Hampshire Hikes & Historical Sites
Bring intriguing coastal trails and history alive in South Hampshire
This shorter length cruise will give you an insight into walking and cruising. Stopping at two exciting northern islands over five nights.
A five night cruise is a great way to discover our Cruise & Walk programme. The ship, her crew, facilities and food are all part of your experience. With your Ramblers Holidays Cruise & Walk leader, step ashore to discover two very different islands.
Our first stop in Lerwick, the Shetland Islands is a little home away from home offering stunning coastal scenery and for the those that enjoy bird spotting, this is a perfect stop. Lerwick is the friendly capital of the 100 islands and islets of the Shetland. The bustling, cosmopolitan seaport is the islands’ only town, and its wonderful natural harbour is a joy to explore.
As we enjoy another dinner on board we sale onto Tórshavn, the Faroe Islands. Known for its Old Town, Tinganes, and its curious wooden turf-roofed houses dotted across the small, rocky peninsula. Vikings discovered the islands over a thousand years ago, and established the main harbour at Tórshavn. With forts in place to protect it from pirates, it soon became a major trading centre. Many of the city’s ancient buildings are still standing.
