Iceland as focus or part of a wider Arctic

Get the full 360º Viking view of this fascinating island nation aboard our small-scale expedition ships equipped with cool tools for up-close exploring. Experience Iceland’s wilder, untrammeled side on our 11-day Circumnavigation. Take our 6-day Wild Iceland Escape and hit all the highlights in just an active week away. Or range more widely into the northlands, seeing Iceland in the context of its Arctic and sub-Arctic neighbors—Greenland, Norway, the Faroe Islands, and Scotland—and add sightings of polar bears, walrus, whales, and more to Iceland’s array of puffins and sea birds. Music plays a key role in our Iceland expeditions, too. See details below.
