Sail around the best of the British Isles

In Stornoway, on the Isle of Lewis (part of the Hebrides) you'll discover where Harris tweed is woven and you'll visit Islay, which is famous for its whisky distilleries. You'll explore the Viking and Celtic heritage of the Isle of Man in Douglas before you visit Waterford, the home of crystal, and the oldest city in Ireland.
Also on your itinerary are the unspoilt Isles of Scilly, an enchanting archipelago off the Cornish coast. Your final stop will be the delightful waterfront town of Dartmouth, home of the Britannia Royal Naval College.
Your home for this wonderful trip will be the biodiesel-powered MS Maud, which has been newly-refurbished, where you can enjoy the spectacular views from the outdoor observation deck, insihgful talks, relax with a drink in the Explorer lounge and bar or enjoy the wonderful food for which Hurtigruten is renowned.
