Edinburgh to Copenhagen
If Northern Europe calls to you, then this voyage could be your answer, offering a full quiver of British Isles along with the captivating scenery of Norwegian fjords. You’ll be hard-pressed to decide whether it’s the “must sees” or the unexpected moments in between that are the most satisfying. Explore legendary castles and centuries of history in Belfast, Dublin, Edinburgh, and London. View the astonishing Book of Kells, painstakingly illustrated by 9th-century monks, and explore Nyhavn in Copenhagen, the colorful wharf where Hans Christian Andersen once penned his enduring fairytales. Take in the beauty of Norway’s fjords from all sides: cruising Geirangerfjord at sea level, climbing the 11 switchbacks of the Troll Road, and riding the scenic Flam Railroad, one of the most beautiful train journeys in the world. Then add on a slew of serendipitous discoveries. Alesund’s art nouveau streets, where turrets and spires hide an occasional homage to the Vikings. The unexpected scent of tropical flowers in an abbey garden off Cornwall. The special light in Skagen that merges sea and sky, inspiring artists by the dozens in the late 19th century. A cat garden at Belfast Castle, a secret dog cemetery at Edinburgh Castle, nymphs dancing in the spray of a Norwegian waterfall – each day is simply magical.
