Transfer from the airport to the Hotel Phoenix Copenhagen for a one night's stay. The following day join an excursion to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. Enjoy lunch before returning to Copenhagen to embark Le Dumont D’Urville in late afternoon.

Day 1: Copenhagen

You will be met at the airport and transferred to the Hotel Phoenix Copenhagen in “Bredgade” – a part of the city known for high profile galleries and restaurants and within walking distance of the royal castle Amalienborg. The afternoon is yours free to explore the city. In the evening enjoy a Welcome Reception at historic Odd Fellows Hall, where Till-Holger Borchert and our Tour Manager will introduce you to the program ahead.

Day 2: Copenhagen

After breakfast at the hotel, travel about 20 miles north to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. Founded in 1958, Louisiana has evolved into one of the premier museums of modern art in the world. Enjoy lunch before returning to Copenhagen to embark Le Dumont D’Urville late afternoon.

Day 3: Sailing the Kiel Canal

Spanning around one hundred kilometres, the Kiel Canal links the North Sea to the Baltic Sea, crossing the Jutland peninsula. It is the world’s busiest artificial waterway.

Day 4: Harlingen

Once a whale fishing centre, the city has transformed into a modern city which also offers travellers museums and sites of interest. The local museum, the Hannemahuis, is housed in an 18th Century dwelling and presents a collection of regional furniture and objects retracing the history of the city. The lighthouse and the city hall with their typically Dutch architecture also deserve a visit.

Days 5-6: Amsterdam

Spend two days exploring the colourful city of Amsterdam. Let yourself fall in love with the grace and romanticism that emanates from this charming city. Known around the world for its museums and the finest collection of the Dutch and Flemish masters of the golden age, this city is home to many other treasures. On your first evening in Amsterdam, attend a private, after-hours tour and reception at the recently expanded and renovated Stedelijk Museum, devoted to modern and contemporary art and design. In small groups led by museum staff, explore the core of the collection and enjoy a reception produced by one of Amsterdam’s premiere caterers.

Day 7: Antwerp

In this moderately-sized, cosmopolitan city, you will be able to stroll around the ancient city centre, dominated by the most important monument in Antwerp, the Notre-Dame Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The museums of the city retrace the history of Antwerp, including the home of Rubens, containing the works of the painter, and the Plantin-Moretus museum, a print works and publishing house that are UNESCO listed.

Day 8: Ostend

Located on the Flemish coastline, half way between France and the Netherlands, the elegant city of Ostend is a favourite summer destination for Belgians. You can enjoy the “queen of beaches”, a stretch of fine white sand punctuated by breakwaters, covered by the North Sea at high tide. The seafront boasts sumptuous facades from the Belle Epoque, such as Villa Maritza, which stands witness to this seaside town’s rich past. Art amateurs will enjoy the excellent Kunstmuseumaan Zee, where a retrospective of Belgian art dating from 1830 is on display.

Day 9: Honfleur

Your voyage ends in Honfleur where you will disembark the ship and transfer to the airport in Paris.
