Iceland Cruise Highlights

Home to the northernmost capital city in the world (Reykjavik), Iceland is the home of legends & landscapes. On an Iceland cruise, you will follow in the ancient footsteps of explorer Leif Erikson, as you discover some of the most isolated and unspoiled natural sites in the world.

Highlights of any Iceland cruise excursion include:
  • Navigating these fascinating sites aboard luxurious and intimate ships & boats.
  • Learning about the rich human history from expert guides. 
  • Witnessing the geysers that burst from the ground.
  • Trekking across the glaciers that shaped Iceland.
  • Exploring the distinct fjords that can only be found in this part of the world.
  • Visiting the isolated fishing villages & learning about the villagers' lifestyle.
Getting to Iceland

Since Iceland is isolated from the rest of Europe in the north Atlantic Ocean, there are only two ways to get there:

By air: Direct flights to Iceland from Europe are about 4-5 hours. From North America, they are 5-6 hours. From other countries, you will have to transfer in Europe. Most flights arrive to the Keflavik International Airport.

By sea: Many of our Scandinavian cruises include stops in Iceland as well.
