Circumnavigate Iceland

Icelandic Cruise

This 11-day voyage, roundtrip from Reykjavik, is an adventure or islands, towns, and settlements that you’ll have to learn how to pronounce! Use Polarcirkel boats to get right up close to bird cliffs, visit volcanic islands and the largest glacier in Europe. Explore ancient heritage, hike through lava fields, maybe take in a swim at a natural hot spa.

puffins. 1.1.jpgDay 1: Embark in Reykjavik

The MS Fram won’t leave pier til the evening, so spend time exploring the capital city!

Day 2: Grundarfjörður and Stykkishólmur

The ship will be exploring the island in a clockwise direction. First stop is Grundarfjörður, on the Snæfellsnes peninsula. It’s ‘Iceland in a nutshell’ because there are hot and cold springs, volcanic activity and glaciers, as well as a variety of bird life and beautiful landscapes. Optional excursions in Stykkishólmur include kayaking, hiking, and horseback riding.

Day 3: Flateyri and Vigur Island

Build castles on the sandy beaches of the fjord – but it might be too cold for a dip in the sea. The number of visitors to Vigur Island is severely restricted due to the breading season of the local eider duck, whose down is the island’s major export.

Day 4: Ísafjörður

This fishing town is the largest town in the Westfjords region.

Day 5: Hornbjarg Cliff and Siglufjörður

The Hornbjarg Cliff is one of the greatest habitats in the country to seafowl. The peaks reach 534 miles above sea level.

Godafoss Waterfalls in AkureyriDay 6: Akureyri and Grímsey

Optional tours include a walking tour of Akureyri, a bus trip to Godafoss Waterfalls, or a small grassy island of Grímsey, close to the Arctic Circle.

Day 7: Húsavík and Langanes

Húsavík is the oldest settlement in Iceland. There are a variety of museums to visit, as well as an active drama society.

Day 8: Seyðisfjörður and Eskifjörður

Seyðisfjörður is a Norwegian-style village, surrounded by walking trails. The trails also go along the coastline and to the Fjarðará River. Eskifjörður is a seaside village, home to the seafarers’ lodge of Randulfssjóhús – unchanged since 1890. Taste a bite of local shark or dried fish!

Day 9: Djúpivogur and Höfn

Djúpivogur was originally founded in 1589, and its oldest standing house – now the cultural centre – was built in 1790. Höfn is home to the biggest glacier in Europe.

Day 10: Surtsey and Heimaey

The Westman Islands are a group of 15 islands and 30 rock pillars off Iceland’s southern coast. They are the above-water evidence of below-water volcanic activity. Heimaey is the largest of the Westman Islands, and an important fishing port.

Day 11: Disembark in Reykjavik

In the wake of the vikings, 24May-10June, 2012
