Ports

  • Oslo

    Norway is a land steeped in myth, where irascible gods armed with frost and lightning once inspired Viking clans to plunder foreign lands. These days, genteel customs imported from mainland Europe have softened the country’s hard edges, but traces of an unruly past still abound. The exceptional museums dotting the Bygdøy Peninsula hold some of the city’s foremost attractions, including a thousand-year-old longship that was preserved in mud and the 12th-century Gol Stave Church, an exemplar of Norway’s distinctive wood sanctuaries. No less fascinating is a visit to the 1892 Fram, a legendary ship revered for her vital role in early polar explorations. To witness the evolution of Oslo’s soul, contrast battle-hardened Akershus Fortress, a ruggedly elegant citadel wrapped in nearly impregnable ramparts, with the neoclassical Royal Palace, whose formal exterior encloses sumptuously appointed rooms. You might wish to view Edvard Munch’s iconic The Scream, which hangs in the outstanding Norwegian National Gallery amid priceless European and Scandinavian masterworks. In expansive Frogner Park, wander among Gustav Vigeland’s thought-provoking sculptures, and if you’ve worked up an appetite, choose among the many restaurants and cafés lining the charming waterfront district of Aker Brygge.

  • Exploration Day

  • Bergen

    In the distant 14th-century, the powerful merchant guilds of the Hanseatic League established an overseas office in Bergen, thus transforming a sleepy fishing village into a strategically vital trading hub. Their legacy endures in Bryggen, a harborside district of colorful Hanseatic warehouses and a UNESCO World Heritage site. For an invaluable glimpse into Norwegian life in the 18th and 19th centuries, visit the Old Bergen Museum, where wooden homes and shops characteristic of the city’s past are populated with vintage furnishings and reenactors in period attire. You’ll want to have your camera ready at Bergen’s faithful recreation of the Fantoft Stave Church, a uniquely Norwegian place of worship built from wood and characterized by sharply sloped roofs and Viking motifs. In Bergenhus Fortress, admire medieval stone buildings that are among the best preserved in Norway, including compellingly austere Haakon's Hall. To fully appreciate Bergen’s appeal, take a funicular to the summit of Mount Fløyen for breathtaking views of the city and the surrounding mountains, emerald giants that slumber among sparkling, island-strewn fjords.

  • Nordfjord & Selje

    Legend has it that Norway’s Saint Sunniva fled to this stunning fjord-cleaved region rather than marry a heathen Irish king. Once you view Selje’s panorama of striking mountains that give way to verdant valleys and sparkling bays, you’ll understand what drew her to this exquisite land. Cross a narrow channel to Selja Island, where the captivating remains of a 12th-century Benedictine monastery endure as testament to the saint’s renown. Remarkably, the abbey’s wonderfully austere tower stands nearly intact above a carpet of emerald grass and lovely wildflowers that flutter in the breeze. Hike the Risnakken trail for wonderful vistas over Selje and the glistening maze of waterways that lead to the Norwegian Sea, and then continue your exploration on the windswept terrain of Vestkapp, the westernmost point in Norway still connected to the mainland. In a cozy restaurant crowning Vestkapp’s seaside plateau, savor home-made Norwegian specialties while reveling in far-reaching views of the rugged coast. Sitting on a cliffside boulder beside the vast, rippling sea, you’ll feel a stirring sense of communion with nature’s boundless beauty.

  • Alesund

    Sail into an awe-inspiring realm seemingly shaped by titans, who carved meandering watery pathways between densely forested peaks. Alesund is the gateway to Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage site whose scenery of sheer bluffs capped by pristine woodland exemplifies the best of the Norwegian fjords. However, the town is also known for its extensive art nouveau architecture, built in the early 20th century after a destructive fire razed nearly every existing structure. Walk streets lined with pastel homes adorned with turrets and other whimsical touches, popping into enticing shops offering wild raspberry jams and locally made wool sweaters. The Atlanterhavsparken, or Atlantic Sea Park, provides a terrific look at Norway’s indigenous marine life, with giant tanks holding salmon, cod and halibut as well as enchanting exhibits featuring harbor seals and sea otters. Gain a bird’s-eye view of the entire city from the Fjellstua viewpoint, reached by an invigorating 400 steps but well worth your efforts as you gaze across a landscape of jade-green islands and sinuous waterways. On nearby Godøy Island, stand at Earth’s threshold beneath the red-and-white striped Alnes Lighthouse, since 1852 safely guiding sailors to Alesund’s sheltered shores.

