Discover the striking landscapes and coastal wonders of Scandinavia as you travel through Sweden, Norway and Denmark.


Board the Royal Caribbean’s Legend of the Seas for a memorable cruise of the Norwegian fjords.



Stockholm, a city built across 14 islands, often referred to as the “Venice of the North,” is one of the world’s most charming cities. Visit City Hall, where the Nobel Prizes are awarded. Stroll the Old Town – Gamla Stan – and see the Riddarholm Church, the Royal Palace and the Parliament.


At the Vasa Museum, learn about the Vasa’s tragic maiden voyage when it sank after sailing only one nautical mile. This ship, commissioned in the 1600s by King Vasa, was raised 334 years later from its sunken ocean home. Perfectly preserved, it offers a rare glimpse into the amazing craftsmanship of the 17th-century.


Dine in the old town at Fem Sma Hus, where five 17th-century timber-framed homes capture the flavor of a bygone era.



Flam is the quintessential Norwegian fairy tale village. Hop on the Flam Railway for a trip through 20 tunnels while riding one of the most interesting and technically brilliant railways in the world.


Travel to Alesund, located along the heart of the Norwegian coastline. This Viking-era fishing village is where you can witness the traditional fishing methods of the region. Numerous restaurants offer meals of fresh seafood direct from the sea. Visit the local museum illustrating the village’s history dating from the Stone Age or learn about the sea and sea life at one of the largest saltwater aquariums in Europe.


Journey to Geirangerfjord, a hilltop village lying at the end of a steep and narrow valley that is home to one of the largest fjords in western Norway. This fjord is 10 miles long, cutting its way inland and creating sheer cliffs laced with streaming waterfalls, including the Seven Sisters and the Bridal Veil. Join an excursion from Geiranger to Djupavnett Lake and the Dalsnibba glacier, dissected by numerous rivers. While in town, be sure to visit the Geiranger Church, a wooden structure built in an octagonal shape.


Visit Bryggen, Bergen’s old Hanseatic wharf, a UNESCO World Heritage site. You also may choose to visit the Håkonshallen, part of Bergen's ancient fortress and a must-see attraction. Completed in the 13th-century, its first recorded use was in 1261 for the marriage celebration of King Magnus Håkinsson and Princess Ingeborg of Denmark.



Discover Cophenhagen, viewing Denmark’s center of Parliament known as Christianborg; Amalienborg Palace, the 10th-century residence of the Danish Royal Family; and the Royal Theater.


Visit the Little Mermaid statue, a tribute to the city's most famous son, Hans Christian Andersen.


Explore the fantasy world of Tivoli Gardens, the second oldest amusement park in the world. With fireworks displays every Saturday, daily live music and fun rides, it’s sure to bring out the kid in everyone.
