The Faroe Islands

Here, sheep outnumber people, and some 2 million pairs of seabirds outnumber the human population of Copenhagen. A green, rugged and windswept landscape never takes you more than three miles from the sea, and always keeps you close to your camera, which you will use to take pictures of dramatic scenery. The Faroe Islands are home to the largest colony of storm petrels in the world. Boat trips can take you out onto the water for a look at local birdlife, while the Leirvík undersea tunnel can deliver you to the Faroe Islands’ mainland.

Djupivogur, Iceland

Home to Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajokull, Djupivogur offers the tidy little pleasures of strolling a historic fishing and trade town, which began to flourish in 1589 when German merchants were granted permission to trade by the Danish king. Warmed by fresh coffee and perhaps a Danish, head out to the glacial lagoon to admire the magical scenery, try your hand at fishing or join a birding expedition, a fine idea in this unspoiled natural setting that is home to an amazing variety of birds.

Fowey, Cornwall, United Kingdom

This quaint Cornish town  boasts a 14th century parish  church, with a traditional bell tower that peeks out from behind the colorful buildings that gather around it. Situated at the mouth of the river Fowey, this fishing town  has a picturesque waterfront with boats bobbing in the harbor and the river itself curling about the village in a cool, blue embrace. Being ever so English, Fowey has its fair share of tidy pubs, not to mention a small castle.

    The ancient Egyptians, as well as Norman and Viking warriors, visited Dublin. However, the city's most pervasive surviving influences come from the 18th and 19th centuries when elegant Georgian mansions were first built along the river and then outward from its shores. The arts also flourished during this period and Dublin served as the birthplace of some of our greatest literary figures such as Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw and James Joyce to name only a few.

  9. Thursday, June 8, 2017 Waterford, Ireland

    The port city of Waterford, founded in the 9th century, lies on the banks of the River Suir (pronounced Shure) and is the regional capital of Ireland's southeast. It is the perfect gateway for a host of sightseeing opportunities, from rolling green countryside to traditional villages, castles and abbeys.

    During the period of rule by the Norman and the English, this city was a focus for international trading and local development, particularly with regard to the celebrated Waterford Crystal. Although the original Waterford Crystal Factory was closed in 1851, its revival in 1947 has brought a new wave of prosperity to this region. Today, visitors from around the world marvel at the factory's award-winning displays and witness first hand the time-honored skills of glass blowing, cutting and engraving.

  11. Saturday, June 10, 2017 London/Portsmouth, United Kingdom    Debarkation

    You would be hard pressed to find a city with a more significant naval heritage than Portsmouth. The world’s oldest dry dock, it is home to some of history’s most storied ships, including Lord Nelson’s flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar, HMS Victory; Henry VII’s Tudor warship, Mary Rose; and the world’s first iron hulled armored ship, HMS Warrior. The city also has impressive cultural and entertainment credentials. It is the birthplace of author Charles Dickens and comedian Peter Sellers and has served as a shooting location for a variety of films, including the James Bond installment, Tomorrow Never Dies. For all its high-level associations, Portsmouth remains a wonderfully low-key destination. Enjoy a pass along the cobbled streets of the shopping district or step aboard a high-speed elevator of the Spinnaker Tower, the sail-inspired observation tower that rises 560 feet above the port to showcase magnificent views.
