Iceland Circumnavigation July 9-19, 2018 picture Explore a mystical land shaped by fire and ice on this excursion to the ancient Viking stronghold of Iceland. Voyaging aboard the Ocean Endeavour, you’ll see Iceland at its best and most diverse. Marvel at the geological wonders of this island at the edge of the Arctic Circle, exploring its unforgettable culture, history, and people—from small fishing communities, to the ancient and modern capital, Reykjavík.

First settled in 874 AD, Iceland today is the most sparsely populated country in Europe—yet it may also be the most dramatic. Volcanically and geologically active, Iceland is famed for its awe-inspiring lava fields, mountains, glaciers, and glacial rivers. Natural wonders and a stirring history await on Iceland’s rugged shores. Join us as we set sail in the wake of the sagas of old.

Reykjavik, or “steamy bay” is a cosmopolitan capital city and as much a part of the Icelandic experience as volcanoes, glaciers, and the midnight sun. Entirely powered by geothermal energy harnessed from the Earth, the city boast crisp, clean, and pollution free air, as well as thermally heated streets and sidewalks. It is among the cleanest, greenest, and safest cities in the world, and is believed to be the location of the first permanent settlement in Iceland, established in AD 874. The Culture House, which opened in 1909, was originally built to house the National Library and National Archives of Iceland; in 2000, it was remodeled to promote Icelandic national heritage, including treasures like the Poetic Edda, and the Norse Sagas in their original manuscripts. Here, we embark the Ocean Endeavour. We depart Reykjavik in the evening.
