Around the previous turn of the millennium Norsemen – Vikings - set sail for western seas. They travelled to England, the Scottish isles in the north and discovered new countries in the North Atlantic, namely, the Faroes, Iceland and Greenland. They even reached the American continent, which they called Vinland, hundreds of years before the Queen of Spain sent Columbus out West to find India.
For many people travelling aboard the Norröna is also an exploration of the great exciting unknown. My hope is that your journey proves to be the eventful and educational experience you had expected. We will certainly do our bit to make sure that the leg of your journey you are spending aboard the Norröna becomes a lasting memory, one you would recommend to friends and acquaintances back home.
On the Norröna we emphasize our roots. We are therefore proud of everything the nations in the North Atlantic have to offer. You can also experience this at the Tax-Free Shop, where we have gone to great lengths to select the nest products from the Faroes, Iceland and Denmark, which directly echo our Viking heritage. Seize the moment. Explore our ship. Visit the sun deck and take in the view while land is still on the horizon – you might spot a whale on the journey – no matter what the weather is like, a journey in the Northern Seas is always a special experience. We look forward to welcoming you aboard the Norröna soon wish you a pleasant journey.
