On a cruise to Iceland you'll experience a land steeped in Nordic tradition, sweeping landscapes of glaciers, fjords, & steaming volcanoes. In the capital of Reykjavik, you’ll see whalebone artifacts from the medieval Norse period & the impressive Hallgrimskirkja Cathedral. Explore the rugged coastlines, carved over millennia by glaciers and now home to stunning geysers and fjords that can be explored by Zodiac from your cruise ship. A cruise through the Western Fjords will introduce you to one of the most isolated and pristine wildernesses in the northern hemisphere. Here, you'll find Ísafjörður, considered one of the most beautiful inlets in the country. Iceland also serves as a great departure point for Arctic expeditions, including trips to Norway & Greenland.
