Join TS Blue Clipper as we follow the journey home of the ancient navigators. A voyage of culture, nature, wildlife and hidden wonders.
Your adventure begins in Stornoway, the largest town in the Outer Hebrides. When you arrive in Stornoway you just know you’re about to begin an unforgettable adventure. The harbour town is the portal to discovering a dramatic island landscape, rich in its natural and historical heritage, and it’s the epicentre of Gaelic culture. As we leave this Hebridean treasure, you’ll discover an ever-changing terrain of mountains, rugged coastlines and sandy beaches. When it comes to heart-achingly beautiful scenery, the Western Isles deliver.
Adrift in the whirling rhythmic North Atlantic Sea, a different world lingers. An idyllic escape, peacefully set among lush green valleys, imposing basalt cliffs, grand treeless moorlands and waterfalls plunging directly into the wind whipped ocean. Unfathomable beauty mysteriously tucked away like a figment of a child’s imagination. There will be opportunities to go ashore and visit these unspoilt islands, often referred to as Europe’s best kept secret!
Leaving the Faroes we begin our passage to Iceland, 600 NM across the North Atlantic Ocean, expect wildlife galore during this 5 day passage.
Magnificent scenery, clarity of light and the raw power of nature make Iceland a truly amazing place to visit. Immerse yourself in ethereal panoramic landscapes and breathe in the pure mountain air of this unspoiled land. Watch waterfalls cascade from the rugged cliffs and spend hours watching the Whales and Dolphins, from the deck. We hop around the coast of Iceland, anchoring in fjords, watching wildlife and wonder at the Midnight Sun. This epic expedition finishes in Reykjavik.
