Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Rotterdam Often called the gateway to Europe, the port city of Rotterdam is full of old-world charm. The harbor offers amazing views and a maze of wharves and canals, along with towering spires make for a beautiful sight. Take a stroll and duck into one of the pubs or eateries along the way. Only three pre World War II buildings in the city centre have survived and are worth a look - city hall, St. Laurence church and the White House. Explore the Museum Boymans van Beuningen, which houses a unique collection dating from the 14th century, or the Museum Voor Volkenkunde - home to ethnological exhibits. Exquisite architecture can be seen in many areas of Rotterdam, most notably in the Delfshaven quarter of the city - where 18th century houses are on display. For a laugh, check out Kijk-Kubus, an upside-down house.
  • Day 2 - At Sea
  • Day 3 - Stavanger Stroll cobbled lanes in the Old Quarter, restored thanks to North Sea oil money. Feeling fearless? Cruise Lysefjord to sail under Prekestolen (Pulpit Rock), a huge cube that looms 1500 feet above your boat.
  • Day 4 - Flam Flåm's villages and farms perch on steep slopes above gleaming waterways. Sample shore excursion: The Flam Railway.
  • Day 4 - Scenic Cruising Sognefjord
  • Day 5 - Alesund Ålesund, a quaint fishing town of approximately 45,000 in western Norway, has been called Norway’s most beautiful city. A fire in 1904 destroyed much of it, resulting in the town being rebuilt in the Art Nouveau style—also known as Jugendstil—that was popular around the turn of the 20th century. A year after the fire, Norway gained its independence from Sweden, which led to a campaign to build a "Norwegian town" to mark the creation of the new nation. The colorful buildings feature castlelike turrets and spires with intricate facades of ornamental flowers, gargoyles and Viking-inspired decorations. Bordering the Norwegian Sea, this area is also famous for its mountain ranges and fjords. For those looking for a more active visit, Ålesund offers great hiking, mountain biking and kayaking. One of the highlights is climbing the 418 steps that lead up Mount Aksla for a spectacular view of the city and the Sunnmøre Alps. Nearby is the Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its beautiful waterfalls. This is also home to Atlanterhavsparken, or the Atlantic Sea Park, one of the largest aquariums in Europe.
  • Day 6 - Trondheim Founded in AD 997 as a Viking seat of power, Trondheim (then Nidaros ) holds the Nidaros Cathedral, where all Norwegian coronations take place and the crown jewels are kept. Sample shore excursion: Trondheim City Sightseeing.
  • Day 6 - Scenic Cruising Trondheimfjord
  • Day 7 - At Sea
  • Day 8 - Hammerfest The town of Hammerfest offers a good selection of outdoor activities, including sport fishing, scuba diving, hiking, and boating. Explore the town and marvel at the area's long and proud history (it's been an important fishing and Arctic hunting settlement since the Stone Age).
  • Day 9 - Honningsvag Here in the Land of the Midnight Sun is the northernmost town in Europe. Tour the tundra where free-roaming reindeer snack on scrubby vegetation and drop a line home with the unusual Nordkapp postmark.
  • Day 9 - Scenic cruising North Cape
  • Day 10 - At Sea
  • Day 11 - At Sea
  • Day 12 - Geiranger Geiranger is a picturesque fjord town nestled in a crook of winding, namesake Geirangerfjord. Nearby, the Seven Sisters Waterfall takes a 5,000-foot plunge.
  • Day 12 - Cruising Geirangerfjord
  • Day 13 - Bergen Beautiful Bergen, Norway’s second-largest city, is one of the most popular ports of call on a cruise up the fjords. Step off the ship into the medieval Bryggen wharf area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979, where small boats line the harbor and wooden gabled buildings stand proud along the waterfront. Bergen’s rich maritime tradition goes back nearly 1,000 years, including the years the town played an important part in the Hanseatic League, the trading empire that dominated maritime commerce in the region between the 14th and 18th centuries. The city is one of Europe’s oldest settlements, and its cobblestone streets and narrow alleyways lead to emerald-green parks, medieval cathedrals and stone fortresses that kept enemies at bay centuries ago. It's also eminently walkable, with historic buildings and excellent markets selling everything from fish and produce to trinkets and souvenirs. Surrounded by mountains and thick forest, and sitting halfway between Geiranger to the north and Stavanger to the south, Bergen offers plenty to do outside the city too. Whether you sign up for a guided excursion or venture out on your own, you’ll be sure to fall in love with Bergen.
  • Day 14 - At Sea
