Iceland's Natural Beauty Map

 

Day 1 — Reykjavík, Iceland

 

Arrive in Reykjavík today and embark your ship. Take in the city’s breathtaking setting from the deck or from your veranda. Our overnight stay here gives you more time in port to fully experience the world’s northernmost capital.

 

Day 2 — Reykjavík, Iceland

 

Explore Reykjavík, one of the cleanest and most eco-friendly cities in the world. Vikings settled here in 870 AD, and today Reykjavík is home to endless charms, watched over by the majestic Esja mountain range. You will see the city’s highlights up close, including the charming cathedral. And admire the cityscape from the Perlan, a hilltop, glass-domed landmark offering spectacular city views. Alternately, you may venture farther afield to take in the country’s breathtaking natural beauty, from towering waterfalls to soaring mountains.

 

Day 3 — ĺsafjördur, Iceland

 

Uncover the natural beauty and history of the Westfjords peninsula in Iceland’s most remote, and many say most breathtaking, reaches. Explore your port city of ĺsafjördur and the tiny and tranquil enclave of Bolungarvík, one of the nation’s oldest fishing villages and home to the Ósvör Maritime Museum. Alternately, marvel at the magnificent Dynjandi waterfall, a bridal veil of water cascading down a mountainside, or kayak amid some of Iceland’s most picturesque locations.

 

Day 4 — Akureyri, Iceland

 

Visit Iceland’s second largest city and admire its colorful architecture. Nicknamed the “Capital of the North,” Akureyri prospered during its days as a Danish trading post. On a panoramic tour, view the city’s beloved church and admire some of the 2,000 species of blooms at the Public Park and Botanic Garden.

 

Day 5 — Seydisfjördur, Iceland

 

Walk along streets of colorful wooden homes dating back to the 19th century or explore the surrounding fjord landscape, all overseen by starkly picturesque slopes and the soaring summits of Mounts Bjólfur and Strandartindur. The tiny town boasts a thriving scene of local arts and a history dating back to early Viking settlement. If you wish, you may follow a tranquil walking path from the town center along the banks of the Fjardará River.

 

Day 6 — Djúpivogur, Iceland

 

Djúpivogur has been a trading center since the 16th century. The town’s Heritage Museum celebrates its commercial roots, and is located in the Langabúð, the oldest warehouse in Djúpivogur. The town is presided over by the towering Búlandstindur; a pyramid-shaped mountain famed in local folklore for its ability to grant wishes during the summer solstice. Stroll through the town as you embrace the pace of life here. Djúpivogur has adopted the cultural trend known as “Cittaslow” which is dedicated to the promotion of sustainable living, improving the quality of life for its residents.

 

Day 7 — Westman Islands (Heimaey), Iceland

 

Heimaey is the only populated island in the Westman Islands. The scenery is stunning with its volcanic landscapes, moss-covered clifftops and picturesque homes with brightly colored rooftops. Witness breathtaking natural sights and learn about the volcanic eruption that took place here in 1973. Each summer, millions of puffins pay a visit and countless other species migrate here to feed and breed. During a tour, learn about the efforts taken by locals to protect the existence of Heimaey’s wildlife.
