Date Port Arrival Departure
Jul 13, Saturday
Tromsø, Norway » 8 am 5 pm
Tromso, the capital of Troms province is known as "the capital of the Arctic." It lies on a forest-covered island in a narrow waterway, hemmed in by steep mountains and connected to the mainland by a bridge. This city has long been renowned as an important center of science and exploration. The imaginative Arctic Cathedral, the Polaria Centre and a scenic cable car ride are among the varied attractions Tromso offers to its visitors.
Jul 14, Sunday
Leknes/Lofoten, Norway » 8 am 1 pm
Because Leknes is not a fishing outpost like its neighboring towns, the city might, at first, seem to lack the same old-fashioned charm. But what it does possess is some of the most spectacular scenery in Norway, and perhaps the world. The surrounding mountains and cliffs are awe-inspiring and the perfect setting for hiking, climbing or cycling. A popular attraction is the old schoolhouse in the Fygle neighborhood, which gives visitors a taste of the area’s history and culture. Local shops offer an array of unique goods and souvenirs that capture the spirit of this beautiful port.
Jul 15, Monday
Ålesund, Norway » 11 am 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.

Jul 16, Tuesday
Loen/Olden, Norway » 8 am 6 pm
  • Olden and the surrounding area is an artful juxtaposition of charm and natural majesty. From a historic 18th-century church and a variety of small shops and cafes in Olden, to the south lies Briksdalsbreen, an amazingly blue glacier whose impressive beauty is fair reward for a hike along a picturesque winding path affording glimpses of picture-postcard vignettes of waterfalls, rivers and mountains. Upon arrival, you’ll also discover the village of Loen, surrounded by grand mountains and enchanting blue-green waters, that serves as the gateway to the magnificent Jostedal Glacier National Park, a magical place of forested slopes and glittering lakes and home to the largest glacier in Northern Europe, Jostedalsbreen.

 

Jul 17, Wednesday
Bergen, Norway » 8 am 6 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.

Jul 19, Friday
Stockholm, Sweden (overnight) » 7 pm  
Sweden's capital, Stockholm, which sprawls over 14 islands, is often called the "Beauty on Water." Resting amid wooded hills, it is a city surrounded by water, firmly linked by over 50 bridges.
