In the Wake of Vikings

Join Le Laperouse on this fantastic adventure starting in Reykjavik, boasting real cultural riches, particularly in contemporary art. Then discover Heimaey, the only inhabited island in the Westmann Islands, and admire its volcanoes and its almost-desert like landscapes. Visit Seydisfjordur, one of the most picturesque ports in the country and the gateway to a 1250-hectare nature reserve that is home to a multitude of birds. Next reach Kirkwall, the capital of the Orkney Islands off the coast of Scotland, home to sea birds, gannets, shags, gray petrels, and many other animals. Then head to the Shetland Islands and the port of Lerwick. This port is well known because just a few kilometers inland lie the remarkable ruins of Scalloway Castle, built in 1600.
