Land of Ice & Fire
Shrouded in mystery, Iceland is one of the worlds most isolated countries and also one of its most intriguing. Its largely uninhabited landscape is a fascinating patchwork quilt of lush valleys, vast ice caps, breathtaking active volcanoes, lively geysers, bubbling mud pools and hot springs, whilst its capital Reykjavik is both charmingly quaint and remarkably cosmopolitan. Along the way, you will enjoy two visits to the equally remote and equally absorbing Faroe Islands, with their unique Viking culture and stunning land and seascapes.
Part-old Norse, part-modern city, Icelands capital is both quirky and cosmopolitan. Brightly coloured houses create unique streetscapes, whilst further afield vast lava fields, bubbling mud pools, crashing waterfalls and spouting geysers will fire your imagination.
Set in a breathtaking bay framed by mountains, this north-western town offers facilities far exceeding its size, and is known as a centre for alternative music and culture in Iceland.
Akureyri enjoys a spectacular location at the head of Eyjafjordur, Icelands longest fjord, and is a visual delight with its colourful houses, beautifully tended lawns and the worlds northernmost botanical garden and golf course.
Set on opposite banks of a river amid skyscraping peaks, the Faroes second city has one of the most breathtaking settings in the world.
Note:In the event of adverse weather/sea conditions that prevent the ship from calling at one of the scheduled ports, alternative arrangements will be made where possible.
