Cultural Immersion: Finding the Stories

Travel within the history of an island steeped in inherent beauty of land and sea. Above, clouds will race, moving against the wind, the sun and the rainbows. Butterscotch light will reach down and cast warm shadows. Thousands of years ago, people found Orkney’s land arable and comforting. They honored their relationship with the land at a time much earlier than Stonehenge and Callanish by marking it with their own great stone megaliths, henges, and tombs. Vikings later came to rob but instead left their runic writing on the stones.

Through intimate encounters with the local Orcadian experts, you will sense the deep relationship of a people with the land. Hear, taste, touch, see, and smell their stories in intimate groups of no more than 8 people. Connect with the beauty of Orkney’s earth and sea, the hearts of its people, and the history of its stones and rolling hills. Be filled with the widest of cloud filled skies…the rush of a racing stream…the cries of the sea birds…and the smile of a seal…Be filled with your own stories…
