Witness Iceland’s extraordinary nature on our Iceland Land of Fire and Ice Cruise
Geysers and glaciers, lava flows and volcanic craters, bubbling mud pools, stunning waterfalls and geothermal hot springs, Iceland Land of Fire and Ice Cruise will introduce you to one of the world’s most dynamic landscapes. You’ll step ashore in four fascinating ports of call as you circumnavigate the spectacular ‘Land of Fire and Ice’. Historic Bristol and the stunning Faroe Islands are stepping-stones on this exciting voyage.
Kollafjørður, Faroe Islands
Kollafjørdur is a small fishing port on the Faroe island of Streymoy. The village stretches over four miles along the northern shore of the Kollafjørdur Fjord. From the port of Kollafjørdur optional excursions visit the island communities that live on this isolated archipelago where the landscape is both wild and dramatic.
The Icelandic capital of Reykjavík has a quirky character.With almost 24 hours of daylight during the summer, it truly becomes the city that never sleeps, where you can enjoy a number of popular activities including whale-watching, sea-fishing, horse-back-riding and trips to the many natural wonders nearby.
Located just below the Arctic Circle, Isafjördur is the largest town in the Westfjords region of Iceland. There are only three roads leading out of the town and all are through tunnels. The Westfjords region is a nature lover’s paradise and a popular excursion visits the magical island of Vigur..
Akureyri lies at the head of the 60-kilometre long Eyjafjördur, which is the longest fjord in Iceland. The capital of the north, it is home to both the northernmost botanical garden and northernmost golf course in the world! Optional excursions include Iceland’s extraordinary landscapes, the lunar-like pseudo-craters at Skutastadir and the stunning, crescent-shaped Godafoss Waterfall.
