Iceland Explorer

9 Days - World Navigator

Navigation around Surtsey Island is a rare treat for explorers as it’s only open to researchers. As your Captain sails around the island, you may spot flocks of puffins along the shoreline or seals and orcas in nearby waters. In Heimaey, built around the remains of an excavated home buried by ash during Eldfell’s eruption, you’ll find the Eldheimar Museum with a tour that takes you through the home and describes the history of the eruption. The small town of Grundarfjörður, home to fewer than 1,000 inhabitants, is also home to Kirkjufell (Church Mountain). Together with the mountain, a three-pronged waterfall called Kirkjufellsfoss creates an exquisite scene straight out of fantasy. Venture into the northernmost inhabited island in Iceland when you land in Grímsey. Look for the stone sphere marking the edge of the Arctic Circle.
