Add to this the splendour of Reykjavik, the most northerly capital in Europe, and you have all the ingredients for a truly spectacular break. 

There really is no better way to discover the magic of Iceland and Greenland than by cruise. The crystal clear waters that lie off of these islands are some of the richest marine habitats in the world and with the opportunity to spot whales from the comfort of your cabin - sailing will certainly be half the adventure. A multitude of stop-off ports are available, and with many of the major cruise operators offering Iceland & Greenland cruise itineraries, you really can have your pick of dates and destinations.

Cruise Lines

Sail far beyond the Arctic Circle with Royal Caribbean cruises on a ship that has been carefully designed to ensure that there is never a dull moment from dawn until dusk. Or enjoy exploring this magical corner of the earth in the height of luxury aboard one of Princess Cruises’ elegant vessels.

Cruise Ships and Accommodation

Enjoy the latest and greatest in cruise travel aboard the newest addition to Celebrity Cruises’ fleet, the Celebrity Infinity. With spa-inspired staterooms designed to provide complete relaxation, and an onboard Persian Garden, the Infinity’s tranquil ambience will allow you to relax from the moment you step onboard. P&O’s Aurora is a great family-friendly option, with a vast selection of onboard activities, including an open-air cinema, a theatre playing West End-style shows, and a kids’ club to keep the little ones occupied on long days spent at sea.

Destinations and Itineraries

Set sail from Southampton on board the Aurora for a 14-night voyage of discovery, calling at Stavanger, Flaam, Alesund, arriving at the ‘Midnight Sun’ capital of Reykjavik and going on to explore Isafjordur before returning home via the Faroe Islands. You will discover Reykjavik to be among the most cosmopolitan cultural capitals of Europe. With a dazzling array of restaurants and lively nightlife, it is now a popular destination in its own right. 
Fred Olsen’s exciting 14-day ‘Discover Iceland & Greenland’ cruise departs from the port city of Liverpool, with the Boudicca sailing straight for Reykjavik, where an overnight stay allows passengers to make the most of the capital’s nightlife opportunities, before travelling to Greenland for the rest of the trip. Port stops include Qaqortoq, Narsarsuaq and Nanortalik. Enjoy the colonial feel of Qaqortoq’s harbour - its origins date back to the late eighteenth century when it served as a hub for Norwegian traders. Ensure you don’t miss the ancient fountain, of which the town is very proud. Admire the carvings of whales spurting water out of their blowholes, and the names of all of the town’s burghers in brass letters around its base. 

Iceland & Greenland cruises also offer some great land excursions. Hike the shores of Greenland’s great lakes and explore the icy world of Reykjavik’s glaciers aboard a hardy snow truck. Enjoy the ultimate in relaxation as you bathe in the mineral waters of the Blue Lagoon, where the geothermal properties of the surrounding volcanic terrain heat the water to a balmy 37°C. History buffs should be sure to head for the small town of Njarõvik, where there is a seaworthy replica of an ancient Viking vessel.
