The three new Norwegian itineraries for 2017, which range from 8-15 days in length, are:
Cruise the Norwegian Fjords – Tromsø to Bergen - Aimed at time-strapped guests, this eight-day expedition brings travelers to important places in Norway’s ancient history, UNESCO-protected historic sites, and areas of natural beauty.

Norwegian Fjords and Polar Bears of Spitsbergen - Travelers set sail from Bergen – the gateway to Norway's fjords – to the remote shores of Svalbard on this itinerary across the Norwegian Sea.

Normally priced from $5,999 pp, during the early booking period this itinerary is priced from from $5,099 for a 15-day trip from Bergen to Longyearbyen.
The G Expedition is a smaller ship with the capability to get in and out of ports that larger ships cannot. It was completely refurbished in 2009 and outfitted with new engines in 2015. The vessel can comfortably accommodate up to 134 passengers with common areas and private spaces for rest and retreat, plus observation decks that provide panoramic views.
With G Adventures-trained Chief Experience Officers on board (local guides) and a passenger-to-crew ratio of about 10 to 1, the G Expedition also hosts cabins that each have ocean-facing windows or portholes, along with private en-suite facilities, climate control, a shared library, a lounge, a pub, and a computer room with limited Internet connectivity.
