Reykjavik to Reykjavik
Take in the glow of pink midnight skies as you stand before fragile moss-shrouded arctic deserts punctuated by alabaster icefields, steaming geysers and smoldering volcanoes on a 10-day combination cruise and tour that integrates inland adventures with a coastal circumnavigation of Iceland. Venture inshore to Iceland’s untouched regions, including the Hraunfoss Lava Falls, the thundering Barnafoss Waterfall and glowing blue ice caverns beneath the Langjokull Glacier, the second largest glacier in Iceland. Bask in the steamy comfort of Blue Lagoon’s outdoor geothermal spa. Wander Reykjavik’s cultural museums and make your way along inviting side streets where former fishing homes offer basement bars, artisan boutiques and local coffee houses. Sample Kjötsúpa, a regional lamb stew rich in root vegetables. Spend an evening amid the colorful and quirky Seydisfjordur, a summer haven for artists and a jumping-off point for naturalists and scientists studying puffins, kittiwakes, arctic terns and innumerable wildlife in the nearby Skálanes Nature Reserve.
