Lerwick, Shetland Islands

United Kingdom & Ireland

Encompassing four delightful countries—England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland—the United Kingdom lends itself to a historic and picturesque adventure. Zegrahm Expeditions’ UK tours take guests from the British Isles, where we’ll find some of Europe’s largest seabird colonies, to Edinburgh, where we’ll tour the castle and take a jaunt along the Royal Mile. Our UK cruises allow us to slip in and out of small ports where larger ships cannot go...to the World Heritage Sites and ancient ruins of the Orkney Islands to the lovely subtropical gardens on the Isles of Sicily. Custom-crafted with differing levels of adventure seeking in mind, our UK tours visit the geologic wonder of Giant’s Causeway, the magnificent St. Magnus Cathedral in Kirkwall, Scotland, and into quaint villages and isolated communities of the British Isles.
