Our Cruise Itineraries
Scotland, Shetland Islands, Faroe Islands & Iceland
Setting sail from Scotland, cruise in comfort and style to Europe’s most remote and remarkable islands: Shetland and the Faroes. Their unrivalled natural beauty will take your breath away, and you’ll fall deeply in love with their misty mysticism as you stand at awe-inspiring archaeological ruins. Despite their modernity, these are essentially ancient places where the awesome power of nature is revered, and guests are made incredibly welcome. Revel in this hospitality, while you marvel at the only crowds you’re likely to see – nesting seabirds and migratory species. Your final destinations lie in Iceland – a fascinating land forged in the twin crucibles of ice and fire. Visit this country’s first and second cities, intriguing places in themselves but also gateways to a diverse collection of landscapes.
Iceland in Depth
Experience the wild and fantastic landscapes of Iceland - the land of fire and ice - on our luxury boutique ship. Circumnavigate the geologically active island, accompanied by breaching whales, to see the puffin capital of the world. Along the way, we will discover the phenomena of fjords, spectacular waterfalls and neverending volcanic scenery. Book our Iceland in Depth cruise so you can soak in mineral-filled geothermal pools, hike to thundering waterfalls, duck under the spray of hot geysers, spot millions of puffins and trek across remote locations where only arctic fox live, to bring home memories that last a lifetime.
Arctic Discovery: Iceland, Jan Mayen and Spitsbergen
Board our boutique expedition ship in the land of fire and ice for our 14-day Arctic Discovery
cruise and explore Iceland’s fjords and waterfalls as well as lava formations and bubbling mud
pools. We then set sail for Jan Mayen, a rarely visited island dominated by a snow-covered
stratovolcano in the middle of the Greenland sea. Our journey continues on to the northern
archipelago of Svalbard inside the Arctic Circle where the midnight sun throws shadows on the
icy landscape in our pursuit of arctic wildlife. Polar bears, walrus, seals and whales, and millions
of seabirds make our arctic cruise an unforgettable trip of a lifetime.
