Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark, and its port is within walking distance of the famous statue of the Little Mermaid. Copenhagen is a picturesque city which combines traditional Danish copper-roofed buildings with cutting-edge modern architecture.

The old Hanseatic port of Bergen is within walking distance of the city centre and the famous Bryggen, the World Heritage listed waterfront area of gabled traditional buildings which dates back 900 years. The outdoor fish market is one of Bergen's popular tourist attractions, along with the Floibanen, the funicular which travels up Mount Floyen close to Skomadkerdiket Lake for views of the city and the sea.
5 - Tuesday 19 June Trondheim (Norway) 1300 2359
Trondheim is an attractive city partly encircled by the River Nid and was once the capital of Norway. Its waterfront is bordered by brightly-painted wharves and the old town bridge leads to the lively Bakklandet neighbourhood where there are numerous wooden houses, shops and cafes. The town's chief sight is the ancient cathedral of Nidaros which was built in the 11th century over the burial site of St Olav.
6 - Wednesday 20 June Day At Sea
7 - Thursday 21 June Svolvaer (Lofoten Islands, Norway) 0800 1600
Svolvaer is the main port and capital of the Lofoten Islands, and its harbour is idyllically set below a ring of mountains. It's renowned for the special qualities of its natural light which attracts painters and sculptors to the town, built across small islets connected by bridges. For such a small town, there are plenty of shops, restaurants and good public transport links to smaller towns nearby.
8 - Friday 22 June Harstad (Norway) 0800 1300
Harstad is an important port with a natural, sheltered harbour surrounded by an archipelago of small islands. Apart from its fjords and mountains, Harstad's attractions include the underground Grottebadet, a cave complex of Jacuzzi, pools, caf' and sauna, and on the Trondenes Peninsula, the Adolf Gun from World War II and 13th-century Trondenes Church. Harstad is also the base for the 1868 schooner, Anna Rogde.
9 - Saturday 23 June Honningsvag (North Cape) 0800 2100
9 - Saturday 23 June Cruising North Cape
10 - Sunday 24 June Hammerfest (Norway) 0800 1800
Hammerfest, the world's most northerly town, is at the same latitude as northern Siberia, but largely ice-free thanks to the Gulf Stream. The fur trade and international trade with neighbouring Russia brought prosperity, as did the growing fish processing industry. Its strategic position made it the ideal base for Germany's fleet during World War II. Visit the amusingly named Polar Bear Club for a taste of Arctic natural history.
11 - Monday 25 June Tromso (Norway) 0800 1800
Tromso is the capital of the Arctic, and has been the starting point for many Polar expeditions. In the waterfront Polar Museum there are exhibits related to these and the history of hunting and trapping in the Polar region. There are shops, cafes, the stunning stained glass Arctic Cathedral and the world's most northerly botanic garden in the town, which benefits from the Gulf Stream.
12 - Tuesday 26 June Day At Sea
13 - Wednesday 27 June Alesund (Norway) 0800 1800
Alesund is built across three islands and uniquely for Norway, is an Art Nouveau town, rebuilt in this style after a devastating fire in 1904. The KUBE Art Museum is housed in the former premises of the Norwegian Bank, and upmarket shops line Apotekergata. For good views of the islands, hills and coast, take the steps from Alesund's park up to Mount Aksla. Worthy of a visit is the magnificent 12th-century Borgund Stave Church in Laerdal.
14 - Thursday 28 June Olden (Norway) 0700 1400
The village of Olden has a spectacular position at the head of Nordfjord, with steep mountains on either side. Cruise ships dock at the quay a ten-minute walk away from the town, mainly for visits to the Briksdal Glacier. Two-wheeled horse-drawn carts known as 'Troll Cars' take visitors through the scenic Olden Valley and nearby is the impressive 984-foot Volefossen waterfall. In Loen just outside Olden are some of the many Viking burial mounds found in Nordfjord.
