Your itinerary in detail

Days 1 & 2

Day 1: Copenhagen

  • The cruise begins in the heart of Copenhagen, where the Ocean Albatros is moored. Get settled in your cabin as you set sail.
  • Dinner will be served in the elegant restaurant as you will pass Kronborg Castle, which gained fame for being the castle in Shakespeare's Hamlet

Day 2: Skagen

  • Moor in the important fishing port and artistic area of beautiful Skagen. Skagen is known for its fantastic sunshine, vibrant city life, quaint yellow houses and white sandy beaches.
  • Take a coach tour to Grenen, the pointed peninsula that marks Denmark's northernmost point. Climb aboard a tractor-bus and admire the spot where the waters of the Skagerrak and Kattegat meet the waves.
  • Take a leisurely stroll through the town that houses the Skagen Art Museum, where visitors can admire the permanent collection of works by the famous 19th-century Danish painters Anna Ancher, P.S. Krøyer, Holger Drachmann and others. 
  • Return to the port of Skagen to re-embark for a late lunch and continue on the North Sea to Norway. The first navigators of this region, now known as Vikings, were people from the Nordic countries of Denmark, Sweden and Norway. As you travel some of the routes taken by the Vikings, you will learn more about their history and legacy and perhaps dispel some romanticised views of this seafaring people.

Days 3 & 4

Day 3: Haugesund

  • Head to small islands and gentle hills between Bergen and Stavanger in south-western Norway, where lies the sheltered Karmsund Strait; at its northern entrance find the beautiful old town of Haugesund, home of Harald Fairhair, Norway's first Viking king. The history of shipping and shipbuilding is evident throughout the town.
  • Many Icelandic sagas tell us the stories of the first Viking king, and the Orkneyinga and Heimskringla sagas in particular tell of Harald Fairhair's military journey westwards. Here the king fought to rid the region of dissident Viking pirates, who were raiding the Norwegian coast. The expedition then continued to Scotland, where many of these dissidents had taken refuge, crossing the same seas where our itinerary takes us.

Day 4: Shetland Islands

  • Approach Lerwick, the capital of Shetland. Shetland consists of over 100 islands, of which only 15 are inhabited all year round. 
  • Once safely docked at the harbour, set off through Lerwick in the direction of Scalloway for a short scenic drive. Enjoy views of the charming village and the imposing Scalloway Castle.
  • Following the road northwards to Clickimin Broch, and discover this well-preserved and restored Broch, a mysterious Iron Age fortresses (please note: the coach excursion is part of the excursion package and is not included in the price of the trip).
  • Afterwards, return to Lerwick and continue to the nearby Isle of Noss, home to some of Scotland's most active seabird colonies. 
  • Leave Shetland and sail south through the Fair Isle Channel towards Orkney.

Days 5 & 6

Day 5: Orkney

  • Sailed south and in the early morning reach the town of Kirkwall on the windy Orkney Islands, off mainland Scotland. Orkney, in Norse, means 'islands of seals' and, like the other islands in the North Atlantic, Orkney has a rich Viking history.
  • Kirkwall is the capital of Orkney. Orkney has a fascinating history and contains one of the highest concentrations of Stone Age remains anywhere in the world. preserved in the soft sands of the island. 
  • Unlike mainland Scotland, Orkney and neighbouring Shetland were settled by Norse settlers and were part of the Kingdom of Norway until the late 1400s; the Norse heritage is evident almost everywhere in the city, from the magnificent St. Magnus Cathedral to the world-famous Highland Park distillery.
  • Optional excursion 'Highlights of Orkney' (not included in the price of the trip): Depart Kirkwall and head west to Mainland, Orkney's largest island. Along the way you pass through rolling landscapes and enter the Neolithic Heartland of Orkney, an area declared a World Heritage Site for its wealth of prehistoric archaeology. Continue on to the pretty fishing village of Stromness. Finally, return to the coach and continue the circular route following the coastline of Scapa Flow, a famous British naval base in both world wars. For guests wishing to stay in Kirkwall, a short walking tour of the town will be organised, passing St. Magnus Cathedral and the picturesque ruins of Bishop's and Earl's Palace.
  • Depart south for Aberdeen.

Day 6: Aberdeen

  •  The captain will take the ship south along the east coast of Scotland to Aberdeen, Scotland's third largest city. Bid farewell to the crew and fellow passengers on board the Ocean Albatros before departing.
