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.

Our tip

Visit the impressive Hallgrímskirkja for its amazing architecture, and go up the tower for an extraordinary view of the city.

Arriving in Edinburgh

Edinburgh - what a city! The capital city of Scotland has some striking and varied architecture, an imposing Castle, memorable museums and galleries and some wonderful restaurants. And what we love best about this buzzing city is that you can always look up, and there's the beautiful countryside - the Seven Hills - surrounding you. It's a city of inexhaustible delights; in one day alone you could see the Scottish Crown Jewels and Stone of Destiny, follow the Royal Mile to explore narrow closes steeped in history, and go to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Edinburgh Dungeon and the Scottish Parliament.

Don't miss

Walk through Grassmarket to see some of Edinburgh’s oldest streets and alleys, and some unusual independent shops where you can find dedicated craftsmen, artisans and experts.

The Ship

Your home from home

Hurtigruten - MS Maud
Hurtigruten - MS Maud - Balcony Suite
Hurtigruten - MS Maud - Explorer Bar

The ship emerged from an extensive refurbishment in 2021, reborn as the biofuel-powered expedition ship MS Maud and sailing year-round from Dover.

What we love

Hurtigruten's commitment to sustainability is reflected in the fact that MS Maud will run on biodiesel, reducing CO2 emissions by up to 80% compared to conventional marine diesel. The ship will be perfectly suited to exploring the rugged coast of Norway, and the inviting suites and public areas represent a significant evolution of the Hurtigruten onboard experience
