Around Iceland (Windstar)

FROM $3999

Dramatic scenery and curious communities coalesce on this week-long circumnavigation of Iceland. Explore a country few people will ever visit, and go far beyond the tourist hotspots to remote fjords, raging waterfalls, and small fishing villages. Get to know the independent and creative Icelanders, and watch whales and seabirds play offshore. This is yachting at its most inventive.

ITINERARY

Day 1 REYKJAVIK, ICELAND

Treat your eyes to crayon-colored buildings, eccentric architecture, and crystalline waterfalls cascading over velvet green hills in the world’s most northernmost capital, as lively and spontaneous as the geothermal activity beneath its surface.

Day 2 HEIMAEY ISLAND, ICELAND

Today we witness a world still in transition. Circle Surtsey Island, which rose from the sea in the 1960s. Next up, Heimaey, where a volcanic eruption created a modern-day Pompeii in 1973.

Day 3 SEYDISFJORDUR, ICELAND

As bird watchers head to the remote beauty of Skalanes Nature Reserve, trekkers can make their way to spectacular Hengifoss Waterfall. Or simply stroll the quaint town of 700 with its colorful Norwegian kit-houses shipped in at the turn of the century.

Day 4 SEYDISFJORDUR, ICELAND

As bird watchers head to the remote beauty of Skalanes Nature Reserve, trekkers can make their way to spectacular Hengifoss Waterfall. Or simply stroll the quaint town of 700 with its colorful Norwegian kit-houses shipped in at the turn of the century.

Day 5 AKUREYRI, ICELAND

Akureyri nestles like a gem at the head of Iceland’s greatest fjord. Just a stone’s throw from the Arctic Circle, it offers some of Iceland’s warmest weather. The perfect place to ride an Icelandic horse or soak in the sky-blue Myvatn Nature Baths.

Day 6 ISAFJORDUR, ICELAND

A breathtaking journey up Isafjordurup Bay precedes our arrival in Isafjordur, surprisingly urbane for a village of 2,600. Old Town’s 19th century buildings take you back to the days of the tall ships, while the abandoned town of Hesteyri remains frozen in the 1940s.

Day 7 GRUNDARFJORDUR, ICELAND

Viking sagas come to life in the geography here, as does Jules Verne’s tale Journey to the Center of the Earth. You may also be inspired to set pen to paper, but don’t feel bad if words fail you. The views defy description.

Day 8 REYKJAVIK, ICELAND

Treat your eyes to crayon-colored buildings, eccentric architecture, and crystalline waterfalls cascading over velvet green hills in the world’s most northernmost capital, as lively and spontaneous as the geothermal activity beneath its surface.
