Destinations

Husavik Whale Museum

One of the most visited places in the north of Iceland, you’ll be offered a captivating glimpse into the world of the whale, one of the most intriguing animals in the world and a species that has strong ties to the people of Iceland.


Pretty Akureyri

Cruising into the harbour of Akureyri is one of the loveliest arrivals to be had on this itinerary. With its brightly coloured houses, snow-capped mountain backdrop and welcoming atmosphere, this is a wonderful place to spend time in.


Waterfall of the gods

The Goðafoss or the ‘waterfall of the gods’ is one of the most remarkable waterfalls in all of Iceland. Situated in the island's central north, crystal clear water cascades over the horseshoe-shaped falls which measure 12 metres in height and 30 metres in width.


Puffin spotting

Bird-spotting is one of the great sports in Iceland and we take you to two of the best locations, Latrabjag Cliffs and Heimay Island. Latrabjag hosts up to 40% of the world’s bird population for some species and is vital to their survival. Heimaey is home to around eight million puffins every summer. Our Zodiac excursions will give you a birds-eye view into this ornithological playground.

Excursions and experiences

Discovery just got even more exciting thanks to our handcrafted itineraries which are filled to the brim with extraordinary experiences across all our Iceland cruises.
