Isafjordur offers facilities that disprove the small size of the town. With excellent outdoor facilities, such as hiking routes, golf area and ski slopes for all skill levels, Isafjordur keeps all its guests entertained.
Reykjavik is the highlight of an Iceland cruise. Its closeness to nature means it also has various outdoor activities. The city itself is remarkably friendly and clean, with a vibrant atmosphere making it a pleasure to explore.
A cruise of Iceland offers something for everyone with the chance to sail along Iceland’s striking coastline, hike to Mt Esja’s top, snorkeling where continental flakes meet, kayaking on Thingvellir lake and rock climbing in Hvalfjorour fjord.
But a cruise to Iceland is not just about natural beauty. Your Iceland voyage also gives the opportunity to explore Viking history, as well as nightclubs and bars. Seafood is always on the menu – make sure you try the Icelandic pylsur (hot dog) as you stop by one of the many street stalls. Most travellers expect to find generous stews, but, indeed, the Baltic cities are home to wonderful dishes and wide menus served with black rye bread. Fresh fish, meats and herbs in the summer sun – that’s what you can really expect.
Exploring, whale watching and eating will be high on the agenda and, though the temperatures are really cool, a cruise vacation to Iceland brings a warm welcome from the locals. If you choose to visit Iceland in the winter, you’ll experience cold winds and snows that make the cities and the cosy cafes more appealing. Choose to visit Iceland in the summer, to be rewarded with stunning open spaces and warm sun.
Baltic’s history is connected with trade, with the mighty Hanseatic League creating wonderful cities still existing today and trading their wares. Scandinavia and Iceland, by contrast, have more traditional history. Fishing plays a major role in Iceland’s development and there are wonderful sights to see in a cruise north.
The Baltic is home to refined concert halls and theaters, playing host to the best performers in the world. Some of the best museums in the world are also in the Baltic – the Hermitage in St Petersburg is a spectacular example.
