  1. Gateway to the Fjords - Bergen

    Your special summer expedition cruise starts in Bergen – one of Norway’s most beautiful cities and perfect for exploring on foot.

    Bergen was founded in 1070 A.D. and has retained much of its local character, charm, and history. Stroll the UNESCO-listed Bryggen district, with colorful wharfs dating back to the 14th century. Wander cobblestone streets and slip into narrow alleyways fronted by old wooden houses. Sample pickled herring or buy fresh shrimp right off the boat at Bergen’s famous fish market. Drop into one of the city’s many outdoor restaurants or beer gardens and sip a local Hansa pilsner. You can also see artwork by such famous artists as Edvard Munch, or enjoy a trip on the Fløibanen funicular, where you can admire sweeping views of the surrounding fjords, islands, and seven mountains encircling the city.

    After departing Bergen, sit down to a delicious dinner and watch the scenery glide by. We’re sailing to the High North on a route once plied by the Vikings. Perhaps spend the rest of the evening getting to know members of the expedition team and other passengers, or relax on deck in the late spring and summer sunshine.
