Iceland, a geothermal island of delightful mystery, is an increasingly popular destination for cruise holidays with a difference. This is a country of dramatic, unspoilt landscapes. Its small population means it’s easy to get out into the middle of nowhere. And, when you do fancy heading back to the crowds, there are charming towns to visit.
The main appeal of an Icelandic cruise is the incredible scenery you’ll experience along the way. Iceland is country of volcanoes, glaciers, mossy green plains and thundering waterfalls. It’s scenery that will stay with you forever. And, if admiring these natural wonders from afar isn’t enough, go hiking, whale watching, ice climbing or horse riding to get even closer to the heart of this beautiful country.
As well as wild natural beauty, Iceland boasts vibrant and cosmopolitan cities. The world’s most northerly capital, Reykjavik, is home to an exciting music and arts scene. It’s a laidback place to shop for handicrafts (knitwear is something of a speciality), sample local cuisine and stumble upon a little live music.
Is seeing the Northern Lights high on your travel wish list? Iceland is one of the best destinations for the Aurora Borealis. With a bit of luck, you’ll be able to catch a glimpse of this awe-inspiring visual display on your trip. Book your Iceland cruise during the winter months and you have a better chance of seeing this natural spectacle.
After all that crisp Icelandic air and exhilarating adventure, you can head back on board your ship to warm up and get ready for an evening of delicious food and fantastic entertainment. Contact one of our experienced cruise consultants today to turn your dream Iceland cruise into a reality.
