From: £6790.00

Iceland is a land of physical extremes, from towering rocky cliffs and glacier-tipped volcanoes to sweeping tundras and Viking haunts. On this cruise you will see it all, from the popular Westman Islands to the remote and relatively untouched Westfjords. Wonder at thundering waterfalls of Reykholt, climb the dizzyingly steep Latrabjarg cliffs and encounter history both ancient and contemporary. Afterwards, explore the beautifully rugged landscapes of Iceland’s western peninsulas. Enjoy a boat cruise between icebergs at Glacier Lagoon and trek around vast waterside craters. Visit charming fishing villages and walk the colourful streets of Reykjavik. Highlights/r/n
  • Only a fraction of visitors to Iceland make it across to the far-flung west, and the lack of tourists make its landscapes and villages a dream to explore
  • Learn about the devastating effects of a volcano eruption which rocked the Westman Islands in 1973, leaving large swaths of town buried beneath ash and lava and earning the moniker “Pompeii of the North”
  • Visit the home of influential Icelandic scholar Snorri Sturluson and see the landscapes that inspired his epic poetry
  • Witness the breadth of Iceland's incredible natural phenomena – bubbling volcanic solfataras, rootless craters, glacial lakes and geothermal lagoons
  • Stunning no matter when you see it, Gullfoss is more than simply Iceland's largest waterfall. In the sun it’s graced by a dazzling rainbow
  • On your journey from Skaftafell, you'll drive through fields of lava created by Laki's famous volcanic eruption of 1783
  • Enjoy a balance of guided excursions and free time. Do some whale watching, go cycling or bathe in hot springs
  • In the Modrudalur Valley a local baker will ‘treat’ you to a pastry making demonstration. Astarpungur – translated into English this means “love-ball” – is a round donut-like pastry typical to the region
  • In the Hvolsvollur Valley our local friends will give you an insight into how the eruption of Eyafjallajokull volcano in 2010 has affected the lives of the residents in the area
