Day 1 REYKJAVIK Reykjavik is the world's northernmost capital. The vibrant city centre is surrounded by glaciers, waterfalls, geysers and volcanoes. We embark MS Fram in the evening, so you have time to acquaint yourself with this charming city before departure. Enjoy the evening on deck, taking in the fresh Icelandic air and beautiful views.
Day 2 GRUNDARFJORDUR (B, L, D) Grundarfjördur is situated in the western area of Iceland on the Snæfellsnes peninsula. This is one of the main settings in the "Laxdæla Saga" - a popular tale telling the story of the people living here (and in Norway) from the 9th until the 11th century. According to this saga, Snæfellsnes was the birthplace of the first West Norse member of the Varangian Guard and other persons of historic significance. Several national sights are found in this area, including the Snæfellsjökull volcano, regarded as one of the symbols of Iceland.
Day 11 KANGERLUSSUAQ - REYKJAVIK (B, L, D) Kangerlussuaq is situated in the end of the Kangerlussuaq fjord. The settlement/airport lies just north of the Arctic Circle and is one of the best places to observe native wildlife. In the early 1960's musk oxen were introduced to Kangerlussuaq from North East Greenland, and today they count over 5,000. You will leave MS Fram in the morning, followed by a transfer from the docks to the airport in Kangerlussuaq.
Charter flight back to Reykjavik Domestic Airport. Our local guide will welcome you at the airport, and will join you on the transfer bus to your hotel in Reykjavik.
Reykjavik is the world's northernmost capital city and home to 172,200 people. In relative close surroundings of Reykjavik you may find glaciers, waterfalls, geysers and volcanoes. Reykjavik has also a vast selection of restaurants, museums and shops.
The rest of the day is at leisure and overnight at your hotel.
Days 12 REYKJAVIK DEPARTURE (B) Breakfast at your hotel. Check-out and end of services.
