You may see plovers, swans, snipes, and ashen and crimson herons. Depending on the season, you may even observe hundreds of wild geese making their migration to Spain.

Mont St. Michel is considered one of the great religious sites in all of Europe and is often compared to St. Peter’s, Chartres, and Durham. First built following the appearance of Archangel Michael to the Bishop of Avranches, the abbey is constructed at the summit of an immense granite precipice 250 feet above the sea – a monument to the heyday of Norman power and influence in the world. Mont St. Michel makes its strongest impression when seen from a distance, on the approach from a 5-mile long causeway at Pontorson where Mont St. Michel joins the mainland.  Once at the abbey, your guided tour on foot will involve numerous stairs and steep paths – yet you are rewarded with magnificent views at every juncture. You’ll have free time to stroll the labyrinth of streets, browse the shops, and take in this magnificent architectural achievement. Following your exploration, return to the yacht along the coastal road, passing small towns and traditional fishing harbors along the way. 

Please note: Inside the abbey, proper attire is required (no shorts or bare shoulders) and flash photography is not permitted. Due to its great popularity large crowds of visitors must be expected at the site. This tour requires heavy walking; up and downhill and on cobblestones. To reach the very top takes climbing between 197-350 steps.  Due to new regulations motor coaches are no longer allowed to enter Mont St. Michel.  There is a 20-30 minute from the parking lot to the shuttle bus that will take you to Mont St. Michel.

Portrush, Headlands, House, & Temples
There cannot be a more wild and dramatic headland in Northern Ireland than the Downhill Demesne. With fabulous views that stretch over the entire north coast of Ireland and open windswept cliff-top walks it is not surprising that the Demesne is part of the Binevenagh Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a well-known icon. You will see this for yourself. At the heart of the Demesne is the house, which was one of the most renowned in Ireland, containing treasures from throughout Europe. Unfortunately, it is now in ruins. However, its setting and architecture give more than a hint of its former glory. You will see the mausoleum, the Lion’s Gate, which stands beside the remains of a double-walled garden with the dove cote and ice house still intact, and the Bishop’s Gate, a well-known feature with its Gothic gate lodge and garden. Perched on the edge of cliffs is the most spectacular of the buildings, the Mussenden Temple, built as a library and modeled on the Temple of Vesta in Italy. Over the years the erosion of the cliff face at Downhill has brought Mussenden Temple ever closer to the edge. In 1997 The National Trust carried out cliff stabilization work to prevent the loss of the building. At the completion of your tour you will depart for your short return drive to Portrush and your awaiting yacht.

Geiranger: Nordic Walking
Nordic walking began as a summer training exercise for serious ”cross-country” skiers. Fitness walkers in Europe adopted Nordic walking as a time-efficient, low- stress, total body workout and popularity is growing worldwide. Today,you will be invited on this invigorating and exciting walking excursion through the beautiful setting of Geiranger.   You will meet the expert guide at the pier where a briefing on Nordic walking will take place, along with specially designed poles to work the upper body while you walk. Like cross-country skiing, the poles are used by the arms to match each step you take. Beginning the walk, proceed at a casual walking speed, but experience a full body workout as the walking poles raise the heart rate and exercise the arms.  You will tour the hills and admire the mountain sides of Geiranger. Proceed uphill and over uneven terrain; however, the strenuous walk allows for wonderful views of the countryside. During the walk, stop at the village of Westerås, to enjoy a break, before continuing to Hole. After a brief stop, you will begin the Nordic walk back to the pier.

Please note: Guests must be in good physical condition to participate on this excursion. Uphill walking, uneven, gravel and paved terrain will be encountered.

Geiranger: The Golden Circle
This tour offers a breathtaking scenic view of Norwegian mountains, fjords, and glaciers. You will leave the village of Geiranger behind as your motor coach climbs up the Flydal Valley to the high mountain plateau at Djupvatn Lake, and then continue via Grotli to Tystigen Glacier over the Old Strynefjellet Mountain Road. The Old Strynefjell Mountain Road is a narrow road that twists and turns through the Strynefjell Pass. It is a bit of Norwegian road-building history, and was the only road for vehicular traffic between Skjåk and Stryn for most of the previous century. It is not only the manual labor and the story of its construction that makes the Old Strynefjell Mountain Road a scenic road. Along its length of 17 miles, the road demonstrates the tension between the topography of east and west, the ancient, rounded forms in the east, and the sudden drop and the more recent alpine forms in the west. Tystigen Glacier is popular for summer skiing and the northernmost branch of the Jostedalsbreen Glacier.  You will continue to Videseter and the Videdalen Valley where a 3-course lunch will be served at one of the mountain hotels in the area. Through the tunnel of the main road you will again climb up to Lake Djupvatn and further climb to the top of Mount  Dalsnibba, 5,000 feet above sea level where the views over Geiranger, the fjord, and the mountains are fantastic. 

Please note: There are steps to access the motor coach, no wheelchair elevator and wheelchairs must be collapsible.  The roads you will be traveling on will be winding mountain roads.

Torshavn: Vestmanna Sea Cliffs
Ride by coach to the village of Vestmanna. Here, you will board a boat and head out to the famous bird cliffs. All your senses will awaken with the sound of sea birds, the salty scent of the sea and its cool spray on your face, the stunning, weather-beaten cliff formations and the raucous riot of squawking birds who call the sea cliffs home. You'll cruise along the cliff wall, into a narrow gorge where sheer rock walls rise vertically on both sides towards the sky. The boat slowly enters one of the many grottoes, and for a moment, daylight disappears. Darkness and the sound of dripping water surround you and then, suddenly, you emerge on the other side. The boat stops for a while so you can enjoy the scenery. Take photographs to help you remember the details. After the boat trip, return to Tórshavn via the mountain road and stop at the viewpoint looking over the capital.

Please note: There are 4-5 steps to board the boat and the tour travels along a winding scenic mountain road.
