June 9 to 22, 2022

Cruise from northern Scotland up the spectacular coast of Norway and into the Arctic Circle on the Hebridean Sky with faculty leader Scott Pearson.

Isolated and ironclad. In the Shetland Islands, meet the locals who call these remote islands home and view the remarkable archaeological site of Jarlshof, whose remains date from 2500 BCE to the 17th century. Lofty Lofotens. Be awed by majestic mountains ascending dramatically from the shores of the breathtaking Lofoten Islands. Land of the midnight sun. Delight in long, midsummer days when fjord-side towns bathe in sunlight around the clock and flowers carpet the countryside. On the Runde. Watch huge colonies of seabirds—fulmars and puffins, kittiwakes and gannets—nesting on the cliffs of the tiny Norwegian island of Runde.
