Iceland

Iceland has one of the most unique and truly mythical landscapes on Earth, thanks to the Volcanic environment and its position on the edge of the Artic, where glaciers, fjords and geysers combine. From the cosmopolitan capital city of Reykjavik, with its colourful roofs, geothermal pools, and fabulous restaurants, to the bewitching vistas at Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Grundarfjörður and Kirkjufell mountain – for a small country, Iceland holds so much diversity, with a different wonder to be discovered each day of your cruise.  The country’s waters also represent one of the richest marine habitats in the world, providing some wonderful opportunities for wildlife watching. Minke and humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins and porpoises have all being spotted along the Icelandic coast, so make sure you pack your binoculars, or take advantage of one of our spectacular whale-watching tours! Discover Iceland on one of our small-ship cruises, we promise you will not be disappointed.
