Where stories begin
Cruise to the Land of Fire and Ice to discover one of Europe’s most surprising and most happening cities and its surrounding landscape of volcanoes, waterfalls, thermal pools and geysers, with the chance perhaps to witness the extraordinary Aurora Borealis.
Expore delightful Reykjavik, the colourful Icelandic capital set on a promontory jutting into the crystal clear waters of Faxafloi Bay. Reykjavik, a fascinating city set on a beautiful bay, where colourful wooden buildings contrast with the rugged surroundings. With a host of restaurants, bars, cafés and shops, Reykjavík justifies its claim to be amongst Europe’s most ‘happening’ cities. See several striking buildings like the Lutheran Cathedral, the University Quarter and the towering Hallgrim’s Church.
Perhaps take time to enjoy world-renowned ‘Blue Lagoon’ outdoor spa.
Journey into the pristine countryside beyond, where the skies, free from light pollution, provide an opportunity to view the breath-taking Northern Lights on clear nights, when the phenomenon takes place.
Take in extraordinary Thingvellir, a great lava arena that was site of the world’s oldest national parliament, Thingvallavatn, Iceland’s largest freshwater lake, the ‘original’ Geysir after which all others are named, and the stunning Gullfoss waterfall, Iceland’s most beautiful natural wonder.
