As you cruise the waters of Wadden Sea, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed area for its biological diversity and vast numbers of migrating birds, watch for Esbjerg’s monumental ‘Man Meets the Sea’ sculpture. It’s a spectacular introduction to a North Sea harbor city brimming with museums celebrating local artists and the region’s maritime history. Hop on a ferry for delightful Fano, a sandy beach island where eagles and falcons soar and harbor seals frolic. In historic Ribe, Scandinavia’s oldest town, travel back to the Viking age in a remarkably authentic reconstruction of a medieval village buzzing with blacksmiths, minters, warriors – even a lady of the Longhouse.
