Taber Holidays has introduced a new tour travelling by Hurtigruten as far as Tromsø, and continuing by plane to Longyearbyen, the world’s most northerly town on the remote Svalbard archipelago.

Prices for the ten-day itinerary lead in at £1,930 per person, and the journey begins in the city of Bergen and docks at some of Norway’s most picturesque towns and villages where guests can disembark and explore life by the coast.

Highlights include the Art Nouveau city of Ålesund, medieval city of Trondheim and the famously narrow Trollfjord. After four nights on Hurtigruten, guests will spend a night in Tromsø to visit some of its popular sights, and the journey then continues north, when guests board a plane to Longyearbyen for their final three nights.

Included is a sightseeing safari by boat across the Isfjord where guests can view some of Spitsbergen’s famed landscape including wildlife and glaciers. Prices for the coastal exploration start from £1,930 including flights; breakfast accommodation in Bergen, Tromsø and Longyearbyen; four nights on Hurtigruten; and the Isfjord excursion in Spitsbergen. It departs daily until September 30.
