Wildlife, bygone civilisations and modern life in the North Atlantic 

Ancient sites and modern life 

Sail from Dover to the Icelandic capital via the remote and wild isles of the North Atlantic. As the gentler summer weather warms these much-storied seas, you’ll explore exciting capital cities, Neolithic sites, thriving island towns, and tiny villages where the influence of the Vikings can still be felt. 

Wildlife and expansive skies 

Seabirds and marine life thrive under the huge skies of the North Atlantic. Whether you’re on our small expedition boats, on MS Maud’s decks or on foot, you’ll see towering cliffs teeming with seabirds and watch for whales and dolphins splashing in the seas around us.
