Avviker på 5:00 PM
Located on England's South Coast, Southampton is a city full of surprises. Home to one of the largest ports in Europe, the city has a lot to offer people passing through for the day.

Check out SeaCity Museum and learn about what it would have been like to set sail on the Titanic in 1912 — Southampton is where the historic ship left port. Or venture out and explore the Hampshire countryside: Iconic Stonehenge is just a one-hour drive away.

Prehistoric Adventure

Located just an hour from Southampton, Stonehenge is one of the most well-known prehistoric sites in all of Europe. Wander around the miraculous stone circle and transport yourself back in time when Neolithic engineers used only simple tools to build the huge monument — it's believed they hauled those massive stones over 240 miles from Wales without the use of machines.

Fra 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Oslo combines the modern and the historical into a heady stew of Scandinavian cool.

Fortified History

Construction of Akerhus Castle and Fortress began in 1299, and the structure has fended off a number of attacks since then. It's also been a royal residence and a prison, so there's a lot of history to take in. Don't miss the great views over the harbor while you're here.
Insider tip

Stroll With the Arts

Frogner Park is the largest sculpture park made by a single artist in the world, with over 200 sculptures of varying sizes rendered in iron, bronze and granite. The collection of sculptures in the park's middle section is particularly of note; only wander there if you're strong of heart, and don't bring the kiddos.

In Oslo, hearty traditional fare is as popular as hip international cuisine. The popular Grunerlokka neighborhood is the perfect place to grab a bite. For a taste of down-home Norway, seek out local cod, hake or herring served with local garnishes like pea puree and pickled red onions. With cruises to Oslo, you can head to an Indian spot for samosas and fried king prawns — the local bounty shows up in the international eats, too.
