Day 1 - Edinburgh, UK

Arrive: Tue 01 August 2023 / Depart: Tue 01 August 2023 at 20:00

If ever there were a town made for walking, it would be Scotland's capital. Renowned as one of Europe?s most attractive cities, Edinburgh's Old Town and New Town are a Marvelous mixture of elegant streets, charming squares and quaint alleyways. Of course, the city?s most distinctive landmark is Edinburgh Castle, set high up on a craggy cliff in the center of the city. A must-see.

Day 2 - At Sea

Day 3 - Stavanger, Norway

Arrive: Thu 03 August 2023 at 08:00 / Depart: Thu 03 August 2023 at 20:00

Stavanger is a fascinating blend of old and new – from the Middle Ages when Vikings ruled the seas to today’s North Sea drilling platforms that have made Norway one of the world’s leading oil producers. Echoing this duality is the contrast of modern architecture and trendy, stylish cafés with ancient cobblestone walkways, and rows of 18th-century whitewashed wooden houses. As you wander around town, keep your eyes open for the 23 identical cast iron figures by sculptor Antony Gormley that are scattered about. They are six feet tall and all face 10° west.

Day 4 - Haugesund

Arrive: Fri 04 August 2023 at 08:00 / Depart: Fri 04 August 2023 at 14:00

The lovely port town of Haugesund is known as the birthplace of Norway, crowned as such by Viking King Harald Fairhair in the 9th century. Today it’s one of Norway’s principal culture centers, hosting the Norwegian International Film Festival as well as a jazz festival every summer. The fascinating Viking past of Haugesund comes alive at the Norwegian History Center where re-creations take place on a 7th century Viking farm. And the descendants of renowned Viking ship builders recently completed an exact sailing replica of a dragon ship. If it’s in town, go aboard. Life on the farm was hard; on the sea, unimaginable - no wonder Vikings were so fierce.

Day 5 - Olden

Arrive: Sat 05 August 2023 at 08:00 / Depart: Sat 05 August 2023 at 20:00

The village of Olden sits peacefully at the edge of the colossal Jostedal Glacier. This is Europe's largest ice floe, covering 188 square miles, and 2000 feet at its thickest. But it’s not the only glacier in this park. If you are feeling energetic, consider a journey to the frozen cascade of the million-year-old Briksdal Glacier, hiking the last portion across a wooden bridge over a waterfall, through a bewitching mountain valley, right up to the glacier’s face. Alternatively, opt for a relaxing journey by boat on an emerald green lake framed by ancient mountains.

Day 6 - Alesund

Arrive: Sun 06 August 2023 at 08:00 / Depart: Sun 06 August 2023 at 22:00

Alesund's architecture is known far and wide. Turrets, spires, and other whimsical Art Nouveau architectural touches give the town its distinctive character like something from a fairytale. The scenic spectacle of the Geirangerfjord, one of Norway's best-known attractions, is just a stone's throw from this quaint little town.

Day 7 - At Sea

Day 8 - Svolvaer

Arrive: Tue 08 August 2023 at 07:00 / Depart: Tue 08 August 2023 at 17:00

The scenery of the Lofoten archipelago is among the most dramatic in Norway, its spectacular glacial rock formations always visible, looming large behind beaches and green fields. Here, 200 km (124 miles) north of the Arctic Circle, the landscape is wild and life is simple, the coast ringed with fishing hamlets and picturesque cabins on stilts that have attracted artists for centuries. Birdlife is abundant, with large colonies of co-habiting species nesting on towering cliffs. Six miles offshore the continental shelf drops away to depths of 3,000 feet, and massive sperm whales can be spotted feeding in the deep, nutrient-rich waters.

Day 8 - Trollfjord

Arrive: Tue 08 August 2023 at 18:30 / Depart: Tue 08 August 2023 at 19:00

Sometimes the biggest adventures come in small voyages. A narrow two-kilometer strip of the Raftsundet Strait just 3,724 feet wide, Trollfjord is a breathtaking passage through the best of the Arctic Circle. Nestled between the Lofoten Islands and Vesteralen Archipelago, go where the bigger ships leave off to discover Norway’s towering Arctic fjords with Azamara. The site of the largest sea eagle population in the world, listen to the call of these majestic kings of flight while keeping your eyes peeled for puffins clinging to cliffs and the other seabirds that call these steep mountainsides home. In the water below, otters and seals play in surf teeming with fish and the occasional porpoise or whale.

