From whales to geysers, waterways to geothermal pools, the thrilling diversity of Iceland awaits your discovery on an incredible voyage. Exploring three sides of this astonishing country aboard Boudicca, you’ll be left spellbound by spectacular landscapes, awe-inspiring nature, amazing wildlife and the delights of four remarkable ports of call.

Scenic cruising by Eyjafjallajökull Volcano, which famously erupted in 2010; Elliðaey Island, home of the ‘world’s most isolated house’; and the unusual Elephant Rock kicks-off your Icelandic adventure, en route to the enchanting capital, Reykjavik. [ReadMoreMob]World famous natural wonders are all within your reach here; you could marvel at the thundering Gullfoss Waterfall and feel the heat from powerful geysers within the fabled Golden Circle. [ReadMoreDesk] Alternatively, visit the Blue Lagoon to bathe in warm geothermal waters; or simply make the most of your two-day stay in Reykjavik to take in the city’s contemporary art galleries, quirky cafés and striking architecture. Within the scenic Westfjord, a visit to Ísafjörður – situated on the banks of one of Iceland’s deepest fjords – then offers a chance to uncover the beautifully preserved timber houses and friendly cafés of this quaint town. You can immerse yourself in untouched fjord scenery on a kayaking tour here too; or even head to Vigur Island by boat to observe charming puffins in their natural habitat. 

Sailing along the north coast, Boudicca will take you deep into Eyjafjörður – Iceland’s longest fjord – all the way to Akureyri, gateway to the glorious Godafoss ‘Waterfall of the Gods’ and beautiful Lake Mývatn. For an experience of a lifetime, you can embark on a magical whale watching tour from Akureyri to seek out and see Humpback and Minke whales, dolphins and porpoises swimming and living freely in Iceland’s cold, azure waters. Finally, arriving at Seyðisfjörður – one of the most picturesque ports on the stunning east coast – affords you an opportunity to savour scenes of towering mountains and colourful houses; or perhaps tour to the enchanting Skálanes Nature and Heritage Centre. In addition to your unforgettable Icelandic exploration, your cruise will also include a visit to Scotland’s rugged, captivating Orkney Islands and time in Tórshavn, capital of the pretty Faroe Islands.
