Shore excursion in each port of call + transfers included


In alliance with Smithsonian Journeys.

This cruise is part of a collection of PONANT voyages that are specially tailored for English-speaking travellers who want to engage with the world. In addition to the usual elements of the PONANT experience, the listed price for these voyages includes transfers to and from the ship, talks and discussions aboard ship by world class experts, and a shore excursion or activity in each port of call that encourages guests to embrace the sights, sounds, tastes, and smells of the local environment and culture. 

Join PONANT aboard Le Dumont-d'Urville for a 10-day cruise on an exceptional itinerary to discover the rugged landscapes of the Scottish Isles and the beauty of the Norwegian fjords.  

Begin your voyage in Glasgow, Scotland's cultural capital with a rich artistic and architectural heritage. 

Your ship will first sail to Fort William, from where you can immerse yourself in local lore during a cruise of fabled Loch Ness or take a tour and enjoy a dram of scotch whisky at a local distillery. 

From Kyle of Lochalsh, spend a day including the unparalleled Isle of Skye. Not to be missed on the mainland is Eilean Donan, one of the most recognisable castles in the world and an iconic symbol of Scotland. 

Your ship sails next towards Kirkwall, capital of Orkney, where numerous seabirds, such as gannets and European shags, take residence. The Standing Stones of Stenness, built around 5,400 years ago, are a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.  

Le Dumont-d’Urville  then sails for Lerwick, the main port in the Shetland Islands. Nearby is the Jarlshof prehistoric and Norse settlement, where Neolithic people first settled more than 4,000 years ago – it is one of the most spectacular excavated sites in the British Isles. 

Next cross the North Sea and sail towards Alesund, famous for the art nouveau architectural style in which its downtown was rebuilt after a terrible fire in 1904. Here you will also find the Atlantic Ocean Park, a unique aquarium featuring marine life found along Norway’s Atlantic coast. 

Traverse the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Geirangerfjord to Geiranger and explore the fjord region overland – including a stop at the Jostedal Glacier National Park Centre – before rejoining your ship in Hellesylt. Alternatively, venture into the mountains to sample goatmilk cheeses and caramels at a local farm. 

Continue to Olden. From this small and charming village, located a few miles from Jostedalsbreen National Park, home to one of the last ice caps in Europe, admire the magnificent Briksdal Glacier. 

End your voyage in Flåm where you will board the Flåm Railway to take a beautiful train journey high into the mountains of western Norway. Stunning rivers, waterfalls and cultural landscapes will be found around every bend. 

You will disembark in Bergen, famous for its Hanseatic wharf, Bryggen, a UNESCO World Heritage site that still carries traces of the rich historic past of the city founded by the Vikings.
