This awe-inspiring cruise combines Iceland’s highlights with its hidden gems. We’ll circle the island, taking in the beauty of the eastern fjords and the wild north coast and calling in at quaint fishing towns. As we go, we’ll keep our eyes peeled for Iceland’s incredible wildlife - whales, dolphins, porpoises and puffins can all be spotted. We’ll spend two days in Reykjavik, where you can choose to explore nearby waterfalls, thermal pools and geysers. Homeward bound, we stop at another wildlife haven: Kirkwall.
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your journey to Dover, where our staff will greet you and assist with embarking Boudicca (3T+) in preparation for a late evening sailing.
Day 2-3 - At sea
Day 4 - Cruising Reyðarfjörður - Eskifjörður, Iceland
Today we sail through tranquil Reyðarfjörður, the longest and widest of Iceland’s beautiful eastern fjords, to Eskifjörður. This charming town has a long tradition as a fishing port and its culture has been shaped by the sea.
Day 5 - Cruising Eyjafjörður - Akureyri (overnight)
The magnificent Eyjafjörður is the longest fjord in Iceland and lies on the migratory routes of many species of whales and birds so it's the perfect place to observe fascinating wildlife in their natural habitat. We then head for Akureyri, a hidden gem that nestles at the head of the fjord. In the summer months, flowering gardens belie the location, just a stone’s throw from the Arctic Circle.
Day 6 - Akureyri
The perfect destination for nature lovers, the waters surrounding the town are teaming with rare, native species such as humpback whales, minke whales, white-beaked dolphins and porpoises. Within reach on tours are incredible natural wonders too, such as the Godafoss ‘Waterfall of the Gods’ and Lake Myvatn.
Day 7 - Ísafjörður
The centre of Ísafjörður is a charming grid of old timber and tin-clad buildings and is a surprisingly cosmopolitan place, with its tempting cafes and fine choice of restaurants. Maybe opt for a hike in the hills around the town, or catch a summer boat across to the remote Hornstrandir Peninsula.
Day 8-9 - Reykjavík (overnight)
Arrive early to experience the capital of Iceland - a small city with a big soul. Choose to see an array of natural wonders, including the Gullfoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls and the Thingvellir National Park or visit the Blue Lagoon Spa or one of the many museums or galleries.
Day 10-11 - At sea
