Join us on board Magellan as she cruises from Dundee to Norway and then to four of Britain's most beautiful island outposts before returning to Greenock. Discover a landscape marked by crashing waterfalls and ancient villages as Magellan cruises up Hardangerfjord, and along the vast length of Sognefjord, past deep forests and towering mountains, to the tiny village of Flam.

Spend a relaxed day exploring Bergen's lively fish market and Bryggen, its lovingly regenerated warehouse district now full of unusual shops and stylish restaurants and bars. Explore the Shetland Islands' capital, Lerwick; step ashore in Kirkwall to see St Magnus Cathedral or cross the island to gaze out across the historic waters of Scapa Flow; and explore the tiny settlements and spectacular scenery of the Isle of Skye and the Isle of Mull.
