Spectacular Island Landscapes
Discover the stark but stunning scenery of the Land of Ice and Fire as Columbus cruises north from Tilbury. After time to explore the cobbled streets, squares and harbourside of Rotterdam, and the remote island capitals of Kirkwall on Orkney and Torshavn in the Faroes, you'll spend four days following the coast of Iceland anticlockwise.
The fascinating history and culture of the island-nation will be revealed as you call at four fascinating ports, including the Icelandic capital, Reykjavik, where brightly painted buildings contrast sharply with the natural beauty of its setting beneath Mount Ejsa. Take the lift to the top of the Hallgrimskirkja Church for a panoramic view, or visit the fascinating Arbaer Folk Museum and the Saga Museum.
