Iceland Unveiled:
A Circumnavigation Cruise Tailored for Adventurous Women

How would you like to visit the entire country of Iceland? Picture this: a journey where the crisp Arctic air fills your lungs, panoramic vistas of untamed landscapes stretch out before your eyes, and the spirit of adventure beckons you to explore the unknown. This isn’t just any getaway; it’s an Iceland Circumnavigation Expedition Cruise set for the perfect time of year, designed exclusively for those who dream of combining the thrill of exploration with the fun of expedition cruising.

Before we even set sail on this epic voyage, we’ll be treating ourselves to a 3-night/4-day Reykjavik tour, diving deep into the heart of Iceland’s enchanting beauty. Together, we’ll marvel at the wonders of the Golden Circle, where geysers erupt skyward, waterfalls cascade with power, and the tectonic dance of the Earth’s crust is on full display. Then, as we journey along the South Shore, we’ll encounter black sand beaches, towering cliffs, and perhaps even the playful antics of local wildlife. It’s the perfect prelude to our expedition, ensuring we’re fully immersed in the magic of Iceland before embarking on our cruise.

But the real adventure begins as we board our expedition cruise, navigating the entire Icelandic coast in a way few ever do. With Zodiacs at our disposal, we’ll venture to the most breathtaking and secluded spots along Iceland’s rugged shoreline. Imagine gliding across mirror-like waters to discover hidden coves, getting up close to majestic glaciers, and setting foot on remote islands where the silence is only broken by the call of seabirds. This journey is designed for the bold and the curious, for those who seek not just to travel, but to embark on a journey of discovery and adventure. So, pack your spirit of adventure and join us on this unparalleled expedition cruise around Iceland. It’s not just a trip; it’s an experience that promises to leave us with memories and friendships that last a lifetime.
