  • Cruise the Elbe River

    Discover the natural beauty of former East Germany’s dramatic landscape on an Elbe River cruise. Witness the opulence of Saxon monarchs as you stroll through their palaces and gardens; sail between the sandstone cliffs of Germany’s “Saxon Switzerland.” Bookend your journey with stays in multicultural Berlin and beautiful Prague.

    Norse Heritage

    Classical mythology has its cupid. In Nordic culture, it’s Astrild who sets hearts afire. The delicate lilt of her name first caressed the ears of literature lovers in the 17th century, when Swedish poet Georg Stiernhielm introduced her to northern Europe in his writing. She remains a fabled figure who spreads love, passion and affection. To get a sense of the beauty and love which Astrild inspires, one need only look to the estrildid finch. It’s fitting that this tiny bird from which Stiernhielm got Astrild’s name remains devoted to the same partner for life.
