Join us for a journey in Iceland—an island nation of geologic wonder and Nordic tradition. Sailing on a luxurious ship, extraordinary vistas and new adventures unfold at every turn. Boiling mud pots, crashing waterfalls, breaching whales, singing Arctic birdlife, postcard-perfect hamlets. There's no place on Earth quite like it. Your Iceland discovery awaits.
- Explore this island nation with 130 volcanoes (with about 30 active systems!), Europe's largest glacier and a summer sun that never sleeps
- Hike volcanic moonscapes and crater rims, craggy seaside cliffs and untamed islands on off-the-beaten-path excursions
- Bike through fishing villages and windswept coastlines with sweeping views of the blue north Atlantic, snowy mountains and jagged rock formations
- Relax on board your luxurious and intimate Ponant superyacht—with fine French cuisine, open-air lounges, a pool and spa treatments
Days 1-2 Hike to the heart of geothermal power in the rugged landscape around the active Mount Hengill volcano | Discover bubbling mud pots, a hidden cascade and a steaming waterfall, then dip a toe (or take a soak!) in the thermal waters | Journey through Snæfellsjökull National Park's quintessential landscapes—seaside cliffs, otherworldly rock formations and rolling farmlands | Bike along the coast, looking for kittiwakes, gulls and arctic terns | While sailing, grab a pair of binoculars and search for whales and seabirds.
Days 3-4 Head out on foot to explore the vibrant green island of Grímsey—home to over 60 species of birds and one of the largest colonies of the Atlantic puffin | View striking basalt columns formed by heavy lava flow meeting the cold sea | Between the north Atlantic and snowcapped mountains, pedal along Eyjafjördur through quaint fishing villages.
Days 5-6 Join our local guide to explore the town of Ísafjördur | Stroll through the village of Súdavík with views of the largest fjord in the Westfjords | Hike through Valagil ravine and see a mighty waterfall | On the island of Heimaey, climb to the crater rim of Eldfell Volcano, where panoramic vistas await.
Day 7 Begin your last full day in Iceland with a hike in the Esjan volcanic mountain range, the backdrop of Reykjavík's skyline | Hike past streams to vistas of valleys, mountains, ocean and the city | Give your legs a rest on a scenic tour atop your hardy Icelandic horse | Gather for a farewell dinner on ship and toast your unforgettable journey.
Day 8 Enjoy a leisurely breakfast on board before bidding farewell and disembarking in Reykjavík or Hafnarfjördur.
