Exclusive Blue Water Package!

Icelandic Loop Special Offer

Discover breathtaking fjords, vast glaciers and boiling geysers on this luxury voyage to Iceland and the Arctic Circle.

Cruise from the colourful and lively city of Reykjavik to the fishing town of Isafjörður, nestled at the heart of its beautiful fjord, surrounded by imposing mountains, before crossing the Arctic Circle to the remote island of Grímsey, a haven for the Atlantic Puffins who nest on the jagged cliffs.

The beautiful city of Akureyri on the serene Eyjafjörður fjord is the gateway to the thundering Goðafoss waterfall, while tranquil Seyðisfjörður is only a short drive from the myriad birds of the Skálanes nature reserve. Discover the volcanic island of Heimaey in the rugged Westmann archipelago and enjoy an overnight stop in Reykjavik, from where it is possible to take an unforgettable Golden Circle tour to Thingvellir national park, Gullfoss Waterfall and the active geyser of Strokkur.

Icelandic Loop Itinerary

Day 1 - UK - Reykjavik (Iceland)

Fly from the UK to Reykjavik and embark Le Champlain.

Day 2 - Isafjordur

In this wild, unspoilt land of lost valleys and vertical cliffs, cruise the beautiful Isafjordur Fjord and visit the picturesque town of Isafjordur, a delightful fishing village whose wooden buildings are dwarfed by the imposing mountains. Explore the maritime culture on an optional excursion to the former fisherman's home at Osvor and the Maritime Museum, followed by a tasting of Icelandic specialties. The more active may choose to join a kayaking trip or a guide walk on Vigur Island.

Day 3 - Grimsey Island

A small island 40km north of Iceland and symbolically located directly on the Arctic Circle, Grimsey is a haven for numerous colonies of birds all along its untamed jagged cliffs. The main resident, and also a symbol of Iceland, is the clown of the sea better known as the puffin.

Day 4 - Akureyri

At the end of a magnificent fjord over 40km long, Akureyri is the gateway to Lake Myvatn, shaped by volcanic eruptions, and the famous 'Waterfall of the Gods' at Godafoss which can be visited on optional excursions.

Day 5 - Seydisfjordur

With its multicoloured wooden houses surrounded by snow-capped mountains and cascading waterfalls, beautiful Seydisfjordur is one of Iceland’s most historically and architecturally interesting towns.

Day 6 - Heimaey

Heimaey is an island buzzing with wildlife with its spectacular vertical cliffs occupied by multitudes of birds including puffins, fulmars and guillemots. Perhaps see the magnificent bird life on a boat trip around the island or learn more about the region's volcanic activity with visits to three volcanoes, a lava field and the Eldheimar Museum.

Day 7 - Reykjavik

Reykjavik's wooden buildings and fishing village sit side by side with a lively new cosmopolitan town. Close by are lava fields and the famous, natural steamy waters of the Blue Lagoon and hot geysers, overlooked by Mount Esja - a range of mountains that appear to change colour in different lights. Why not take the excursion to the Golden Circle to see Gulfoss waterfall, Geysir and Thingvellir National Park.

Day 8 - Reykjavik - UK
