    Lerwick/Shetland Islands/Scotland

    Welcome to Scotland’s “Wild West”! The untamed power of the North Sea and the North Atlantic, together with around 100 Shetland Islands, set the stage for breathtaking natural spectacles – and the front-row seats are on board the BREMEN. The heart of the Shetlands beats in Lerwick, Britain’s northernmost town. Its 18th century stone houses, nestled close together, will reveal their history during a walk through the old town. Surrounded by picturesque countryside, the famous archaeological site of Jarlshof* will enthral you with its traces of Stone Age people, Bronze Age settlers and Vikings. Alternatively, go on a coastal hike to the Cliffs of Eashaness*, where awe will be your constant companion. The scenery is accompanied by the sound of the crashing waves of the Atlantic, whose spray covers the dark cliffs.

    Saturday, 28.09.2019

    Kirkwall/Orkney Islands

    The Orkney archipelago is made up of some 70 islands and forms a spectacular setting for insights into European cultural history. Setting out from Kirkwall with its St Magnus Cathedral built in 1137, discover the historic treasures of Orkney*, including the Stones of Stenness, the Ring of Brodgar and the late Neolithic village of Skara Brae. Superb? Phenomenal? How will you describe the hike along the coastal cliffs*?

    Sunday, 29.09.2019

    South Uist/Outer Hebrides

    As the ship calls at South Uist for the first time, the Outer Hebrides present exciting expedition territory for the BREMEN and its Zodiacs. You will experience first-hand on a hike along Machair Way* how the very special combination of chalky sand and peaty soil provides exceptionally fertile ground for vast meadows and diverse wild flowers – directly by the sea.

    Morning cruising through Scotland’s world of islands and fjords, Fort William

    Enjoy the distinctive character of the western Highlands as you then cruise through Scotland’s world of islands and fjords. The BREMEN can take full advantage of its status as a small ship to navigate the Sound of Mull and the tight passage through the Corran Narrows. Impressive landscapes pass you by, until the BREMEN reaches Fort William for the first time, on the banks of Loch Linnhe. This lively town, with its cosy pubs, cafes and restaurants, is dominated by Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain. From here, discover the mysteries of Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle*. Even if Nessie doesn’t put in an appearance, the ruins of the 14th-century castle are an extraordinary photo opportunity.

    Inner Hebrides (Staffa, Iona)

    What kind of place would have inspired Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy to compose his Hebrides Overture? Find out when you ride out in the Zodiacs to visit Fingal’s Cave, the huge basalt cave on the island of Staffa. It is hard to believe that the spiritual heart of Scotland awaits you on the small island of Iona. But this is the cradle of Scottish Christianisation – and the final resting place of more than 60 kings, including Macbeth.

    Wednesday, 02.10.2019

    Belfast/Northern Ireland, from 8.00 to 18.00 hrs

    Belfast is where the heart of Northern Ireland beats. Shaped by its industrial past, the birthplace of the Titanic is great to explore on your own. Almost 60 million years of geological development created Giant’s Causeway*. This natural wonder is made up of some 37,000 basalt columns, most of them hexagonal. Or why not sample the spirit of Ireland at the Old Bushmills Whiskey Distillery*.

    Thursday, 03.10.2019

    Douglas/Isle of Man

    The BREMEN calls at another island of great character in the Irish Sea: the Isle of Man. Its culture was shaped by the Celts and the Vikings – and one of the world’s oldest parliaments, Tynwald Court, still exists today. While the seafront promenade invites you for a relaxing stroll in Douglas, you can also take the steam train to Rushen Castle* – one of Europe’s best-preserved medieval castles.

    Friday, 04.10.2019

    Dublin/Ireland, arrival 7.00 hrs

    Dublin is like a living history book, with its chapters reflected in churches and cathedrals. Discover some of its exciting pages during a city tour including the Book of Kells*, a richly decorated Gospel book from the 9th century. More dramatic chapters, written by nature, will be revealed on the rocky paths of the cliff hike from Bray to Greystones*. Old Ireland in the Boyne Valle* is probably older than Stonehenge and the pyramids. The BREMEN will stay in Dublin’s harbour overnight. This means that, after an evening meal on board, you will have time to relax and enjoy the Irish way of life in one of the many pubs.

    Scilly Isles/England

    Back in English waters, you will feel almost as though you are in the tropics when you visit the Scilly Isles. During a walk on Tresco, marvel at Abbey Garden, which has more than 4,000 exotic plants – able to grow here thanks to the Gulf Stream. In early autumn, rare species of duck can often be spotted as they make the island their wintering ground. Together with your team of experts, you will also explore St Mary’s – the economic and cultural centre of the small group of islands – during a hike.
