Day 4Port of CallSeydisfjordhurArrival 10:00a.m.Departure 6:00p.m.

Overview

Seydisfjörur fjord is long and narrow and flanked by high mountains. At its head lies a town which, bears the same name as the fjord itself. The river Fjarará flows through Seydisfjörur town and it has one of the best natural harbours in the country. The town of Seydisfjörur experienced an economic boom just before the turn of the last century, when the Norwegian Otto Wathne and other entrepreneurs began fishing and processing herring on a major scale. Thus the oldest part of the town is built in 19th century Norwegian-style architecture, making Seydisfjörur unique among Icelandic fishing towns. The sub-oceanic telegraph cable that linked Iceland with the outside world came ashore there in 1906 and soon connected the rest of the country through overhead lines. During World War II Seyisfjörur became a major military base. Seydisfjörur is the closest Icelandic port to the Faeroe Islands and Europe. Since 1975 a Faeroese passenger and car ferry has operated scheduled weekly sailings between Seydisfjörur and Scandinavia during the summer, and this has attracted considerable tourism to the area. The cultural life is very lively during the summer. The Art festival is a yearly event. The Blue Church has concerts every Wednesday in summer. Art exhibitions are at the cultural centre and a Crafts Market. There is a swimming pool, a golf course, mini golf and the Rarik electricity museum. Also offered are guided sightseeing tours, cruises, sea angling tours, and trips to Lomundarfjörur fjord. There are a variety of marked hiking trails in the area, and fishing licences are available for purchase.

Overview

Dublin is the capital of Ireland, Irish culture and cuisine. The regional and micro breweries that once flourished, although crowded out of business for the last hundred or so years by Guiness, more for its marketing and transportation triumphs than necessarily for qualitative reasons, are coming back to add local colour and variety to the famous old Irish pubs. Ireland has produced some of the world’s greatest writers, and in its traditional folk ballads and rich melodies you can hear the unique elements which form the roots of modern rhythm and blues music.

Day 10Port of CallZeebruggeArrival 8:00a.m.Departure 5:00p.m.

Overview

Linked with Brugge, its historic metropolis, by a 7.5 mile canal, Zeebrugge is a seaside resort looking to the future. The international port, jutting far out into the sea, doesn't prevent holidaymakers from frolicking on the fine little sandy beach. On the sea front, hotels and cafés give tourists their warmest welcome. Being Belgium's leading fishing port, Zeebrugge has quite a lot of fishmongers' shops. Besides being a passenger port with regular ferry services between the United Kingdom and the continent, Zeebrugge also has an attractive marina which can accommodate some 100 vessels. Zeebrugge also enjoys a very convenient geographical location, just a few miles away from beautiful Brugge, the fashionable sea resort of Knokke, and the picturesque village of Lissewege. During the summer season the beach invites to (sun) bathing, playing and relaxing. Autumn and winter are the right seasons to take a firm walk along the seaside. On the western dam, a promenade reaches far out into the open sea. At the foot of the dam the "St. George Memorial" commemorates the Battle of Zeebrugge (23.4.1918) on which occasion the British Royal Navy finally put the German U-Boot base out of action. The City Community House on Marktplein is the seat of the city administration. The premises also have a socio-cultural function.
