Close in on European coastal life from north to south experiencing people, culture and climate.
Experience European coast gems from north to south. The journey starts in Bergen, on the west coast of Norway in the city coined “The Gateway to the Fjords”. The old Hanseatic vibe of the city, with its UNESCO site of Bryggen and the fish market Fisketorget, makes for quite a unique experience. It offers a taste of the urbanity to come in Amsterdam, our first port-of-call after crossing the North Sea.
From shopping to eyes dropping
Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, invites you to explore its history and contemporary urban flair by foot, by bike or by canal boat. The journey then continues through the English Channel to the captivating region of Normandy, France. In the Gulf of Biscay, you might want to go up on deck to look out for dolphins, whales and sea birds.
As we continue south you can really feel we are catching up with summer. The Hercules Tower, the oldest Roman lighthouse in use today, welcomes you to La Coruña in Spain with its Celtic and Roman heritage.
Portuguese past and present
The journey continues to the two biggest cities in Portugal, Porto and Lisbon. Porto is known for its many monuments by leading world architects from the past and the present. Europe’s second-oldest capital Lisbon (after Athens) welcomes you to UNESCO World Heritage sites and the acclaimed Fado nights, where you can experience live folksong performances at cafés and bars all over town.
