Great for families and the eco-interested travellers, discover the wildlife and beautiful landscapes of the island of Fano during a fully guided break with DFDS Seaways, with 3 nights onboard, including one night in port and a day and a half on the Danish island of Fano.

Have a go at spotting and identifying the birds, whales, dolphins, porpoises and seals present on this route with the help of an expert (field guides are provided, but please bring your own binoculars).

There’s also time to relax in your ensuite cabin and enjoy the onboard entertainment to include the interactive wildlife presentations in the Columbus Lounge and gastronomic restaurants.

Upon arrival next day, Fano is just ten minutes by ferry from Esbjerg. The island is internationally important for migrating and feeding birds, as well as being famous for its beautiful beaches, dunes and sweeping landscapes.

Here, you will discover why birds have a passion for travel, as you watch migration in action with thousands of birds making fuel stops en route between their wintering and breeding grounds. In 2009 passengers watched 50,000 birds of nearly 100 species in a single day – incredible!

Denmark’s largest colony of Common and Grey Seals will also be on the agenda, and you will have time to explore some of the beautiful old Scandinavian villages, making this a great short break for anyone with a passion for nature and culture.

3 nights from £208pp including meals, departing 2nd May 2010 (£140pp excluding meals)

What's included:

- 3 nights on board ship in a 2-berth sea-view cabin (including 1 night in Esbjerg port).
