Cruise Overview

Discover the pristine natural beauty of the rugged Scottish Isles, the ’Land of Fire and Ice’, Iceland, and the frozen island of Spitsbergen.

26-day expedition cruise exploring the Scottish Isles, Norway, Iceland, and Svalbard

Island adventures 

Our adventure begins as we sail from Glasgow to Belfast and the Isle of Man. Follow the whisky trail in Islay before exploring the beautiful Outer Hebrides, Viking-influenced Orkneys, and remote Shetland Islands. After a day in Bergen, we’ll sail to the Faroe Islands, known for their soaring bird cliffs. 

To the Arctic 

The next leg of our journey takes us to some of Iceland’s northern coastal towns, including Húsavík, the country’s whale watching capital. We’ll attempt to land at Jan Mayen, site of the world’s northernmost volcano, before spending two days around Spitsbergen, and ending our expedition in Longyearbyen.
