If ever an archipelago was made for expedition cruising it is the islands off Scotland’s west coast which form stepping stones into the Atlantic. Here you will find magnificent scenery, fascinating history and enormous natural splendour. We will be exploring the wonders of the Hebrides in the northern summer when the sun barely shrinks below the horizon and when there is a stillness and an almost wistful feeling in the air. This is the time when the enchanted visitor will be moved and seduced by the majesty of the islands, lochs and seascapes. One of Europe’s true last remaining wilderness areas affords the traveller a marvellous island hopping journey through stunning scenery accompanied by spectacular sunsets and wonderful wildlife.
With our naturalists and local guides we will explore the length and breadth of the isles, and with our nimble Zodiac craft be able to reach some of the most remote and untouched places. There is no better way to explore this endlessly fascinating and beautiful region that will cast its spell on you than by our small ship, the MS Serenissima. Whether your interest lies in wildlife, gardens, photography, ancient history or simply an appreciation of this unique corner of the kingdom, this unique voyage has something for everyone. With just 95 travelling companions, the atmosphere on board is more akin to a private yacht trip and ashore with our local experts we will divide into small groups thereby enjoying a more comprehensive and peaceful experience.
