In the Wake of the Vikings Aboard Le Boreal

May 28 - June 5, 2015

On this tour you will visit Bergen,one of the most beautiful of the Scandinavian Hanseatic cities where the silhouettes of gabled houses represent one of the enduring images of medieval Norway. Then there are the majestic Norwegian fjords where the sheer beauty of their vast rivers of silvery-blue ice offers a truly unique spectacle. The image of Le Boreal amidst the grandeur of the fjords will remain with you forever as will the nowcaped mountains that are reflected in the brilliant green waters
