Follow the ancient Vikings this summer and discover the North Atlantic with a unique circumnavigation cruise around Iceland.
Sailing out of Reykjavik, explore the waters and coastline around Iceland in the 226-passenger expedition ship M/V Ocean Diamond. Save from $3190US / $4145CA on a second traveller’s fare when you book a Circumnavigation Cruise in April in a Balcony Suite, Family Cabin, or Outside Cabin.
The popular Iceland Circumnavigation itinerary offers a 10-day voyage around the entire country, with stops at the volcanic Westman Islands, historic fishing villages like Ísafjörður, wildlife-rich Grimsey above the Arctic Circle, the “heaven and hell” landscapes of the Lake Myvatn region, and the ruggedly beautiful Snaefellnes Peninsula, where Jules Verne set his epic Journey to the Center of the Earth.
With an ice-strengthened hull and advanced onboard technology, the M/V Ocean Diamond is able to explore and anchor in fjords, bays and harbors that are off limits to larger cruise ships. During these voyages of discovery, onboard experts offer insight into the unique nature, geology, culture, and history of Iceland and Greenland while travellers are pampered with a level of comfort, cuisine, and service rarely seen in such remote regions.
As Iceland is currently such a popular destination, accommodation on the mainland is in short supply during the summer high season. The voyage on the Ocean Diamond solves that problem as it offers not only transportation, but also a floating hotel.
To round out your visit to Iceland, Goway also offers pre- and post-cruise adventures throughout the country. From the famed Blue Lagoon, to self-drive options in rental cars, to motor coach tours, Goway has all your Iceland needs covered.
Touching on the shores of Iceland only scratches the surface of its unique history. Delve into the history of Iceland, and see why the troublemakers of yesteryear are now national heroes.
Writer Joe Yogerst describes it thus:
“Iceland was settled by the outcasts from mainstream Viking civilization in Norway and Denmark. Many of the pioneers were the baddest of the bad, the weirdest of the weird. Men like Erik the Red were considered so radical, so violent, so off-the-wall, they were judged unfit for what was already a pretty bad ass society. Struggling against extreme weather and stark geography, they were forced to build a new society from scratch on the remote North Atlantic isle. Twelve hundred years later, that largely untamed society is now the modern nation of Iceland.”
