Setting sail from Rotterdam
One of the great ports of Europe, Rotterdam's impressive skyline can be seen from far and wide. With great architecture both ancient and modern, fantastic exhibition and concert halls, theatres, pretty galleries and numerous museums, there is so much to do when you stay here. Excellent restaurants reflect global influences, and in this metropolitan city there is also a great night life. During the day, the shopping is excellent, and countless small harbours are situated along the banks of Rotterdam's river, the Maas, each with its own unique character.
Visit the historic and picturesque area of Delfshaven, exploring the tiny courtyards and buildings laced with canals. The Pilgrim Fathers fled England to stay here before continuing to North America.
When Ålesund was destroyed by fire in 1904, the German Kaiser Wilhelm II agreed to foot the bill to rebuild it. The result was the stunning Art Nouveau architecture that you see today, which blends elements of the German 'Jugendstil' with Viking flourishes.
The Geirangerfjord is arguably the most spectacular fjord in all of Norway, a sinuous ten mile stretch of sheer mountain walls and tumbling waterfalls. The village of Geiranger itself sits at one end of the fjord, and in summer the population swells with an influx of visitors to this beautiful region.
Beautiful Bergen, Norway’s former capital, is a perfect city to explore on foot. Bryggen – the old Hanseatic wharf, and a UNESCO World Heritage site – still has the old harbour timber buildings, whilst other attractions include the funicular up Mount Floyen and the busy fish market.
Arriving in Rotterdam
