If you love horses, you’re in luck–your next destination, Skagafjörður, is the only county in Iceland where horses outnumber people. During an overnight stay in Akureyri, marvel at the snow-capped mountain peaks, stunning fjords, and lush countryside. More wildlife awaits in Husavik: known as the whale-watching capital of Iceland, the waters surrounding this coastal town are home to humpbacks, minke, and the mammoth blue whale.
Your final Iceland destination is Seydisfjordur, boasting some of the country’s most unique architecture, natural beauty, and friendly faces. Take two days at sea to reflect on the unforgettable experiences you’ve collected in Iceland before concluding your voyage in cool Copenhagen.
Highlights of this cruise:
The whale-watching capital of Iceland, Husavik sits on the eastern shore of Skjálfandi Bay, where humpbacks, minke, and blue whales breach the waves and slap the water with their enormous fins. Geothermal springs south of town are the perfect spot to relax, while the Exploration Museum pays tribute to adventures mapping the globe, and beyond.
Set on the shores of one of Iceland’s most spectacular fjords, with a backdrop of snow-capped mountains, Akureyri is quite a sight to behold. Only 60 miles from the Arctic Circle, summer temperatures can soar as high as 60°F. No surprise then that a main attraction is the Botanical Gardens, where over 2,000 species of native and non-native plants flourish without benefit of a greenhouse.
Carved from fire and ice, Reykjavik is a city of contrasts at the edge of the world. Charming wood houses blend with cutting-edge designs, and avant-garde galleries mingle with local markets where locals love to gather. Plus, its natural beauty is beyond breathtaking.
Fairy-tale architecture and avant-garde modern designs create an enchanting atmosphere in Scandinavia's largest city. Copenhagen's quality of life is exceptional, with countless green spaces and bicycle paths—offering you every opportunity to take in the culture and cuisine of the City of Spires.
