Travel to Experience Culture, History and Heritage

Enrich your travels. Learn about indigenous traditions and cultures and how they influence our modern world.

The cool North of Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Scotland, Ireland, Norway, Sweden and the Faroe Islands has a rich and varied heritage. When this heritage is viewed through the lens of anthropology and sociology, we can make connections between our past, present and future for a greater understanding and appreciation of the world we live in.

From historic Viking ships to the distinctive Fair Isle patterns and vibrant modern-day Inuit communities, there is a wealth of authentic traditional knowledge to be explored and acquired.

Travelling and learning across different communities helps us to understand how different peoples are shaped by their environment: how they behave, communicate, and socialise across history and geographies.
