North Atlantic Saga: Scotland, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland

North Atlantic Saga: Scotland, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland   picture Emerging from the mists of legend, the north Atlantic isles are wonders of geology, ecology, and human history. From the craggy coastline of Scotland, past the staggering cliffs of the Faroe Islands to the volcanic plains of Iceland, this expedition charts a course unlike any other on Earth.

Join us as we explore ancient Neolithic ruins on rugged Celtic islands, and sail into the sagas of Norse explorers bound for far-flung Arctic shores. Hikers and bird-watchers alike will delight in the puffins and skuas that wheel over wave-battered headlands. You’ll experience local culture in villages that have been occupied since ancient times, and meet modern-day fishermen working the same waters that fed their forebears.

Find seabird populations abounding in their vast nesting grounds. Photograph exquisite wildflowers in early summer bloom. Visit newborn islands, picturesque communities, and sprawling glaciers. Join the lucky few who have travelled in the wake of the Vikings from Aberdeen to Rekyavík—charting an ancient course between modern ports, amid the mythic islands of the north Atlantic!

Aberdeen—the Granite City, or the Silver City—is the third most populous urban area in Scotland. Many of Aberdeen’s buildings are of locally quarried granite; the high mica content of this stone can sparkle like silver. The traditional industries of fishing, paper-making, shipbuilding, and textiles, have been overtaken by the oil industry since discovery of North Sea oil in the 1970s. Aberdeen’s heliport is one of the busiest in the world. The city is famed for its forty-five parks, gardens, and floral displays. We board the Ocean Endeavour in the afternoon.
