You’re in for an unforgettable adventure, as you go in search of the wonders, wildlife and unique cultural highlights of Iceland’s beautiful landscapes and waterways. From Reykjavik, gateway to some of the country’s greatest and most famous sites, you could take a tour to explore the Golden Circle and witness the natural power of the Gullfoss Waterfall and gushing Geysir hot springs or head for the Blue Lagoon for a dip in its thermal waters. Within the Westfjords, perhaps take the opportunity to take a boat tour to Vigur Island from Ísafjörður, to watch puffins in their natural habitat.[ReadMore]

When you visit Akureyri, you’ll be ideally placed to head to the Godafoss ‘Waterfall of the Gods’ and tranquil Lake Mývatn. Though for an experience of a lifetime, you could join a boat tour and seek out humpback and minke whales, dolphins and porpoises living freely in the surrounding waters. Also on board will be representatives from ORCA, who will help you spot whales and dolphins, and other marine life. At scenic Seyðisfjörður, you can savour scenes of towering mountains and colourful houses; or perhaps tour to the enchanting Skálanes Nature and Heritage Centre. Throughout your adventure, you’re also in for unforgettable scenic cruising experiences; see the landscapes of Eyjafjörður, verdant, sparsely populated Hrísey and Borgarfjordur Eystri – home to a large population of elves, according to local folklore.

Balmoral, carrying up to 1,350 guests is small enough to navigate narrow waterways such as the Kiel Canal, and bring inspirational sights and experiences closer to you.

Like the rest of the fleet, Balmoral conveys a warm, welcoming atmosphere and features comfortable accommodation and lounges, stylish restaurants and plenty of open-deck space.
