Denmark offers a smorgasbord of Dutch treats, which you can sample on a Holland America Line cruise. Join a pub crawl through the cobblestoned streets of Copenhagen, walk along the ramparts of Fredericia’s Old Town, and escape to Legoland near Arhus. Ronne charms with its cross-timbered houses and church of St. Nicolai, patron saint of seafarers, while the Skagen Art Museum provides inspiration to paint your own masterpiece — which is then framed and delivered to your Holland America Line ship.

Cruising Magdalenafjord

Flanked by soaring peaks and dramatic glaciers, Magdalenafjord is the most popular anchorage point along the west coast of Spitsbergen, part of Norway’s Svalbard Archipelago bordering the Arctic Ocean. Despite the fjord’s remote location, its dramatic scenery attracts some 20,000 visitors annually. Gravneset Peninsula on the fjord’s southern side is the main landing site, with its stunning beach and a sheltered bay known as Trinity Haven. Today, most visitors come to admire the marine life. In addition to fin, humpback and rare Greenland right whales, little auks can be spotted on the shore, along with other bird species including arctic terns, skuas, barnacle geese and eider ducks.

Scenic Cruising Limfjord

Gliding through the peaceful waters of the Limfjord in northern Denmark, you'll see green valleys, picturesque islands and harbors and dramatic coastal cliffs. The Limfjord, a shallow part of the North Sea, is considered a fjord in the Norwegian sense of the word (\"fjord\" can refer to a wide range of waterways). It is not technically a fjord in the geological sense, though, because it has inlets from both the North Sea and Kattegat and separates North Jutlandic Island from the rest of the Jutland Peninsula. The main port of the Limfjord is Ålborg, where a railway bridge crosses the fjord.
