Iceland Landscape 1

Overview

Viking stronghold. Land of fire and ice. Culture, wildlife, and wonders. A modern nation on an ancient island. Iceland by ocean awaits.

Circling the island on the Ocean Endeavour, witness Earth in action: active volcanoes, emerging islands, lava fields, geysers, and glaciers.

The landscape is otherworldly. Superb photography, birding, and hiking are a quick Zodiac ride away. Whales ply the North Atlantic waters. Join us as we sail those same waters—around Iceland, by ship!

  • Sail north of the Arctic Circle

    Iceland is one of the world’s eight Arctic nations—but just barely! The island of Grímsey is the reason: the Arctic Circle (66 degrees 33 minutes north) runs through it! At forty kilometres off the coast of the mainland, Grímsey is the only part of Iceland to earn the title “Arctic” on the basis of latitude.

    Visit now: the Arctic Circle is moving north, and by mid-century Grímsey will be south of it!

    Grimsey People In Zodiac
  • The world’s newest island

    In 1963, a cook aboard a freighter saw what he thought was a ship in trouble: smoke pouring onto the horizon with ocean all around. But on approach, it became clear that this was not a shipwreck, but a volcanic eruption forming a new island: Surtsey.

    Today, Surtsey is a conservation area uninhabited by people—but has become home to many plants, leading to a much greater awareness of the way island life develops! Sail by this unique landform: one of the world’s newest islands.
