Explore Unesco designated areas such as Krysuvik and Tingvellir, the geothermal wonders of Gullfoss and Geysir before travelling to Ilulissat - 300 kilometres north of the Polar Circle and home to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Ilulissat Icefjord

Iceland's Golden Circle combined with Ilulissat; The Town of Icebergs.

Reykjavik (Iceland)

A true blend of the past and present. You will find all facilities of a metropolis as well as the warm friendliness of a small town.

This programme suits clients who do not want to change accommodation every day and like to have several options of evening restaurants and city facilities within close range.

Reykjavik is the ideal base for excursions to the most famous highlights of South Iceland:

  • The Blue Lagoon.
  • The majestic waterfall Gullfoss.
  • The Geysir area with erupting hot springs.
  • The National Park of Thingvellir; a historic site through centuries and a masterpiece of nature with a scenic lake and rifts which mark where the continental plates of Europe and America meet.

Ilulissat (Greenland)

Explore this modern Greenlandic town north of the Polar Circle and experience the unique Disko Bay:

Calving glaciers and gigantic icebergs: Majestic icebergs are situated in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ilulissat Ice Fjord right outside the town and can be experienced at close range on our Midnight Cruises or during full day excursions where we cruise close to the impressive glacier of Eqip.

Isolated Settlements: On other excursions we sail to small and remote settlements, where "the old world" and the Greenlandic hunters still live much according to ancient traditions.
