There is no other country in the world that personifies the old adage “seeing is believing” more accurately than Norway. Not only will you witness magnificent fjords and glaciers, and immerse yourself in a sophisticated cultural life, but Norway is also the gateway to the top of the world. And there is no better way to journey to the northern most point cruise vessels may travel than in the lap of luxury.
Departing from Oslo on a 16-night voyage, you will be able to discover cosmopolitan Kristiansand and historic Bergen where a funicular ride up scenic Mount Floyen will take your breath away. In Spitsbergen (Longyearbyen), an active wildlife will surprise you at every turn. And after cruising the Magdalena Fjord, you will venture as far north as the Polar Ice Barrier, the nearly vertical seaward edge of the ice cap of the North Pole.
Above the Arctic Circle, you will visit picturesque Harstad and witness the gorgeous Hellesylt Waterfall that plunges over the granite face of the fjord, cascading in thousands of feet of rainbows and foam. All of this in addition to an unforgettable visit to UNESCO World Heritage Site Geirangerfjord, before arriving in the royal capital of Denmark, Copenhagen.
