Planned itinerary pre-cruise tour

Day 1: San Diego / Arrival

Take the chance to enhance your Hurtigruten adventure with an overnight in the “finest city in America.”

Stay the night at a centrally located hotel in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, leaving the rest of the day at your leisure.

If you want a taste of authentic Mexican food, you are in the right place. Stroll through the Old Town area on your own and find the perfect restaurant.

Day 2: San Diego / Embarkation

Start the day with breakfast at your hotel before your four-hour guided city tour begins.

Enjoy the Cabrillo National Monument, which is located at the southern tip of the Point Loma Peninsula in San Diego. The park offers a beautiful view of San Diego's harbor and skyline. On clear days, you can gaze out over the vast Pacific Ocean.

Next, you’re on your way to visit Old Town, the historic heart of San Diego and the first settlement in California, established in 1769 as a fort. Wander through lush gardens or browse at one of many specialty shops for treasures from around the world. Year-round, Old Town is the best spot for food, folklore, and fun.

The tour also shows you such San Diego highlights as Petco Park, the San Diego Convention Center, Santa Fe Depot and the waterfront Embarcadero. At the end of your tour, we return to the Gaslamp district to experience this lively neighborhood by daylight. You'll discover eclectic galleries, chic boutiques, rooftop bars and craft beer haunts. Fine dining restaurants line the streets, where modern architecture and late Victorian-era buildings stand side-by-side.

Your pre-cruise Land Adventure ends at San Diego pier in time for embarkation.

Please note that the order of visited sites may vary.
