Cruise Overview

Iceland cruise - Elemental Iceland – Circular Saga from Reykjavík

Explore Iceland’s coastline in its entirety and see some of the country’s most captivating sights on this full circumnavigation, starting and ending in Reykjavík.

Experience the geological wonders of the land of ice and fire, from volcanoes and glaciers to geysers and hot springs.

Go whale watching in Húsavík, see Atlantic Puffins in Bakkagerði and Heimaey and sail into the Arctic Circle.

A saga of old and new

In Reykjavík, you'll get a taste of modern Iceland, with its stylish restaurants, boutiques and galleries, as well as its museums detailing Icelandic history and culture through the ages. As you voyage around the world’s youngest country you’ll see how geology has shaped the lives of those who live here.  

Raw natural beauty

Discover Iceland's starkly beautiful, volcanic scenery – with active volcanoes, geysers, glaciers, mountains and waterfalls. The country offers some of the best whale watching in Europe at this time of year. And among the Arctic birdlife, keep an eye out for colonies of Atlantic Puffins.
