Discover the stunning beauty of Iceland—one of the world’s most enchanting yet rarely visited destinations—on a seven–night cruise of this extraordinary Nordic island nation. Aboard the exclusively–chartered, five–star, ice–class Le Soléal, featuring only 110 staterooms, cruise into ports, bays and inlets inaccessible to larger vessels and watch as landscapes of ancient Viking ruins, glittering glaciers atop simmering volcanoes and pristine beauty unfold. Visit Grimsey Island on the Arctic Circle and cruise past Surtsey, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Expert naturalist guides provide insight on the unique nature and culture of Iceland. A pre–cruise extension to Reykjavik is also planned.
Complementary alcoholic & nonalcoholic beverages are included throughout the cruise!
