Day 1 - London - Copenhagen.
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your journey to London Heathrow Airport and your direct, scheduled British Airways flight to Copenhagen. On arrival, we transfer to embark Azamara Journey® (5T) and settle in before dinner and an early evening sailing.
Day 2 - At sea
Enjoy time on board, getting to know the ship’s excellent facilities.
Day 3 - Geiranger, Norway
Admire nature at its glorious best as we sail along Geirangerfjord. We pass magnificent landmarks including the spectacular Seven Sisters Waterfall where seven streams fall 250m into the fjord and, directly opposite, the Suitor Waterfall, linked together by a legendary Norwegian folk tale of intercepted lust. At the head of the fjord sits the tiny village of Geiranger, dwarfed by towering snow-capped mountains.
Day 4 - Lerwick, Shetland Islands
Shetland belonged to the Vikings until 1468, when the islands were mortgaged to Scotland as part of a marriage agreement between the future James II and Princess Margrethe of Denmark. Britain’s most northerly town, Lerwick, is an ideal base from which to explore the islands, each a haven for an abundance of seabirds and inquisitive Shetland ponies, or 17th century Fort Charlotte.
Day 5 - At sea
Day 6 - Akureyri, Iceland
The small city of Akureyri sits on the shores of one of Iceland’s most spectacular fjords. See a display of Icelandic culture at the Folk Museum or enter the church to see scenes from Icelandic history immortalised in stained glass windows, and a model ship hanging from the ceiling to signify the protection for fishermen. The Botanical Gardens are also a popular attraction.
Day 7 - Reykjavik (overnight)
Reykjavik, a wonderful modern city with a twist of Icelandic culture and passion for art, is a great destination in itself, without the addition of the spectacular collage of lava fields, craters, waterfalls, and imposing mountain ranges which shape Iceland. Spot playful murals and street art as you make your way to intriguing museums and galleries and cosy cafés, or take a day trip to marvel at the wild Thingvellir National Park, where a canyon has been formed by the Mid-Atlantic Ridge that runs right across Iceland, and where the island’s parliament first assembled in AD 930. Also seize the opportunity to see Gullfoss Golden Waterfall and Strokkur, the geyser spouting up to 30 metres every few minutes. This evening, enjoy an AzAmazing EveningSM at the dazzling Harpa Concert Hall for a performance with Greta Salóme.
Day 8 - Reykjavik
Staying in port until late this afternoon, you have plenty of time today to make further discoveries in Reykjavik and beyond. Maybe visit the National Museum which gives an excellent insight into Iceland’s culture and history, or bathe in the geothermal springs of the Blue Lagoon.
Day 9 - At sea
Day 10 - Tórshavn, Faroe Islands.
Today we arrive at the beautiful remote archipelago of the Faroe Islands. Viking settlers are said to have established their parliament Torshavn in AD 825, and the capital has remained ever since. Discover the oldest part of Tórshavn, a delightful enclave of 500-year-old, turf-roofed homes, and visit Skansin Fortress, built to ward off pirates. The impressive medieval ruins of Kirkjubour are also capable of capturing your imagination.
Day 11 - At sea
Day 12 Southampton
We disembark Azamara Journey® after breakfast. You will be met and guided to your Titan vehicle, for the journey home.
