Setting sail from Reykjavik
Capital of Iceland and gateway to this extraordinary volcanic island, modern Reykjavik is home to an impressive collection of interesting attractions and places of historic significance. Visit the impressive Hallgrímskirkja church, relax in a thermal pool, potter around the old harbour, and with 24 hour daylight in the summer months, you can play golf at midnight, or choose the perfect place to view the midnight sun such as the lighthouse at Grotta or on the waterfront by Sólfar - the Sun Voyager sculpture. If you're like us, you will find travelling out of Reykjavik by land or sea to be unforgettable.
Visit the impressive Hallgrímskirkja for its amazing architecture, and go up the tower for an extraordinary view of the city.
Iceland: Snæfellsnes Peninsula
The Snæfellsnes Peninsula is like Iceland in miniature, with a varied landscape of lava fields, waterfalls, beaches and basalt cliffs. Looming over everything is the ice-capped Snæfellsjökull volcano, and the peninsula is home to wildlife including seals, whales and puffins.
The remote island of Grímsey lies some 25 miles to the north of the Icelandic mainland, straddling the Arctic Circle. This weather-beaten place has a year-round population of just 60 people, and humans are far outnumbered by the thousands of seabirds that nest on the cliffs, including puffins and Arctic terns.
Iceland: Vatnajökull National Park
Faroe Islands: Vestmanna
The bird cliffs at Vestmanna are one of the most spectacular sights in the Faroe Islands, home to thousands of puffins, razorbills, guillemots and kittiwakes. Take a boat trip to explore the sea caves at the foot of the near-vertical cliffs, and marvel at the waterfalls that cascade down the rock face.
Arriving in Reykjavik
Take a boat tour from Reykjavik’s Old Harbour to see the numerous whales of Faxaflói Bay: harbour porpoises, white-beaked dolphins, minke whales and humpback whales.
