The expansive view of the ocean and the majestic volcanic crater that formed this island and the historical passages of the ancient whalers tell the story of this land and its people.

You will be left with a feeling of having traveled from the earth to the moon and back. You will be mentally stimulated, physically exhausted and personally rewarded only yearning to repeat this amazing course that is the Whalers’ Great Route
