8-Night Reykjavik Roundtrip

9 Day Arctic Adventure

Navigation around Surtsey Island is a rare treat for explorers as it's only open to researchers. As your Captain sails around the island, you may spot flocks of puffins along the shoreline or seals and orcas in nearby waters. In Heimaey, built around the remains of an excavated home buried by ash during Eldfell's eruption, you'll find the Eldheimar Museum with a tour that takes you through the home and describes the history of the eruption. The small town of Grundarfjörður, home to fewer than 1,000 inhabitants, is also home to Kirkjufell (Church Mountain). Together with the mountain, a three-pronged waterfall called Kirkjufellsfoss creates an exquisite scene straight out of fantasy. Venture into the northernmost inhabited island in Iceland when you land in Grímsey. Look for the stone sphere marking the edge of the Arctic Circle.

    ITINERARY

    Please note: The July 3, 2024 voyage is in the reverse direction, and is a day longer.

    Day 1: Reykjavik, Iceland

    In the southwest of Iceland near Faxaflói Bay lies the capital of the country, Reykjavík, simultaneously cosmopolitan and charming. The colorful houses on the horizon create a quaint scene that will make you want to stay forever.Kaleidoscopic views await you at the Harpa Concert Hall, a glittering, glass structure that perfectly exemplifies Iceland’s modern design and will fascinate your inner architect. One of Iceland’s most prominent landmarks is Perlan, originally a group of hot water tanks that was converted to a building that now hosts an exhibition, planetarium, restaurant and observation deck, located atop Öskjuhlíð hill..

    Day 2: Grundarfjordur, Iceland
    Amid the wondrous features of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula lies the small town of Grundarfjörður, home to fewer than 1,000 inhabitants. Its shining star of a landmark, Kirkjufell, translating to “Church Mountain,” beckons explorers to come and discover the beauty of Iceland. Together with the mountain, a three-pronged waterfall called Kirkjufellsfoss creates an exquisite scene straight out of fantasy. Taking a walk through the center of town, you will come across an orca on land. It’s actually a sculpture created by Unnsteinn Guðmundsson and it was modeled after Thunderstorm the orca, a male whale who often greets visitors during whale watching tours.

    Day 3: Isafjordur, Iceland
    Amid the enchanting Westfjords of Iceland stands Ísafjörður, a fishing town thriving with local energy and culture. Summer months here are brisk, but it’s this cool climate combined with breathtaking and quaint scenery that makes the village feel like an undiscovered treasure. The massive depression among the flat-topped mountains called Naustahvilft – known colloquially as the troll seat – combines Iceland’s natural beauty with the town’s rich folklore. Make a stop at Dokkan Brugghús, the only brewery in the entire Westfjords, and sample the local beers, crafted with naturally filtered spring water from the nearby mountains. For those for whom the sea’s siren call beckons, you must visit the Westfjord History Museum, based on Ísafjörður’s maritime heritage and its rise in the fishing industry.

    Day 4: Grimsey, Iceland
    Home to about 100 people — the northernmost inhabited island in Iceland — and one million birds, Grímsey Island is a treasure in the Arctic Circle. The residents enjoy 24 hours of sun throughout the summer, as do the Puffins. Look for the stone sphere marking the edge of the Arctic Circle. Its design makes it easier to move as the Arctic Circle moves, always keeping the true demarcation. Grímsey Island is a birdwatcher’s paradise, filled with various species, including razorbills, kittiwakes, auks and thick-billed murres. Amid the breathtaking landscapes are the island’s basalt columns. These geometric geological structures covered in lush moss dip into the water, creating a mesmerizing scene.

    Day 5: Akureyri, Iceland
    A rich folklore culture abounds in Akureyri, Iceland, put on full display during the city’s festivals throughout the year. Inland, only 50 kilometers south of the Arctic Circle, is the Akureyri Botanical Garden, a remarkable sight with brightly colored flowers and lush greenery. The iconic Akureyrarkirkja (or The Church of Akureyri) designed by architect Guðjón Samúelsson resembles more a 1920s U.S. skyscraper, but within its walls stands an impressive 3,200-pipe organ. Among the local favorite eating spots is Greifinn, a modern restaurant serving a mix of fare from classic burgers to pasta to Tex Mex to salted fish pizza (to honor Iceland’s roots).

    Day 6: Seydisfjordur, Iceland
    The tiny, picturesque village of Seyðisfjörður is the pearl of Iceland. A town of just 700 people, it is hidden at the innermost point of the fjord of the same name. In the valley above town, the river Fjarðará cascades over the hill to create several, beautiful waterfalls, down to the lagoon at the head of the fjord. Throughout the scenic village you’ll also find well-preserved, old wooden buildings, an enticing subject for photography as you walk down Rainbow Street..

    Day 7: Eskifjordur, Iceland
    Taking its name from Mount Esja, the village of Eskifjörður was established as a trading post and today thrives in fishing. The locals proudly claim the streaked peak of Mount Hólmatindur as their personal landmark, as it invokes an epic feeling. Nearby stands the village of Helgustaðir and its famous spar mine, Helgustaðanama. On the eastern end is Randulff’s Sea House, a preserved shore building housing the artifacts of a fishing tradition and a renowned restaurant of the same name. Foodies with a sweet tooth can indulge in treats like snúður – a bread rolled and filled with cinnamon and covered in chocolate, sugar glaze or caramel.

    Day 8: Heimaey, Vestmannaeyjar, Iceland
    Say halló to volcanoes, lava fields, caves, and mountains in the fascinating island of Heimaey – literally translated as Home Island. Part of the Vestmannaeyjar archipelago (Westman Islands), this destination offers views of lush cliffsides and classic Icelandic architecture that will take your breath away. Built around the remains of an excavated home buried by ash during Eldfell’s eruption you’ll find the Eldheimar Museum, which offers an excellent audio guide that takes you through the home and describes the history and events before, during and after the eruption. One of the most iconic landmarks of Vestmannaeyjar, Elephant Rock, lies just off the south coast of Iceland. And there’s no need to squint to see it, because from every angle, you can see a gargantuan elephant in the middle of the sea.

    Surtsey Island, Scenic Navigation, Iceland
    Newly formed from volcanic eruptions in the 1960s, the island of Surtsey’s pristine environment has earned a place among UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. Only open to scientists as a natural laboratory to study plants and animals, few expeditions get the chance to navigate around the young island. Summer brings flocks of puffins to the island, as well as other migratory birds like eiders. Seals consistently make their home on Surtsey throughout the year, which brings orcas to the nearby waters. The flourishing wildlife around the region makes this a dream destination for the explorer spirit.

    Day 9: Reykjavik, Iceland
    In the southwest of Iceland near Faxaflói Bay lies the capital of the country, Reykjavík, simultaneously cosmopolitan and charming. The colorful houses on the horizon create a quaint scene that will make you want to stay forever.Kaleidoscopic views await you at the Harpa Concert Hall, a glittering, glass structure that perfectly exemplifies Iceland’s modern design and will fascinate your inner architect. One of Iceland’s most prominent landmarks is Perlan, originally a group of hot water tanks that was converted to a building that now hosts an exhibition, planetarium, restaurant and observation deck, located atop Öskjuhlíð hill.
