Day 1 - Southampton

Arrive: Fri 02 August 2024 / Depart: Fri 02 August 2024

The city center is a charming mix of old city walls and a large modern shopping centre. With multiple restaurants, museums, cinemas and theatres there is plenty to be explored. Time spent at embarkation and disembarkation ports may be limited which may restrict availability of shore excursions.

Day 2 - At Sea

Day 3 - Glasgow (tours from Greenock)

Arrive: Sun 04 August 2024 / Depart: Sun 04 August 2024

Glasgow is a port city on the River Clyde in Scotland's western Lowlands. It's famed for its Victorian and art nouveau architecture, a rich legacy of the city's 18th–20th-century prosperity due to trade and shipbuilding. Today it's a national cultural hub, home to institutions including the Scottish Opera, Scottish Ballet and National Theatre of Scotland, as well as acclaimed museums and a thriving music scene

Day 4 - At Sea

Day 5 - At Sea

Day 6 - Grundarfjordur

Arrive: Wed 07 August 2024 / Depart: Wed 07 August 2024

Visionary 19th century novelist Jules Verne was so inspired by the spectacularly volcanic terrain of the Snaefellsnes (Snow Mountain) peninsula, on which the Icelandic cruise port Grundafjordur is located, that he set his epic tale ‘Journey to the Centre of the Earth’ at its heart – Snaefellsjokull.

Day 7 - Reykjavik

Arrive: Thu 08 August 2024

The name means 'Smoky (or Steamy) Bay' but these days the Icelandic capital Reykjavik is even hotter than that. Its reputation now as a truly cultural, cosmopolitan city, with great restaurants and lively nightlife, has made it a hugely popular destination. Another big attraction is the opportunity to swim in open-air pools heated by the very geothermal springs that inspired Reykjavik's name. Not that Reykjavik - or most of Iceland for that matter - is actually icy at all. It may be the most northerly capital in the world and in the 'Land of Fire and Ice', but if you want ice, you have to travel away from the capital on one of the exciting glacier safari tours. But the most popular destination remains the nearby Blue Lagoon geothermal spa, where minerals bubble up from 5,000ft below the earth's surface.

Day 9 - Isafjordur

Arrive: Sat 10 August 2024 / Depart: Sat 10 August 2024

The Icelandic fishing port of Isafjordur is the perfect starting point for those who want to experience the magnificent natural beauty of the West Fjords, and its two valleys of Tungudalur and Engidalur lend themselves well to outdoor pursuits. Surrounded by steep sloping mountains you can indulge in a spot of skiing, golfing, or hiking - just some of the activities on offer. The town is also rich in art, culture and historical significance. Main points of interest include the Slunkariki Art Gallery and the West Fjords Folk Museum which houses a remarkable collection of traditional tools and relics. Nearby Neostikaupstaour consists of the oldest buildings in Iceland, including four from the 18th century, which belonged to Danish merchants. The town centre is interesting to walk around as it has a selection of old streets, small shops and a unique array of houses. Known for its quirky peculiarities don't be surprised to see the barber playing his accordion, the baker training for the marathon or see the goldsmith paddling around in his kayak!

Day 10 - Akureyri

Arrive: Sun 11 August 2024 / Depart: Sun 11 August 2024

A genuine 'Midnight Sun' destination, Akureyri cruise port is a charming Icelandic town with a stunning location on the country's longest fjord - Eyjafjordur. There are several interesting museums and churches but the most amazing feature of Akureyri is its botanical garden - not surprisingly, the most northerly in the world. That this glorious display of flowers and plants thrives is a tribute to the local microclimate which is remarkably mild for somewhere so close to the Arctic Circle. Less surprising is the range of tours to appeal to nature-lovers from whale watching (18 species from minkes to killers have been spotted) to the spectacular 'Waterfall of the Gods' at Godafoss. Along the way, you will also see age-old glaciers, beautiful lakes, bubbling sulphur mud-pits, hidden caves and coves, dormant volcanoes and lava which has turned into bizarre-shaped sculptures.

