The Scandinavian idea of “Nyde” means the slow and beautiful enjoyment of life. Explora Journeys embrace this concept with adventures that take you ever deeper in to the majesty and immersive landscapes of the Nordics. Take in the power of nature on a scale you never knew existed – narrow plunging fjords, snow-capped mountain stairways and ice glaciers deep in the Arctic Circle.
To the traveller, the urge to cross the Arctic Circle is almost as strong as the North Pole itself. For this reason, the guests can extend or combine our journeys and explore further into the majesty and immersive landscapes of Norway, its endless fjords and the Arctic Circle.
Southampton to Tromsø, 12 nights 11 – 23 July 2023
We traverse into some of the narrowest fjords of Norway and chart a course beyond the magical latitude of 66° 33’: the ephemeral boundary of the Arctic Circle, above which the sun never sets. Let this journey carry you into the mystique, rugged nature and endless wonder of Norway and its glistening fjords.
Tromsø to Copenhagen, 9 nights 23 July – 1 August 2023
Fall in love with mesmerising landscapes that were allegedly created by mischievous trolls – historic fjords that climb to dizzying heights and craggy mountain islands jutting out of the Arctic Ocean. We find some of the world’s best scenery in the pocket-sized paradise of Lofoten, Sognefjord and Flåm.
Copenhagen to Hamburg, 6 nights 15 – 21 August 2023
Our exploration starts in Copenhagen and Göteborg, both of which share titles as two of the world’s greenest cities, then to Norway’s crown city of Oslo. Glide awestruck alongside the Hegjane Waterfall, then discover a mountain stairway, created by Nepalese sherpas, to Preikestolen for soul-enriching cliff-views.
Each of our 461 ocean-front suites, penthouses and residences – all designed with a refined, European elegance to be ‘Homes at Sea’ for our guests – are created to bring guests closer to the ocean itself, with floor-to-ceiling windows and private sun terraces.
The gastronomic and beverage riches aboard Explora Journeys take their influences from across the globe, bringing personality, sophistication, and a dash of soul to the culinary and beverage experience at sea.
