This fabulously immersive optional tour begins with some time to peruse the Globe Exhibition at your leisure, before the Globe’s expert guides explain the intricacies and significance of Elizabethan costume as well as its impact on society. You will also learn some period housekeeping tips and have the opportunity to dress up as a character from a Shakespearean play.

    Your step back into history continues with a guided walking tour of the area, where the famous sights and landmarks include the first theatre ever constructed on Bankside in 1587, the Rose, which predates Shakespeare’s original Globe by twelve years. The Rose is the only Elizabethan Playhouse to be excavated on a huge scale, having been the subject of thorough investigation by archaeologists in 1989. You’ll also be able to marvel at the original site of Shakespeare’s Globe, which provided crucial archaeological evidence for the reconstructed building you will see today.

    Thanks to the decimation caused by the Great Fire of London in 1666, the Globe is now the only building in the city to have a thatched roof. During your tour inside the theatre your guide will describe how its modern patrons fought to keep the building as authentic as possible, while also describing the reconstruction process.

This is truly a place where history, pageantry and tradition mix with the modern, eccentric and avant-garde, offering something for everyone.

    Boarding in front of the Tower of London, directly opposite the iconic Tower Bridge, your comfortable boat then cruises westwards beneath many of the capital’s bridges, including the current London Bridge, of which there have been several incarnations. Following the meandering river for an hour or so, you will see the London Eye on the South Bank, the neo-Gothic Houses of Parliament and Elizabeth Clock Tower, home of the famous “Big Ben” bell, and Westminster Abbey, where a long lineage of royals have been married or crowned.

    Returning to Tower Bridge, your vessel will increase in speed and proceed through the lesser known parts of London, where the twists and turns of the River Thames will take you past the maritime metropolis of Greenwich, through the Tobacco Docks and past the former Millennium Dome, now the 02 Arena. This concluding part of your journey is a perfect of example of London’s international maritime history, and as you pass under the Emirate’s Skyline, a further example of the city’s exciting future.

    For a wonderful insight into the lives and history of the people of Lerwick, take a step back in time on this walking tour that will take you through the colourful and cosmopolitan history of this historic port.

    Starting from Victoria Pier, in the heart of the Old Town, you will be transported through the centuries with lively tales of Lerwick's growth, merchant trading, fishing and shipping fleets, and smugglers. Visit the Old Tollbooth, built in 1770 and recently restored; it is used today as the RNLI station. Then see one of Shetland’s famous Lodberries – houses and warehouses on piers that were designed to allow the loading and unloading of goods from boats. In the 18th century, when Lerwick was the premier herring town in Northern Europe, these unique structures would have filled the shoreline. Today, we will visit one of the most picturesque left in the town, with its thick sea-battered walls, slipway, pier and fish-drying shed.

    You will then continue along the Hillhead to see the town’s narrow lanes (or ‘closses’) which run down to the waterfront and, subject to availability, visit Lerwick Town Hall, built in 1883, with its beautiful stained glass windows representing a pictorial narrative of Shetland’s history since Viking times.

    Finally, you will visit the Shetland Museum to learn more about the island’s heritage and culture. This award-winning museum has over 3,000 artefacts on two floors featuring a wealth of beautifully displayed exhibits, making it a visit not to be missed.

    On arrival in Scalloway, we will stop to visit the now roofless castle, which was built around 1600 by the tyrant Earl Patrick Stewart, who used forced labour to build his residence and was executed in Edinburgh in 1615. You will then visit the fascinating local museum, which has a special display devoted to the “Shetland Bus” boats which travelled between Shetland and Norway to help the Norwegian Resistance during World War II. Or if you prefer, you may wander through Scalloway’s Main Street and view the waterfront at your leisure.

    Leaving Scalloway, we will travel through the Tingwall Valley, with its Norse heritage, pausing for a photo stop to view a small herd of Shetland ponies, hearing more of Shetland`s culture and heritage from our experienced local guide, on our way back to Lerwick.

    The remarkable archaeological site of Jarlshof, located near Shetland’s southern tip, was first uncovered by a violent storm in the winter of 1896/7, revealing an extraordinary settlement embracing at least 5,000 years of human history. The site contains a remarkable sequence of stone structures – late Neolithic houses, a Bronze-Age village, an Iron-Age broch or circular stone tower, wheelhouses, several Norse longhouses, a medieval farmstead, and the 16th-century laird’s house, which our guide will take you around.

