Highlights of this cruise:
Start your cruise with a departure from the home port of the EUROPA 2.
Get to know the port city on the west coast of Norway with an active Segway tour*. Take a stroll through the Hanseatic Bryggen quarter with its historic wooden buildings, or pause to enjoy the superb view from nearby Mount Floyen*.
Norway’s most famous fjord stretches 15 km (9.3 mi.) and is surrounded by steep rock faces up to 1,500 m (4,921 ft) in height. Enjoy the panoramic view from your front-row seat on your private veranda, explore on land* with a trip to the Dalsnibba* with its impressive view and height of 1,500 m (4,921 ft), or paddle a kayak* to the “Seven Sisters” waterfalls.
Get to know “Norway’s capital of art nouveau” with its wealth of architecture and history on a guided walking tour*. A trip to the islands of Giske* and Godoy* also offers wonderful views.
Lerwick/Mainland/Shetland Islands/Great Britain
Get a feel for the headstrong scenery and the Scottish and Norwegian influences. Visit Scalloway Castle*, the picturesque Loch of Tingwall* and Wormadale Hill*, where you can enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding water. Or for a sporty alternative, hike* to Mousa Broch or ride a Shetland pony* through the unspoilt natural landscape.
Kirkwall/Orkney Islands/Great Britain
From the largest of the Orkney Islands, prehistoric times are not so far away. Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of the Stones of Stenness*, the Ring of Brodgar* stone circle and the Skara Brae* Stone Age village. Connoisseurs can look forward to the Highland Park whisky distillery*.
Portree/Isle of Skye/Scotland/Great Britain
The idyllic fishing village is the ideal starting point for a visit to the Isle of Skye* and Dunvegan Castle*, which is over 800 years old. Eilean Donan Castle* is another highlight – the castle featured in Highlander and is the most-photographed scene in Scotland.
Douglas/Isle of Man/Great Britain
The island will entice you to stay a while with the quaint little towns, castles and a breathtaking view from Snaefell, the highest mountain, which you will reach with an old mountain railway.
