Trip Description

This specially designed itinerary follows along the stepping stones of Nordic and Scottish civilizations during the best time of year, when the weather is mild and the days are long—a unique voyage accomplished only aboard a small ship cruising into smaller ports where larger vessels cannot venture.


Across the length and breadth of Scotland and Norway lies an unsurpassed richness of archeological heritage left from the age of the Vikings and before, where ancient, enigmatic stone monuments and settlements present an imposing face to the world. Explore this fascinating land of ruins and old-world villages, Viking and Celtic clans and the spectacular natural beauty of misty isles, wild glens, lochs, moors and Norway’s stunning fjords. Hear the Gaelic language, still spoken in the Scottish Highlands, where the history of those who lived here for centuries emanates from the heather‑covered hillsides. Experience these remote gems of the North Atlantic on a journey to distant and mysterious islands along idyllic seascapes and splendid coastlines.

COST: From $5195 per person, double occupancy (approximate land/cruise only)
