Join us for a unique, comprehensive, seven-night journey to Scotland’s rarely-visited Orkney and Shetland Islands and Norway’s majestic fjords, remote destinations forever linked by their Viking heritage. Cruise from Glasgow, Scotland, to Bergen, Norway, aboard the five-star, 92-stateroom Le Champlain, which features the world’s first multisensory, underwater observatory lounge. Travel in the wake of early Viking explorers, cruising into ports accessible only by small ship amid spectacular landscapes in this seafaring region steeped in history and cultural richness. Highlights include a full-day scenic excursion into the Scottish Highlands with visits to Fort William, Glenfinnan, and Glencoe; a specially-arranged ride on Norway’s Flåm Railway, one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys; visits to Kirkwall in the Orkney Islands, prehistoric Jarlshof in the Shetland Islands, and the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Orkney’s Neolithic Ring of Brodgar and Skara Brae, including a special presentation by the Ness of Brodgar’s head archaeologist; and Bergen’s picturesque Bryggen. This program is co-sponsored with other educational institutions.
Also available are an Edinburgh/Glasgow Pre-Cruise Option and a Norway/Copenhagen Post‑Cruise Option.