    On the way to Jarlshof we shall also pass through the rural townships of Fladdabister and, conditions permitting, pause to admire the view of the magnificent Mousa Broch, the tallest and best preserved broch in the world. We will then continue south down the west coast of the island, passing St Ninian’s Isle, where the famous Pictish horde of silver dating from the 9th century was found in 1958.

    Following your tour of the Shetland’s the best known prehistoric archaeological site, we will return to Lerwick, with your guide explaining more about the islands as we look out for Shetland’s famous ponies grazing in the grasslands of the island.

    Iceland’s unique landscape has been shaped by its extraordinary geothermal and volcanic activity. This tour takes us to some of the country’s geological wonders and also includes a visit to a museum dedicated to the nation’s Viking history.

    Viking World is home to the Íslendingur, or Icelander – an exact replica of the archeologically significant Gokstad ship, which was discovered and excavated in Norway almost completely intact, in 1882. In 2000 the Íslendingur sailed across the Atlantic to Newfoundland and since 2008 has been on permanent display at the museum. During our guided tour you will also get to see the Viking Millennium Exhibition which details the history of ancient Norse exploration into unknown lands.

    Among the natural wonders you will see are Lake Kleifarvatn, the largest lake on the Reykjanes Peninsula, which is fed entirely by ground water, as well as the bubbling mud-pots and fumaroles of Krýsuvík, where the experience is made otherworldly by incredible colours, steam rising from the earth and the loud hissing of air.

Thingvellir is the only place in the world where any part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, separating the Eurasian and North American plates, is above sea-level.

    As well as being geologically important, Thingvellir is also where some of the country’s most important historical events have unfolded, making it a sacred place to the people of Iceland. This was where the settlers of Iceland first became a unified nation when its legislative parliament, the Althing, was founded there in the year 930.

    In a country renowned for its numerous waterfalls, the Gullfoss Waterfall, or “Golden Waterfall”, is certainly the most famous. Here, a huge amount of water can be seen cascading down the rocks into a deep ravine, creating a powerful spectacle.

    Finally, the last of the “big three” attractions of the day will be the Geysir geothermal area, from where the word “geyser” originates. Strokkur is an explosive geyser that erupts every few minutes and is another of Iceland’s world famous landmarks.

    Then finally, back in Reykjavík, there will just be time for one last stop at the Perlan, or the Pearl, which has a viewing deck offering great panoramic views over Reykjavik, perfect for taking photos or just relaxing and enjoying the view.

    It’s not hard to see why National Geographic named the healing, tranquil waters of the Blue Lagoon one of the top 25 wonders in the world, or why in recent years it has become the most popular attraction in Iceland.

    The Blue Lagoon owes its existence to a nearby geothermal power plant that makes use of geothermal seawater replenished every 40 hours from a mile beneath the earth’s surface. The water is warm, mineral rich and is known to soothe and rejuvenate the skin. The aquamarine colour of the water, the steam and the lava landscape surrounding the Lagoon combine to create a unique and memorable atmosphere.

    Our route to this wonderful location takes us through the beautiful lava fields of the Reykjanes peninsula, an otherworldly landscape seemingly in the middle of nowhere. Once there, you will be able to relax in the waters and feel reinvigorated.

    The facilities at the Blue Lagoon include a tax-free shop – with a range of mineral-rich Blue Lagoon skin products – a café and restaurant, and excellent changing-room facilities. The Blue Lagoon spa is completely powered by clean geothermal energy and is environmentally certified.

    Looking out over the Denmark Strait towards Greenland on the edge of the Arctic Circle, Hornstrandir is Iceland’s most northern peninsula. In 1975 it became a designated Nature Reserve and is a popular destination for those seeking a truly authentic wilderness experience.

    Its capital is the tiny village of Hesteyri, which has remained largely untouched since the 1950s, when the last remaining farmers decided to abandon their homes and return to the mainland. Some of their descendants still make use of these old properties as holiday cabins, but on the whole Hesteyri has become something of a time capsule and is notable for never having seen any motor vehicles.

    During the crossing by boat from Isafjordur you will enjoy some spectacular views of the glacial fjords before stepping ashore on the beach for a short guided walk around the village and its surroundings. During your time on Hornstrandir you may be lucky enough to spot some of the indigenous fauna, which consists mostly of arctic foxes, nesting birds and seals. Following the walk, traditional Icelandic refreshments will be served inside the old doctor’s house at Hesteyri, where your guide will be able to explain more about the history of the island. The tour will then return to Isafjordur in good time for dinner on-board Aegean Odyssey.

    Bolungarvík and Ósvör Fisherman’s Hut is our first destination. This museum is housed in a series of traditional turf-and-stone shacks where the guide, dressed in a typical sheepskin outfit, will explain the history of the area and local methods for salting fish.

