The British Isles

Our voyages around the Scottish Islands navigate among the most beautiful seabird islands in the North Atlantic. Virtually all the headlands in late Spring and early Summer are the sites of large colonies. Dolphins, porpoises, seals and whales may be sighted from the ship and landings allow us to see reindeer and Arctic fox.

Sailings are timed to coincide with a profusion of wild flowers and the sea cliffs of the Scottish Islands should look like rock gardens with the pink and white of sea pinks and sea campion. In addition to their natural history we will also focus on their human history and artefacts, such as old whaling stations.

We head north from the Scottish Islands and, depending on the itinerary, visit the Faroes, Bear Island, Spitsbergen, the Lofoten Islands and Jan Mayen, a volcanic island of famously unpredictable weather yet breathtaking beauty, whose impressive glaciers spill into the sea from the slopes of Mt. Beerenberg.
