Spot polar bears, walrus, reindeer and arctic foxes in their natural habitat, while thousands of seabirds, beluga whales track our voyage through this unforgettable icy wilderness.

In the north, we’ll cross the Arctic Circle via Grímsey Island, home to Iceland’s largest puffin colony. From Höfn we’ll explore Vatnajökull National Park’s thundering waterfalls and floating icebergs. On a visit to Heimay we’ll learn about its dark past and recent volcanic eruption. We’ll conclude our cruise in cosmopolitan Reykjavik.
