Stones of StennessThis starkly beautiful island holds many ancient treasures like the mysterious Standing Stones of Stenness and the 5,000-year-old village of Skara Brae. Kirkwall, the capital of Orkney, for centuries was the capital of the Norse-held Nordreyjar – the Northern Isles. But that ended in 1469 when Christian I of Norway failed to pay the dowry promised to his son-in-law.
Shore Excursion: Island Tour (4 hours) - Travel through gentle rolling landscape into the Neolithic Heartland of Orkney; a World Heritage Site due to its wealth of pre-orkney islandhistoric archaeology. Stop for photos at the Standing Stones of Stenness, and at the Ring of Brodgar, a ceremonial circle of stones dating back almost 5000 years. We continue on to the 5000-year-old village of Skara Brae to see the remarkable dwellings revealed from beneath the sand dunes. Also visit the nearby manor house of Skaill House, built in 1620 on top of an ancient graveyard before we continue our circular route and follow the coastline of Scapa Flow.
In Kirkwell we will visit both The Bishop’s and The Earl’s Palaces. The ancient Bishop's palace has a checkered history and little of the first-floor hall remains, but the ground level is largely intact. The Earl's palace was built around 1606 and it was declared at his trial that he used slave labor to build.

Cruise Day 7: Reykjavik, Iceland (Friday:August 21, 2021 / - 5:00pm)
There's a good reason that Iceland is considered a photographer's dream destination. Its terrain is visually stunning, offering views of lava flows, hot springs, unspoiled nature – and colorful, fascinating cities like Reykjavik. The world's most northerly capital brings together quaint villages, exciting museums, a flourishing music scene and restaurants that rival Europe's finest.

Explore this otherworldly geothermal field covered with multicolored pools of water where hot springs are in abundance, geysers erupt and pools of mud bubble.

gullfoss waterfallOne of the Golden Circles many highlights is the Gullfoss waterfall, the queen of Iceland's waterfalls. We will walk around the Falls, where the river Hvitá tumbles 105 ft in a double cascade. When the sun is shining, we're likely to see a rainbow through the massive spray that forms.
Finally, but no less spectacular is a visit to the Þingvellir National Park (Thingvellir), a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stroll around the country's most sacred site, home of the oldest existing parliament in the world, the Alþingi. Thingvellir, a place of fascinating natural beauty, is set on a vast plain flanked by large fissures, right in Iceland's largest lake, Thingvallavatn.

Cruise Day 9: Prins Christian Sound (Cruise) (Monday: August 23, 2021)
Prince Christian Sound The transit of the Prince Christian Sound is one of the highlights of cruising Greenland. A journey along the passage offers an up-close look at glaciers, icebergs towering over the narrow channel with their spires and jagged ridges. The 66-mile sound seperates the mainland and Cape Farewell Archipelago, islands under the southern edge of the massive Greenland Ice Sheet, which covers 80 percent of the island. The sound is narrow, sometimes as little as 1500 feet across, and numerous glaciers reach the sea on its shores, calving icebergs into the sound. High, barren and sharply defined peaks tower on both sides. The remote route is accessible by ship only during the summer months, when warmer temperatures reduce the chance of ice blockages around the entrance. Aappilattoq, an Inuit town with about 100 residents, is the only settlement and the only other sign of a human presence is a remote weather station constructed by the United States during the Cold War.

 

Cruise Day 10: Qaqortoq, Greenland 
qaqortoq greenlandQaqortoq is a town in southern Greenland, set within a system of fjords. The town center is home to 18th-century colonial buildings and a landmark fountain.

Qaqortoq is to be explored by foot, and when strolling through the colourful town, be attentive of stone carvings, made by the famous south greenlandic artist Aka Høegh and fellow Nordic artists. Explore ancient inuit culture and vanished ages at the local museum of Qaqortoq. From Lake Tasersuaq, trails lead through rugged mountains to the old Norse settlement of Igaliku. To the southeast, the hot springs at Uunartoq sit beside a bay dotted with icebergs.
Tasersuaq lakeIncluded Shore Excursion: Guided Landscape Hike (2 hours) - Qaqortoq is best seen on foot and our local guide will show us the beautiful Greenland landscape. Qaqortoq is heavily vegetated, as the arctic sun is warmer, down south. View the colorful plains and mountains as we walk near lake Tasersuaq, located right outside the town. “Storesøen” means “the great lake” in Greenlandic and it does play a vital part in everyday life of the locals in Qaqortoq. It is a great place to fish Arctic char, a wonderful lake for swimming or kayaking, and the source of the tap water in Qaqortoq.
