This ice-breaking vessel provides charming modern salons for guest comfort and a homely atmosphere where guests of all ages will feel welcome.
The highly trained crew of 14 will take the group out on adventures, and the selection of water toys provides guests with a way to experience it up close: Cruise through ice floes on kayaks or within the Hobie tenders, Scuba dive in the crystal clear waters and fish for a mouth-watering supper to be prepared by your expert onboard chef. Dine alfresco with panoramic views or celebrate a special occasion around the grand formal dining table with drinks made expressly at the bar.
From the sundeck, have your camera ready to snap whale pods and birdlife at the Langanes Peninsula, or artists can sit back in the sunshine and take their time capturing the vivid colours of the landscape and sea. The summer sunshine is warm enough for sunbathing, but if guests prefer they can warm up in the Finnish sauna instead.
Iceland is known as ‘the Land of Fire and Ice’ for its striking contrasts from the volcanic activity and glaciers that still shape the land, and the vibrant colours make this country a must-visit destination for artists and photographers alike.
The Reykjanes Peninsula holds myriad volcanic and geothermal wonders such as the famous Blue Lagoon Thermal Bath and black sand beaches along its southern shores. The mid-Atlantic ridge can be sighted above the water, and Scuba divers can traverse the Ridge, head down to the crystal clear waters at 120m/393.7ft, or the Silfra fissure little more than 10m/32.8ft deep at its deepest points.
The island of Flatey within Breiðafjörðuris a great destination to sight puffins, and an 11th Century church holds the paintings of Baltsar, a philosopher and artist. The Snæfellsjökull National Park has impressive rock formations created over the centuries and makes a wonderful place for coastal walks with dramatic beaches and warm, inviting cafes to distract you along the way. The southern coast ice caves are utterly mesmerising in the glass-like azure beauty, and for whale watching and learning about the darker whaling past, visitors should head to the far north to Húsavík.
