These cruises offer the chance to visit many of Iceland’s scenic and natural wonders. Thundering waterfalls, famous geysers, a landscape still in flux from glaciers and volcanoes. Sail past massive sea cliffs and into remote fjords.

Our unique shore walks and excursions include:

Reykjavik: Iceland’s capital is close to the classic Golden Circle of thermal areas, waterfalls and the Thingvellir National Park where the NorthAmerican and European continents meet. One cruise allows us to experience the thermal world of Steam Valley.

Ísafjörður: We view the peaks surrounding the fjord from a coastal route, then walk up on to the hills overlooking the fjord, town and countryside.

Seyðisfjörður: A local guide takes us through the Vestdalur Nature Reserve on Iceland’s east coast as far as the Vestdals Lake.

Akureyri: We walk inland up a former glacial valley which offers rich flora and great opportunities for bird watching.

Tórshavn: A short coach journey from the capital of the Faroe Islands brings us to the hamlet of Kirkjubour from where we walk back to Torshavn with views over to neighbouring islands.
