The Explore the Norwegian Fjords and Scottish Highlands tour starts in Edinburgh and ends in Tromsø. The Explore the Norwegian Fjords and Scottish Highlands is a marine wildlife tour that takes days taking you from Edinburgh to Tromsø and through other destinations in Europe.

Get a true taste of Scotland before sailing across the Norwegian Sea to the otherworldly fjords of Norway. Stroll the streets of Edinburgh and walk the paths of the Scottish Highlands before embarking on a voyage that takes you to UNESCO World Heritage Sites like the Standing Stones of Stennes and the mystical Ring of Brodgar. You'll also visit archaeological sites, witness the curious clash of cultures in the Shetland Islands, and take in the stunning beauty of the forests and waterfalls that line the fjords. This is a journey not to be missed, nor to be ever forgotten.
