Reykjavik, Vigur Island, Húsavík, Lake Myvatn, Vestmannaeyjar
Aboard Le Bellot

Discover the stunning beauty and distinct culture of Iceland—one of the world’s most enchanting destinations—on this specially designed seven-night circumnavigation cruise of this extraordinary Nordic island nation. Cruise aboard the exclusively chartered, Five-Star small ship MV Le Bellot, featuring only 92 Suites and Staterooms. Look for orca, humpback whales and rare migratory birds, see landscapes of ancient Viking ruins and glittering glaciers atop simmering volcanoes, and touch ice fragments calved from one of Europe’s largest glaciers. Cross the Arctic Circle on Grímsey Island and cruise along the coast of Surtsey, Earth’s youngest island and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Explore the majestic and rocky vista of a former lava lake and marvel at dramatic Goðafoss, the “Waterfall of the Gods.”
