Northern Europe
Overview
A cruise is one of the best ways to explore the stunning towns, cities and landscapes of the Scandinavian region.

From Stockholm, Gothenburg and Copenhagen through to Tallinn, Helsinki and St Petersburg, you can experience some of the liveliest and most beautiful cities, not only in the region, but in the world.


The area boasts dramatic scenery, fascinating cultures, history and archaeology. Very few cruises can offer the diversity of cultures and historic traditions that a cruise in this region can. Vikings, fjords, cliffs, glaciers, waterfalls, lakes, and churches, the region guarantees stunning landscapes and captivating cities.

Cruises in this region often sail from a UK port such as Dover or Harwich with a couple of sea days to relax before a busy itinerary. Another option is to fly and meet your ship in either Copenhagen or Amsterdam for a cruise that will run for around seven nights. Whichever option you choose, this kind of destination intensive itinerary is where taking a cruise really comes into its own. Having unpacked just once, your ship will glide between Europe's northern capitals without you having to lift a finger, other than to order another well-deserved post-sightseeing cocktail.

Cruises to this region are best taken in summer as the fjords tend to freeze over in winter.
Background

Ports

Reykjavik, Iceland
Reykjavik — the world's most northern capital — is Iceland's cultural hub. Sundahöfn is a modern harbour just minutes from the city centre that welcomes large ships from around the world, while smaller ships dock in the Old Harbour at the heart of town. Famous for its vibrant nightlife and vast array of cafes, bars and restaurants this diverse setting also boasts natural beauty in the unspoilt countryside.  Away from the bustling centre, discover a small piece of paradise at the Nauthólsvík geothermal beach. Golden sand meets a fusion of cold sea and hot geothermal water, which produces warmer temperatures perfect for swimming. Visit in winter and catch a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis - The Northern Lights.

Bergen, Norway

Visit Troldhaugen Museum to see Edvard Grieg's musical heritage comes to life, or explore the artwork on display at KODE. The 900-year old Bryggen, a wharf that features museums and pubs, guides you through the city's sea-faring past, while locally-caught seafood can be found at Bergen Fish Market. Discover family fun at Bergen Science Centre and Bergen Aquarium, or explore the city's sights on a Segway tour.
