From Dublin to Tromso: the Hebrides and Lofoten

PONANT invites you on an all-new expeditioncruise from the North Atlantic to the Norwegian Sea. Set sail aboard L’Austral for a 12-day circuit and allow yourself to be captivated by these singular archipelagos, marrying the beauty of nature with the weight of rich cultural heritage.  

During your trip, you will sail along the Gulf Stream and its nutrient-loaded waters, to discover extremely varied wildlife.

Located to the north of Great Britain, the Hebrides and the ShetlandIslands form a 200-km arc frequented by whales and, much to the delight of ornithologists, a multitude of seabirds. In particular, you will call on Iona, the cradle of Christianity and home to an impressive abbey, and Kirkwall, a former Viking trading post with a magnificent cathedral.

L’Austral will then reach the Norwegian town of Geiranger and its sublime fjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, before crossing the Arctic Circle.

Further north, you will marvel at the mysterious charm of the Lofotenarchipelago. These islands have landscapes of surreal beauty alternating between sea, spectacular fjords, mountain slopes, fine sand beaches and huts on stilts. A veritable paradise for fishermen and photographers.