Day 10 - Eyjafjörður

Day 10 - Hrisey Sail-by

Day 11 - At Sea

Day 12 - At Sea

Day 13 - Honningsvaag

Arrive: Wed 14 August 2024 / Depart: Wed 14 August 2024

They call Honningsvaag the North Cape cruise port these days, as this busy fishing port town on Mageroya Island is the capital of Nordkapp, Norways most northerly municipality. Bounded by the Barents Sea, Nordkapp comprises Mageroya and the facing stretch of mainland, but the place everyone wants to visit is the North Cape Plateau about 20 miles from Honningsvaag.

Day 13 - North Cape

Day 14 - Alta

Arrive: Thu 15 August 2024 / Depart: Thu 15 August 2024

Home to the Cathedral of the Northern Lights, Alta is also the site of the world’s first Northern Lights observatory, built in the late 1800s. This is one of the spots you’re most likely to catch a glimpse of the unpredictable polar light show, earning Alta the title, ' The Town of the Northern Lights'. Other sights of interest include the rock carvings at Hjemmeluft - the first of which was discovered just 60 years ago. The site is now UNESCO protected due to its significance and size and comprises carvings and paintings made between 1800 to 6200 years ago. Please note snow-based shore excursions are not available on autumn cruises.

Day 15 - Tromso

Arrive: Fri 16 August 2024 / Depart: Fri 16 August 2024

It is easy to make the most of a day in Norway's most northerly city and cruise port Tromsø because, in summer, the 'midnight sun' shines around the clock. The best way to see its full glory is to take a cable car 480 metres up to the top of Mount Storsteinen, which affords spectacular views out over the city to the surrounding mountains. You’re just 400km from the Arctic Circle in Tromsø, but there’s no need to get out your polar gear. Thanks to its position on the Gulf Stream, this lively city (said to have the greatest number of bars per capita in Norway) is relatively mild for its latitude. If you're fascinated by the world of snow and ice, the city's Polaria Science Museum is the place to find out all about it. Within its iceberg-shaped walls, you can meet the local wildlife at a vast aquarium, experience an Arctic snowstorm or take a virtual trek through the frozen wilderness to encounter polar bears and see the mystical Northern Lights. Tromso also has a centuries-old heart and some impressive modern architecture, including the beautifully austere, peaked Arctic Cathedral with its icy shards of concrete and glass. Please note snow-based shore excursions are not available on autumn cruises.

Day 16 - Leknes, Lofoten Islands

Arrive: Sat 17 August 2024 / Depart: Sat 17 August 2024

Leknes is a town in Nordland county, Norway. The town is also the administrative centre of the municipality of Vestvågøy. Leknes was designated a "town" in 2002. The 2.52-square-kilometre town has a population of 3,556 which gives the town a population density of 1,411 inhabitants per square kilometre.

Day 17 - At Sea

Day 18 - Kristiansand

Arrive: Mon 19 August 2024 / Depart: Mon 19 August 2024

Kristiansand in Norway has two boasts. First, it's at the head of one of the loveliest of fjords. Second, and more prosaically, it's a leading centre for dried-cod production

Day 19 - Alesund

Arrive: Tue 20 August 2024 / Depart: Tue 20 August 2024

Because it was completely rebuilt after being destroyed by fire in 1904, Alesund looks quite different to other Norwegian towns along the country's west coast now better known as simply 'Fjordland'. Stretching across three islands at the mouth of the magnificent Geirangerfjord, Alesunds architecture is now an eclectic mixture of mock-Gothic and neo-classical with more than a dash of Art Nouveau. Turrets and spires dot the skyline and you can trace the towns trend setting style development at the Art Nouveau Centre, one of several fascinating museums in the town. The pick is the open-air Sunnmre while the Atlantic Sea-Park is also worth a visit as one of the largest aquariums in northern Europe.

Day 20 - At Sea

Day 21 - At Sea

Day 22 - Southampton

Arrive: Fri 23 August 2024 / Depart: Fri 23 August 2024

The city center is a charming mix of old city walls and a large modern shopping centre. With multiple restaurants, museums, cinemas and theatres there is plenty to be explored. Time spent at embarkation and disembarkation ports may be limited which may restrict availability of shore excursions.
