Be immersed in Norway's vibrant culture on this 14-day cruise. In Trondheim, ancient history mingles with college-town energy to create a fascinating city. Don't miss the magnificent Nidaros Cathedral and its patina spires. The colourful Art Nouveau architecture of Alesund is only outdone by its stunning surroundings, including Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage site. For souvenirs, meander the cobbled main street of Kongensgate. In Eidfjord, get up close with nature and photograph Norway's most famous waterfall, Voringsfossen.

Trondheim is Norway's history. The country's annals are written in the buildings and monuments of the nation's historic capital. The timbered architecture of the magnificent 11th-century Domkirke was actually built over the tomb of St. Olav and even today, Norwegian kings continue to be crowned within its massive nave. The city has been the keeper of the kingdom's treasures, values, legends, religious life, national aspirations and in short, Norway's past since 997 when the Viking King, Olav Tryggvason, established this trading port on this yearround ice-free fjord at the mouth of the river Nid.

Svartisen Glacier (Cruising)

With 60 glacier arms stretching into the surrounding valleys, Norway's second largest glacier, Svartisen (Black Glacier), is a spectacular sight. In reality, Svartisen consists of two glaciers, Vestre and Ostre (west and east) and covers an area of 230 square miles-that's about the size of the city of Chicago. It not only attracts visitors from around the world, but also scientists, who study glaciology in a lab 600 feet below the ice. Svartisen is part of Norway's Saltfjellet-Svaritsen National Park, and at only 66 feet above sea level, the glacier is easily accessible to hikers. Look for seal colonies, cascading waterfalls and rainbows as we approach Svartisen.
