The coast, villages and countryside of the Eastern Algarve and then explore the treasures of this most westerly corner of Europe.
Greenland, a vast unspoiled wilderness where glaciers calve into bays strewn with icebergs, whale pods glide through the arctic waters and unique flora springs to life in the short summer months.
When you sail north, you sail into the lands of natural wonders. This is a cruise for the spectacular scenery of cliffs, thermal eruptions, glaciers and fjords. Both Greenland and Iceland have a reputation for being expensive, but on a Ramblers Cruise & Walk holiday, you benefit from excellent value and all the amazing scenery you would get on a land-based holiday. After a few days at sea, our first port of call is Reykjavik from where we visit the continental divide and some of the waterfalls and geysers for which the country is so well known. Iceland is a destination you may have dreamed of visiting. Its volcanic landscape, rugged coastline and wild vastness exert a deep pull on the imagination. Its thermal areas, volcanoes and glaciers are amongst the natural wonders of the earth.
From Iceland, we sail across the North Atlantic to Greenland. Our first experience there could not be more spectacular as we sail through Prins Christiansund, with bountiful Arctic wildlife and soaring cliffs. We then visit three coastal sites on the west, Qaqortoq, Narsarsuaq and Nanortalik, to experience this wild and remote land. And at the end of each day’s activities, you return to the excellent food and comfort of Black Watch and sail on towards another scenic destination.
