Cruise Overview

Explore Europe end to end from north to south

13-Day expedition cruise from Lisbon to Glasgow taking in Europe’s dramatic headlands

Sail to the ends of the world

 In times past, the peninsulas jutting out into the Atlantic were called names like ‘Land’s End’, or ‘End of the World’, or ‘Finis Terrae’ in Latin. Sailing from Lisbon, you’ll explore spectacular ‘Land’s End’ regions, including Galicia’s Fisterra, Brittany’s Finistère, Cornwall’s Land’s End and the Welsh peninsula of St David’s. 

Visit cultural landmarks

 You’ll be fascinated by the famous UNESCO World Heritage Sites we visit, including the historic centres of Lisbon and Porto. In the British Isles, you’ll discover rich Celtic and Norse heritage as you explore Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly, the Isle of Man and rugged Rathlin Island.
