A Christmas special episode of Cruising with Jane McDonald will feature a festive Norwegian voyage by Hurtigruten.

The Christmas Eve programme on Channel 5 will show the presenter join a seven-day itinerary from Bergen to Kirkenes on board MS Polarlys.

McDonald will be seen experiencing excursions such as snowmobiling and catching king crabs.

APT and Oceania have both featured on the latest series.

The expedition line’s UK and Ireland general manager Anthony Daniels said: “We are incredibly excited to appear on Cruising with Jane McDonald – especially in this highly sought-after festive episode.

“Winter is a great season to explore the coast of Norway with stunning snow-capped mountains; towns and villages along the coast getting into the festive spirit; and of course, the opportunity to chase the mesmerising Northern Lights.

“The informal authenticity of Norway presented by Hurtigruten comes through, and we are sure this episode will encourage existing and new guests to find their inner explorer and join Hurtigruten for their next adventure, winter or summer.”
