A Nordic Cruise

By HarryTuesday 25th February 2014

Northern Europe and the North Atlantic offer a relaxing, scenic backdrop for those in need of a break with a difference. With vintage theme parks hidden within beautiful Danish forests, and the entrancing Northern Lights to look forward to, a Nordic Cruise is a family holiday everyone is bound to cherish. To give you a taster, here are 3 of the fantastic ports of call you can enjoy during your next cruise.

Reykjavik, Iceland

Image and video hosting by TinyPic One of our favourite ports of call during a Nordic cruise is the enchanting Icelandic city of Reykjavik.  Rich with colourful buildings, beautiful views and filled with fascinating culture, Reykjavik is a great place to holiday with your family. For a fun day out, head to Skemmtigardurinn, a huge two level family amusement park. On the lower level your kids can whizz round on the 360°dance party ride, or bang and crash into their new friends in a bumper cars race. On the upper floor, there’s a funfair for the kids, where your whole family can enjoy a game of laser tag or have fun in the arcade. If you’re looking forward to a little R&R then take the family to Laugardalslaug, Reykjavik’s largest pool. Unwind in an Icelandic ‘hot pot’, as your kids splash around in the pools and rush down the two impressive water slides.

Copenhagen, Denmark

From The Little Mermaid statue on the Langelinie promenade to the Viking Ship museum, Copenhagen is a city full of amazing things to see and do. To discover a piece of Danish history, explore Royal Copenhagen at Amalienborg Palace, and walk around this amazing example of Danish royal architecture. Christian VII’s and Christian VIII’s palaces are open to the public, which include an interesting and interactive museum. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for the Danish Royal Guards who march through the streets of Copenhagen daily.

Surrounded by delightful Danish countryside and the enchanting Dyrehaven forest, your whole family will be able to play games in the arcade and brave the speeding roller coasters. There are even some slower and calmer rides for the younger kids.

Alesund, Norway

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Alesund is surrounded by beautiful fjords and mountains, and is a great place to enjoy views of the Northern Lights as they dance over Alesund’s harbour. As well as its picturesque views, it’s a city bursting with sights and things to do, so your family is sure to never be bored. Take a trip to the Atlanterhavsparken, Alesund’s aquarium, where divers swim into giant tanks and hand feed tropical fish.  During the weekends, kids can get involved too, feeding the fish that live in the open pools. On top of all this, outside the aquarium there’s a penguin park where you can watch them eat at 2:30pm every day. Dine at the restaurants that line the harbour; they offer an abundance of delicious and fresh seafood dishes. A popular delicacy amongst locals is the traditional favourite of Klipfish, a split, salted and dried cod. It’s so well liked that there’s even a Klipfish museum in Kristiansund, another port you may call at during a Nordic Cruise.
