Follow in the footsteps of the vikings as Valiente sails from the West coast of Scotland, to the Orkney and Shetland islands before finishing in Bergen, Norway.

Join expedition yacht Valiente on the West coast of Scotland in the harbour of Mallaig as you get ready to set the sails towards the Orkney Islands before crossing the North Sea to the coast of Norway.

Just across the North Sea, west of Vestlandet, lies an a sailor’s paradise, waiting to be explored. Since the Viking Age our Norse ancestors have had close ties to and at times ruled over these archipelagos in the west. Shetland, the Orkney Islands, and other parts of Scotland were once part of the Norwegian Empire, and we will keep an eye out for traces of the Norse on this trip through these exciting places on the way home from Scotland to Norway.
