Cruise Day 2: Glasgow (Greenock), Scotland (Friday: May 17, 2019/ 9:00am - 5:00pm)
Glasgow is a port city on the River Clyde in Scotland's western Lowlands. It's famed for its Victorian and art nouveau architecture, a rich legacy of the city's 18th–20th-century prosperity due to trade and shipbuilding. Thirty minutes away is Stirling, a market town, surrounded by rich farmland, grew up connecting the royal citadel, the medieval old town with its merchants and tradesmen, the bridge and the port.
Shore Excursion: Stirling Castle - Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park (7 hours) - Today begins with a short ride through the rugged Scottish countryside to Stirling and our first sterling castlestop. Stirling Castle, a critical medieval stronghold and former residence of Scottish royals including Mary, Queen of Scots. Visit the castle where a number of Scottish Kings and Queens have been baptized, crowned, or died in or near Stirling Castle. At least one King was murdered nearby: while another committed murder within its walls. Stand in the Great Hall, the largest medieval banqueting hall ever built in Scotland and Imagine the great banquets and battles that took place around the castle as you look towards the southern Highlands and the Ochil Hills.
Luss ScotlandThen we continue to Doune Castle for another unique photo opportunity. Afterwards we travel into the wild country, coursing though rolling hills and green pastures to Luss, a village on the west bank of Loch Lomond within the Trossachs National Park. As we drive through the Highlands, lookout for the ‘wee hairy coos’ (cattle) as our expert guide narrates our trip through Trossachs National Park. Stroll on the banks of this tranquil lake and buy yourself a nip of local whisky or grab some lunch before heading back towards Glasgow.

 

Cruise Day 3 Day At Sea (Saturday: May 18, 2019)
Enjoy our day at sea as we still have lots more to see and do!

 

Cruise Day 4: Reykjavik, Iceland (Sunday: May 19, 2019 / 1:00pm - )
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.
Included Shore Excursion - Grand Circle Tour (8 hours) - Our full day excursion inlcudes many of the scenic Golden Circle Geysirnatural wonders for which Iceland is justly renowned, such as Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir hot springs and Thingvellir National Park. We start with the highland plateau of Hellisheiði, large lava fields and steaming valleys then pass the greenhouse town of Hveragerði. Gain a unique insight into the processes of greenhouse horticulture and the use of geothermal heating with a visit to Friðheimar. Enjoy the special experience of entering a greenhouse with its fragrant tomato plants – and then sitting down to a feast of the famous and delicious Friðheimar tomato soup with freshly baked bread – with tomato plants all around. You might even like to raise a glass of tomato schnapps
Then we reach the geothermal active valley of Haukadalur which contains the geysers Geysir and Strokkur. Explore this otherworldly geothermal field covered with multicolored pools of water where hot springs are in abundance, geysers erupt and pools of mud bubble. Strokkur, the Great Geysir's little brother, is spouting to a height of about 82 ft and erupts in 5-7 minute intervals.
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. The Great Atlantic rift is clearly visible; a rift that is slowly pulling Iceland apart along tectonic plates and you can literally walk between the American and Eurasian continental plates.

 

Cruise Day 5: Reykjavik, Iceland (Monday: May 20, 2019 / - 3:00pm )
Reykjavik, Iceland’s coastal capital, is renowned for the late-night clubs and bars in its compact center. It's home to the National and Saga museums, tracing Iceland’s Viking history. The striking concrete Hallgrimskirkja church and rotating Perlan glass dome offer sweeping views of the sea and nearby hills. Exemplifying the island’s dramatic landscape is the volcanic setting of the geothermal Blue Lagoon spa.

blue lagoonThe Blue Lagoon is a natural geothermal pool in the middle of a large and dramatic lava field and an oasis that owes its existence to a nearby geothermal power plant, looming large over the aqua tinted waters. Enjoy a refreshing bath or swim in the inviting, rejuvenating and pleasantly warm mineral-rich water (37°C-39°C/98-102°F), reputed for its healing properties. An indoor pool and geothermal sauna are also on the site. Bathing in this surreal environment is a unique experience no one should miss. The Blue Lagoon's warm water and natural active ingredients like mineral salts, silica and blue green algae help you relax.
