It is difficult to describe the dramatic and unique landscape of Iceland without resorting to clichés: this is the land of gushing geysers, rumbling volcanoes and creeping glaciers. The small volcanic island of Heimaey in the remote Westmann archipelago is your first Icelandic port of call and it is then on to the island’s cosmopolitan capital, Reykjavik. From here you will visit the dramatic landscapes of Thingvellir National Park.
Then sail to the port of Isafjordur on the edge of the Arctic Circle and on to Akureyri with its magnificent green pastures, waterfalls and whale-filled bays. Finally, a call at Husavik a charming harbor surrounded by snow-covered mountains, which is full of colorful houses and home to the geothermal Myvatn Nature Baths. On this trip you will also visit Scottish castles, Viking settlements in the Faroe Islands and the remote Orkney and Shetland Islands.
