Join your fellow Princetonians for a unique seven-night journey to Scotland’s rarely visited Orkney and Shetland Islands and Norway’s majestic fjords.
Cruise from Glasgow, Scotland, to Bergen, Norway, following the path of Viking explorers. Aboard the five-star Le Champlain, voyage through the spectacular landscapes and dramatic coastlines of this seafaring region steeped in history and cultural richness. Enjoy a full-day excursion into the Scottish Highlands, with visits to Fort William, Glenfinnan and Glencoe. Then travel northwest to the Isle of Skye, home to some of Scotland's most iconic landscapes. See the Orkney Islands’ Neolithic monuments—the Ring of Brodgar and Skara Brae, both UNESCO World Heritage sites—and the Shetland Islands’ 5000-year-old prehistoric site of Jarlshof. Cross the sea to Norway and experience a specially arranged ride on the Flåm Railway, one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys. End your adventure in the picturesque town of Bergen.
Pre-and post-cruise extensions will be available in both Scotland and Norway for those wanting to take a deeper dive into these awe-inspiring countries. Please note: Princeton travelers will be joined by participants from like-minded institutions.
