Your cruise at a glance

Hand-crafted highlights

Our team has designed this cruise to unveil the remarkable wonders of Iceland, a country aptly referred to as the ‘Land of Fire and Ice’ due to its unique combination of geological features. You can encounter powerful waterfalls like Goðafoss and Gullfoss, spectacular glaciers including Langjökull and Drangajökull and the spurting Strokkur geyser. Immerse yourself in Icelandic identity through folklore, delving into tales of trolls and elves, and enjoy wellness activities such as bathing in hot springs, fishing and horse riding. What’s more, we’ve timed your Bolette cruise to give you chances to encounter wildlife such as puffins and humpback whales. You can also learn how Iceland harnesses energy from its natural landscapes.

Highlights

Godafoss waterfall, Iceland

Land of Fire & Ice

Iceland is a land of enticing volcanic landscapes, spouting geysers, thundering waterfalls and striking glaciers. The ethereal beauty of Goðafoss Waterfall, "Waterfall of the Gods", is enhanced by its stature in the mythical roots of the country. Other waterfalls of note are the two-tiered Gullfoss Waterfall, which can be witnessed on the Golden Circle tour, along with Þingvellir National Park, and the Geysir geothermal area; Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, which can be fully encircled as it tumbles down the steep cliff face; and Dynjandi, first in a series of seven waterfalls and magnificent to observe. Strokkur geyser must be witnessed, as it spouts water high into the air; and do join us to explore the frozen world of Langjökull glacier, ice caves buried under ice and snow, whose shapes and colours are constantly changing as the glacier constantly moves.

Blue Lagoon, Iceland

Icelandic Identity

Iceland is steeped in Viking heritage blended perfectly with modern influences, which can be seen in everyday life, such as the wellness culture of relaxing in the hot springs of the Blue Lagoon in Reykjavik and Myvatn from Akureyri, kept at a consistently warm temperature by the country's geothermal power. Immerse yourself in local traditions and enjoy a horseback ride across volcanic landscapes, or experience a hike over impressive lava fields. You will also have the chance to discover the rich folklore of Iceland, abundant with epic tales of trolls and elves.

Puffins on a cliff in Iceland

Go in search of whales and puffins

This cruise aboard Bolette has been designed for you to experience marine and birdlife at the very best time of year in Iceland before the whales and puffins head south after the summer. The nutrient-rich waters of Akureyri are renowned for being a prime feeding region for humpback and minke whales. Atlantic puffins breed here, distinguishable by their colourful beaks, and can be seen on tour from Reykjavik; along with other bird species including fulmars, cormorants and black guillemots.
