Stockholm to Copenhagen
Discover Norwegian natural beauty, Scandinavian splendors and remote Baltic ports during this 18-day exploration of Northern Europe. Wander the cobbled pedestrian paths along aromatic cafés and captivating Estonian shops in Tallinn’s Old Town. Dine on rich, gravy-covered Swedish meatballs, or sample pickled herring paired with dill, garlic and mustard in a classic Smörgåsbord meal in Stockholm. Lean back and take in near-vertical views of sheer cliffs and tumbling veiled waterfalls throughout Norway’s Geirangerfjord and Sognefjord. Spend an enchanting evening among St. Petersburg’s sparkling city lights, and linger over Russian exhibits in the Hermitage Museum, one of the largest art collections in the world, during an overnight port stay.

The spires of 14th century churches soar above fashion-forward cafés, restaurants, and shops within the stone walls of Tallinn. Medieval Old Town is the well-preserved – and thriving – center of town, where you’ll find impressive guild houses, St. Olav’s Church, and other architectural treasures. Beyond Old Town lies Peter the Great’s Baroque masterpiece, Kadriorg Palace – and sunny Pirita beach.

Day 8: Klaipeda
Klaipeda is the only port in Lithuania, and they take great pride in its maritime history with tall ship regattas and a Sea Museum. You’ll notice that local legends and folklore play a big role here, from the playful statues scattered about Old Town to Witches' Hill with its wooden sculptures depicting Lithuanian fairy tales.  Nearby Curonian Spit National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, famed for possessing Europe’s highest sand dunes.

Day 9: Gdansk
Gdansk’s Old Town was lovingly reconstructed after World War II. Take your time admiring massive red-brick churches and searching for the perfect memento in amber shops. This is also the home of the Solidarity movement, the beautiful Lake District, and Malbork Castle, Europe’s largest gothic fortress.
VIEW THE JOURNEY

VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 11: 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 13: 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 14: 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 14: 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 15: 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 16: 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 17: 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 19: 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.
