us. Alaska in September was chilly. Norway in winter is cold.

Aside form a interior land package in a lodge up in northern Alaska loaded with Japanese tourists, this cruise would be the way to go.

Isn't this the area and time of year that's popular with the Japanese for ummm, making babies? I think I remember something about this from a long time ago?

I went to the site and can't find any prices . Is this an "if you have to ask..." type cruise?

I'd much rather be too cool than too hot!

You have to go thru the order process and pick a sail date, 6-7 day North or south or 12 day round trip.
