This isn’t your typical horse: the Shetland pony is a unique breed that originated in the Shetland Islands — and this is your chance to spend a short time meeting and learning about these animals while touring a local, family-run stud farm. You’ll start out in Lerwick, the capital of Shetland: Considered Mainland’s cultural and social hub, this town is known for its busy harbor, narrow main street, Old Norse roots and 18th-century sandstone buildings. On a 20-minute coach ride north of Lerwick, you’ll enjoy views of landscapes dappled with rolling hills, craggy North Sea shorelines, wildflower meadows and rural crofting communities. Upon arrival at a local Gott Pony ranch, you’ll spend approximately 20 minutes gaining insight from an expert about the breeding practices of their ponies, as well as these creatures’ distinctive characteristics — shaggy coats, flowing manes, short legs, good temperament and supreme intelligence. You might even snap a few photos of the Shetland ponies before returning to your ship.

Highlights:
• Lerwick: Shetland’s capital also serves as the region’s only real town, renowned for its busy port and herring trade industry.
• Mainland Shetland: Admire scenes of verdant farmland, rocky coastline and picturesque villages on a motor coach ride across the island.
• Gott Ponies: Meet these highly intelligent and mild-tempered animals while touring a family-run stud farm set in the Shetland countryside.
