Greenland, Iceland & Norway Exploration
Black Watch • W1713 • Prices from £1,699.00 (cruise only)
Sailing from Scotland allows us show you these breathtaking parts of the world in a fraction of the time it would take from a southern UK departure port; so after embarking in Rosyth you’ll spend just two relaxing days at sea before docking in Reykjavik. Make the most of your day in the Icelandic capital to discover the Gullfoss Waterfall, Geysir Hot Springs and other highlights of the ‘Golden Circle’; or perhaps visit the city’s array of museums, galleries and exhibitions before sailing onwards to Greenland. Take in the snow-smothered peaks and icy, aquamarine waters of Angmagssalik Fjord en route to Tasiilaq, a simply mesmerising town surrounded by rugged mountains and impressive icebergs. Be sure to look out for arctic hares, foxes and other fauna here; and don’t miss the chance to visit the beautiful Kiattut Glacier.
Returning to Iceland, discover the glorious Godafoss Waterfall and incredible Skútustadir craters at Lake Mývatn on tours from picturesque Akureyi, or alternatively go in search of minke, humpback and sei whales on a once-in-a-lifetime whale watching trip. Then after cruising Eyjafjörður – Iceland’s longest fjord – and Reyðarfjörður; you’ll visit Eskifjörður, which is home to the world’s largest spar quarry and offers great views of the imposing, 985 metre-high Hólmatindur Mountain. Concluding your scenic adventure in Norway, you’ll have the opportunity to admire the art-nouveau structures of Alesund, where you can also climb Mount Aksla for superb panoramic views; and visit Olden for trips to the astonishing Briksdal Glacier.
