Hand-crafted highlights

From geysers and waterfalls to glaciers and lava tunnels, the ‘Land of Fire and Ice’ boasts an abundance of geothermal attractions waiting to be discovered. The powerful Goðafoss Waterfall and the remarkable Raufarhólshellir lava tunnel are especially rewarding to witness, alongside the uniquely shaped peaks of Hornbjarg in the remote Westfjords region, visible from the comfort of Bolette. Uncovering folklore tales of trolls and elves, bathing in hot springs and hiking amidst remarkable scenery provides an immersive experience into Icelandic culture. You can gain an insight into how the country harnesses energy from its natural landscapes, particularly through geothermal and hydroelectric power sources.

Highlights

Godafoss waterfall, Iceland

Discover the land of fire & ice

 

Iceland is often referred to as 'The Land of Fire & Ice' due to its contrasting landscapes of volcanoes, geysers, glaciers and waterfalls. From Akureyri, explore the awe-inspiring Godafoss Waterfall, cascading over a curved edge into a deep pool below; while the Golden Circle tour offers the chance to experience Thingveller National Park, Strokkur Geysir, and the impressive Gullfoss Waterfall, whose spray creates a rainbow effect. Close by is the Langjökull glacier, an enormous ice cap,  home to turquoise-coloured ice caves. You will also have the chance to visit Dynjandi Waterfall and the sheer cliffs of Hornbjarg.

Blue Lagoon, Iceland

Iceland's unique identity

 

Iceland is a unique destination with a strong sense of cultural identity, which has shaped the country with ancient traditions, blended seamlessly with modern influences. Embrace the wellness culture of bathing in hot springs such as the Blue Lagoon or Sky Lagoon, visited from Reykjavik; or Myvatn Nature Baths, located close to Akureyri. Enjoy a horseback ride across the wilderness from Seyðisfjörður, or hike amongst volcanic landscapes. You will also have the chance to discover rich stories of Iceland's folklore, with legends of trolls and elves at every turn.

Humpback whale fluking tail

Seeking out whales

 

The nutrient-rich waters of Iceland are said to be some of the best in the world for attracting whales and other cetaceans, so we've timed this Bolette cruise for you to have the best chance of seeing majestic humpback whales before they head south. To see them breach out of the water is a humbling experience, creating memories that will last a lifetime. You may also see blue, fin, sperm and minke whales, orcas and white-beaked dolphins.
