Sails from Dover

On this short, yet enriching sailing, visits to three distinctive cities, in three different countries, provide opportunities to discover a plethora of Scandinavia’s great artistic, historic and cultural highlights. Oslo’s renowned aesthetic delights; The Vigeland Sculpture Park, displaying over 200 works from Gustav Vigeland, the National Gallery, home of Edvard Munch’s The Scream, and the Opera House are high on the city’s must-see list. The Akershus Fortress is also well worth a visit, for an insight into Oslo’s medieval heritage. En route to the Norwegian capital, you’ll also be part of a momentous sailing past the Olsen family home on the Oslofjord.

In Sweden, the attractions of Gothenburg await you; among the best are Maritiman – the world’s largest floating ship museum, Götaplatsen Square, and the Volvo Museum, exhibiting machinery from one of the most important companies. A cruise of the city’s scenic canals aboard a traditional ‘Paddan’ boat is highly recommended. Finally, Copenhagen is yours to explore. Here you’ll find highlights such as the famous Little Mermaid statue and colourful Nyhavn waterfront district just a short distance from your ship’s gangway. Venture further for an insight into Denmark’s Royal heritage at the Amalienborg and Christiansborg palaces; or perhaps delight in the charms of the legendary Tivoli Gardens amusement park.

Cruising by the Olsen Family Home &  Oslofjord

Sailing the length of the 100 Kilometre-long Oslofjord, your smaller ship’s route to Oslo, offers you a chance to admire the waterway’s wonderful scenery on a cruise taking in Norway’s fantastic capital city.  As you sail the glassy waters of Oslofjord on board your smaller-sized ship, you can catch a glimpse of Lysedal Mansion – the historic home of the Olsen family – situated amongst the picturesque scenery of Hvitsten, a charming village synonymous with our company’s founders.

Oslo, Norway

Oslo, the capital and largest city of Norway, is one of Scandinavia’s most historic, interesting and welcoming destinations. Surrounded by mountains and its own fjord, this compact and cultured city is both easy and fun to explore on foot. Exploring one of Oslo’s many museums, uncovering its booming art scene at any number of its commercial galleries or simply marvelling at the extraordinary architecture that fills the skyline are all highlights of this fine city. The fabulous Viking Ship Museum has three ships recovered from royal burial mounds in the Oslofjord, while the medieval Akershus Castle that dominates the harbour front is well worth visiting. Vigelandsparken Sculpture Park – one of Oslo’s must-visit attractions, is a Norwegian institution and home to more than 200 bronze, granite and wrought iron sculptures from Gustav Vigeland.

Gothenburg, Sweden

Gothenburg, or as it’s known in Sweden, Göteborg, is the country’s second city, yet very different in character to its faraway big brother, Stockholm. Equidistant between Copenhagen and Oslo on Sweden’s western coast, Gothenburg, was long viewed as a port city in a slow decline. However, locals saw the potential. Neighbourhoods across the city started to become creative hubs — in music, art, design, dining — and sparked a renaissance that spread from one district to another.


Sunday 25 September 2022

Copenhagen, Denmark

With its vibrant atmosphere, modern culture and beautiful architecture, Copenhagen is the essence of Scandinavian cool. One of Europe’s oldest and most popular cities, Copenhagen is also one of the cleanest and most cosmopolitan. Its narrow streets are always busy with welcoming locals and are lined with colourful cafes, bars, shops and places to eat. Its bridges ring with cycling commuters and the pristine waterways make visiting this city a wonderful experience.
