Emma’s Island Princess Arctic Circle Cruise Andalsnes Norway

Island Princess – Arctic Circle Cruise -Andalsnes Norway

Emma recently cruised to the Arctic Circle aboard Princess Cruises’ Island Princess. She had such an incredible experience that we are sharing her daily diary with you, so that you can see just what an amazing time she had!

Day 4. Island Princess – Andalsnes 🇳🇴 

We had a Spectacular sail into the fjord with all the reflection shots I could wish for! Its 21° and sunny!! 

As we got off the ship we decided to have a quick visit to church first, an old railway carriage by the port, converted into a cute little church! 

We had a tour booked with Viator, for the Troll Road and Troll wall.

The tour began with a nerve wracking assent up the mountain on the famous Troll Road, spanning 5km with 11 hairpin bends, each corner with its own name. Reaching the top the were snow capped mountains and the most incredible views through the valley below and stunning waterfalls. 

We continued our tour with a drive back down and a quick stop at the base of the waterfall for photos before a  visit to see the Trolls at Trollveggen. Onward to the Troll Wall, the highest sheer drop in Northern Europe. Base jumpers paradise, though if caught the fine is €3000! A memorial to those jumpers that didn’t make it stands at the bottom. 

The Romsdalsgondolen aerial lift

is close to the port so when we got back to the town centre we made a quick dash to the Romsdalsgondolen base station for a trip in a gondola to the best view point over the town. We chose a €54 return though you could opt to walk it one way up or down. Once at the top, 400m you could hike a further 350m for an even better view! 

Bayou cafe tonight!

Back to the ship for a speedy change for dinner as we had a specialty reservation at the Speciality Restaurant – Bayou Cafe. we found Southern style cuisine, gumbo ya-ya’s jambalaya, butter melted lobster and dirty rice on the menu! I enjoyed Cajun easy peel shrimp, Carpetbaggers trinity smothered beef filet and a peanut butter slice cake for pudding!


Finished the evening with a vocal performance from Nate Simpson (x-factor contestant) very good show! 

Finally late night drinks with Mandy & Martin to catch up on a super day 🇳🇴
