Day 1: Embark in Reykjavik

Use your leisure time in Reykjavík to uncover the unique charm of the world’s northernmost capital. The MS Seaventure 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 in the evening.

Day 2: Arnarstapi | Grundarfjordur

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

Day 3: Isafjordur

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Today‘s destination is Isafjördur, an idyllic town in Westfjords region. This secluded peninsula is connected to the mainland by only a narrow strip of land and includes areas where cars have never been. The landscape provides jaw-dropping views of dramatic fjords carved by ancient glaciers, sheer table mountains plunging into the sea, and untouched vegetation. Optional excursions may be available, please ask us for more information.

Day 4: Siglufjordur | Grimsey

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
By morning we reach the fjord town of Siglufjordur, once the hub of the global herring industry and now enjoying a rebirth in popularity. Learn about the golden age of herring at the award-winning Herring Era Museum located on the vibrant harbor-front. In the early afternoon we head to Grimsey. Grimsey is about 40 km to the north from Iceland, right on the Arctic Circle. Here you can see many species of birds, including puffins, Guillemots and various species of gulls.

Husavik is 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 7: Seydisfjordur

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
To explore Iceland’s East Fjords, the ship docks in the impossibly picturesque port of Seydisfjördur. This fishing village is nestled between steep mountain slopes and panoramic sea views.

Day 9: Vestmannaeyjar (Westman Islands)

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Located off the coast of South Iceland, the island group Vestmannaeyjar was formed by submarine volcanic eruptions 10,000 years ago. Surtsey Island emerged from the sea in 1963 and is one the youngest places on earth! You have the chance to go ashore on Heimaey, the only inhabited island of the archipelago. Here evidence of Iceland’s volcanic fury is on full display with half-buried houses in ash from a violent eruption in 1973 when the entire island had to be evacuated. Aboard Zodiacs you get to circumnavigate the island to take in the magical scenery and stop at places of interest to see the local bird life, visit caves and possibly spot whales. Here you have the once-in-a-lifetime chance to play a round of golf in a sunken volcano crater!

Day 10: Reykjavik | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
This morning, bid farewell to the MS Seaventure and after breakfast greet your final destination of Reykjavík.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
