Spectacular Northern Islands

This glorious summertime cruise from Belfast features an unforgettable circumnavigation of the stunning Land of Fire and Ice, sailing through pristine waters, together with two fascinating calls at the Faroe Islands, a birdwatcher’s paradise.

Board Magellan at Belfast and sail north to Iceland. Your first Icelandic port-of-call is the fascinating and welcoming Reykjavík, the world’s most northerly capital, with its pretty painted wooden buildings.

Magellan now turns south, and sails to the Faroe Islands, stopping first at Klaksvík, a picturesque fishing town that sits on a steep-sided bay. An overnight stay at exquisite toytown capital Tórshavn completes this excellent cruise.
