Journey to the Westfjords and discover a different side of Iceland.
For a country named after a cold and uninviting element, you might find yourself surprised at how colourful Iceland’s countryside can be. Take eight days to get personal with the northern country and it’s climate as you sail from Reykjavik to stunning landscapes such as the towering Mt. Kirkjufell, the waterfalls of the Snafellsnes Peninsula, the red sandy coast of Raudasandur Beach and the seas of flowers in Pingeyri. It’s a trip like no other, showing the warm, beating heart of a country with a cold exterior.
Cruise the rugged coast of the Westfjords looking out for puffins, nesting birds and whales along the way
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
Make like a Viking at Pyngeyri, home of that legendary Icelandic literature The Sagas
Tour the spectacular Snaefellsnes Peninsula by road. Known as Iceland in Miniature, this destination has a great amount of the spectacular scenery Iceland is famous for – all in one place
This is a small ship adventure cruise, which means you’ll be sailing on a yacht with 30–50 other people. The boat is spacious and comfortable, but it focuses more on the destination than on-board activities. Instead of a pool, we have the sea itself. Instead of a casino, we’ve got board games and a good book. There’s also no formal dress code to worry about. Wi-Fi is available for a small charge.
Our ship moves under engine power, rather than sailing, so all cabins will experience light engine noise when the ship is moving (and occasionally when we drop anchor). It’s probably worth packing earplugs if you’re a light sleeper.
Onshore activities and excursions will involve a bit of walking. You’ll be visiting places with mixed conditions underfoot and uneven ground. If you have any concerns, please speak to your group leader before taking part.
If you’re concerned about seasickness, there are seasickness tablets on-board. The ship will experience some roll and pitch in choppy conditions, however all of our ships come equipped with stabilisers to minimise movement. Most of our departures run in peak season, when the seas are calmer. Your crew will do all they can to minimise any discomfort.
There are no lifts (elevators) on-board our ships, so you’ll have to navigate a few steep flights of stairs. Handrails are always available.
