Sail through history and into enchanting beauty

On a voyage aboard the new National Geographic Resolution, sister ship to the National Geographic Endurance, sail across the North Sea in the wake of legendary explorers and seafarers, traveling from Scotland's rolling green hills and ancient ruins to Norway's breathtaking fjords and snow-dusted mountains. Along the way explore an array of remote, ancient sites—Bronze Age ruins on the rugged Shetland Islands, the Viking tombs of Orkney, the 5,000-year-old settlement of Skara Brae—all juxtaposed against the dynamic, bustling cities of Bergen and Edinburgh. You’ll see the dramatic cliffs of the second-largest fjord in Norway and explore the evocative seascapes and rich traditions of the Shetland Islands. With our knowledgeable expedition team, encounter an interwoven tapestry of histories and cultures as we explore on foot, by kayak, and by Zodiac.

  • Glide beneath the dramatic cliffs of the second-largest fjord in Norway, Hardangerfjord

  • Explore the towering cliffs of Noss, a nature reserve that harbors thousands of seabirds including puffins, guillemots, and kittiwakes

  • See the U.K.’s northernmost lighthouse at Unst

  • Extend your stay with two options: pre- or post-trips to either Scotland or Bergen
