Show / hide full Day by Day Itinerary
Depart Australia on your flight tonight.
Welcome to London! You will be met on arrival at London Heathrow Airport and taken your your hotel. The rest of the day is at your leisure to explore the city.
❱ Hotel stay: London (2 nights)
Enjoy a full day at leisure to explore the city of London.
You will be transferred from your hotel in London to the port of Tilbury to board the Marco Polo. Setting sail at 5.30pm, you will enjoy a night at leisure onboard to enjoy a welcome dinner & entertainment.
❱ Ocean cruise: Marco Polo (13 nights)
Enjoy 2 days at sea to to take advantage of the many activities available onboard the Marco Polo as you sail across from the UK to Norway.
The southernmost of the three short branches at the inner end of Nordfjord terminates in Olden. The charming village sits amongst tidy, well-kept farms on gently sloping, fertile hillsides, which then rise steeply into thickly wooded and rugged peaks. From the village the beautiful Oldendalen Valley runs between towering mountains to the edge of the mighty Jostedalsbreen Glacier. Briksdal Glacier is one of the more accessible arms of the Jostedalsbreen. The creeping pitted tentacle of ice features in optional excursions from Olden together with glorious waterfalls, glacier fed rivers and wonderful mountain lakes.
Spend a full day in the beautiful city of Kristiansund, Norway.
Relax onboard the Marco Polo as you sail from Kristiansund to Alta.
The largest town in Finnmark, Alta stretches along the inner part of the Altafjord and on the banks of one of Norway’s best rivers for salmon fishing, the Alta River. Today’s town has three centres. Bossekop with its old trading and market traditions, Elvebakken to the east with the town’s airport and harbour, and the new town with its shops. Large areas of woodlands and parts of the high plateau of Finnmarksvidda surround Alta, which in summer enjoys the white nights of the midnight sun and of a winter night often has the northern lights dancing across its skies.
Though Norwegian law states that a city in Norway must have 5,000 inhabitants, tiny Honningsvaag, a community of around 2,500, is one of the smallest cities in Norway having been granted this status in 1996. The ’city’ lies on the south-eastern side of a large island called Magerøya in the Barents Sea. It is the starting point of excursions to the dramatic North Cape where from a high plateau the monumental 307-metre high cliff plunges into the Atlantic. From here only endless ocean lies between the northernmost point of Europe and the North Pole.
Not surprisingly for a city that lies almost 220 miles north of the Arctic Circle many of Tromsø’s landmarks lay claim to the world’s ‘northernmost’ titles. The ‘Capital of the Arctic’ is home to the world’s northernmost university, cathedral, botanic garden and brewery. A cable car runs to the summit of Mount Storsteinen from where there are wonderful views of the lively and beautiful city built on two islands and the mainland, which are linked by both tunnels and bridges. The Polar Museum is just one of Tromsø’s fine museums and the striking Arctic Cathedral is undoubtedly a highlight.
Modern Narvik was the first industrial town in Northern Norway. It was given town status in 1902 when the Ofoten Railway was completed to haul iron ore from Kiruna in Sweden to the ice-free port of Narvik. Narvik became the focus of the world’s attention in 1940 and five years of German occupation are documented in the Nordland Red Cross War Memorial Museum. The cable car on Narvikfjellet Mountain opens up an incredible bird’s eye view of the town and dramatic landscape around Ofotfjorden. Outside the town in the Salagsdalen Valley is one of the world’s northernmost zoos.
Enjoy another day at sea as you sail from Narvik to Bergen.
Known as the ‘Gateway to the Fjords’, Bergen is Norway’s second largest city. Yet with a population of less than a quarter of a million, it has the feel of a small town. It is beautifully sited against a backdrop of seven mountains and the funicular ride to the summit of Mount Fløien affords wonderful panoramic views of Bergen and Norway’s attractive coastline. Overlooking the harbour the colourful Bryggen wharf is the face of Bergen. The characteristic wooden gabled buildings were once the home and offices of Hanseatic merchants but today house shops selling crafts and traditional souvenirs.
Enjoy a final day at sea today as your ship sails from Norway back to the UK.
Sadly today marks the end of your Europe holiday. After breakfast, disembark from your cruise and be transferred to London Heathrow Airport in time for your flight home.
Arrive back in Australia today on your flight from London.
*Depending on flight schedules, you may arrive back in Australia on the morning of Day 19 instead. This will be advised on your booking confirmation.
