Join VMFA for this custom-designed, seven-night journey to Norway’s majestic fjords and Scotland’s Orkney and Shetland Islands. Cruise from Bergen, Norway, to Glasgow, Scotland, aboard the chartered, Five-Star small ship Le Dumont-d’Urville. Travel in the wake of Viking explorers, cruising into ports accessible only by small ship. Ride Norway’s Flåm Railway, one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys, and enjoy a full-day excursion into the Scottish Highlands. Visit Neolithic Orkney—including a special presentation by the Ness of Brodgar archaeological site director and head archaeologist, Nick Card—and tour Bergen’s UNESCO-inscribed Bryggen. Two optional extensions are available: Norway/Copenhagen pre-trip, and Edinburgh/Glasgow post-trip.
