Norway and Scandinavia Cruises 2019 - 2020

Explore stunning glaciers and towering fjords on a cruise to Norway and Scandinavia!

Norway and Scandinavia

Discover some of the world’s most spectacular natural landscapes on board a cruise to northern Europe. Marvel at Norway’s majestic fjords, indulge in the warmth of Iceland’s thermal springs or gaze upon the rugged Arctic landscape of northern Sweden. Learn the secret to "hygge," the Scandinavian concept of coziness that's sweeping the world. Experience the curious midnight sun, or witness the incredible phenomenon of the Northern Lights. A cruise to Scandinavia is for the adventurous traveler looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The high season for a cruise to Scandinavia runs from May to September, where the summer sun makes for smooth sailings and mild weather. Summer is also high season for wildlife viewing. Expect to get up close and personal with reindeer, elk and Arctic foxes during shore excursions, and watch the whales come astonishingly close to the ship. If you're lucky, you may even see a polar bear hunting among the glaciers.
