Discover the Historic Voyage of a Lifetime
Transatlantic Crossings typically offer two incredible routes with completely different yet equally interesting itineraries. The Northern route will take you and your fellow travellers around still-active volcanoes in and around the fjords of Iceland as well as exploring Viking history among the Faroe Islands as well as the incredible history of the Neolithic, Iron and Bronze Ages as discovered in the archaeological sites of the Shetland Islands. For a completely different flavour, the Southern route takes you through the Azores, provides the opportunity for wine tasting in Madeira and shopping along 17th-century streets in the Canary Islands. It doesn’t matter which route you choose, be it north or south, your exciting Transatlantic Crossing adventure awaits!
