    The highlights of this cruise

    Your adventure begins in KIEL, taking you high into the realm of the Vikings. Stone houses typical of the Shetland Islands rise up from the lush green fields of LERWICK. A walk along Commercial Street will show you what life is like in the island capital. One day at sea takes you to Iceland. Volcanic and icy landscapes, steaming geysers and thundering waterfalls have been fuelling imaginations for centuries. Excursions* from REYKJAVIK take you to the greatest natural spectacles. How about a thrilling drive in a four-wheel-drive super truck across the icy glacier snout of Langjokull*? With almost 20,000 residents, AKUREYRI is Iceland’s second-largest city and a key economic driver, despite its tranquillity. The tiny island of Grimsey near the Arctic Circle is a world unto itself. Travel in a small plane* to Iceland’s most northerly outpost, buffeted by the waves of the Atlantic, to explore the island’s Arctic flora and its single village.

    Glaciers calved from the endless ice, snow-covered peaks and remote villages – adventurous hearts will beat faster when SPITSBERGEN’S rugged coast appears on the horizon, announcing thrilling expeditionary landings. European explorer Willem Barents named this icy beauty back in 1596. The mountains rise up to 1,700 m (5,577 ft) out of the Arctic Ocean, and fascinated explorers such as Roald Amundsen. At the beginning of the 20th century, he set off from NY-ALESUND to explore the North Pole, laying the foundations for polar exploration. The captain will determine your stops at short notice depending on the weather and ice. For example, look forward to a seafarer’s experience in Mollerhafen. This is home to Lloyd Hotel, a former refuge for explorers where you can enter your name in the guest book. The coming days will also revolve around Spitsbergen’s extraordinary nature: the Monacobreen carves its way through the Liefdefjord, leaving you staring in astonishment at its shimmering icy surface. Enjoy the view of the vast fjord landscape from the deck and, with a little luck, you will spot whales and polar bears as you make your way to LONGYEARBYEN. As you bid farewell to Spitsbergen, a unique treat awaits: explore the Arctic tundra on husky sleds*, which travel on wheels during the snow-free season.

    Look forward to spectacular views of Norway’s coast as you continue on to TROMSO. Much of your time in this bustling city will be shaped by the polar sea – for example as you explore its history in the Tromso Museum* or learn all about the wildlife in the state-of-the-art Polaria centre*. The cosy charm of the Lofoten Islands greets you in the fishing town of SVOLVAER. Our tip: make sure to try the local fish specialities. The port at BERGEN is a delight for every cruise passenger. The mooring point is just a few metres from the old Hanseatic quarter of Bryggen*, its colourful houses now filled with little cafes and boutiques inviting you to while away the time. Enjoy another wonderful day at sea before bidding farewell to the EUROPA in HAMBURG.

    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.
