DAY 1 - 16 August 2020:Dublin

In the wake of the Celtic Tiger boom and financial crisis, Dublin, the Irish capital in the east of the Emerald Isle continues to be young, dynamic and European. It adeptly combines tradition and innovation in a small space. O'Connell Street in the Northside of Dublin shimmers with the lofty steel Millennium Spire and a brand new district has sprung up in the docklands with futuristic glass buildings and a Calatrava bridge. The old Half Penny Bridge takes you right into the heart of the city. Here you will find the lively, cobbled Temple Bar district with its numerous Guinness pubs, Dublin Castle, which is over 800 years old, and the soaring spires of St. Patrick's and Christ Church Cathedrals. Behind the neo-classical façade of the historic Trinity College, founded in 1592, is a magnificent library and the 1,200 year-old Book of Kells.

DAY 2 - 17 August 2020:Fishguard/ Wales

DAY 3 - 18 August 2020:At Sea

DAY 4 - 19 August 2020:Brest

Thanks to its sheltered position in the Bay of Brest, an exquisitely beautiful Atlantic inlet which extends deep inland, the Cité du Ponant has been an important naval port and base for the French Atlantic fleet for centuries. Almost entirely destroyed during the war and rebuilt from scratch, this modern university city now looks resolutely to the future and to its close ties with the navy and the sea. Maritime activities can be best observed from the promenade above the busy port or on the lively quayside itself. A new marina is being built beneath the castle which houses the national naval museum. The Océanopolis sea life centre in the Moulin Blanc marina boasts some huge aquariums and provides the latest scientific information in multimedia format on tides, weather and sea life.

DAY 5 - 20 August 2020:Le Palais/Belle-Île-en-Mer

At 54 square miles, Belle-Île-en-Mer, south of Lorient is the largest of Brittany's islands. For a few weeks every summer, the storms and crashing waves subside and the island takes on a laid-back holiday atmosphere, with lots of bicycles, beach towels and music. On the west coast, the waves break on the rocks causing white crests to dance on the water. Small, idyllic bays and beaches nestle in deep inlets in the rocky coastline, sometimes only accessible from the sea. The island's capital is the port of Le Palais with its imposing citadel and countless street cafés along the harbour and in the Place de la République. Claude Monet spent two and a half months on the island, producing 39 paintings of the wild Côte Sauvage.

DAY 6 - 21 August 2020:La Rochelle (La Pallice)

The Vieux Port dock and the beautiful front, which teems with cafés, form the centre of the picturesque old town. Two imposing towers once served as lookout posts for the harbour and town, and are now the symbol of La Rochelle. The medieval town walls, town hall, churches and shipowners' offices bear testament to its former glory. Today, the Les Minimes marina is one of the largest examples of its kind in Europe. A bridge spans the 3km gap between the mainland and the Ile-de-Ré. With its enchanting beaches and dunes, little villages, cottages with green shutters and alleyways lined with hollyhocks, the 'White Isle' is a paradise for cyclists.

DAY 7 - 22 August 2020:Pasajes (San Sebastian)

DAY 8 - 23 August 2020:Santander

The 'Norwegian Riviera' stretches some 124 miles along the coast between Sandefjord in the east and Kristiansand in the west. Its mild climate comes courtesy of the craggy mountains in the north while thousands of small rocky islands protect it against rough seas. The charming little coastal town of Risør was christened 'the white town on the Skagerrak' during the great Dutch wood export boom around 1500. It is one of Europe's best-preserved 19th century wooden settlements and is considered to be the country's most beautiful wooden town. There are also three fjords and an archipelago on the doorstep.

DAY 9 - 24 August 2020:Áviles

DAY 10 - 25 August 2020:La Coruña

Porto considers itself the country's secret capital. The narrow lanes of the historic old town "Ribeira", a UNESCO World Heritage Site, extend in terraces up the slope overlooking the Douro. The former working class district has blossomed into a beautifully restored trendy neighbourhood. A student of Gustave Eiffel created the bold design for the bridge, which stretches over the river in a wide arc and links the Ribeira with Vila Nova da Geia and its 50 port wineries that lie on the other side. The best way to reach the incredible Douro Valley and the countryside of the Alto Douro wine region, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is by river.

DAY 11 - 26 August 2020:Islas Cíes

On the seventh day, when God had created the world, he took a rest from his work on Galicia's Cíes Islands. And you can well understand why. Today the Galician National Park encompasses large parts of the sea and three uninhabited islands which form the archipelago of the Cíes Islands. Walking along beautiful footpaths along impressive cliffs, through dune landscapes and small forests, you can discover the rich array of flora and fauna. Its beautiful beaches are still almost a secret - the Playa de Rodas was even selected by a British newspaper as the world's most beautiful beach.

DAY 12 - 27 August 2020:Leixões (Porto)

DAY 13 - 28 August 2020:Lisbon

The most beautiful approach to the Portuguese capital is to travel up the River Tagus. One of the city's most famous landmarks has been greeting visitors right on the estuary since 1521 - the Torre de Belém. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and transports you back to the glory days when Portugal was a naval power. There are many landmarks, such as the facades of the houses decorated with azulejos tilework and the ancient trams that rattle through the city. But Lisbon has many different sides. Joie de vivre comes face to face with the melancholy of Fado music, winding lanes in the old city meet wide boulevards, while magnificent churches and austere monasteries show the two sides of former religious faith.