    Not far from the museum is the church of Hólskirkja or “the church on the hill”, built in 1908 and containing several interesting pieces, including two grand bells used to drive away the phantoms that supposedly still reside on the nearby heath.

    Tungudalur Valley is home to a beautiful waterfall and meadow where we will stop for some photo opportunities on our way to the town of Ísafjörður, the largest settlement in the Westfjords and one of the main cultural and trading centres in Iceland.

    After a leisurely stroll around the town’s historic buildings, our last destination will be the Maritime Museum, which features an array of artefacts and information about the region’s fishing industry throughout the centuries.

    The island is home to Iceland’s oldest windmill, which was built in 1840 and used for the grinding of wheat imported from Denmark. Despite being decommissioned in 1917 the windmill has been carefully maintained – as has another extraordinary attraction, a two hundred-year-old, eight-oared rowing boat, which is still being used to ferry sheep to the mainland today.

     Many of the houses on Vigur date back to the last century, including Viktoria House, which was erected in 1862 from pre-cut Norwegian wood and subsequently restored in 1993 by the National Museum of Iceland. Another notable house was built in 1884 by a young priest, the descendants of whom still populate the island.

    After finishing the tour, prior to returning to the mainland, coffee and cakes will then be served in a mid-19th century cowshed that has been restored into a beautiful and welcoming reception area.

    Lake Mývatn is a magical location that is home to tens of thousands of birds, including, most notably, thirteen species of ducks. The area surrounding Mývatn is of tremendous geological interest and is one of the few places in the world where Marimo, also known as Cladophora ball, grows.

    The bubbling mud-pots and fumaroles of Námaskarð are a striking geothermal field full of sulphur deposits and boiling springs. With its incredible colours, vents blasting steam from the earth and the loud popping of air bubbles in the mud-pots, the experience is truly otherworldly.

    A short ride onwards is the mystical lava landscape of Dimmuborgir, a dramatic place where the strange formations of volcanic rock have provided inspiration for many Icelandic folktales. The name itself means “dark fortress”, an appropriately mystical epithet for this peculiar terrain.

    Finally, before heading back to Akureyri, we will visit the pseudo-craters of Skútustaðir, formed by explosions of gas during the cooling of boiling lava over the wetlands near the lake. These craters are a popular site for birdwatchers and are protected as a natural conservation area.

Indeed, due to its wide-open bay and rich marine life, there is a higher chance of spotting these incredible marine mammals in Húsavík than anywhere else in Iceland.

    Before heading onto the water, we will have time to visit the Húsavík Whale Museum for more information on the history, biology and habitat of these remarkable creatures. This popular non-profit attraction opened in 1997 as a trial exhibition, but has since been transferred to a permanent location inside an old slaughterhouse, providing 1,600 square metres of space for its displays, including the complete skeletons of several species of whale.

    After finishing at the Museum, we will join our friendly whale-spotting crew who will be able to provide many more details on the various species of whales and dolphins that we hope to be able to spot during our boat trip into the wide waters of Skjálfandi Bay. Like all wild-nature experiences, sightings cannot be guaranteed, but given Húsavík’s reputation, the potential here is always excellent.

    Construction of the Cathedral began in the late-thirteenth century, using a Gothic architectural style that was common to West Norwegian church-building of the period. Its lack of roof once suggested that it was never completed, but recent research has shown that it was likely to have been roofed at some point after all.

    Until the island’s Catholic diocese was abolished, Kirkjubour was also the site of the Bishop’s palace, but in the centuries since its demise, the remaining foundations have provided the wide stone base for the Roykstovan, a farmstead home to the same Faroese family for seventeen generations.

    The rest of this large building was constructed from logs believed to have drifted to the island from Norway some 700 years ago, while its turf roof and interior reflect the traditional lifestyle of a Faroese farm.

    Looking out from Kirkjubour, to the west of the island, we will also have magnificent views of Koltur, Hestur, Sandoy and Vagar, on our way to and from this important historical site.

    Torshavn

    10 Aug Torshavn, Faroe Islands
    Half Day Walking over cobblestones, uneven or slippery surfaces
    The origins of Torshavn can be traced back to approximately AD850, when it first became the site of a Viking “Ting”, a term that has etymological connections with the Scandinavian “Althing” or “Thing” and the British “Husting”, denoting the site of a parliamentary gathering.

