About this Cruise
Follow in the wake of ancient seafarers on a voyage from Norway’s spectacular coast to the far-flung archipelagos of Scotland. Experience the majesty of the Norwegian fjords by train and cable car, encountering glaciers, traditional fishing villages, and breathtaking vistas. Then sail to the Shetland and Orkney Islands to explore prehistoric sites and the legacy of the Vikings, and observe vast colonies of breeding seabirds. Round Scotland’s northern coast and spend a magical day learning local legends on the mystical Isle of Skye and end your journey amid the grandeur of the Scottish Highlands.
Norwegian Fjords and Glaciers: Take in spectacular scenery while cruising through Sognefjord—Norway's longest fjord— and embark on a thrilling train journey aboard the Flåm Railway. Cruise deeper into the fjords and set out from the village of Olden to encounter continental Europe’s largest ice cap, exploring the edge of a glacier or riding a cable car for a panoramic view of the ice.
Shetland Islands: At the crossroads where Scotland meets Scandinavia, discover the extraordinary settlement of Jarlshof, inhabited for 5,000 years; trace history and local culture on an in-depth tour of Lerwick; or go hiking on the Island of Mousa to encounter seabirds and marine life.
Orkney Islands: Visit the settlement of Skara Brae, and see the Neolithic Stones of Stenness and the Ring of Brodgar. Then visit lively Kirkwall to see its Viking-built cathedral.
Isle of Skye and Scottish Highlands: Visit Eilean Donan Castle and Armadale Castle; or spend the day discovering the rugged Isle of Skye from the Trotternish Peninsula to Dunvegan Castle. From Fort William, head into the Scottish Highlands on a scenic drive, tour Fort Augustus, and enjoy a cruise on the infamous—and beautiful—Loch Ness.
