Iceland, Land of the Vikings

Experience the spectacular scenery and friendly people of Iceland

 

Talk to any seasoned traveller and one destination seems to pop up on everyone’s bucket list: Iceland! With its cool glacial beauty and the welcoming warmth of its people, it’s no wonder that this relatively small island has more visitors than residents each year. Iceland’s popularity with intrepid visitors continues, and while many have enjoyed this nation’s breathtaking natural beauty by land, the opportunity to set sail from port to port is especially unique.

Join Craig Travel on our Land of the Vikings cruise, as we circumnavigate the entirety of Iceland on board the intimate and luxurious ms Ocean Diamond. With a capacity of just 210 guests, this smaller ship allows us to navigate a route of fjords and bays that larger vessels simply can’t manage. During this spectacular 11 day voyage, we will visit the top tourist destinations along with some lesser known hidden gems that can only be accessed by sea.

Often referred to as the Land of Ice and Fire, we will experience Iceland’s many natural wonders including cascading geysers, magnificent glaciers, astonishing waterfalls, and even some active volcanos. For those of you photographers at heart, possible animal sightings include puffins, seals, whales and dolphins. From aboard the comfort of our ship we will experience the ever-changing landscape of floating icebergs and dramatic fjords carved by ancient glaciers.

Porting, we will visit charming fishing villages and enjoy meals of freshly caught seafood along the wharfs. For those with an adventurous spirit, available activities include horseback riding, snowmobiling, and guided glacial hikes. Of course, no visit to Iceland would be complete without a stop at the world famous Blue Lagoon Spa, where we will enjoy the mineral-rich geothermal hot sprigs and rejuvenate ourselves before heading home.

Iceland’s breathtaking beauty continues to be a huge draw for travellers, and based on the popularity of our cruises over the last few years, we expect this trend to continue. If Iceland is at the top of your list, make sure to reserve your space early. Take advantage of our big savings of $900-$3,000* per person if you book your cruise before December 20th, 2019.
