Itinerary

Description

Geysers and glaciers, lava flows and volcanic craters, bubbling mud pools, stunning waterfalls and geothermal hot springs, Iceland has one of the world’s most dynamic landscapes. You’ll step ashore in four fascinating ports of call as you circumnavigate the spectacular ‘Land of Fire and Ice’. Cobh in beautiful County Cork and the stunning Faroe Islands are stepping-stones on this exciting voyage.

Cruise

Day 1 – Home pickup & embarkation in Bristol

A uniformed chauffeur will collect you from home for your comfortable journey in a top specification car so you can begin your holiday in style. On arrival at Bristol Cruise Terminal, we board the Magellan and begin our journey, taking time to relax in our cabins or on deck and enjoying the use of the ship’s range of leisure facilities.      

Days 2 & 3 – At Sea

Day 4 – Kollafjørður, Faroe Islands

Today we visit Kollafjørður, a small fishing port on the Faroe island of Streymoy. Initially there were just a few dwellings adjoining the village church, which dating from 1837 is a typical black-tarred wooden building with white painted windows and a turf roof. Today, although it is home to less than a thousand people, the village stretches over four miles along the northern shore of the Kollafjørður Fjord.

Day 5 – Seyðisfjörður, Iceland

We arrive in Seyðisfjörður today, which boasts a rich history and a flourishing art scene alongside picturesque scenery and waterfalls. With multicoloured wooden houses situated beside snow-capped mountains this truly is a beautiful place to visit. We spend half a day here today to explore this unique town.

Day 6 – Akureyri, Iceland

Today we visit Akureyri – lying at the head of the 60-kilometre long Eyjafjördur, which is the longest fjord in Iceland. The capital of the north, which was founded as a trading post, is today an attractive town with colourful houses and well-kept gardens. It is also home to both the northernmost botanical garden and northernmost golf course in the world. Optional excursions highlight Iceland’s extraordinary landscapes including surreal rock formations, the lunar-like pseudo-craters at Skutastadir and the stunning, crescent-shaped Godafoss Waterfall. Laufas Folk Museum, or Myvatn Nature Baths, Iceland’s newest spa, are relaxing alternatives.


Day 7 – Ísafjörður, Iceland

Situated just below the Arctic Circle, Ísafjörður is the largest town in the Westfjords region of Iceland and is our port of call today. It sits on a gravel spit that stands out into the Skutulsfjördur flanked on three sides by towering mountains. There are only three roads leading out of the town and all are through tunnels. The Maritime Museum traces the life and history of the settlement where fishing has been, and remains, the area’s main source of income. The Westfjords region is a nature lover’s paradise and a popular excursion visits the magical island of Vigur, which is home to a large eider duck colony and vast bird population.

Days 8 & 9 – Reykjavík, Iceland

We arrive in the Icelandic capital, Reykjavík, which has a quirky character of its own. Although Reykjavík is one of the world’s smallest capital cities, it is home to almost half of Iceland’s population. It is a part old Norse, part modern city. Mosaics, murals and sculptures are found throughout the oldest part of the town where brightly coloured houses with tin roofs are watched over by the towering Hallgrimskirkja Church. The classic ‘Golden Circle’ featuring vast lava fields, bubbling mud pools, crashing waterfalls and spouting geysers, is a popular optional excursion along with the chance to bathe in the famous geothermal Blue Lagoon.

Days 10 & 11 – At Sea

Day 12 – Cobh, Ireland

After a couple of days at leisure on the ship, we arrive in Cobh. Lying at the mouth of the River Lee, Cobh has one of the best natural harbours in the world. Known as Queenstown until 1922, it was the departure point for thousands of Irish emigrants to America and the last port of call of the Titanic. The ‘Queenstown Story’ is a wonderful exhibition telling of this rich maritime history. From Cobh’s waterfront, streets lined with brightly coloured houses climb the steep slope of a hill, which is crowned with the imposing St Coleman’s Cathedral. A charming little town, Cobh is a gateway to the city of Cork and excursions to Ireland’s legendary Blarney Castle.

Day 13 – Disembarkation in Bristol

We arrive back in Bristol where we disembark and are met by our chauffeur for the journey home – a luxurious and stress-free way to end your holiday.
