Midsummer in Scandinavia
Spend six relaxing days aboard glittering Magellan as you discover western Norway at its glorious best. Cruise deep into Norway’s pristine interior, along exquisite Hardangerfjord, with stops at pretty Eidfjord and prosperous Stavanger. Join Magellan as she sails from Newcastle, calling first at Dundee before crossing the North Sea. Cruise along Hardangerfjord to Eidfjord, which is nestled in a breath-taking location, where dense forests cling to towering mountain slopes high above crystal-clear waters. Continue south to medieval Stavanger, with its charming cobbled-stone old town, before crossing the North Sea, and returning to Newcastle.
