Europe & British Isles

North Sea Voyage: Northern Europe & the Normandy Beaches

A journey through art, architecture, and WWII history

Voyage from Copenhagen to London along the canals and coastline of the North Sea, exploring beautiful coastal cities as well as the crucial and storied role the region has played in history. Stroll through charming, canal-side towns that sprang up along Old World trade routes. Marvel at the elaborate architecture of medieval ruling capitals and reflect at the sites of battles that helped determine the outcome of World War II. There will be time to indulge your personal interests, and you may choose to explore each site with the naturalist or historian whose background and personality matches your own. Meet the lively characters who make up the contemporary scene in towns along the way with  National Geographic Explorer as your home base as you experience Europe from a unique vantage point—the sea.

  • Take in the stunning architecture in Lübeck, a medieval German city founded in 1143

  • Cruise the storybook canals of Bruges on a private boat tour

  • Explore Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum to see The Night Watch, perhaps the most famous of Rembrandt’s paintings

  • Walk in the footsteps of Allied soldiers along Omaha Beach, a WWII site that was part of the largest amphibious invasion in history

  • Sail past England’s otherworldly Cliffs of Dover, rising 350 feet from the sea, and navigate up the River Thames toward London
