We are actively monitoring the discussions in Congress over federal funding, and the potential impact on our tours visiting Federal Sites & National Parks across the United States.

Without an agreement between the House, Senate and White House, the government will shut down on Saturday September 30, 2023 at midnight. The impact to our Tours will be limited to those visiting some Federal Sites & National Parks across the country. Some states including Utah, Arizona and Colorado have indicated that they will provide the necessary funding to keep the National Parks operating. Other states are considering similar measures.

If we are unable to operate or your tour is altered due to the government shutdown, we will contact you directly prior to departure.

Spectacular Scandinavia Bryggen Bergen Norway

Europe Is a Cornucopia of Nautical Delights for Maritime Buffs

…Tours and packages that visit a combination of European cities open up many possibilities for maritime fans. For example, Collette's 14-day, escorted “Spectacular Scandinavia” tour visits Copenhagen, Denmark; Granna, Vittaryd and Stockholm, Sweden; and Oslo, Flam, Loen, Geiranger and Bergen, Norway.

This 14-day, land-only offering is priced from $3,899 per person, double occupancy. On Day 3 in Copenhagen, tour goers will enjoy a city tour including views of pretty Nyhavn, a charming harbour dating from the 17th century; it's lined with colourful facades and cafes, the perfect spot to enjoy a snack with a lovely view. On Day 6 in Stockholm, there’s time to visit the Vasa Museum.

On Day 13 in Bergen, Norway, the big draw is an included guided walking tour of the city’s historic harbourfront, the Bryggen, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With many wooden buildings, narrow alleyways and the harbour just steps away, Bryggen (the Norwegian word for "dock") is a gorgeous spot and a visitor magnet.
