Titan adds new tours including Easter Island and the Arctic Circle in 2013

Titan’s new Cruise & Tour programme for 2013 features 15 new itineraries ranging from the remote South Pacific paradise of Easter Island to the natural wonders of the Arctic Circle.

Setting sail from Santiago aboard Fred Olsen’s elegant Black Watch, the Grand Voyage of Easter Island takes in some of the most idyllic and remote islands in the South Pacific from Robinson Crusoe Island to Easter Island and its iconic moai; giant stone heads that stand as a testament to the industry and tragedy of the first island settlers.

The ship then sails on to Raratonga and Tahiti before calling at the Bay of Islands, Auckland and finally Sydney.

Hurtigruten’s MS Fram will be undertaking a 12-day British Isles Explorer cruise

For those who prefer to stay closer to home there are a number of new European tours including the new British Isles Explorer aboard Hurtigruten’s intimate expedition ship MS Fram.

The compact size of the ship means it can call at destinations often inaccessible to larger vessels from the Isles of Scilly to the Isle of Man, Hebrides, Isle of Skye and Orkney Islands before ending up in Hamburg, Germany. The on-board lecturers provide further insight into the history and culture of these remote islands.

Wine connoisseurs may like to visit the Wine Regions of Bordeaux and Rioja to sample the delights of these two world-famous regions.

Accompanied by TV wine expert Jilly Goolden, visit the coastal towns of Nantes and La Rochelle before sailing into the heart of French wine country, Bordeaux. From here, an optional excursion in Bilbao offers the chance to visit La Guardia in the Rioja wine region to sample some of the country’s top wines.

Finally, from La Coruna, take an optional excursion to visit Santiago de Compostela, one of the most important Catholic pilgrimage routes in the world.

At the other end of the spectrum trip the light fantastic In search of the Northern Lights in Norway. Board Fred. Olsen’s Boudicca in Portsmouth and sail to the charming fishing port of Alesund before continuing to the ports of Tromso and Alta situated in the heart of the Arctic Circle – the best place to witness the spectacular displays of green, red and yellow celestial lights.

All Titan’s tours start and finish with its unique VIP Home Departure Service, which transports guests from their home to their departure point by uniformed chauffeurs in smart people carriers.

Titan is also offering on board credit of up to £200 per cabin and pre-paid gratuities across many tours.
