Iceland Circumnavigation Cruise
Day 1 Reykjavik
Use your leisure time in Reykjavik to discover the unique charm of the world’s northernmost capital. The SEAVENTURE docks in Old Reykjavik Harbour 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
Stykkisholmur 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.
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.
Day 4 Siglufjordur/Hrisey
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 Hrisey, the second largest island of Iceland. With only 153 inhabitants, the island is located in Eyjafjordur, about 22 miles (35 km) north of Akureyri.
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.
Day 6 Husavik
Husavik is 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 varieties of birds. Watching these graceful ocean giants in their Arctic habitat is an unforgettable experience.
Day 7 Seydisfjördur
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 sights of the Eastfjords.
Day 8 Djupivogur
The fishing village of Djupivogur is today’s starting point to explore Vatnajokull Glacier (optional).

Icebergs of all shapes and sizes are floating in the water - an unforgettable adventure.
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. We go ashore on Heimaey, the only inhabited island, where half-buried houses remain from a violent 1973 eruption.
