Itinerary

An amazing display of purple, blue, pink and green light dancing across the dark sky of night, the spectacular Aurora Borealis is one of nature’s greatest wonders. This voyage takes you to Iceland, the ‘Land of Fire & Ice’ where, if atmospheric conditions are right, you have the chance to witness the incredible Northern Lights. The Faroe, Shetland and Orkney Islands are fascinating stepping stones on this spectacular voyage.

Cruise Highlights

  • Surrounded by green slopes and mountains, Saksun is one of the most idyllic villages in the Faroes with its traditional turf-roofed cottages.
  • Visit a remote site, away from Reykjavik’s light pollution, where you will have the best opportunity to search for the Aurora Borealis.
  • For the adventurous, maybe try a glacier discovery by snow truck, a 4x4 drive across the amazing landscape, or a snow-mobiling experience.
  • Wander through the narrow, flagstone streets of Lerwick and learn about its history, heritage and culture at the award winning Shetland Museum.
  • On Orkney, step back 5,000 years and explore the impressive Neolithic settlement of Skara Brae, one of the best preserved groups of prehistoric houses in Western Europe.

Highlights may be subject to pre-registering specific shore excursions and are subject to operation and weather conditions. Viewing of the Northern Lights is subject to suitable atmospheric/weather conditions.
