Join us for a unique, comprehensive, seven-night journey to Scotland’s rarely visited Orkney and Shetland Islands and Norway’s majestic fjords, remote destinations forever linked by their Viking heritage. Cruise from Glasgow, Scotland, to Bergen, Norway, aboard the exclusively chartered, newest Five-Star, small ship LE DUMONT D'URVILLE with a private balcony in all Suites and Staterooms and featuring the extraordinary Blue Eye, the world’s first multisensory, underwater Observation Lounge.
We will cruise into ports accessible only by small ship amid spectacular landscapes in this seafaring region steeped in history and cultural richness. Enjoy a full-day scenic excursion into the Scottish Highlands, with visits to Fort William, Glenfinnan and Glencoe, and a specially arranged ride on Norway’s Flåm Railway, one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys. Visit Kirkwall in the
Orkney Islands; prehistoric Jarlshof in the Shetland Islands; the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Orkney’s Neolithic Ring of Brodgar and Skara Brae, including a special presentation by the Ness of Brodgar archaeological site director and head archaeologist; and Bergen’s picturesque Bryggen.
