Fire, Ice and Trolls

Mythical Iceland is the land of ice and fire, classic sagas, and summers illuminated by the Midnight Sun. Iceland’s heritage is chronicled in the ancient sagas, and its folktales are rife with mysticism, elves and trolls. Icelanders keep their heritage alive to this day. For example, if locals want to build a new road, there’s one influential group that must be consulted first - the elves.  

Stunning Nature

Wild and geologically active Icelandic nature offers stunning landscapes and some of Europe's most awe-inspiring waterfalls. Erupting volcanoes and geysers dot the landscape. Experience a variety of islands, towns and settlements, spectacular views and interesting sites, accompanied by our knowledgeable expedition team.  

The Norwegian Fjords

We cross the Norwegian Sea to the west coast of Norway, where we will cruise the beautiful fjords of Lysefjorden and Geiranger and enjoy the charming city of Kristiansand, before our expedition cruise comes to an end in the northern German city of Hamburg.
