An Epic Norse Adventure

By passing through the Hebrides, Faroe Islands and Iceland before crossing continents to Greenland, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, this epic journey will trace some of the same points on the compass visited by the Vikings thousands of years ago.
Following in their historic footsteps you will encounter the remote islands, magnificent fjords and icy landscapes that lay in their path, some of which are still barely visited today. As you move through crisp Arctic waters, be on the lookout for the remarkable wildlife of the region, including whales, seals and seabirds – yet another fascinating layer to this varied and extraordinary voyage.
