Jun 15, Sunday
Heimaey, Iceland » 8 am 5 pm
This island made international headlines in 1973 when a volcanic eruption destroyed most of the town. Fortunately, a fishing fleet was able to transport everyone on the island to safety. Since then, the town has been rebuilt, and it remains one of Iceland’s major fishing ports. It has also gained a reputation as a golfing paradise, with 62 courses on the island, including one par 70 championship course set inside a volcanic crater.

While it is home to only around 4,500 people, Heimaey does welcome 8 million visitors to its shores every summer – in the form of puffins. Indeed, seeing the soaring cliffs of the island completely covered in puffins will take your breath away.

Jun 17, Tuesday
Tórshavn/Faroe Islands, Denmark » 8 am 1 pm
With roots firmly grounded in Viking language and tradition, the 18 islands that form the Faroes are steeped in history, graced with windswept wilderness and occupied by people with a hearty passion for survival. With 17,000 citizens, Tórshavn, which means "The Harbor of the god Thor," is the smallest capital in the world and is said to be the oldest capital in Scandinavia. The colorful houses and tiny fishing boats decorate a harbor that is charming and inviting.
Jun 18, Wednesday
Ålesund, Norway » 12 noon 11 pm

Charmingly eccentric-that is how the Norwegian town of Alesund is often described. What makes Alesund so unusual is its architecture. The town center boasts a somewhat outrageous collection of pastel-colored buildings, many with towers and turrets. Not so unusual, perhaps, except for the fanciful flourishes of human faces, pharaohs and dragons that peer down upon fascinated passersby.

The story of how these strange and altogether delightful buildings came to be is as remarkable as the structures themselves. In 1904, a fire consumed the town center and left 10,000 people without homes. Undaunted, the citizens saw an opportunity to re-imagine their city. Local architects, trained in Germany, helped rebuild the town in a surge of reconstruction lasting three years. The influence is certainly that of the Jugendstil movement. The style most closely resembles Art Nouveau. The result: uncommonly wonderful.

Jun 19, Thursday
Hellesylt/Geiranger, Norway » 8 am 5 pm

Geiranger village is located along the picturesque snow-covered Geirangerfjord in central Norway. One of the most dazzling of all Norwegian fjords, the Geiranger has been visited by touring ships for more than 100 years.

Impressive mountains, numerous waterfalls and farms clinging precipitously to steep hillsides combine to give this area its unique character.

One of the highlights of the fjordland, tiny Hellesylt lies at the head of Sunnylvenfjord. Near the village, a glacier-fed stream plunges over the sheer granite face of the fjord, cascading in thousands of feet of rainbows and foam. This majestic area, with its breathtaking glaciers and mountain lakes, inspired Henrik Ibsen's immortal drama Brand.

Jun 20, Friday
Bergen, Norway » 8 am 5 pm
Bergen, "Capital of the Fjordland" and Norway's second-largest city, was founded in 1070 AD. In its heyday, Norwegian Kings resided here. It was the largest city in Norway and there were no less than 27 churches and abbeys.

Bergen is an immaculate city, set between the mountains and the sea, where traditional values hold firm over transitory ways. The local people take great pride in the rich heritage of this, one of Norway's premier cities.

Jun 21, Saturday
Kristiansand, Norway » 9 am 6 pm
Set on the scenic southern tip of Norway, at a magical spot with more sunshine than anywhere else in Scandanavia, little Kristiansand is Nature’s playground. Its spacius, ice-free harbor is ringed with thousands of tiny islands, a haven for swimmers, boaters and sport fishermen. Along the waterfront, in the silent Christiansholm fortress, and the charming houses of the historic center, you’ll find a peaceful serenity.
Jun 22, Sunday
Oslo, Norway » 8 am 5 pm
At the head of the Oslofjord, which boasts many densely wooded islands, lies the impressive Norwegian capital of Oslo. This inspiring city is the site of many of Norway's finest historic and cultural achievements. Towering above our dock near the city center is the imposing Akershus Fortress and Castle. Graceful Viking ships, the Munch Art Museum and Gustav Vigeland's awesome sculpture collection are among the rich treasury of attractions this city has to offer.
Jun 23, Monday
Helsingborg, Sweden » 9 am 4 pm
Known as "the Pearl of the Sound" for its ideal location on Oresund Sound, Helsingborg guards the shipping lanes of the Baltic and the roadways between Scandinavia and continental Europe. It grew to prominence during the Middle Ages, as the imposing Kärnan fortress and Gothic Maria Church will attest. More recent attractions include the Vikingsberg Gallery and an open-air art museum.
Jun 23, Monday