  • Lofoten Islands

    In Lofoten, you could take a photograph with your eyes shut and still be nearly guaranteed to capture a frame-worthy panorama. Explore this cluster of breathtakingly exquisite islands, some nearly flat and coated in vividly green meadows and others pierced by picturesquely jagged mountains that reach for the heavens. Aquamarine waters kiss pale-sand beaches that wouldn’t seem out of place in the South Pacific, an unexpected paradise for both bathers and surfers. To feel on top of the world, conquer the peaks of Ryten, Svolvaer Fløya or Festvågtind, moderately challenging ascents with enormously rewarding views of land and sea. You’ll delight in the area’s fishing villages, whose buildings are painted in cheerful colors that charmingly contrast with the granite walls of the surrounding mountains. Visit historic Nusfjord and gain insight into the region’s seafaring heritage, as the town is an open-air museum featuring a cod-liver oil factory and an old-fashioned store among its many attractions. In quaint Reine, stroll along the breakwater to the lighthouse and take in awe-inspiring views of colossal Reinebringen Mountain. As you sup on the region’s delectable seafood, the spirited conversation among your traveling companions will certainly center on the indelible beauty of glorious Lofoten.

  • Tysfjorden

    Glide into majestic Tysfjorden, a branching waterway that offers a glimpse into Norway at its most unspoiled. The deepest fjord in the region, its shores are lined with a variety of stunning landscapes, from commanding granite-faced mountains to gently sloping terrain blanketed in densely packed evergreens. Gaze in awe at iconic Stetind, a spire-like peak whose stark slopes reach spectacularly for the skies. Along the way, you’ll pass enchanting villages with cherry-red and mustard-hued buildings that provide a vivid pop of color against the azure, green and gray of the surrounding scenery. In lovely Korsnes, walk along the pier and keep your eye trained on both water and sky, as you might catch sight of sea otters, cormorants, sea eagles and even harbor porpoises. Learn about the fascinating Sámi people, otherwise known as Laplanders, at the town of Drag’s Árran Lule Sámi Center, studying absorbing artifacts and traditional garb. Carved into a smooth rock that gradually drops into Tysfjorden, discover 9,000-year-old etchings of native creatures including a bear, elk, reindeer, two swans and a life-size killer whale, marvelous mementos of long-gone tribes who once inhabited this sublime setting.

  • Tromsø

    If you’re seeking a northern Eden, it doesn’t get much closer than Tromsø, an unhurried city cradled by spectacular fjords and titanic mountains. Depending on the date of your visit, you might be favored by the northern lights, among nature’s most magnificent displays, or marvel at the nightless days of the midnight sun. Wind along the glasslike waters of the Balsfjorden, Kaldfjorden, Ullsfjorden and Malangen fjords, watching achingly beautiful panoramas unfold as you keep a sharp eye out for seals, eagles and reindeer. In Tromsø, delight in the angular forms of the Arctic Cathedral, which evokes a steep, snow-coated mountain or slabs of ice jutting into the sky. A short distance away, ride a cable car to nearly 1,400 feet above sea level for sweeping views of the town and the intense blues, greens and whites of the surrounding scenery. Examine a unique array of cold-climate plants at the Arctic-Alpine Botanical Garden, which showcases specimens from far-flung lands such as Tibet, and unwind with a cold one at celebrated Macks Ølbryggeri, a local institution that is proud to be “the world’s northernmost brewery.”

  • At Sea

  • Bjørnøya

    Among its spellbinding natural attractions, the nearly uninhabited island of Bjørnøya, or Bear Island, does not typically play host to its namesake animal, although polar bears have been known to wander ashore when the Arctic ice pack expands far enough south. The only land mammal that resides here year-round is the elusive arctic fox, but the island is famed for its incredible breeding populations of sea birds, which include northern fulmars, black-legged kittiwakes, little auks and thick-billed guillemots, all numbering in the tens of thousands. Binoculars in hand, watch the birds as they bob on the water or perch on the precipitous cliffs that line the southern coastline. Dip in and out of rocky coves, discovering majestic rock formations shaped over millennia by wind and water, and pass through the astounding Perleporten, a navigable sea cave with entrances at both ends and an unforgettable experience if the weather allows passage. On land, treasure the sight of delicate purple and yellow blooms that vividly contrast with the barren yet dramatically picturesque terrain of the island, a distant place you’ll forever hold near to your heart.

  • Longyearbyen

    Originally established as a mining town along breathtaking Isfjorden, Longyearbyen is now Svalbard’s largest city, a vibrant cultural hub and an ideal launching pad for your polar adventures. Fulfill a lifelong dream by riding a sled pulled by huskies and visit a mysterious ice cave, whose translucent walls gleam in shades of blue and white. Journey to the Russian mining ghost town of Pyramiden, where fascinating vestiges of a once thriving operation still stand, and continue to Barentsburg, an inhabited Russian settlement that offers a compelling contrast to Longyearbyen. For an invigorating adventure, kayak among small chunks of ice floating offshore or hike through Svalbard’s lunar-like landscapes, perhaps ascending to Plateau Mountain for superlative views or trekking to the critically important Global Seed Vault, a repository for Earth’s plant life. Learn the exhilarating tales of intrepid explorers at the North Pole Expedition Museum, where exhibits shed light on some of history’s most daring voyages. Hang up your coat at Huset, a sophisticated eatery that wouldn’t be out of place in the world’s culinary capitals, and try unusual and impeccably prepared regional dishes such as reindeer and seal steak.
