Cruise Description

12 Night Cruise sailing roundtrip from Dundee aboard Magellan.

Cruise Overview:

Home to one of the world’s most dynamic landscapes, Iceland is the legendary ‘Land of Fire and Ice’! Vast ice caps, active volcanoes, spouting geysers, bubbling mud pools and geothermal hot springs are all part of the exciting nature you may experience as you circumnavigate this extraordinary island. Visits to the beautiful Orkney and Shetland Islands and the remote Faroes complete this very special cruise.

Enjoy life on board Magellan before reaching colourful Tórshavn where the core of the old town is made up of red wooden houses with turf-covered roofs. Discover the dramatic Faroe Islands scenery on an optional tour. Seydisfjordur is a fascinating introduction to the remarkable landscapes and remote parts of eastern Iceland. Delightful Akureryi is capital of the north and your gateway to spectacular nature including the majestic Godafoss waterfall, moon-like, pseudo-craters at Skutastadir and the mud pools, steam vents and boiling springs at Namaskard. Isafjördur is the largest settlement in Iceland’s west fjords peninsula. An optional boat trip to Vigur Island is a must for bird-lovers.

Hafnarfjõrdur is your gateway to Reykjavik and the start of the optional classic ‘Golden Circle’ tour featuring the raging Gullfoss waterfall, geothermal field of Geysir and Thingvellir National Park. Bathing in the Blue Lagoon is a relaxing alternative before sailing to Lerwick to discover the rich Norse heritage and traditional crafts of Shetland. A call in charming Kirkwall offers a chance to discover Neolithic Orkney and the famous Churchill Barriers. From Newcastle, your final call, perhaps opt to visit Durham Cathedral before heading to Dundee.

Highlights of this cruise:

Once the site of an annual Viking gathering, Tórshavn is today one of the smallest and most pleasant capital cities in the world. It sits on the southern tip of Streymoy, one of eighteen islands in the Faroese archipelago. Tinganes is the old part of the town where characteristic, red wooden buildings with turf-covered roofs cluster on a narrow peninsula. It juts into the natural harbour around which the modern town has been built. The Faroe Islands have a wild and dramatic landscape, which is a magnificent backdrop to optional excursions showing how islanders live on this remote and unspoiled archipelago.

Akureyri lies at the head of the 60-kilometre long Eyjafjördur, which is the longest fjord in Iceland. The capital of the north, which was founded as a trading post, is today an attractive town with colourful houses and well-kept gardens. It is also home to both the northernmost botanical garden and northernmost golf course in the world. Optional excursions highlight Iceland’s extraordinary landscapes including surreal rock formations, the lunar-like pseudo-craters at Skutastadir and the stunning, crescent-shaped Godafoss Waterfall. Laufas Folk Museum, or Myvatn Nature Baths, Iceland’s newest spa, are relaxing alternatives.

Situated just below the Arctic Circle, Isafjördur is the largest town in the Westfjords region of Iceland. It sits on a gravel spit that stands out into the Skutulsfjördur flanked on three sides by towering mountains. There are only three roads leading out of the town and all are through tunnels. The Maritime Museum traces the life and history of the settlement where fishing has been, and remains, the area’s main source of income. The Westfjords region is a nature lover’s paradise and a popular excursion visits the magical island of Vigur, which is home to a large eider duck colony and vast bird population.

Originally settled by the Norsemen in the 9th century, Lerwick was founded as an unofficial marketplace to service 17th century Dutch herring fleets. The core of the town is a maze of narrow, flagstone streets set behind 18th century sandstone buildings overlooking the busy harbour. Hay’s Dock, once the centre of Shetland’s fishing and boat building industries, is home to the marvellous Shetland Museum and Archives. On the southern tip of Mainland the extraordinary archaeological site of Jarlshof tells the story of some 4,000 years of human history on this remote archipelago with a wealth of wildlife.

The capital of the amazing Orkney archipelago, the Royal Burgh of Kirkwall sits almost exactly in the centre of Mainland, dividing the island into East and West. The magnificent St. Magnus Cathedral, a legacy of the town’s rich Viking heritage, dominates Kirkwall’s skyline. In its shadow, the town is a cluster of grey stone buildings lining narrow, flagstone streets. Excursions explore these beautiful islands whose history can be traced back some 6,000 years through Neolithic standing stones and the magnificent archaeological site of Skara Brae. Modern day Orkney is a hive of creative activity and its craft workshops are perfect for a special souvenir.
