Join us to experience the British Isles and Ireland on a magic-filled journey that highlights the natural beauty of this region as much as its rich ancient history. We will sail from capital to capital, London to Dublin, over 10 days, starting at the historic Tower of London. Experience the English Channel as it has been travelled for centuries, stopping first at St. Peter’s Port on Guernsey Isle, one of the world’s most beautiful ports. See the incredible Tresco Abbey Gardens at the Isles of Scilly off Cornwall and stop to visit ancient medieval castles in Pembroke, Wales. Most of your time will be spent in Ireland, where we will find the massive and ornate Kylemore Abbey with its 6-acre Victorian Walled Gardens nestled in Druchruach Mountain. We will also enjoy an evening ashore on Clare Island to experience traditional Irish fare, music, drinks and dancing. This trip will delight nature-lovers: see for yourself why the Cliffs of Moher are Ireland’s most popular natural attraction, view thousands of flowers and plants at Tresco Abbey, and observe over 27,000 pairs of northern gannets and other birds at Skellig Islands. Throughout the voyage, learn about the geology, wildlife and botany of these naturally beautiful locations from lecture presentations offered by your knowledgeable on-board Expedition Team.
