Musical treat in the fjords

Home/Cruise Destinations, Cruise Entertainment/Musical treat in the fjords

Here’s an interesting package – I’m surprised it’s not been done before.
Hurtigruten, who operate the fleet of Norwegian Coastal Voyages ships, have put together a special cruise combining a winter exploration of the magnificent fjord landscapes and classical music concerts.
On January 4, MV Trollfjord will become a musical stage as she sails from Tromso to Oslo, with concerts on board, and culminating in a performance at Oslo’s newly-built opera house.
With luck, there will also be a light show, courtesy of the Aurora Borealis.
Tromso is inside the Arctic Circle, and its long winter nights are perfect for watching the Northern Lights. Heading south to the Lofoten islands, and on to Bergen, the ship will host performances by the Norwegian State Opera and one evening will, naturally enough, be devoted to the music of Edvard Grieg
Fares start at £1,230 per person – and there are no single supplements. The price includes return flights from Heathrow, and six nights full board accommodation on the ship, The adventurous can add a dog sledding expedition for £135.

    Not 100 percent about this, but you might want to check the “not been done before” part of this. I think it may have happened this January (going to Tromsø for their classical music festival), plus I’m pretty sure there have been other music-oriented voyages on the coastal ferry.
