Day 3Torshavn, Faroes
Arrive: 0900hrs Depart: 0700hrs (Day Four) Tiny, Toytown-like Torshavn is the capital of the Faroe Islands. Explore its confusion of lanes, narrow passages and black-tarred houses with green turf on the roofs, or join an excursion, perhaps to cross the famous Bridge across the Atlantic connecting the main island of Streymoy with the spectacular scenery and ancient wooden churches of smaller Eysturoy.
Day 4Klaksvik, Faroes
Arrive: 1200hrs Depart: 1800hrs After a morning spent cruising through the Faroe Islands, Magellan calls in Klaksvik, capital of the Nordoyar (the six north-easternmost Faroes). Many of the inhabitants of this remote Danish outpost are direct descendants of the Vikings, and still speak an ancient Norse language. Sheltered by conical mountains, Klaksvik is surrounded by a birdwatcher’s paradise of green meadows that you’ll be able to explore on today’s optional shore excursion.

Arrive: 1800hrs (Day Seven) Depart: 1800hrs (Day Nine) After a day sailing along the Icelandic coast, Magellan docks in the world's northernmost capital, the fascinating city of Reykjavik, this evening.

Witness geothermal activity at the famous Blue Lagoon Pool and at the original Geysir - after which all others are named.
Days 10-11At sea

Day 12Belfast, Northern Ireland
Arrive: 0800hrs Depart: 2100hrs This morning, Magellan arrives in historic Belfast.

Arrive: 0800hrs Depart: 2130hrs Magellan's last point of call is delightful Dublin, the incomparable Irish capital - once home to Joyce, Yeats, Wilde and Swift.

Day 14Arrive Liverpool
Arrive: 0800hrs Say goodbye to Magellan, her crew and your fellow passengers as she arrives in Liverpool, today, and you disembark at the end of a wonderful cruise. Back to top
