Shrouded in mystery, Iceland is one of the world’s most isolated countries – and also one of its most intriguing. Its largely uninhabited landscape is a fascinating patchwork quilt of lush valleys, vast ice caps, breathtaking active volcanoes, lively geysers, bubbling mud pools and hot springs, whilst its capital Reykjavik is both charmingly quaint and remarkably cosmopolitan. Along the way, you will enjoy two visits to the equally remote – and equally absorbing – Faroe Islands, with their unique Viking culture and stunning land and seascapes.

Land of Ice & Fire Itinerary

Day 1 - Tilbury

Embark your ship at London Tilbury.

Days 2-3 - At Sea

Spend two days at sea, enjoying the ship's facilities at your leisure.

Day 4 - Tórshavn

Enjoy the beauty of the largest (and capital) city of the Faroe Islands, Torshavn, with its marvellous multi-coloured houses.

Day 5 - At Sea

Days 6-7 - Reykjavík

Part-old Norse, part-modern city, Iceland’s capital is both quirky and cosmopolitan. Brightly coloured houses create unique streetscapes, whilst further afield vast lava fields, bubbling mud pools, crashing waterfalls, and spouting geysers will fire your imagination.

Day 8 - Grundarfjørdur

Grundarfjordur is a charming fishing village centrally located on the north coast of Snaefellsnes peninsula. The town lies deep in a beautiful fjord surrounded by mountains with the striking Mount Kirkjufell standing out as the majestic landmark. The surrounding fjord is abundant in marine-life and in winter orca whales can be seen swimming near the shore, chasing Iceland’s delicious herring. The area has also become a known sanctuary for the white tailed eagle which is the largest predatory bird in Iceland.

Day 9 - Isafjørdur

Two colossal terraces of sheer rock stand either side of this extraordinarily located town - which rides a jutting spit onto an immensity of black fjord water. Surprisingly, considering the remoteness of its location and its compact size, Isafjordur is a modern and lively place to visit, offering a great choice of cafes and delicious restaurants – which are well stocked to impress visitors. The town is a perfectly located base for adventures amongst Iceland's fantastic wilderness - with skiing, hiking and water-sports popular pursuits among visitors.

Day 10 - Akureyri

Akureyri enjoys a spectacular location at the head of Eyjafjordur, Iceland’s longest fjord, and is a visual delight with its colourful houses, beautifully tended lawns and the world’s northernmost botanical garden and golf course.

Day 12 - Klaksvik

Set on opposite banks of a river amid sky-scraping peaks, the Faroes’ second city has one of the most breath-taking settings in the world.

Days 11-12 - At Sea

Day 13 - Lerwick, Shetland Islands

Founded by Dutch fishermen in the 17th century, Lerwick today is a busy town and administrative center. Handsome stone buildings known as lodberries line the harbour. The town's twisting flagstone lanes and harbour once heaved with activity, and Lerwick is still an active port today.

Day 15 - Tilbury

Just 22 nautical miles down river from the Tower Bridge in London, Tilbury is a popular turnaround port for cruises visiting Baltic and Northern European destinations.
