Cruises to Iceland

On a cruise to Iceland, experience the island’s magnificent natural wonders. Tumbling waterfalls, otherworldly lava fields, vast glaciers, and plunging fjords are breathtaking sights just waiting to be explored.

Dip into the mineral-rich waters of the Blue Lagoon. Discover Viking history at the National Museum of Iceland, or snap a photo in front of the Sun Voyager, a modern sculpture inspired by a Viking ship. In Akureyri, sports and alpine trails at Hlíðarfjall are huge draws for travelers. See the “Waterfall of the Gods,” Godafoss, or take a relaxing mud bath at Lake Myvatn. On one of our Europe cruises that visit Iceland, you’ll discover that there really is nowhere on Earth that compares.

Iceland Cruise Highlights

Natural Hot Springs

Enjoy the healing properties of Iceland’s famous hot springs. There are springs of all sizes, from Kvika Footbath, a tiny pool near the Grótta Lighthouse perfect for dipping your feet in, to the Blue Lagoon, Iceland’s most famous geothermal pool. Here, restorative, mineral-filled waters, billowing steam, and therapeutic mud transport you to what feels like another world entirely.

Beautiful Fjords

Iceland is renowned for its breathtaking fjords, carved over the millennia by glaciers. In summer, ribbon-like waterfalls tumble over the rocks, and the hills are ablaze with the color of purple lupines. Hvalfjörður is a popular fjord just a short drive from Reykjavik, opening out to black-sand beaches and hikes with sweeping views. Explore the uninhabited islands along Borgarfjordur, or visit Siglufjordur, a colorful fishing village nestled alongside its namesake fjord.

Viking History

Head to the National Museum of Iceland in Reykjavik and discover the secrets of Viking settlement on the island. Admire the Sun Voyager, a futuristic sculpture that celebrates the significance of the Vikings in Icelandic history. At the Akureyri Museum, you can explore local history from the Viking era all the way up to modern settlement. Before taking in the geological wonders of Lake Myvatn, head to the visitor center to understand the storied lore and myths surrounding Akureyri.
