"What To Do In Kristiansand"
Visit Current to learn about Kristiansand, Norway. A great walking city, it's small enough to cover in an afternoon, but big enough to offer food and culture on par with the world’s biggest cities.
The northern hemisphere's annual sunward tilt signals a celebration in Scandinavia's modern capitals and picturesque towns. Restaurants in Stockholm set tables on the sidewalks. At lunchtime, Danish workers bask on park benches, faces turned to the sun. It is a wonderful time to visit as parks and gardens in Oslo and Helsinki come to life with brilliant flowers and the sounds of children playing. In St. Petersburg, descend an elegant staircase between sparkling, gilded fountains at the extravagant riverside Summer Palace. Relax by the pool as your ship eases gracefully between towering granite cliffs in Norway's narrow Trollfjord. There's no lovelier season than a Scandinavian summer, and no better way to experience it than on board Seabourn.
