Europe & British Isles, New and Noteworthy

Scandinavian Discovery: Vibrant Cities, Coastal Villages, and Seafaring History

Scandinavia’s cultural capitals and archipelagos

On a voyage to four Scandinavian countries, experience the region’s varied landscapes and regions, from dramatic fjords to tranquil archipelagos. The intertwined histories and seafaring heritage of Finland, Sweden, Denmark, and Norway are ever-present in well-preserved Viking ships, stone fortresses, and medieval Old Towns. Standing stones and palaces, sheep farms, and distilleries paint a full picture of multi-faceted destinations that have persevered through millennia of history and evolved into culturally rich and aesthetically beautiful modern countries that demonstrate deep respect for their pasts. 

  • Delve into the captivating capital cities of four Scandinavian countries—Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Oslo—discovering their timeless Old Towns as well as their flourishing contemporary culture

  • Explore peaceful wooded islands and small rocky islets of Ekenäs Archipelago National Park aboard a kayak or Zodiac

  • Capture the beauty of the southern Norwegian fjords and their quaint fishing villages alongside a National Geographic photography expert

  • Experience the unique maritime culture of Finland’s Åland Islands, an autonomous Swedish-speaking archipelago, and explore Visby, a UNESCO site and one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Scandinavia

  • Get immersed in local Danish culture through a special musical performance curated by our ethnomusicologist Jacob Edgar during your two days in Copenhagen

Day By Day

With an expert Expedition Team, learn about the enthralling histories of the places we visit, from the Vikings who built the walled medieval town of Visby to the inspiring expeditions of Norwegian explorers. Spend time in vibrant cities, walking through Old Towns and visiting museums that illuminate thousands of years of cultural heritage. Discover sleepy coastal villages and lesser-known archipelagos like Finland’s fascinating Åland Islands. Sail through Norway’s legendary fjords and along Copenhagen’s picturesque canals. There will be opportunities to explore bucolic landscapes by Zodiac and kayak, bicycle, and coastal hikes. Performances by local musicians and extra time at leisure in ports where we dock overnight will enrich the expedition experience.
