When you first encounter Norway’s Geiranger Fjord you’re certain to leave with the inexplicable sensation that you’ve just experienced something special – in fact, something quite beyond words. That’s what we mean when we talk of wonder, and you’ll have more than one such moment while exploring Scandinavia and Russia with us, whether it’s your first encounter with a herd of Norwegian reindeer, or waking up for the first time in Stockholm, one of the world’s finest cities. Cruising down the majestic Volga through the beautiful Russian heartland may leave you with the same lingering sense of amazement, as will witnessing the splendour of Peterhof’s Grand Palace in St. Petersburg. It’s impossible to tell exactly when that feeling will strike. All we know is that it will.
