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.

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.
Reykjavik, Iceland
Bergen, Norway
Bergen, Norway
The charming port city of Bergen is framed by seven hills on Norway's south-west shore. Bergen’s bustling waterfront and narrow streets of colourful half-timbered houses combine with a proud musical and maritime heritage. Ride the funicular railway up Mount Floyen for city views. 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.
Tromsø, Norway
Arrive in Tromsø - the 'Gateway to the Arctic'. Enjoy a thrilling husky sled ride through snow-covered landscapes from the Tromso Wilderness Centre or visit the iceberg-shaped Arctic Cathedral. Ride the cable car to the top of Mount Storsteinen for amazing views, admire the artworks at the Art Museum of Norway, or step back in time at Perspektivet Museum. Taste authentic local brews on a tour of Mack Brewery or get up close to local fish and bearded seals at Polaria Arctic Aquarium.
