Please Note: All routes and excursions are provisional and subject to change as weather and sea conditions may affect the itinerary. Changes in the itinerary are expressly reserved.

Day 1: Reykjavik.

Our optional Air & Ground package provides a convenient arrival. Use your leisure time in Reykjavik to discover the unique charm of the world’s northernmost capital and book one of our pre-programs. Or explore the sights of south and west Iceland on a self-drive road trip. The Seaventure docks in Old Reykjavik Harbor in the heart of the city, a five-minute stroll from the main squares, shopping and dining. The ship departs in the evening at 8:00pm.

Meals: Dinner

Day 2: Arnarstapi-Grundarfjordur.

Depending on the weather, Arnarstapi or Grundarfjordur is the starting point of our adventures on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Often called “Iceland in Miniature” because of its diverse landscapes, the area is home to bird rich Breidafjordur Bay and Snaefellsjokull glacier. This glacier sits atop of a 700,000-year-old dormant volcano that was featured in the Jules Verne novel Journey to the Center of the Earth.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 3: Isafjordur.

Today’s destination is Isafjordur, an idyllic town in the Westfjords region. This secluded peninsula is connected to the Icelandic mainland by only a narrow strip of land and includes many roadless areas where cars have never been. The landscape includes jaw-dropping views of dramatic fjords carved by ancient glaciers, sheer table mountains that plunge into the sea and pristine North Atlantic vegetation.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 4: Siglufjordur-Grimsey.

By morning we reach the fjord town of Siglufjordur, once the hub of the global herring industry and now enjoying a rebirth in popularity. Learn about the golden age of herring at the award-winning Herring Era Museum located on the vibrant harbor front. In the early afternoon we head to Grimsey. Grimsey is about 40 km to the north from Iceland, right on the Arctic Circle. Here you can see many species of birds, including puffins, Guillemots and various species of gulls.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 5: Flatey-Husavik.

In the morning we visit Flatey Island. It´s a natural haven for birdlife and home to the arctic tern and puffins, which can be observed at close quarters. In the early afternoon we steam further into the Skjalfandi Bay and visit Husavik.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 6: Skjalfandi Bay.

In the early morning hours, we steam into Skjalfandi Bay. The bay is home to 15 different whale species, as well as dolphins and 30 variety of birds. Watching these graceful ocean giants in their Arctic habitat is an unforgettable experience.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 7: Seydisfjordur.

Iceland’s East Fjords are best explored from the impossibly picturesque port of Seydisfjordur, nestled between the sea and steep mountains. Activities include seal spotting, horseback riding, and visiting the beautiful nature reserve Skalanes.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 8: Djupivogur.

The fishing village of Djupivogur is today’s starting point to explore Vatnajokull Glacier (opional). Go on a fourwheel-drive Jeep tour (optional) or take a boat trip in the Jokulsarlon Glacier lagoon (opional). Icebergs of all shapes and sizes are floating in the water – an unforgettable adventure on a body of water that didn’t exist at the beginning of the last century, as the lagoon was recently formed by the retreat of the Breidarmerkurjokull Glacier tongue.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 9: Vestmannaeyjar (Westman Islands).

Located off Iceland’s south coast, the Westman Islands were formed by submarine volcanic eruptions around 10,000 years ago. Surtsey Island emerged from the sea in 1963 and is one the youngest land masses on earth. We go ashore on Heimaey, the only inhabited island, where half-buried houses remain from a violent 1973 eruption. During the shore landing there is time for bird watching and you might even spot whales.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 10: Reykjavik.

After breakfast we bid farewell to the Seaventure as we sail back into Reykjavik. Explore inland areas like the Golden Circle and its famous Gullfoss waterfall via our Air & Ground package or explore the sights of south and west Iceland on a self-drive road trip. You can also simply hang out in Reykjavik, a perfect city for those who want to refresh their spirit in a place that combines invigorating outdoor activities, great food and world-class entertainment. Disembarkation is at 8:00am.
