WorldWide Cruises 2017-18

The Wonders of Iceland 30th June 2017 • 14 nights • Sails from Dover • Black Watch • CRUISE ID: W1709 Savour the Scottish Hebrides before setting forth for an uninhibited discovery of the Faroe Islands and Iceland. There are chances to encounter friendly whales; see natural wonders galore within the ‘Golden Circle’; and discover Tórshavn, one of the world’s smallest capitals. Incredible scenic highlights unfold before your eyes, from the much-photographed Tórshavn, Faroe Islands Tórshavn has a fascinating background, having been discovered by the Vikings over a thousand years ago. Being one of the world’s smallest capital cities enhances its appeal as a delightful place to explore, particularly in Tinganes, the Old Town, which is home to the iconic red parliamentary buildings with turf roofs. Further ‘must-visit’ sites include the Skansin Fortress ruins and the Nordic House Cultural Centre. Scenic Cruising, Faroe Islands A magical scenic cruising adventure awaits you in the remote Faroe Islands. Sail past Hestur, an enchanting island famed for its rich birdlife; before revelling in the obscurity of the islets Gáshólmur and Tindhólmur, and then the unusual, arch-shaped sea stack of Drangarnir. The enigmatic Gásadalur is next, an iconic village that’s one of the most photographed areas of the islands, before you’ll encounter Mykines, the westernmost island of the archipelago home to a plethora of nesting seabirds. Cruising Seyðisfjörður Bask in mystic remoteness as you follow the twisting Seyðisfjörður towards the town of the same name. You’ll glide gently through the calm waters, before the sound of thundering waterfalls takes hold. This display of nature is formed by the river Fjarðará as it cascades down to a lagoon at the head of the fjord. Seyðisfjörður, Iceland Pretty Seyðisfjörður is one of Iceland’s most difficult towns to reach, making a visit even more special and one of the advantages of cruising the Icelandic coast. Snow-capped peaks and plunging waterfalls surround a friendly hub brimming with artistic and aesthetic delights, including multi-coloured wooden houses, galleries, handicraft shops From only £1,699 per person Gásadalur to the spine-tingling Westfjords. Falmouth, England Falmouth is home to a network of creeks and rivers, along with a sandy beachfront; the spectacular landscapes of the area were used as the setting for the iconic series Poldark. The town is also the gateway to some of England’s most resplendent attractions: the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, St. Michael’s Mount and Lizard Peninsula. Tobermory, Isle of Mull Pretty Tobermory is best known for its brightly-coloured houses that line the waterfront, although the Mull Museum and Tobermory Distillery are well worth a visit too. Admire the beautiful landscapes on the picturesque Isles of Mull and Iona, or take a trip on the Sound of Mull for the chance to spot Minke Whales, seals and guillemots. Cruising by Fingal’s Cave This fascinating sea-cave has been rated as the top UK scenic cruising highlight by Fred. Olsen guests and often draws comparisons with the famous Giant’s Causeway; you’re sure to be in for an unforgettable experience here. Keep your binoculars handy – it’s an ideal place for a spot of birdwatching too. Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, Scotland The remoteness of Stornoway makes calling here even more special: a relaxing, rewarding cruise is certainly the best way to visit. Admire spine-tingling views from Lews Castle; savour spectacular photo opportunities at the Callanish Standing Stones; or embark on a scenic expedition to the northernmost point on the Outer Hebrides – the Butt of Lewis Lighthouse. Single friendly: We will always offer an Ocean View Twin Room at a reduced price for sole occupancy. Please call for details.
