Monday, May 28 - Dublin, Ireland

Dublin, the fair city, invites you to wander the streets trod by Joyce, Yeats, and Oscar Wilde. Drop in at pubs with mahogany bars and stained glass. In the Trinity College Library, feast your eyes on the illuminated 9th-century Book of Kells. Sample the stout at Guinness Brewery. Shopping is a dream - from a souvenir shillelagh to Waterford crystal.

Tuesday, May 29 - Dublin, Irleand

Wednesday, May 30 - At Sea

Thursday, May 31 - Reykjavik, Iceland

Reykjavík is the gateway to Iceland. A young-at-heart city with a long history, encircled by mountains and sea, it lies just minutes away from a magnificent unspoiled landscape shaped by the energy of the earth—an adventurous playground of boiling mud pools, spurting geysers, glaciers, and waterfalls. Days lengthen in late spring until midsummer when the sun dips down to the horizon but never sets. Salmon fishing, midnight golf, sailing, climbing, glacier trekking, horse riding, and whale watching are all within easy reach of the capital and can easily fit into a day trip. A buzzing art scene offers a diverse range of cultural happenings and dynamic grassroots activities. Painting, sculptures, photography, ceramics; everywhere you look small galleries and exhibition halls are filled with beautiful artwork. Icelandic musicians are first class and many of them have already attained international fame such as Björk and Sigur Ros. Iceland’s fashion industry is also booming. Find handmade clothes and accessories, some made of fish roe leather, and jewelry the likes of which are not available anywhere else.

Friday, June 1 - Reykjavik, Iceland

Saturday, June 2 - Akureyri, Iceland

Akureyri rests at the head of Iceland’s longest fjord and among snowcapped mountains. A statue of Helgi the Lean and Thorunn Hyrna, the first settlers of the area from the year 890, greets visitors on Brekkugata street. Walk the Arctic Botanical Gardens (Lystigardurinn) to learn more about arctic botany and indigenous Icelandic flora. One of Akureyri’s gems, it was founded in 1912, and it contains nearly every plant found in Iceland ca. 450 and nearly 7,000 foreign plants. Akureyri has many museums, galleries, and exhibits that offer insight into the diversity of the Icelandic culture. Don’t forget to explore Iceland’s early history with a tour of nearby Laufas, a former vicarage full of turf houses made of sod and timbers originally dating around 1000 AD.

Sunday, June 3 - At Sea

Monday, June 4 - Lerwick/Shetland, Scotland

Explore Jarlshof’s Stone, Bronze and Iron age ruins, or take a ferry to Mousa to see the 200-year-old “broch,” or castle. Meander narrow streets, stop for a pint at the pub, and pause to pet the Shetland ponies that hail from here.

Tuesday, June 5 - At Sea

Wednesday, June 6 - Cork (Cobh), Ireland

Cork spans both banks of the River Lee, with watery channels running beneath many main streets. Experience Cork by foot, following the signposted walking tour past St. Finn Barre’s Cathedral and the riverside quadrangle of University College up the hill to red and white Shandon Church. North and south of St Patrick’s Street lie webs of narrow streets crammed with cozy pubs, cafes, restaurants, and shops.

Thursday, June 7 - Disembark in Dublin, Ireland
