Cruising to Iceland

  • Cruising to Iceland
Jun 9 2017

Increasing number of tourists in Iceland arrive on a ship or a cruise.  One of the largest ships sailing to Iceland is MSC Prezi¬osa.  The enormous ship has scheduled three tours to Iceland this summer, and it is hard to miss when in the harbor in the small city of Reykjavík.   Almost towering above all buildings in the city and bringing thousands of tourists for a few days stay in the city.  Sailing by the shore of Iceland is a fascinating way to visit and gives a rare view of the country from the Atlantic Ocean.

A stay in Reykjavík is always an interesting option

Passengers on a cruise stopping in Reykjavík usually have a few days to visit some of the fascinating natural wonders Iceland has to offer.  It is not unusual to visit the Reykjanes Peninsula, the Golden Circle, and the South Shore when staying in Reykjavik.  And there are also many options for those who want to stay in Reykjavík.  Walking from the harbor to downtown by the shore from the harbor and view some of the artwork on the sculpture shore walks.  A walk to Perlan for a view over the city is also an interesting option.

Northern Lights tour in Reykjavik

Iceland is one of the best places on the planet to see the Northern Lights.  This tour will take you to see this spectacular phenomenon near Reykjavík. We bring you away from the city lights to a place where the likelihood of a spotting Aurora Borealis increases even further. The destination varies, of course, depending on cloud cover, clear skies, aurora strength and likelihood of a sighting.  Visitors should be aware that although the tour endeavors to show the northern lights to as many of our guests as possible, seeing them is not guaranteed.  In winter weather always plays a large part in Iceland.

Golden Circle tour with Secret Lagoon

Step away from the crowd, the rush, and speed and enjoy the top sights and attractions in the south-western part of Iceland, without all the traffic. Take a convenient bus tour in a smaller bus and with a smaller group (max 16) at a time when fewer visitors are around. Why chase the crowds when you can enjoy the wonders of Iceland in a more friendly setting?  This peaceful excursion takes place in the afternoon and lasts into the evening and allows plenty of time to explore, view and photograph all the spectacular wonders.  And remember that evening in Iceland is bright during spring, summer and into the autumn. 

Þórsmörk tour

Þórsmörk is one of the most spectacular places in Iceland.  It is one of the most accessible areas in the Highland, a deep valley, and oasis cornered with glaciers on three sides.  It is truly a place of ice and fire as one of the glaciers; Eyjafjallajökull has recently erupted with glowing lava flowing into two parts of Þórsmörk.
