Take the chance to enhance your Hurtigruten journey with an overnight in the `finest city in America´.

Stay the night at a centrally located hotel in San Diego Gaslamp district, leaving the rest of the day at your leisure.

If you want a taste of authentic Mexican food, you are in the right place. Stroll through the Old Town area on your own and find the perfect restaurant.

Start the day with breakfast at your hotel before your four-hour guided city tour begins.

Enjoy the Cabrillo National Monument, which is located at the southern tip of the Point Loma Peninsula in San Diego. The park offers a beautiful view of San Diego's harbour and skyline. On clear days, you will enjoy a wide expanse of the Pacific Ocean.

Next, you’re on your way to visit Old Town, the historic heart of San Diego and the first settlement of California, created in 1769 as a fort. Wander through lush gardens or browse at one of the many specialty shops for treasures from around the world. Year round, Old Town is the best spot for food, folklore, and fun.

The tour shows you highlights of San Diego like Petco Park, the San Diego Convention Center, the Santa Fe Depot and the waterfront Embarcadero. At the end of your tour, we will return to the Gaslamp District, to experience this lively neighbourhood by daylight. You'll discover eclectic galleries, chic boutiques, rooftop bars and craft beer haunts.
