After a pick up from the cruise pier we are headed on a scenic drive to the southernmost point of the tour, and the southernmost point of Norway, and then we will work our way backwards to Kristiansand.

Our destination is the Lindesnes Lighthouse, built in 1655, this is the oldest lighthouse in Norway. With a rich history, the lighthouse has been designated a national lighthouse museum. Here we will view the various exhibitions on display, all relating to maritime history and culture. Climb to the top, but don't forget your camera as the coastal views span as far as the eye can see. Before leaving you will get try a variety of Norwegian food specialties including bread made from seaweed and fishcake. We promise it tastes better than it sounds!

On our return drive we will stop at Mandal, a beautiful seaside village and a popular summer weekend destination.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
