Travel Challenge: A summer cruise in Scandinavia
Friday 06 April 2012
Each week we invite three companies to offer their best deal for a specific holiday. Today: a June cruise in Scandinavia. Prices per person, based on two sharing, with all meals.
£2,574: "Classic Norwegian Discovery"
A 10-night cruise in an inside cabin stopping at a number of Norwegian ports en route to Kirkenes, and returning to Trondheim. Includes SAS flights from Heathrow to Bergen on 8 June, returning from Trondheim. "June is a fantastic month for exploring the Norwegian coast, under the beautiful midnight sun," says Kathryn Beadle of Hurtigruten (0844 448 7601; hurtigruten.co.uk).
£3,119: "Norwegian Fjords Sojourn"
A nine-night cruise in an ocean view cabin, with calls at Stavanger, Bergen, Alesund, Oslo, Gothenburg and Copenhagen. Includes BA flights from Heathrow to Hamburg on 5 June, returning from Copenhagen. "This is the ultimate way to visit the Norwegian fjords in five-star style. The boat carries just 450 guests and combines thrilling cities such as Oslo, with unusual ports such as Olden," says Lynn Narraway of Seabourn (0845 070 0500; seabourn.com).
£1,499: "Arctic Circle Cruise"
Starting and ending in Amsterdam, a 12-night cruise in a balcony stateroom with calls in the Lofoten Islands, the Spitsbergen archipelago and Bergen.

As well as the amazing scenery, once you cross into the Arctic Circle it will be perpetual daylight," says Sean Atton of Trailfinders (020-7368 1300; trailfinders.com).
