For those who seek the rare and uncompromising, the champagne-studded Maiden Journey will put you in a rare state of bliss. Southampton sets us sailing to the cozy canal-lined hamlet of Bruges before you chart a course beyond the ephemeral boundary of the Arctic Circle.
The spirit yearns when the sea beckons you to Hellesylt and Geiranger where inlets, cliffs, and waterfalls tumble in shards of silver to dissolve into a rainbow mist. You see craggy cliffs jutting like dragons out of tranquil fjords and legendary landscapes allegedly created by mischievous trolls.
Find some of the world’s best scenery in the pocket-sized paradise of Lofoten then follow the wake of Vikings into the Sognefjord to Flåm, Bergen then Stavanger which spoils with Lysefjord and epic hiking trails.
The uniqueness of light draws you to Skagen then onward to the cool Scandinavian mist of Copenhagen to stroll amongst the castles of North Zealand, a fittingly royal ending to a historic Maiden Journey.
Explora Journeys is the new luxury lifestyle travel brand launched by the MSC Group in Geneva, Switzerland with the ambition to redefine the luxury cruise category.
