Sail to Scandinavian and Scottish cities on a midsummer voyage aboard a beloved three-masted barque.

At midsummer, sail to Scandinavian and Scottish cities, with their marvelous mix of medieval and modern. Explore the canals and lively streets of Copenhagen, then embark the elegant Sea Cloud II for a 10-night cruise. Call in Norway at Oslo and Stavanger, to stroll in their picturesque old towns, and dock overnight in Bergen. Enjoy a private recital at the summer villa of Edvard Grieg and a director's tour of the Arboretum and Botanical Garden at Milde, home to Norway's largest collection of roses. Spot ponies and puffins in Scotland's Shetland Islands and in the Orkney Islands, step ashore at Kirkwall to explore the famed standing stones and prehistoric villages the Vikings left behind. Conclude with a day in the lively university city of Aberdeen, to visit 16th-century Crathes Castle, with its remarkable gardens, and the fascinating Maritime Museum. Disembark in Edinburgh.

Optional prelude in Copenhagen and optional postlude in Edinburgh.
