Harstad, Norway
Harstad, the pearl of northern Norway, is a beautiful town on the island of Hinnoya surrounded by snowcapped mountains. In summertime, visitors flock to see the midnight sun, a phenomenon where the sun doesn’t sink below the horizon for months at a time. The northern lights make frequent appearances in winter, setting the sky alight with dancing colors. While docked here, guests can tour the 13th-century Trondenes Church, learn about the area’s Viking lore, witness remnants of WWII, hop in a kayak or go for a stroll along streets surrounded by terraces, peaks and brightly colored wooden homes. Get an up-close look into the 1200s at the Trondenes Middle Ages visitor park, where characters act out life on a medieval farm; or glimpse bears, wolves, reindeer and other animals at the nearby Arctic Wildlife Centre Polar Park, the northernmost animal park in the world.
