Wednesday 31 May – Friday 9 June 2023
Small ship live-aboard cruise around the Outer Hebrides, on board the converted Norwegian rescue ship Hjalmar Bjørge, for a maximum of ten guests. Relaxing “slow travel,” and simply the best way to appreciate Scotland’s west coast scenery, wildlife and culture, providing access to some of the more remote islands and sea lochs. We can expect some great encounters with seabirds, whales and dolphins, and other marine mammals. We will normally get a walk ashore somewhere each day, weather permitting, and will be safely at anchor every night. There will undoubtedly be some fabulous photo opportunities along the way, but all levels of interest can be catered for and it’s not wall-to-wall photography – we offer the original “rewilding escape” since long before the term was ever thought of!
The North Hebridean Explorer cruise itinerary aims to include visits to the islands of North Rona and Sula Sgeir, but obviously it’s weather dependent and the exact route will be at the discretion of the skipper.
This holiday is operated by the Northern Light Cruising Company , with Chris Gomersall acting as your onboard naturalist, guide, and photography mentor.
