Featuring Douglas Knight, Drucilla Moore Buffington Professor Emeritus of Hebrew Bible and Professor Emeritus of Jewish Studies.

Beginning above the Arctic Circle and ending on the shores of the Netherlands, this voyage highlights the stunning beauty and rich history of the North Sea. From Tromso in the land of the midnight sun, sail south along the Norwegian coast, exploring the country's fabled fjords, including Geirangerfjord, perhaps the most beautiful of them all. Crossing the sea to Scotland, marvel at the well-preserved Neolithic sites of the Orkney Islands before spending two days in the great city of Edinburgh and the nearby highlands. From Newcastle, England, travel to Hadrian's Wall, the northernmost outpost of the Roman Empire, before ending in Holland, with visits to the charming town of Delft and the Hague, home of the International Court of Justice.
