Beauty comes in many forms, and on this incredible northern voyage you’ll find all of them. Cruise pristine Norwegian fjords with snow-capped peaks and steep cliffs to either side, watching for mountain goats and picturesque farms as the hillsides glide past. Be lured ashore by fjord towns painted in pleasing spice colors that promise all kinds of rewards. Bergen, with its historic Bryggen wharf, a remnant of its Hanseatic League days. Molde, the City of Roses. Alesund, with its stunning Art Nouveau architecture. OldenLoen’s glaciers, waterfalls and ice-green lakes. Then discover the rough-hewn natural beauty of Scotland’s Northern Isles where the smell of peat smoke and sound of spinning wheels hint at a very different lifestyle. Explore Iron Age ruins and mysterious stone circles, shop for sturdy Orkney creepies (stools), and admire the orange-tinted cliffs and green moors of these remote archipelagos. Take your pick of Iceland’s wonders – powder-blue geothermal pools, massive waterfalls, and cozy bookstores crowded with friendly, eager readers. And enjoy it all surrounded by the luxurious comforts of your Windstar ship.
