British Isles and Faroes Itinerary

Day 1 - Hamburg (Germany)

Embark your ship in Hamburg.

Day 2 - At Sea

Enjoy the facilities on board during a day at sea.

Day 3 - Dartmouth (England)

Set on the banks of the River Dart, the enchanting town of Dartmouth is steeped in maritime history and boasts Britain’s largest Naval College along with a rich cultural history. Buckfast Abbey, castles, steam trains and magnificent walking trails are just a few of the compelling attractions waiting to be explored during our visit. We will be anchored in the centre of the town with a short tender ride ashore, allowing you easy access to visit the town on your own. Or join one of our impressive excursions to learn more about this fascinating town.

Day 4 - Isles of Scilly

This enchanting archipelago off the coast of Cornwall is home to outstandingly beautiful, uncrowded and unspoilt islands. Ideal for exploring on foot, the town of Tresco is home to the world famous Tresco Abbey Garden with its 20,000 plants from 80 different countries. You can also explore the castle ruins or stroll along the tropical-like white beaches. You may also visit St. Mary’s – the largest of the islands – with its rocky coves, archaeological sites and charming Hugh Town. Alternatively, join one of our optional excursions for a trip around the islands, visiting shipwreck sites, spotting seals basking on the rocks and cruising around the bird sanctuary of Annet to observe the puffins and numerous other breeding seabirds.

Day 5 - Douglas (Isle of Man)

With a rural landscape and rugged coastline, the Isle of Man became a designated Biosphere Reserve in recognition of its marine and coastal ecosystems. Our location in Douglas enables us to explore the island which has a strong Celtic and Viking heritage. Explore a spectacular landscape of rolling hills, pebble-dash beaches and coastal paths. Visit magnificent castles and Viking museums, board a historic steam train, or just enjoy strolling through the town at your leisure.

Day 6 - Belfast (Northern Ireland)

A city of industry and elegance, Belfast is the birthplace of the Titanic, as well as being the capital and largest city of Northern Ireland. It is a gateway to a glorious countryside of pretty villages and a beautiful rugged coast with pristine beaches and breathtaking clifftop walks. Experience Giants Causeway, hike through spectacular scenery or explore what this impressive city has to offer.

Day 7 - Stornoway (Scotland)

Originally a Viking settlement, Stornoway is the main town of the Western Isles and the capital of the Isle of Lewis, which is the largest and most northerly of the Outer Hebrides. A bustling harbour and waterfront with museums and art galleries are overlooked by the handsome Lews Castle which we invite you to explore with us. Further afield are mills and cottages where hard-wearing Harris Tweed is woven. There are tiny folk museums, the world-famous Callanish Standing Stones, and the mysterious Carloway Broch - the best preserved fort in Scotland dating back more than 2,000 years.

Day 8 - Torshavn (Faroe Islands)

The Faroe Islands are a group of 18 isles that lie in the middle of the North Atlantic, halfway between the Shetland Islands and Iceland. Tórshavn is one of the smallest capitals in the world, with just 15,000 inhabitants. It was founded in the 10th century, and might very well be the oldest capital in northern Europe. Since the turn of the 20th century, Tórshavn has grown rapidly, and is today the economic, cultural and administrative centre of the Faroes. The town is a charming blend of old and new with small houses in nearly every colour.
