WONDERS OF THE NORTH
The Baltic Sea and Scandinavia are alive with vibrant landscapes to explore. Sail past Norway's majestic fjords, witness the Northern Lights for yourself, or seek out hidden waterfalls in Estonia.
NATURAL NIGHT LIGHT
You might get the chance to see wisps of green, yellow, red and violet above the horizon during your vacation. The stunning Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, are a once-in-a-lifetime experience that every admirer of nature should get to see.
Put on your walking shoes and go hiking around one of the port cities and admire the wild landscape of the North. Trek through part of Norway's Discovery Route, which runs from Stavanger to Bergen, and see snow-capped mountains towering over pristine fjords and thunderous waterfalls.
NEW TAKES ON CUISINE
The high-end gourmet New Nordic cuisine has become a hit in recent years, starting with a culinary revolution in Copenhagen with young, forward-thinking chefs serving deconstructed takes on traditional tastes and indigenous ingredients. Whether you go high-brow or traditional, Northern European food is sure to comfort and delight.
CATCH A COLD-WATER FISH
High-quality fish from the cold waters of the Arctic and Baltic Seas are integral to the region's cuisine. The most popular type of fish is herring, which is served in soups and fillets. Don't miss the chance to try a delicious haddock soup, with a creamy broth and plenty of hearty leeks and potatoes.
CURED FOR HUNGER
For a tasty lunch in Denmark, you won't have to look far to get a smorrebrod, an open-face sandwich served on one slice of bread rather than two. Sink your teeth into dark-brown, hearty rye bread with savory slices of cured ham or smoked salmon, with horseradish for an added kick.
Enjoy one of the many Scandinavian pastries or desserts: Try Sweden's gooey chocolate cake kladdkaka and the Norwegian cinnamon bun kanelboller. Keep an eye out for ice cream flavored with cloudberries, a local wild berry with a slightly tart bite and a floral sweetness.
