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 OCEAN DIAMOND 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.

Day 2 STYKKISHOLMUR (B, L, D)

Stykkisholmur is the starting point of our adventures on the Snæfellnes Peninsula. Often called "Iceland in Miniature" because of its it diverse landscapes, the area is home to bird-rich Breidafjördur Bay and Snæfellsjökull glacier, which sits atop a 700,000-year-old dormant volcano that was featured in the Jules Verne novel Journey to the Center of the Earth.

Day 3 ISAFJÖRDUR (B, L, D)

Today's destination is Isafjördur, 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  areas without roads, 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.

Day 4 SIGLUFJÖRDUR (B, L, D)

By morning we reach the fjord town of Siglufjördur, 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. Later we set sail for Akureyri, Iceland's lovable second largest city. If weather conditions allow, we visit Hrisey, the second largest island of Iceland. With only 153 inhabitants, the island is located in Eyjafjördur, about 35 kilometers north of Akureyri.

Day 5 AKUREYRI (B, L, D)

Ranging inland from Akureyri, we visit the fascinating Lake Myvatn region, where the schizophrenic landscape looks as if "heaven and hell" have clashed. One side of the lake features rugged volcanic remnants, while the other side is blessed with lush vegetation and varied bird life.

Day 6 SKJALFANDI BAY - HUSAVIK (B, L, D)

In the early morning hours we steam into Skjalfandi Bay and Husavik. Often called the "Whale watching capital" of Iceland, the town's offshore waters are home to 15 different whale species, as well as dolphins and 30 variety of birds.

Day 7 SEYDISFJÖRDUR (B, L, D)

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

Day 8 DJUPIVOGUR (B, L, D)

The fishing village of Djupivogur is today's starting point to explore Vatnajökull Glacier (optional). Go on a four wheel-drive Jeep tour (optional) or take a boat trip in the Jökulsarlon Glacier Lagoon (optional). Icebergs of all shapes and sizes are floating in the water - an unforgettable adventure.

Day 9 VESTMANNAEYAR - WESTMAN ISLANDS (B, L, D)

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.

Day 10 REYKJAVIK - DEPARTURE (B)

After breakfast we bid farewell to the OCEAN DIAMOND 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. 

Please note: If you book return flights on your own please choose a connection that does not depart before noon from Keflavik airport on the same day the OCEAN DIAMOND arrives in Reykjavik.