    The Viking Thing was followed by a marketplace and later a town. When free trade came to the Faroe Islands in 1856, the islands were finally opened up to the rest of the world, marking the beginning of a transformation in Tórshavn’s economy. Today it is one of the smallest and most pleasant capital cities in the world.

    This tour will take you to a scenic viewpoint overlooking the city, before a visit to the Historical Museum to learn more about the Faroes over the last millennium, from Viking to modern times.

    You will also take a stroll around the beautiful open-air museum "Hoyviksgardur" which includes a traditional farmhouse and outbuildings, before taking a walk through the colourful warehouses, 18th century cathedral and iconic turf-roofed homes of the old town, Tinganes.

    Highlights of Orkney

    11 Aug Kirkwall, Orkney Islands, United Kingdom
    Half Day
    Your tour begins with a scenic drive through the countryside of Orkney’s largest island to one of its most iconic sights, the mysterious Ring of Brodgar, a Neolithic henge and stone circle that was once part of a wider prehistoric ritual complex. A short distance to the east of the Brodgar ring is the solitary standing stone now known as the Comet Stone.

A short distance to the east of the Brodgar ring is the solitary standing stone now known as the Comet Stone.

    After admiring these ancient stones, your tour will continue to the charming fishing village of Stromness, where you will have some free time to stroll through the pretty flagstone streets and perhaps shop for souvenirs. Stromness boasts some lovely craft shops selling an array of local knitwear, pottery and artwork. It is also home to an internationally renowned free art museum and gallery, the Pier Arts Centre, which houses a permanent collection of 20th-century art donated by the author, peace activist and philanthropist Margaret Gardiner in 1979.

    Your return route to Aegean Odyssey follows the coastline of Scapa Flow. Some months after the end of the Great War, it was here that Germany’s entire High Seas Fleet was dramatically scuttled by order of its commander, Admiral Ludwig von Reuter, while being held in internment. Scapa Flow was also a vital British naval base during World War II and has some dramatic wrecks that are visible above the water.

    To the west of Kirkwall, on Orkney’s largest island, the gentle rolling landscape gives way to Mainland’s Neolithic heartland as you travel into an area with a wealth of pre-historic archaeology that has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Passing the Standing Stones of Stenness, we will stop at the Ring of Brodgar – a huge ceremonial circle of stones dating back almost 5,000 years – before continuing to the similarly ancient village of Skara Brae, which was occupied from roughly 3180 BC to about 2500 BC.

    Here you will see the remarkable dwellings that were revealed from beneath sand dunes by storms only 150 years-ago. There are eight in all, making it the most complete Neolithic village in Europe that also has a beautifully interpreted visitor centre for you to explore.

    Alive with culture and history, the capital of Scotland is a thriving UNESCO World Heritage Site. This walking tour of the Royal Mile, Edinburgh's oldest and most historic street, will take you from the Edinburgh Castle Esplanade to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, a route rich with medieval buildings, statues and monuments lining both sides of the street.

    The city's dominant landmark is the 12th-century castle atop its rocky, extinct volcanic perch, which affords magnificent views of the city. From here we will walk to Castle Hill, which has a unique collection of ruins, before continuing down Royal Mile to see beautiful Gladstone's Land, a superb example of early 17th-century architecture featuring an outside staircase, arcaded ground floor, oak shutters, leaded glass windows and crow-stepped gables.

    The charming Lady Stair's House, also constructed in the 17th century, was once a private home, but today houses a literary museum devoted to the works of Robert Burns, Sir Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson.

    We will then walk through the elegant district of Cannongate, with its quaint Tollbooth that is now a museum detailing life in 18th-century Edinburgh. The design on this building has a delightful series of small, delicate turrets. Finally, standing proudly at the end of Royal Mile, is the magnificent Palace of Holyroodhouse, the official residence of Her Majesty the Queen while in Scotland. This ornate, baroque palace is famously known as the home of Mary Queen of Scots and within its walls many dramatic episodes of her turbulent reign unfolded.

    MV AEGEAN ODYSSEY

    There is a particular pleasure that comes with cruising aboard a smaller ship. Hosting an average of just 350 passengers, Aegean Odyssey is no ‘floating city’. She is small enough to sail rivers and put into the more characterful ports inaccessible to the ‘mega-ships’, the service is more personal and you get plenty of time to interact with the onboard experts.

    Yet on the other hand, she is large enough to offer a superb selection of amenities, including two dining venues, several comfortable lounges and bars, a relaxing spa centre and well-stocked library. Cabins are spacious, modern and intelligently designed, and 39 cabins across a range of categories (including balcony) are set aside for solo travellers at low supplement.
