Set sail on an unforgettable 8-day cruise aboard Le Champlain, between Celtic lands and Viking territory. Historical discoveries and stunning scenery will punctuate this trip taking you from Scotland to Norway.
Departing from Glasgow, Scotland’s warm cultural capital with a rich artistic and architectural heritage, you will first sail towards Fort William. This harbour town on the shores of Loch Linnhe is steeped in Scottish history and tradition, close to the beautiful and spectacular scenery of Glencoe.
From Kyle of Lochalsh, spend a day including the unparalleled Isle of Skye. Not to be missed on the mainland is Eilean Donan, one of the most recognisable castles in the world and an iconic symbol of Scotland.
Le Champlain will sail towards Kirkwall, capital of the Orkney Islands, where numerous seabirds, such as gannets and European shags, have taken up residence.
You will then call at the port of Lerwick in the Shetland Islands. This port is well known because just a few kilometres inland lie the remarkable ruins of Scalloway Castle, built in 1600.
Le Champlain will then set a course for Norway, its stunning scenery and its incredible cities and towns. From Olden, a charming village, located a few kilometres from Jostedalsbreen National Park and home to one of the last ice caps in Europe, you will have the opportunity to admire the magnificent Briksdal glacier.
