Iceland Circumnavigation Expedition Cruise

Unspoiled nature, breathtaking landscapes and a vibrant culture – Iceland has it all. This wild island boasts some of Europe’s most impressive natural wonders—massive glaciers, barren highlands, rumbling volcanoes, vast lava fields, deep gorges and fjords, geysers, and thermal pools.

This Iceland Circumnavigation Expedition Cruise reveals both natural wonders and the Icelandic way of living. Join us on an incredible journey starting in Reykjavik, before embarking the 224-passenger Ocean Diamond for a nine-night cruise. This super-yacht is ideally suited for our explorations and can take us deep into fjords and small harbours to reach remote places and experience innovative adventures.

Daily included shore excursions, designed exclusively for our group and led by experienced naturalists, geologists and historians, bring the unique character of Iceland closer to you. You’ll be hiking the volcanic coastline, whale-watching, sailing among huge icebergs, walking on black sand beaches, and admiring thunderous waterfalls. Iceland is rich in epic sagas and heroic legends; you’ll learn Viking lore from onboard experts.

Join us to experience the raw power of Iceland’s ice-capped volcanoes, thundering waterfalls, dazzling glaciers, and exploding geysers.
