Northern Europe has the medieval cities of the Baltic Sea, the dramatic Norwegian Fjords, the historic cities and islands of Western Europe and the volcanoes of Iceland. The Baltic is surrounded by historic medieval cities boasting some wonderful art and architecture. The grandeur of the Norwegian Fjords, edged by snow-capped mountains and dotted with glaciers, are only rivalled by those of Alaska. Western Europe offers cities like Amsterdam, London and Dublin and voyages that cruise around the British Isles and out to Iceland.
Crossed by the trade routes of the medieval traders of the Hanseatic ports, the Baltic is fringed by historic cities to explore. St Petersberg has its baroque palaces of the Czars and priceless art treasures and Tallin its fairytale towers and turrets. The cities of Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen provide a glimpse of Scandinavian life and history. You can also visit historic Gdansk in Poland or Berlin from the port of Warnemunde. Cruises depart from the UK, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Hamburg and are normally 7 to 12 nights long.
