Tired of cruises where you sail past beautiful destinations but don’t get to explore? Do days of open sea make you long for the coast?

For the person who wants a different kind of cruise experience, we have options! Browse through our cruise options below, and contact us if you have any questions! Cruises can always be combined with pre- and post-touring customized to your wants and needs by our Nordic Destinations specialists.

Norway’s Hurtigruten cruises sail along the coast of Norway, with breathtaking scenery and daily excursions that get you up-close-and-personal with the awe inspiring coast line of Norway. With cruise options ranging from overnight to 11 days, there’s something for everyone. Start in Bergen, and see the countryside change like a rough gemstone as you sail north to Kirkenes. OR start in Kirkenes and sail south and enjoy views of the ever changing coastline.

The Gota Canal cruise will make you rethink your entire definition of a cruise. Small ships, Swedish cuisine, and land on either side! The Gota Canal takes you through historic Sweden on a canal originally built between 1810-1832 for the purpose of linking the North Sea and the Baltic. Enjoy your fika onboard as you float past farms, locks, Swedish nature and locals. The dining experience onboard will reflect the surroundings you pass by.

To really get out of your comfort zone – travel north. And then keep going! Our Ocean Expedition cruises take you as far north as possible with expedition journey cruises to arctic destinations not limited to Svalbard (Norway), Iceland, Faroe Islands, Greenland and Franz Josef Land. See polar bears, puffins, arctic birds and seals in their home country. Sailing itineraries are sometimes weather dependent. Discover and relive the adventure days of old.
