Day 1 Reykjavik | Embark

The Ocean Diamond docks in Old Reykjavík Harbor in the heart of the city, a five minute stroll to the main squares, shopping and dining. The ship departs Reykjavík harbor at 8 p.m.

Day 2 Stykkisholmur

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Stykkisholmur is the starting point of your adventures on the Snaefellnes Peninsula. Often called “Iceland in Miniature” because of its diverse landscapes, the area is home to bird-rich Breidafjordur Bay and Snaefellsjokull glacier, which sits atop a 700,000-year-old dormant volcano that was featured in the Jules Verne novel Journey to the Center of the Earth.

Day 3 Isafjördur

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Today‘s destination is Isafjordur, an idyllic town in the Westfjords region. This secluded peninsula is connected to the Icelandic mainland by only a narrow strip of land and includes many roadless areas where cars have never been. The landscape includes jaw-dropping views of dramatic fjords carved by ancient glaciers, sheer table mountains that plunge into the sea, and pristine North Atlantic vegetation.

Day 4 Akureyri

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Ranging inland from Akureyri, visit the fascinating Lake Myvatn region, where the schizophrenic landscape looks as if “heaven and hell” have clashed. One side of the lake features rugged volcanic remnants, while the other side is blessed with lush vegetation and varied bird life.

Day 5 Husavik

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In the early morning hours steam into Skjalfandi Bay and Husavik. Often called the “Whale watching capital” of Iceland, the town’s offshore waters are home to 15 different whale species, as well as dolphins and 30 varieties of birds. Watching these graceful ocean giants in their Arctic habitat is an unforgettable experience.

Day 6 Djupivogur

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Today’s port of call is Djupivogur, a fishing village in southeast Iceland and starting point for an optional excursion to the amazing glacier lagoon. Huge blocks of ice constantly break off the glacier, Breiðamerkurjökull, and large icebergs float on the lagoon. The lagoon is not very wide but it is up to 250 meters deep which makes it the deepest lake in Iceland.

Day 7 Vestmannaeyjar (Westman Islands)

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Located off Iceland’s south coast, the Westman Islands were formed by submarine volcanic eruptions around 10,000 years ago. Surtsey Island emerged from the sea in 1963 and is one the youngest land masses on earth. Go ashore on Heimaey, the only inhabited island, where half-buried houses remain from a violent 1973 eruption. During the shore landing there is time for bird watching and you might even spot whales.

Day 8 Reykjavik | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
In the morning bid farewell to the Ocean Diamond and after breakfast greet your final destination of Reykjavík. Or simply hang out in Reykjavik, a perfect city for those who want to refresh their spirit in a place that combines invigorating outdoor activities, great food and world-class entertainment.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