Day 9 - Tromso, Norway

Arrive: Wed 09 August 2023 at 12:00 / Depart: Wed 09 August 2023 at 22:00

Far north of the Arctic Circle, Tromsø is surrounded by a dramatic landscape of snow-capped peaks, scattered islands, and fjords, a scene best observed by taking the cable car up Storsteinen Mountain. In town the striking Arctic Cathedral mirrors the setting in glass and concrete, its triangular façade representative of an iceberg pointing to the sky. This part of the country is home to the Sami, Norway’s indigenous people, with their own language, culture, and traditional pursuits of fishing, hunting, and reindeer herding. Stop in at the Wilderness Center to say hello to Tove and Tore, their children, and more than 100 Alaskan huskies.

Day 10 - Honningsvaag

Arrive: Thu 10 August 2023 at 13:00 / Depart: Thu 10 August 2023 at 20:00

Honningsvag, population 4000, is the last village before the North Cape. The Midnight Sun shines here unceasingly from mid-May to the end of July, during which time the hamlet’s numbers swell, as the Sami people and their reindeer herds settle on the outskirts of town. No one lives permanently at the North Cape itself, but many come to visit this majestic cliff, rising over 1000 feet above the sea, providing a lookout over a limitless panorama stretching silently to the North Pole. Ingeniously concealed inside the cliff is North Cape Hall, where you can ponder the vastness in comfort.

Day 10 - North Cape (cruising)

Day 11 - Alta

Arrive: Fri 11 August 2023 at 09:00 / Depart: Fri 11 August 2023 at 17:00

There’s nothing like the land above the Arctic Circle—and Alta is a always stunning. Tucked into the Altafjord, it enjoys a warmer, drier climate than other ports in Northern Norway. Rugged landscapes roll down to meet the calm waters of the sheltered harbor, and local Sami culture thrives in one of the world’s most northerly cities. Inspired by the aurora borealis that illuminate Alta in winter, visit the Northern Lights Cathedral and marvel at its steel sheet design that captures the essence of this natural phenomenon. Inside, tour enchanting illuminated artwork and visit interactive exhibits to learn more about the Northern Lights.

Day 12 - Harstad

Arrive: Sat 12 August 2023 at 10:00 / Depart: Sat 12 August 2023 at 20:00

Quaint, primary-colored houses and church steeples peek out from a treed hillside surrounding deep blue Atlantic waters, welcoming you to this beautiful Nordic port. Named after the old farm for which the city was built on, Harstad is more popularly known to locals as “The Pearl of Vågsfjorden.” The land of the midnight sun, Norway experiences a full 24 hours of daylight during the summer months between May and July. The most darkness you might experience is when the sun dips just below the horizon, so take advantage of this phenomena by exploring the edge of the Arctic Circle to the fullest.

Day 13 - Bodo

Arrive: Sun 13 August 2023 at 08:00 / Depart: Sun 13 August 2023 at 17:00

Adventure is endless in a land where the sun barely sets in the summer months. Just north of the Arctic Circle, Bodø is one of Norway’s fastest growing cities, full of urban excitement while remaining deeply connected to its rich natural surroundings. It’s home to a diverse community of artists all keen to capture such amazing seaside splendor, a lively music scene, and ample shopping opportunities.

Day 14 - Trondheim

Arrive: Mon 14 August 2023 at 13:30 / Depart: Mon 14 August 2023 at 22:00

A city founded over 1,000 years ago is certain to be rich in history and culture. Now the country’s third largest municipality, it’s been Norway’s capital city, a site of countless coronations, and an important pilgrimage for worshipers of the Christian faith. Today, Trondheim is a vibrant, youthful city that embraces the simplicity of Scandinavian life. But don’t let this laid back lifestyle fool you— there is so much to discover beneath Trondheim’s calm exterior.

Day 15 - At Sea

Day 16 - At Sea

Day 17 - Amsterdam

Arrive: Thu 17 August 2023 at 06:00 / Depart: Thu 17 August 2023

Amsterdam has a personality all its own, including a long time reputation for tolerance. You'll be thinking of tulips and wooden shoes, perhaps Heineken beer, and some of the city's past inhabitants: Rembrandt, Van Gogh, and Anne Frank, who wrote her famous diary hidden in a canal-side house. But do you know that Amsterdam has more canals than Venice (connecting a jigsaw puzzle of 90 islands), joined by some 1280 bridges (many illuminated by fairy lights at night)? Or that it boasts the oldest stock exchange in the world?
