Copenhagen to Amsterdam
Pristine fjords, majestic old windmills, and cosmopolitan coastal cities are Northern European hallmarks throughout this 15-day voyage with stops in Denmark, Norway, Germany and the Netherlands via the small ship exclusive, Kiel Canal. Admire Viking artifacts and explore an ancient battlefield outside Stavanger. Kayak across calm waters to the Seven Sisters Waterfalls in Geirangerfjord. Float the River Spree past city parks and former Cold War icons before stopping at the German Reichtag for a 3-course lunch on a rooftop terrace overlooking Berlin. Explore medieval sculptures inside Lubeck’s St. Petri and St. Mary churches.  Cycle through green coastal countryside past polders, dikes, and classic windmills before feasting on fried salt cod, crispy fries, and locally crafted cheeses during an overnight stay in Amsterdam.

VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 1: Copenhagen
This historic city of palaces, canals, and copper spires casts a sense of enchantment upon all who walk its cobbled streets. Little wonder that Copenhagen’s favorite son, Hans Christian Andersen, was inspired to write some of the world’s most beloved fairy tales here. Stroll the 17th century Nyhavn waterfront where Andersen once lived, complete with colorful row houses and historic tall ships. Enjoy world-class shopping on Strøget, the world's longest pedestrian street. Or find your amusement at world-famous Tivoli Gardens where tree-lined pathways lead to theaters, open air stages, restaurants, cafes, and over 80 attractions.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 3: Stavanger
Here’s a day for exploration. Your ship will dock in the very city center near the oldest part of town. A short stroll will take you to Stavanger Cathedral, the best preserved medieval cathedral in Norway, the city center and cobblestone pedestrian streets. Just an hour’s boat trip away is the 2,000-foot-high Pulpit Rock with its magnificent views of the lovely Lysefjord.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 4: Gudvangen
With its dramatic and spectacular scenery, Gudvangen, an old Viking village with lots of character, has been a magnet for tourists for more than a century. Situated at the Naeroyfjord, which is an arm of the enormous Sognefjord (Norway’s longest and deepest fjord), and on the UNESCO World Heritage List, the scenery here is breathtaking and outdoor activities abound.
 
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 4: Sognefjord
Cruise up the longest and deepest fjord in Norway – and possibly the most beautiful. At its deepest the Sognefjord drops to more than 4,265 feet with the striking contrast of the mountains rising to more than 5,570 feet.  You will be able to enjoy the scenery long into the evening due to the late sunsets.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 5: Alesund
At the entrance to spectacular Geirangerfjord, Alesund has been voted the most beautiful town in Norway, and not only because of its location. The town burned to the ground in 1904 and was rebuilt in Art Nouveau style, with a few added elements from Nordic mythology – a longboat here, an image of Thor there.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 6: Geiranger
Visit tiny goat villages to sample homemade cheese. Take a RIB boat out on the spectacular Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Buy yourself a mango ice cream cone and absorb all the beauty around you.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 6: Geirangerfjord
Cruise up 9-mile-long Geirangerfjord, one of the most famous fjords of Norway.  This UNESCO site has several impressive waterfalls and your ship will cruise by the most famous waterfall of the fjord – the characteristic Seven Sisters Waterfall.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 7: Bergen
Colorful Bryggen, Bergen’s Hanseatic quay and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is so delightful you may find it difficult to explore further. But do. Watch the Huldras (forest nymphs) dance at Kjosfossen Waterfall, wander the narrow smau between the old buildings climbing the hillside.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 9: Copenhagen
This historic city of palaces, canals, and copper spires casts a sense of enchantment upon all who walk its cobbled streets. Little wonder that Copenhagen’s favorite son, Hans Christian Andersen, was inspired to write some of the world’s most beloved fairy tales here. Stroll the 17th century Nyhavn waterfront where Andersen once lived, complete with colorful row houses and historic tall ships. Enjoy world-class shopping on Strøget, the world's longest pedestrian street. Or find your amusement at world-famous Tivoli Gardens where tree-lined pathways lead to theaters, open air stages, restaurants, cafes, and over 80 attractions.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 10: Wismar
Walking into the heart of Old Wismar feels like stepping into Germany’s past. The medieval town was a major trading center of the Hanseatic League, an association that blessed it with endless gabled red brick buildings, Gothic churches, and a UNESCO designation. The buildings lining the Marktplatz give you a generous helping of this eye candy. Or spend the day in Berlin, where landmarks like the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag, and Checkpoint Charlie lead you through Germany’s past.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 11: Sassnitz, Germany
Well-known as a seaside resort, Sassnitz is also the gateway to Jasmund National Park with its unique chalk cliffs. Also found in Sassnitz is the decommissioned HMS Otus, a British submarine, now a floating museum. Here you will find many cafes and boutiques in this charming old town that invites relaxation.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 12: Travemünde (Lubeck)
This seaside resort has been called the German St. Tropez, and was where the beautiful people of the Belle Epoque retreated to restore their creative juices. You’ll find it restorative too, whether you choose to wander the medieval streets of Lubeck, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or try your hand at making marzipan.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 13: Kiel Canal
The busiest artificial waterway in the world, busier than the Panama Canal and the Suez Canal combined, this 61-mile-long canal saves a 250-mile detour.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 14: Harlingen
This historic harbor town has a long history of fishing and shipping, and is filled with old canals, well-preserved merchants’ houses, and 17th century warehouses. Wander through town to the 18th century City Hall and wait for the next hour or half hour when the carillon will chime its pretty melody, or enjoy a pleasurable scavenger hunt as you search for gable stones. These carved and often painted stone tablets were set into the walls of buildings in olden times to help people navigate the streets before the advent of house numbers. Many give you clues to the building’s former purpose.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 15: Amsterdam
Amsterdam, the Venice of the North, where more than 1,500 bridges arch gracefully over scenic canals. The stately 17th century homes of Dutch merchants line the canals and museums are everywhere, filled with masterpieces from the Dutch Golden Age. Most of the sightseeing essentials are conveniently collected in the Canal Ring, the central area of the city which is designated as a UNESCO site. Here you’ll find the Anne Frank House, the Royal Palace, the Red Light District, and most of the museums. Mind all the bicycles!
