This in-depth appreciation of Scandinavia sees you explore some of its most picturesque coastal destinations on the luxurious Silver Dawn. Bookending your journey in stylish Copenhagen, highlights include stops at laid-back Gothenburg, Norway's fjord-framed villages, the remote Lofoten Islands and, of course, the North Cape – the glacier-dotted, northernmost point of mainland Europe in the Arctic Circle. Expect included excursions throughout, from guided city tours and ultra-scenic drives to RIB boat safaris, fjord kayaks, iconic railway journeys and summertime husky sledding under the Midnight Sun. Alongside it all, you'll be treated to only the finest in Silversea luxury. Think open-seated dining and eight dining venues – including the superb Sea and Land Taste (S.A.L.T.) programme that offers local cuisine and insights into local food culture – alongside all inclusive-drinks, butler-served suites with private verandas and some of the best hospitality in cruising, with almost one crew member per guest.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
UK to Copenhagen

Begin your trip in style with included VIP airport lounge access before your flight to Copenhagen. After a few hours to explore the stylish capital, from the historic Tivoli gardens to Hans Christian Andersen’s famed Little Mermaid sculpture, take your included transfer to the port to board the ultra-luxury Silver Dawn. Check in to your sumptuous suite with its own private veranda and butler before settling in for a sundowner at the Panorama Lounge alongside wonderful sea views. You’ve then got the choice of eight dining venues – all offering open seating – as well as the S.A.L.T. programme that offers excellent local cuisine.

Day 2
Gothenburg

After breakfast you've got a full day to explore Gothenburg, whether you want to fika in the charming Haga district or explore the idyllic rocky shores of the Bohuslän Coast. The latter is home to the famous West Coast islands with their fishing villages and harbour-side seafood cafes or, if you'd rather stay in the city, scenic self-drives and guided walks are on offer to introduce you to Gothenburg's most famous gems, from the Poseidon Fountain and Museum of Fine Arts to the Municipal Theatre, Grand Boulevard of Gothenburg and the Feskekôrka Fish Market. The Gota canal is in close proximity, too, best explored with a cruise or Paddan boat ride as you meander past ancient moats, traditional shipyards and the Maritime Museum. At each port, there’s also the option to hire a private car or van and guide for a half or full day tour – it's a wonderful way to create your own bespoke itinerary in complete comfort. Remember, all excursions are included and can be organised directly from the ship.

Stay: Silver Dawn

Explore all the ship has to offer today, from relaxing on the pool deck and luxurious treatments at the Zagara Spa to thrilling nights at the casino. Tonight, if you haven't already, be sure to head to the ship's S.A.L.T bar for locally-inspired cocktails and drinks as well as the S.A.L.T lab, where you can get involved in local workshops and cooking demonstrations.

Bergen

Anchor in to beautiful Bergen today, the gateway to Norway's famed western fjords. Here, between its historic wharf and vibrant markets, you'll discover a city as charming as it is picturesque. Explore with a guided walking tour that explores the Hanseatic wooden pier, fish markets, King Håkon's Hall and the Rosenkrantz Tower. Scenic drives and seaplane journeys are also on offer for the perfect introduction to the fjords for which this area is so famed. Alternatively, there's the chance to explore the city with an ultra-scenic drive and a visit to Magic Ice, home to ice sculptures inspired by famous works by Norwegian and international artists such as Edvard Grieg.

Leknes, Vestvågøy

The Lofoten Islands are your next stop, a dramatic Arctic landscape of soaring mountains, deep blue fjords and long, surf-swept beaches.

There's also the chance to visit Lofoten's famous local artists and glassblowers, explore the Viking Museum, go horse riding and even – at an additional cost – the chance to spot sea eagles on a RIB safari and view the islands from above on a VIP helicopter ride.

Day 8
Honningsvåg, North Cape

Sail to the northernmost point of mainland Europe today – situated inside the Arctic Circle, it's sure to be a true trip highlight. The true land of the Midnight Sun, the 24-hour sunlight means you've got endless hours to explore. In the morning, perhaps discover Magerøy Island's fishing villages and famous globe sculpture before exploring the North Cape Hall that overlooks the Barents Sea hundreds of feet below. Later, explore the North Cape Plateau, a steep slab of rock more than 1,000 feet above sea level, spotting reindeer, puffins and whales along the way, as well as the chance to explore the area's fjord-framed fishing villages, sample ultra fresh king crab on a RIB boat safari or head on an ATV adventure across the Arctic tundra.

Day 9
Tromso

After breakfast, anchor in to what's often known as the Northern Lights capital of the world, Tromso. In summer it's just as magical, with chances to hike the coastal mountains, kayak inland rivers or among skerries in the Norwegian Sea, and even fish for cod, halibut and salmon, all enjoyed beneath the dazzling beauty of the Midnight Sun. Ultra-scenic drives offer the chance to pause at the 19th-century Polar Museum and Arctic cathedral before heading to the city's cable car to ascend to 1350 feet above sea level to the top of Mount Storsteinen, offering breathtaking panoramic views of the city and fjords below. We'd also highly recommend booking on to a summertime husky hike or RIB boat coastal adventure to nearby Sommarøy Island, home to ancient fishing villages and white-sand beaches.

Day 11
Alesund

Sail to the port city of Alesund today, home to Norway's largest cod-fishing fleet and noted for its concentration of Art Nouveau buildings and proximity to the rugged, beautiful western fjords. Everything from guided walking tours among the decorative turrets and pastel-coloured buildings to ultra-scenic, mountain-valley drives are on offer to introduce you to this beautiful city that's all home to the one of Norway's most impressive fjords, the World Heritage-listed Geirangerfjord. Alternatively, opt for a boat ride to the unique islands of Giske and Godøy, Viking-era islands home to 12th-century churches, tiny fishing villages and ancient lighthouses. If time allows, we'd also highly recommend finishing off the day with a visit to the area's famed Troll Brewery to sample some local ales.

Stay: Silver Dawn
