Overview

This expedition charts a course unlike any other on Earth, following the Viking voyages from the north of Scotland to the Faroe Islands and onward to Iceland.

The Orkney and Shetland Isles offer amazing prehistoric archeology, hiking and bird-watching. The Faroe Islands are the jewels of the North Atlantic. We’ll visit staggering cliffs hosting vast colonies of seabirds and quaint villages clinging to tiny islands.

As we approach Iceland, we’ll experience earth in making: the new volcanic island of Surtsey; the dramatic sea caves of the Westman Islands, and the town of Heimaey—nearly destroyed by a volcano short decades ago.

Highlights

  • Stunning Múlafossur waterfall

    The perfect photo backdrop, the Múlafossur waterfall plunges into the North Atlantic leaving behind Gásadalur, a small village and the home to about 20 people. Settled under the highest mountain on the Vágar island, Gásadalur, until recently, could only be accessed by foot. Walking over the mountain.

  • Tórshavn, the capital of the Faroe Islands

    Admire the history and beauty of red-painted wooden buildings cover with turf roofs. A home to the Faorese government. A former Viking trading centre, Tórshavn is a splendid little city to explore. The National Art Gallery is a treasure, surrounded by gorgeous grounds with walking trails.

  • Iceland, the realm of the active earth

    At the edge of the Arctic Circle, Iceland is dominated by geology—and defined by the sea. Volcanoes, waterfalls, mountains, fjords, sea stacks, bird cliffs, lava fields, glaciers, and caves… even if you’re not a geologist, Iceland has something for you!

  • Neolithic Scottish history – only seen by sea!

    Off the north coast of mainland Scotland, Orkney has been settled for at least eight thousand years. Many Neolithic archeological sites have been preserved here, including villages, ceremonial sites, and burial chambers.
