Passage North

Here is a voyage for those who want to see nature in the raw and one which combines an in-depth exploration of the remote and little visited Faroe Islands with time spent exploring Iceland, one of the most extraordinary and dramatic lands on the planet.

We set sail from Aberdeen, enjoying a morning on Fair Isle before sailing north to the Faroe Islands, once a stopping point for Viking explorers, this mysterious collection of 18 islands set in the North Atlantic, halfway between Norway and Iceland, is a paradise for walkers and bird watchers. The intriguing history of the islands can be traced back to the Irish monks who settled there in the 6th century and the 9th century seafaring explorers who traversed the North Sea and claimed Orkney, the Shetland Islands, Iceland and Greenland. Here, a highlight will be seeing the many puffins and other sea birds nesting and we will spend four days exploring the villages and rolling hills of these distant isles before venturing further north to Iceland.

Whilst in Iceland we will witness the immense scale of the landscape dominated by towering snow-capped mountains, thundering waterfalls and spontaneous erupting geysers as we learn of the centuries old legacies of a Viking and Norse heritage. Europe’s least populated country offers the visitor a truly unparalleled experience of elemental forces at work and we will visit some of its most dramatic areas and whilst we sail its waters will look out for humpback whales, orcas, white-beaked dolphins and observe the colonies of seabirds.

Such a journey can of course only be taken by a small ship and with the use of our nimble Zodiacs we can get up close to nature and explore some of the most remote and untouched places. With just over 100 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.

Passage North itinerary:

