Overview


If you’re looking for a short summer break, this very special sailing might be the perfect getaway. In less than a week you can discover the scenic highlights of two beautiful Scottish islands and go in search of a few Norwegian wonders before spending a relaxing day at sea aboard Balmoral. The Scottish leg of this highly rewarding escape begins with a call into Kirkwall. From the capital of the Orkneys you can explore the islands’ rugged untouched landscapes; encounter an abundance of wonderful wildlife; or even to take a short journey to Skara Brae and marvel at the remarkably well-preserved, 5,000-year-old Neolithic structures. Later in the evening you’ll pass by the Old Man of Hoy, taking in views of this incredible 450ft sea stack from the comfort of your ship. In the picturesque Shetlands, some of Scotland’s most spectacular coastal scenery is yours to discover on a tour to Northmavine from Lerwick. Or you could venture to the dramatic cliffs of Sumburgh Head, one of the best places on earth to watch seabirds such as puffins, fulmars and guillemots up-close. You will enjoy a taste of Norway with a full day in the vibrant, attraction-packed city of Bergen. Within the city you’ll have time to explore the UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf, sample the hustle and bustle of the busy fish market and visit the Troldhaugen Museum, the former home of the great Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg. Riding the funicular railway to the top of Mount Fløyen is a must too, to take in stunning views of the city and the surrounding fjords. Alternatively you have the opportunity to join an unforgettable tour to see the breathtaking Tvinde Waterfall and board the world-famous Flåmsbana Railway for an incredible journey high into some of fjordland Norway’s most spectacular mountains.
