Trek past low, wind-shorn coastal vegetation punctuated by cairns of stacked rocks and lichen-covered Neolithic monoliths. Caress the glossy corners of wooden church pews polished smooth by generations of prayerful hands from Norwegian villagers both past and present. This 10-day cruise combines the cultural intimacy exclusive to small port excursions with the rugged beauty of the fjords and glaciers of Norway. It’s a journey of contrasts where futuristic innovations intermingle with artifacts and monuments from an ancient past. Stroll among countless tartans, kilts and scarves for sale along Edinburgh’s cobblestoned Royal Mile. Savor lesser-known Scottish haddock dishes like sauce-covered Finnan haddie or salty, hardwood-smoked Arbroath smokies. Ride in Olden’s open ‘Troll Cars’ to the melting Briksdal Glacier, the most accessible arm of the Jostedal—the largest glacier in Europe. Take flight in a helicopter to the sweeping heights of Norway’s popular Pulpit Rock and the steep, granite-lined cliffs of Lysefjord. Explore Skagen’s “blue hour” a summer light favored by Scandinavian Realist and Impressionist artists more than a century ago. Take a ride among old world amusements in Copenhagen’s Tivoli Garden or catch an impromptu concert amid Christiania’s eclectic and contemporary counterculture crowd. This delicious and insightful journey delivers memorable experiences far beyond ordinary.
