Europe & Scandinavia Cruises

River gems & Arctic wonders

Cruise holidays to Europe & Scandinavia

Introduction

European cruise holidays offer a whole range of unique experiences, from exploring the storied waters of its river greats to remote adventures among the icy wonders of Scandinavia and the Arctic.

Indeed, the Continent is host to some of the world’s greatest river cruises. In between city icons and stunning rural beauty, you’ll sweep east on the Danube, showcase France’s medieval history on the Rhône and combine the rustic villages and grand cities of Germany and the Netherlands on the Rhine.

Then, in Scandinavia, a rich seafaring tradition spans from the Vikings to the great polar explorers of the 19th century. And, its cragged Atlantic coast is just as wild today as when Erik the Red set sail to settle Greenland over one thousand years ago. Giant swells still beat against coastal mountains, routes weave between island jags and colossal glaciers ooze down millennia-old valleys. Then, as you strike north, taking in quaint fishing villages and historic cathedral cities alike, you’ll cross over into the Arctic Circle. A true frontier land, everything from dogsledding trips to snowmobile excursions play out under the mystical dance of the Northern Lights.

However, winter doesn’t get all the fun. If you sail in the summer, you’ll be treated to the geological drama of Norway’s fjords, with routes plunging through giant, glacier-carved inlets towered over by kilometre-high cliffs. It’s all lit iridescent by the Midnight Sun. And, in the Baltic, there's the chance to sail between the cities of Stockholm, Helsinki and Tallinn, even heading into Russia to explore the architectural wonders of St Petersburg. The options are almost endless.


With so many options available across the Continent, it's best to speak to the experts. Our cruise specialists are on hand seven days a week to answer your questions and provide up-to-the-minute insight into the world of cruising.