show reverse itinerary
Day 1 - Aberdeen, Scotland.
Embark this afternoon, transfers will be provided from Aberdeen Airport and rail station at a set time.
Day 2 - Fair Isle.
This morning we anchor off the remote island of Fair isle. Located midway between the Shetland and Orkney islands, the tiny population of sixty or so islanders always extend us a warm welcome. Enjoy a walk across the island, perhaps visiting the Bird Observatory, searching out the puffin slopes, or meet the local community and maybe purchase some of the famous knitwear. Spend the afternoon at sea as we continue our journey north to the Faroe Islands.
Day 3 - Suduroy, Faroe Islands.
Over breakfast we will arrive at Suduroy, the southernmost island of the Faroe Islands. From the port of Tvoroyri we have a choice of activities. Choose to join an island drive and travel between the villages seeing the stunning geology, fjords, tunnels and architecture of the island and end at the southernmost point and the Akraberg lighthouse. In Porkeri we will take the ridge-top road which winds up the mountain side for wonderful views towards the steep cliffs on the west coast, the Beinisvoro promontory to the north and the luscious grass slopes to the east. Alternatively the active may wish to join a hike to Hvaanhagi, a beautiful, uninhibited place north of Tvoroyri on the east coast of Suduroy where the view is fantastic towards the three islands Litla Dimun, Stora Dimun and Skuvoy.
Day 4 - Vestmanna.
Spend the day in Vestmanna, our base as we discover the northwest corner of Streymoy and the nearby cliffs. This morning we will board local boats to explore the vertical cliffs that climb almost 1500 feet, sailing into grottos carved by the surf over the years and watching the thousands of sea birds including puffins, guillemots, fulmars and kittiwakes that nest here each summer. After lunch on board we will drive to the beautiful village of Saksun, an isolated settlement situated beneath steep majestic mountains. Call at Duvugaroar, an old farmhouse, which is now a museum and visit a traditional Faeroese wooden church in Kollafjord. This evening we sail the short distance to Torshavn where we moor overnight allowing the opportunity for an after dinner stroll.
Day 5 - Torshavn.
We have the day to explore the capital of the Faroe Islands and surrounding area. There will be a choice of tours including a guided tour through Torshavn over the hills to Kirkjubour, the island’s oldest cultural centre, where we see the ruins of the 13th century St. Magnus Cathedral and the 11th century church which is still in use. We also visit the 900-year old ‘Roykstovan’, the old bishopric, considered to be the oldest wooden house in Europe. Alternatively join a hike in the hills surrounding the town to discover the local flora and fauna or visit the island of Nolsoy situated just five kilometres from the capital. Enjoy time to explore the small village or visit some of the craft shops whilst the keen birders may join a walk with our onboard team to see one of Europe’s largest colonies of storm petrels as well as Atlantic puffins and black guillemots.
Day 6 - Klaksvik.
Our last morning in the Faroe Islands will be spent exploring the island of Borooy in the north of the group. During our morning excursion we will learn more about the Faroese and Viking traditions as we make our way via a three mile long tunnel 500 feet under the sea to Leirvik on the island of Eysturoy. Here we will see the archaeological excavations of a thousand year old Viking farm before continuing to Gota, located at the head of the broad Gotuvik fjord. This historic area was the home of the famous Viking chieftain, Trondur i Gotu, who defended the old Viking ways against the desire of the Norwegian king and the Faroese chieftain, Sigmundu Brestisson, to convert the Faroese to Christianity. Ruins of his farm are found in Gota, whilst the Blasastova Museum provides an insight into the culture and way of life in the Faroes in past centuries. Return to the ship for lunch and enjoy an afternoon at sea as we continue our voyage to Iceland.
Day 7 - Seydisfjordur, Iceland.
After a morning at sea we arrive this afternoon in Iceland at the natural harbour of Seydisfjordur which has preserved its fishing heritage from the early 19th century and its architectural style. On a walking tour we will pass brightly painted and well preserved wooden buildings and visit the shops famous for their Icelandic patterned woollens. The keen walkers might prefer an energetic hike up the river trail through a verdant landscape of wildflowers.
Day 8 - Husavik.
Over breakfast we arrive in Husavik, known as the whale capital of Iceland. This morning we will use local boats to explore Skjalfandi Bay looking for one of the 15 species of whales, the most popular being humpback, minke and blue whales, as well as white beaked dolphins and many different kinds of birds. After lunch on board we have the afternoon to explore the pretty town including time at the excellent whale museum, the exploration museum and quaint local church.
Day 9 - Grimsey Island & Siglufjordur.
Spend the morning on Grimsey Island. The Arctic Circle bisects this island which is known for its tiny community, basalt cliffs and large variety of birdlife. On arrival join our expedition team for a nature walk on the island. Over lunch we sail to Siglufjordur, a picturesque town that enjoys an idyllic setting in a small fjord backed by mountains. Here in the early 1900s, a booming economy due to the herring industry resulted in a prosperous town with some marvellous Icelandic architecture. Stroll through the town and visit the Herring Era Museum. Be on deck early this evening as we sail down Eyafjordur, on the lookout for whales, during our approach to Akureyri.
Day 10 - Akureyri.
This delightful town on the north coast of Iceland is not what you would expect to find in such a remote location. In summer months the gardens and window boxes are ablaze with colour and on a morning tour we will explore the botanic garden where we find species from Africa, China and the Mediterranean growing alongside the Alaskan, Greenlandic and indigenous specimens. We will also have time to explore the town and visit Art Alley,where artisans keep their workshops and galleries, or the local church with its beautiful views over the fjord. Our tour ends at the imposing Godafoss Waterfall. You can then choose to either return to the ship for lunch and enjoy a free afternoon in the town or continue to the Lake Myvatn-Krafla area, a fine example of the volcanic world with lava fields, boiling and steaming mud pools and steam vents of sulphur and craters. The area illustrates the sheer magnitude of Iceland’s forces at work. The lake itself, with beautiful natural rock formations and hot springs, is also a unique ecosystem and the largest migratory bird sanctuary in Europe. We will offer time in the natural baths or on a bird watching walk before returning to the ship later this afternoon.
Day 11 - Hornbjarg & Vigur Island.
In the early morning we will arrive at the Hornbjarg Cliffs. These stunning cliffs rise 534 metres from the sea and are one of the largest centres for puffins in Iceland. We will use our ship to view this wonderful sight before continuing to the Western Fjords, an isolated but spectacular area of Iceland. Arriving in the early afternoon we will explore Isafjordur with the MS Hebridean Sky and depending on local weather conditions, we hope to land on Vigur, a serene little island with only five residents but home to many more puffins, eider ducks, black guillemots and Arctic terns. We can also visit Iceland’s only extant windmill dating from the 19th century.
Day 12 - Latrabjarg & Breidafjordur.
During breakfast we will cruise past the Latrabjarg cliffs, the westernmost point of Europe and home to a huge number of birds including puffins, northern gannets, guillemots and razorbills. If time and weather permits we hope to launch the Zodiacs for a closer look. Later on we see the advantages of our small ship as we start to explore the fjords north of Reykjavik. We will start in Breidafjordur where we hope to make a landing at the quaint little island of Flatey with its old village, painted houses, church and the oldest and smallest library in Iceland.
Day 13 - Snaefellsnes.
Our final day in Iceland sees us at the Snaefellsnes Peninsula which is dominated by the Snæfellsjökull volcano, regarded as one of the symbols of Iceland. Again we will use our Zodiacs to land in some of the more remote areas. Arnastapi is known as the setting for Jules Verne’s ‘Journey to the Centre of the Earth’ and is a stunning location with columnar basalt, ravines and grottoes and magnificent lava formations. The cliffs between Arnastapi and Hellnar became a Natural Reserve in 1979 and are home to Arctic tern, kittiwake and fulmar. We will explore local fishing villages, walk on the beaches and see the black lava that dominates the area whilst the active may enjoy a walk inside the Vatnshellir Cave, a lava cave accessible by a long staircase deep underground and where our guide will inform us of the geology, history and folklore associated here.
Day 14 - Reykjavik to London Heathrow.
Disembark this morning and transfer to the airport for your scheduled flight to London.
