Panoramica

Fuggi dalla terraferma per un tour di una giornata delle remote isole Orcadi da John O'Groats. Viaggio in traghetto attraversando il Pentland Firth fino all'arcipelago delle isole Orcadi sferzato dal vento, colmo di paesaggi naturali da cartolina e luoghi di interesse mistici. Con una guida locale, naviga lungo le Churchill Barriers per visitare i villaggi vichinghi immersi nel mistero e vecchi 5000 anni Skara Brae e luoghi di interesse come la cappella italiana di Lamb Holm e la cattedrale di St. Magnus.
  • Gita di un giorno da John O'Groats alle isole Orcadi
  • Attraversa le Churchill Barriers
  • Giro in traghetto attraverso Pentland Firth
  • Osserva le foche e balene
  • Visita i villaggi di Stromness e Skara Brae
La tua gita attraverso le isole Orcadi, inizia al John O'Groats Harbour, dove salirai sul traghetto al mattino e salperai attraversando il burrascoso Pentland Firth, diretto verso il porto di Burwick. Dopo la navigazione, sarai trasferito in un comodo pullman, per un tour guidato delle impressionanti attrazioni locali.

Assapora il paesaggio incontaminato, mentre viaggi attraverso le Churchill Barriers (il vasto sistema a strada rialzata dell'isola). Potrai abbracciare la Scapa Flow (che significa "baia del lungo istmo" in vecchio norreno), dove potrai avvistare uccelli marittimi piombano addosso, e foche e balene ondeggianti. Sosta a Stromness, l'ultimo porto prima delle Americhe, e Kirkwall per vedere l'incantevole Cattedrale di St. Magnus, antica quasi un millennio! 

Immergiti nella misteriosa storia dei Vichinghi, mentre visiti monumenti antichi, tra cui i menhir preistorici, le tombe e il villaggio di Skara Brae, che risale a più di 5.000 anni fa. Concludi la giornata con una sosta presso la famosa cappella italiana, costruita durante la Seconda guerra mondiale dai prigionieri di guerra italiani. Potrai ammirare la bellezza e l'ingegno della cappella, costruita solo con materie prime di base; dopo salirai di nuovo a bordo del pullman per il viaggio di ritorno verso il porto.

Il giro si conclude a John O'Groats Harbor in serata.

tour piacevole

Tour molto piacevole,articolato con varie soste di interesse storico, ma per chi è carente nella lingua nei trasferimenti in pullman perde tutte le informazioni ed il racconto fatto dall'autista, potrebbe essere supportato da video con didascalia multilingua o da schede.

We did the Maxi Tour, with Stuart as our tour guide. He was a great guide. With this tour you get to see all the main highlights on Orkney. Stuart keeps gives you all the history and keeps it fun and interesting. We had a great day. Highly recommend.

Knowledgeable and enjoyable driver/tour leader. Wish there had been a short (5-10 minute) stop at an overview point for Scapa Flow for photo.

Great value for money and excellent way to see the main sights when you have limited time on the Island. Stuart the coach driver was fabulous enthusiastic and friendly and very knowledgeable. Only downside would be that I would have preferred less time in Stromness after having had an adequate stop in Kirkwall. I would have preferred extra time at the other attractions Standing stones, Scara Brae. All in all a truly wonderful trip, the history of the Island is so interesting

An amazing day trip with a great bus driver

I opted for this trip as I was travelling with my two children and we loved it. The ferry crossing was a little rough but I was fine as soon as my feet hit from ground. If you’re an English Heritage member, do not buy the Skara Brae ticket as EH gets you in. It was a magical day and the sun even shone for us. There was lots of driving but the coach driver we had (Andrew) as amazing and so informative and clued up on the history. There are plenty of stops along the way too, sobit breaks up the day. Mew went in a Sunday and the bigger towns were quiet as no cruise ships were in, but happy with a tea room!

A magical day! That's really great to hear. Thanks very much for your review. Good advice too about entry to Skara Brae. If you have English or Welsh Heritage you get free entry (50% for membership of less than 1 year). Likewise it's free entry with Historic Scotland membership or Explorer Passes. For those without such membership or passes we would really urge to buy an entry ticket in advance - either at our Ferry Office or on-board the Ferry - Just ask and we will be more than happy to do this. This will really help you on site as there is express entry for those with pre- purchased tickets.
