Breathtaking Volcanoes & Glaciers
This wonderful cruise aboard Astoria from Poole offers you the chance to discover Reykjavik, the fascinating capital of Iceland, and also to explore the remote island outposts of Orkney, Shetland and the Faroes, and visit vibrant Belfast and historic Dunkirk.
Your first call, in Belfast, give you the opportunity to explore the city's regenerated harbourside Titanic Quarter. From here Astoria turns north to cruise through waters teeming with marine life to colourful Reykjavik. Step ashore to wander the city and perhaps to head inland and watch the night skies for signs of the mysterious Aurora Borealis. Astoria will spend the night and better part of two days here, giving you plenty of time to explore. Calls in the tiny Faroes-Island capital, Torshavn, Shetland’s Lerwick and rugged Kirkwall on Orkney, reveal glorious landscapes filled with echoes of ancient legends, before your final stop - the French Channel port of Dunkirk.
