Explore the far-flung British Isles

Over 15 days and 5 countries, you’ll encounter amazing birdlife, geological wonders, remote idylls, picturesque villages, incredible landscapes and distinct cultural identities in each destination.

From Dover, we sail along the south coast of England and up the west coast of the British Isles to Wales, Northern, and the Hebrides before returning to Dover via the Scottish Highlands, Waterford in Ireland and the most scenic coastal ports in Cornwall and Dorset.

Nature, wildlife and whisky

Bird enthusiasts will be in awe of the birdlife on Rathlin Island and the largest seabird colony in Europe on the UNESCO-listed archipelago of St Kilda. You’ll visit historical landmarks and isolated coves. Enjoy walks along spectacular coastal paths around Fishguard and Portland. Marvel at the prettiness of the Isles of Scilly and Fowey. Drink in the views on the whisky island of Islay, the wild landscapes around Fort William, and be impressed by the natural acoustics of Fingal’s Cave on Staffa.
