    Description

    Sailing from Dover on Boudicca


    Experience the landscapes of Iceland with an amazing mix of wildlife, scenery, geothermal lagoons, gushing geysers and mighty waterfalls. Exploring three sides of this astonishing country, as well as ports of call in Orkney and the Faroe Islands, awe-inspiring landscapes, amazing wildlife and spectacular landscapes, are plentiful.


    Departing from Dover the first stop is a visit to the Orkney Islands where its Neolithic ancestry is evident in the many ancient monuments, stone circles and tombs that are testament to its UNESCO World Heritage Site status.


    During the season of the midnight sun, enjoy evenings of memorable scenic cruising, sailing by the Eyjafjallajökull volcano, standing magnificently at 5,466ft, as well as the famous Elephant Rock. An overnight stop in Reykjavik, the world’s northernmost capital, allows time to explore and includes a visit to the Blue Lagoon. In Ísafjörður we include a visit to Iceland’s oldest botanical garden before continuing to Akureyri and Northern Iceland. In an area especially renowned for its diverse wildlife and spectacular landscapes we include a whale-watching cruise.


    On the return, stop at Tórshavn, capital of the Faroe Islands. Discovered over a thousand years ago by the Vikings, the islands soon became a major trading centre. Many of the ancient buildings are still standing and open to the public. The curious wooden turf-roofed houses dot the Old Town on the rocky peninsula.
