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.
Roundtrip from Copenhagen on a 20-night voyage, you will be able to discover the Art Nouveau gem of Ålesund, historical Trondheim, cosmopolitan Kristiansand, and historic Bergen where a funicular ride up scenic Mount Floyen will take your breath away.
In Spitsbergen, 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.
Adding to the wonders you will witness are the gorgeous Hellelsylt Waterfall that plunges over the granite face of the fjord, cascading in thousands of feet of rainbows and foam, as well as the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Geirangerfjord.
