LONDON, ENGLAND – Protected from the frequent storms of the English Channel by the Isle of Wight, Southampton has survived a turbulent history to serve as a principal port of the United Kingdom today. Pay homage to one of the most famous ships to sail these shores at the Mayflower Memorial. Visit the stoic walls of Bargate and the Tudor House Museum.
HAUGALANDET, NORWAY – Although the region of Haugalandet has a rich Viking heritage, Haugesund is a vibrant young city touting culture and arts festivals. The Folgefonna Glacier to the north and the Preikestolen Mountains to the south – creates an enchanting backdrop for seemingly endless possibilities for outdoor exploration. Discover the Langfoss Waterfall – nominated by CNN as “One of the 10 Most Beautiful Waterfalls in the World” – that rushes down a steep mountainside and into the fjord below. Enjoy a scenic hike or bike ride on one of the many trails crisscrossing the landscape or visit the tranquil beaches of Karmøy for breathtaking views.
BERGEN, NORWAY – View this lovely and charming Norwegian city from your cruise ship and you’ll see how the city is nestled between seven mountains, seven fjords and the North Sea. The Norwegian King resided here, and many historical events took place in this busy port. These events come alive when you amble down the old streets of Bryggen, past picturesque, wooden buildings and the Romanesque-style St. Mary’s church.
LEKNES / LOFTEN ISLANDS, NORWAY – This island city is Norway’s most populous municipality. The harbour town is a shopping mecca in the Lofoten islands, boasting a range of stores. The rocky surrounding cliffs and pristine waters offers picturesque views.
TROMSO, NORWAY – Tromsø is the largest city above the Arctic Circle and is a jump-off point for Arctic explorations. Visit the museum for insights into Lapp culture, and see the city’s strikingly modern Arctic Cathedral.
HONNINGSVAG, NORWAY – Honningsvag is Norway’s third largest harbour and the last port of call before heading eastward to the Arctic Ocean. This is one of the best towns in northern Norway to experience the beauty of continuous daylight. Rebuilt in the 50’s after being destroyed during World War II, Honningsvag has colourful, modern buildings dotting its landscape. Situated in the Island of Mageroya – with a population of 2,600 – Honningsvag has a cosmopolitan flair and yet retains the charm of a small enclave. Fishing is the main industry of this Arctic Circle town and the port is always brimming with activity.
ALESUND, NORWAY – One of Norway’s most beautiful towns, renowned for its Jugend-style architecture and art nouveau style. Cruise visitors will immediately notice Alesund’s unique layout, as it is built on islands extending to the sea, and offers scenic views of fjords and the Sunnmore Alps. Alesund is the fishing capital of Norway.
STAVANGER, NORWAY – Chosen as the European Capital of Culture in 2008, Stavanger lies in southwestern Norway’s stunning fjord region. Old Stavanger has been meticulously preserved with many of its wooden cottages converted into art galleries and boutiques. But it’s the museums that set this cosmopolitan city apart. Visit one of Stavanger’s museums to view collections that include maritime, medical and printing artifacts. Or get outside and take a cruise around the fjords. And when in Norway, one should of course buy Norwegian wool. In addition to wool garments, Stavanger also has glasswork, pewter goods and nautical clothing for you to bring home to friends and family (or keep all to yourself).
