Onboard M/S Fram

Day 4 TORSHAVN/FAROE ISLANDS (B, L, D) The Faroe Islands are a group of 18 islands that lie in the middle of the North Atlantic. Torshavn is one of the smallest capitals in the world and might very well be the oldest capital in northern Europe.

Day 6 STORNOWAY/HEBRIDES (B, L, D) The Isle of Lewis is dominated by deep glens and fjords. Stornoway was originally a Viking settlement, and thrived due to its well-sheltered natural harbour.
Day 7 OBAN/SCOTLAND (B, L, D) Oban is known as "the Gateway to the Highlands". It has a busy port, and a variety of shops and attractions. The fairly steep climb to the top of the hill is well worth the effort; on a clear day you will have magnificent views across the bay.
Day 8 IONA - STAFFA/HEBRIDES (B, L, D) Iona is an island off the western coast of Scotland. It was a centre of Irish monasticism for four centuries and is today renowned for its tranquillity and natural beauty. Staffa is a site of scientific interest and well known for its basalt columns and sea caves.
Day 9 PORTEE/ISLE OF SKYE (B, L, D) Portree is the largest town on the Isle of Skye in the Inner Hebrides. Built around the natural harbour and fringed by hills, Portree offers a bustling port and a thriving cultural life. Attractions in town include a centre celebrating the Gaelic heritage.
Day 10 KIRKWALL/ORKNEY ISLANDS (B, L, D) Kirkwall is the largest town and the capital of the Orkney Islands, dominated by the famous St. Magnus Cathedral. The first mention of a settlement is in a saga from 1046. Kirkwall is one of the most attractive and well-preserved towns in Scotland.
Day 11 LEITH/SCOTLAND (B, L, D) In Edinburgh the UNESCO World Heritage Site at the heart of the city combines the medieval Old Town, the Georgian New Town and award-winning modern architecture.
Day 12 NORTH SEA (B, L, D) Enjoy the comfort of m/s Fram while we cross the North Sea and head towards Bergen. Our Expedition Team will give lectures about the history and biology of the area we are in.
