From Big-City Bustle to Small-Town Charm (Northbound)
9 days with Hurtigruten Rating:
Day 1 Miami, USA: Latin Beats, Art-Deco Atmosphere
Our voyage starts in Miami´s colorful neighborhoods that range from South Beach to Little Havana. The architecture here includes the greatest collection of Art Deco buildings in the world. Before embarking on MS Fram, enjoy an overnight in this vibrant city to sample the tropical gardens, lively arts scene, and exceptional cuisine.
Day 2 At Sea: Lectures, Photo Courses, and Relaxing
The Expedition Team will begin their lecture program, covering a wide range of topics. The onboard photographer will also run small workshops teaching you the basics of expedition photography. Or, you can use the time just to relax and chat with your fellow explorers.
Day 3 Charleston, North Carolina: The Romantic South
Charleston is considered one of America’s greatest historic treasures. With cobblestone streets, an elegant French Quarter, the magnificent Battery promenade, and Waterfront Park, the city is an ideal size for strolling on foot or seeing from a horse-drawn carriage. Explore the city’s historic sites at your leisure or join one of our optional excursions.
Day 4 At Sea: Unwind with a View
A day at sea means you can join the lectures presented by the Expedition Team or spend time on deck or in the panorama lounge with fellow travelers. Enjoy a refreshing workout in our well-equipped fitness room with a panoramic ocean view or let your muscles relax in one of the outdoor hot tubs.
Days 5-6: New York City: The Big Apple
We sail into Manhattan, passing the Statue of Liberty. MS Fram will dock in New York overnight while you get a taste of the Big Apple. Marvel at the skyline, stroll through beautiful Central Park in full spring bloom, see one of the many Broadway shows, gaze at the city lights from atop the Empire State Building, or visit famed Times Square. New York has so much to offer it’s impossible to fit everything in in just two days, but it’s certainly great fun to try. Explore the city on your own or on one of our optional excursions.
Day 7 Provincetown, Massachusetts: On the Peninsula of Cape Cod
Visitors are drawn to this colorful town for the beautiful beaches, restaurants, and charming shops. Artists began frequenting Provincetown a century ago and it is one of the oldest continuous art colonies in the country. Nearby Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary attracts 17 species of whale, including humpbacks and rare North Atlantic right whales.
Day 8 Yarmouth, Nova Scotia: French, Fishing, and Forchu
Welcome to this historic town at the intersection of traditional Anglo-Scottish and Acadian French cultures. Situated in the world's largest lobster fishing grounds, Yarmouth boasts the largest fishing fleet in Atlantic Canada. View the grand sea captain homes built in 1850´s or enjoy the picturesque views and hiking trails at the Cape Forchu Lighthouse.
Day 9 Halifax, Canada: Vibrant Capital of Nova Scotia
Your journey ends in Halifax, which features red-brick heritage buildings, parks, the landmark Citadel Hill National Historic Site, top-quality museums, Alexander Keith’s original 1820 brewery, and a 2-mile seafront boardwalk. We definitely recommend spending an extra day or two here on a Post-program before you head back home.
