Journey to the Arctic
An adventure like no other
Capture Extraordinary Landscapes
Get up close & personal
Iceland is one of the most geologically active places on earth and the opportunity to circumnavigate this island by cruise is a great way to reach some of the more remote and wild areas that visitors traveling by land alone don’t often get to see. Take advantage of whale watching opportunities from the ship; orcas, sperm whale, minke whale, fin whale, and even blue whale are abundant in Icelandic waters. Depending on the itinerary you could also see the extraordinary Látrabjarg bird cliffs, the largest seabird cliffs in Europe, and Vatnajökull National Park, featuring Europe’s largest glacier. Some itineraries also include explorations of the Westfjords region, including the Hornstrandir Peninsula, one of Iceland’s most remote and pristine regions filled with many deep and dramatic fjords. Our Destination Specialists can also design custom land itineraries for you if you want to add more time, including extra days in Reykjavik to soak in the famous Blue Lagoon, for example.
