Copenhagen, Denmark

Copenhagen, Denmark Embark: 23 July 2023

Copenhagen was founded during the 12th century. So much is new and striking, so much richly traditional - from the ramparts of Hamlet's Elsinore to the very latest examples of Scandinavian design. Copenhagen literally takes your breath away. Be wowed by the Amalienborg Palace, Christiana's hippy commune and the delightfully relaxing Tivoli Gardens.
Gothenburg

Gothenburg In Port: 24 July 2023

Sweden's second city is a pleasant whirl of parks and canals, and proud maritime traditions. The grand Maritime Museum celebrates this, and even its modern opera house resembles a classic ocean liner.
Djupivogur, Iceland

Djupivogur, Iceland In Port: 27 July 2023

Djúpivogur is a very small, quaint town of some 456 people, located in East Iceland in Berufjörður fjord. Towering, pyramid-shaped Mount Búlandstindur dominates the landscape, rising to 3,510’ (1,069 m). It is a place of unspoiled nature, with quiet lagoons and a tranquil harbour populated by colourful fishing boats. The area is well-known for the diversity of birdlife, especially in nearby Búlandsnes Bird Sanctuary where most of Iceland’s bird species can be observed.
Heimaey, Westman Islands

Heimaey, Westman Islands In Port: 28 July 2023

Heimaey Island is the largest in the Westman Islands located 6,5km off the south-west coast of Iceland. One of the most visually impressive islands in Iceland, it is ringed by tall, vertical sea cliffs many hundreds of feet high. Heimaey is also the home to over eight million Atlantic puffins, more nesting puffins than anywhere else on earth. A local story tells that puffin chicks, taking their first flights at night, often become stranded in the village streets, where the local children rescue them and set them free the next day. In 1973 the island received the nickname, ‘Pompeii of the North’ when a volcanic eruption and lava flow destroyed half the town. This caused a crisis when the town’s only harbour was nearly blocked by advancing lava. Nowadays it is a lively place with a vibrant culture and over four thousand residents.
grundarfjordur, Iceland

grundarfjordur, Iceland In Port: 29 July 2023

The charming small fishing village of Grundarfjörður is located in the middle of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula and thus provides easy access to Stykkishólmur, Snæfellsbær and the Snæfellsnes National Park. Its best-known landmark is undoubtedly the peak of Mt. Kirkjufell. Translated as ‘church mountain,’ Kirkjufell is the most easily recognizable peak, and one of the most photographed mountains in Iceland. During summer months a Viking Village is built in the centre of town where Viking re-enactments occur quite regularly. The surrounding sea is rich with birdlife & marine life throughout the year.
Reykjavik

Reykjavik In Port: 30 July 2023

A mass of brightly coloured corrugated iron roofs is a familiar sight here in the world's most northern capital city. Experience the incredible views of the Golden Waterfall and wonder at the spouting geysers. Join in a national pastime - shopping! Designer labels, local wool, gourmet treats, even a flea market, it's all right here.
Isafjordur, Iceland

Isafjordur, Iceland In Port: 31 July 2023

The Westfjords in northwest Iceland is a remote and sparsely populated peninsula of steep, tall mountains cut by dozens of fjords. The raw and untamed natural landscape around Ísafjörður is characterized by a subarctic environment. A colourful show of blooming tundra wildflowers carpets the mountain slopes and valleys during the short, cool summer. Keep your binoculars handy. Iceland's western fjords are prime whale watching waters and, if your luck's in, you may just spot a tell-tale spout of water.
Akureyri, Iceland

Akureyri, Iceland In Port: 1 August 2023

Established in the mid-17th century, Akureyri is home to Iceland's largest fishing company and its biggest shipyard. Viking sagas, spectacular fjords, snow-capped mountains... Iceland's Capital of the North is also surprisingly mild and the so-called Green Town is made for those long summer days.
Seydisfjordur, Iceland

Seydisfjordur, Iceland In Port: 2 August 2023

The remote town of Seydisfjördur is perched at the end of a narrow twisting fjord in East Iceland. A very picturesque village of 700 people, it is known for its thriving arts scene and large number of resident artists. Tourism is on the rise as well, as its natural setting of mountains and waterfalls is simply breath-taking. Surrounded by impressive 1,085m tall snow-capped mountains, Seydisfjördur is home to the Technical Museum of Iceland and hosts populations of both eider ducks and Atlantic puffins. It was settled by Norwegian fishermen in 1848 and quickly became an important trading centre between Iceland and Europe. It is known throughout Iceland for its colourful Norwegian-style wooden houses.
Skagen, Denmark

Skagen, Denmark In Port: 5 August 2023

Filled with red and yellow clapboard houses, Skagen occupies a large spit of sand at the most northerly reaches of Denmark. Many flock to Grenen, the scenic end point of the dunes where two beaches meet. The light in the area has long attracted artists, and the results of the area's inspiration can be seen in the Skagen Museum, and in local shops filled with pottery and glassware.
Copenhagen, Denmark

Copenhagen, Denmark Disembark: 6 August 2023

Copenhagen was founded during the 12th century. So much is new and striking, so much richly traditional - from the ramparts of Hamlet's Elsinore to the very latest examples of Scandinavian design. Copenhagen literally takes your breath away. Be wowed by the Amalienborg Palace, Christiana's hippy commune and the delightfully relaxing Tivoli Gardens.
