Iceland Circumnavigation July 5-14, 2019 picture Viking stronghold. Land of fire and ice. Ever-changing and eternal. Culture, wildlife, and wonders. A modern nation on an ancient island. Iceland by ocean awaits.
 
Europe meets North America in Iceland. At the edge of the Arctic Circle, Iceland is dominated by geology—and defined by the sea.
 
While circling the island on the Ocean Endeavour, we’ll witness the Earth in action: active volcanoes, emerging islands, lava fields, geysers, and glaciers.
 
Viking descendants live in fishing villages scattered around the coast. Local folk share songs and stories, handed down through generations.
 
The landscape is otherworldly. Superb photography, birding, and hiking are a quick Zodiac ride away. Whales ply the North Atlantic waters. Join us as we sail those same waters—around Iceland, by ship!

Iceland’s cosmopolitan capital, Reykjavík was established in 874 AD. Powered by geothermal energy, Reykjavík is widely considered one of the cleanest, greenest cities on Earth.

Despite centuries of relative isolation, today Reykjavík is a contemporary city with plenty to see and do. The National Culture House preserves treasures like the Poetic Edda, and the Norse Sagas in their original manuscripts. We depart Reykjavík in the evening aboard the Ocean Endeavour.

The Ocean Endeavour is the perfect vessel for expedition cruising.

The Ocean Endeavour boasts a 1B ice class, enabling her to freely explore throughout the Arctic summer. Launched in 1982, she has had numerous upgrades, most recently in 2016. At 137 metres in length, the Ocean Endeavour has plenty of interior and exterior space. Ample deck space offers comfortable lounge chairs, a swimming pool, two saunas, and even a hot tub! The spacious interior allows for varied workshops and presentations to occur simultaneously. The three lounges aboard the Ocean Endeavour are optimal locations for seminars, events, parties, and conversation. The Ocean Endeavour’s crew is experienced and friendly.
