Discover the ethereal “Land of Fire and Ice” — one of the world’s most enchanting and distinctive destinations — on this specially designed circumnavigation cruise of this stunning Nordic island nation. Cruise aboard the newest five‑star expedition ship, Le Bellot, launching in 2020, featuring only 92 suites and staterooms and the world’s first multisensory, underwater observation lounge. Look for orca, humpback whales, and rare migratory birds; see landscapes of ancient Viking ruins and crystalline 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, one of Earth’s youngest islands 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.” This tour includes round-trip air from Boston, Montreal, New York-JFK, Newark, Toronto, and Washington-Dulles; low-cost air add‑ons are available from select cities.
