    DETAILED ITINERARY

    Day 1 - Bergen, Norway


    Step aboard your ship to begin your journey. Encircled by majestic mountains, fjords and glaciers, Bergen was home to Viking sagas. With your ship berthed next to Bryggen wharf, a UNESCO Site, easily stroll along its waterfront. This evening mingle with the locals and dine ashore, as we will be spending the night in port.

    Day 2 - Bergen, Norway


    Awake in Bergen and further explore this Norwegian treasure. See the beautiful 18th-century wooden houses, and visit the Hanseatic Museum on your included tour. Or take an excursion to Troldhaugen, the home of Edvard Grieg, Norway's famous composer, or a trip to the top of Mt. Ulriken where you can savor an Ulriken bun, a cinnamon pastry, with a view that is equally as indulgent.

    Day 3 - Shetland Islands (Lerwick), Scotland


    Admire the rugged beauty of one of Scotland's remote island outposts today. You'll set out to explore the main island's southern reaches on an included tour. After a panoramic drive through charming Lerwick, the Shetlands' only burgh, stop at the limestone hamlet of Fladdabister, the crofting town of Aithsetter and a 2,000-year-old castle. Or, visit the remarkable archaeological site of Jarlshof instead, stunning evidence of a thriving Viking presence.

    Day 4 - Torshavn, Faroe Islands


    Explore the legacy of Vikings in the scenic Faroe Islands, located halfway between Norway and Iceland. Once home to the Viking Parliament, the island's capital of Torshavn occupies the archipelago's most historic peninsula. During your visit, a scenic drive reveals the breathtaking fjords of Kaldbak and Kollafjorour, magnificent island vistas and a rich salmon fishing culture ... all infused with a welcoming Nordic spirit.

    Day 5 - Cruise the Atlantic Ocean


    As you sail westward into the Atlantic, take advantage of the many amenities of your ship. You might attend an enriching onboard talk to learn about your upcoming ports. Lounge by the Main Pool with its retractable roof and enjoy a cocktail at the Aquavit Bar.

    Day 6 - Reykjavik, Iceland


    Explore Reykjavik, one of the cleanest and most eco-friendly cities in the world. Vikings settled here in 870 AD, and today Reykjavik is home to endless charms, watched over by the majestic Esja mountain range. You will see the city's highlights up close, including the charming cathedral. And admire the cityscape from the Perlan, a hilltop, glass-domed landmark offering spectacular city views. Alternately, you may venture farther afield to take in the country's breathtaking natural beauty, from towering waterfalls and soaring mountains to blue thermal springs.

    Day 7 - Cruise the Irminger Sea


    Cruise coastal Greenland today, taking in the splendid views from your ship. During your day at sea, you might indulge in a massage or facial or take a sauna in The Spa. Find your inner calm with yoga on the Sports Deck. Tonight, try some food and wine pairings at The Chef's Table.

    Day 8 - Nanortalik, Greenland


    Take in the natural beauty of Nanortalik. This "place of the polar bears," as its name translates, is spread over a small island in a splendid setting on the shores of the Labrador Sea. Like in much of Greenland, the lack of trees here lends a stark and pristine beauty. You will learn about the city's seafaring history, rich culture and colorful customs during your stay, visiting the open air Nanortalik Museum to learn how Vikings were among the first, and the Inuit among the last, to settle here.

    Due to the remote nature of this destination, organized excursions will not be offered in Nanortalik."

    Day 9 - Qaqortoq, Greenland


    Visit the small village of Qaqortoq today, located within its namesake fjord. This simple seaside town relies on fishing, fur production and ship repair and also has a brisk local arts scene, as you will see in its 30 "Stone and Man" sculptures in town. Your self-guided walking tour leads you along inviting streets lined with Inuit stone-and-peat houses, the 1832 Old Church and the Mindebronden fountain.

    Due to the remote nature of this destination, organized excursions will not be offered in Qaqortoq.

    Day 10 - Cruise the Labrador Sea


    Trace the route of Leif Eriksson today as you sail from Greenland to Canada. Perhaps you will swim in the Infinity Pool or mingle with newfound friends over tea in the Wintergarden. This evening, enjoy soft piano music in the Living Room or lively jazz in Torshavn.

    Day 11 - L'Anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland, Canada


    Step back 500 years before the days of Columbus, to the late 10th century, when Viking Leif Eriksson led the first European landing on American soil at L'Anse aux Meadows, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The archaeological site's beautiful seaside setting on the northernmost tip of Newfoundland boasts millennium-old remains, including a Viking sod longhouse. You will explore village reconstruction or, if you prefer, follow Newfoundland's scenic coastline and view marine animals in their natural habitat.

    Day 12 - Cruise the Gulf of St. Lawrence


    Today you will make your way toward the St. Lawrence River via the Gulf of St. Lawrence. As you sail, you might attend an illuminating enrichment lecture in the theater. This evening, enjoy cocktails in the Explorers' Lounge.

    Day 13 - Saguenay, Quebec, Canada


    Discover the history of Saguenay today, a once-disparate region of boroughs established as one city as recently as 2002. Built on a rich fur-trading and timber industry, it is a quintessential Quebecois town proud of its rural roots. You can witness the story of its growth during a lively stage show created specifically for English-speaking visitors, with privileged backstage access. Alternately, you can head into the countryside to visit two family businesses that embody the region's French heritage with their cheese and wine production.

    Day 14 - Quebec City, Quebec, Canada


    Visit the grand dame of Quebec province today, the venerable Quebec City, a European-style gem on the banks of the St. Lawrence River. As you explore its cobblestone streets, you will take in its decidedly regal air, crowned by the magnificent Chateau Frontenac. You will see the Place Royale, the Upper and Lower Old Towns lined with distinctive white stone buildings dating to the early 17th century, and the Parliament. Or discover the province's natural beauty at Montmorency Falls and Sainte-Anne Canyon.

    Day 15 - Montreal, Quebec, Canada


    Awake in Montreal this morning and bid your ship adieu. Explore the city on your own before returning home, or perhaps extend your stay here with Viking.
