Icelandic Mosaic Cruise

On the 8- or 12-day Icelandic Mosaic cruise, discover the most beautiful landscapes while cruising the Icelandic fjords. The main 8-day itinerary explores the iconic west coast of Iceland, while a longer 12-day itinerary completes a full circumnavigation. On the edge of the Arctic, between vast glaciers, vertiginous fjords, volcanoes and boiling geysers, Iceland offers a kaleidoscope of wild and romantic landscapes.  

For this Iceland luxury cruise, embark and disembark in Reykjavik, the world’s northernmost capital city. With its houses with colorful roofs and its lake that is home to countless ducks, the city offers a picture-postcard setting. It also boasts numerous cultural treasures, particularly in the field of contemporary art, with the Reykjavik Art Museum.

Highlights of cruising the Icelandic fjords include a visit to the bay of Grundarfjordur, right near Kirkjufell. This stunning cone-shaped mountain possesses a unique charm and provides opportunities for beautiful photos. Experience Grímsey, a small, hard-to-reach island where, in certain places, the volcanic rock forms magnificent basalt columns. Birds such as guillemots and puffins reign supreme along this puffin cruise from Reykjavik. Discover Heimaey, the only inhabited island in the Westman archipelago. It is an exceptional place composed of volcanoes and almost-desert landscapes, where fishing is the main food source. Call at Akureyri, the capital of north Iceland, on the shores of the Eyafjörður fjord, very close to the Arctic Circle.

On the full circumnavigation, additionally visit Siglurfjörður, to the north of the Tröllaskagi peninsula, whose mountainous silhouettes are reminiscent of French alpine reliefs. Founded in the 10th century, this small port reputed for herring fishing is also known for the beauty of its fjord. Also experience the magic of Hornafjörður, in the Vatnajökull National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, be dazzled by the beauty of the landscapes around the Jökulsarlon glacial lake.

Passage on this Iceland luxury cruise is aboard one of three high-end Explorer vessels, each identical with a capacity of 184 guests: Le Bellot, Le Champlain or Le Dumont D’Urville. These small expedition vessels offer an inviting atmosphere with decor that reflects the seas in which they sail. Explore breathtaking fjords, historic small fishing towns and magical landscapes off the ship, then return on board Le Bellot, Le Champlain or Le Dumont D’Urville for 5-star hotel service and a plethora of activities such as performances, culinary tastings and enriching lectures.

This secret boreal hideaway is located at the foot of the Kirkjufell, on Snaefellsnes peninsula. Arriving by boat enables a closer view of the lava-stone rock standing like a sentinel at the entrance to the bay; Grundarfjörður lies sheltered behind this cone-shaped rock. A stone’s throw from the jetty, crystal clear waters, tundra and beaches give onto the cerulean waters of Breiðafjörður. Scattered with its emerald-colored lawns, this town, with its buildings that merge into the surrounding countryside, will most certainly be a favorite.

The town of Isafjörður, which nestles at the back of its fjord between imposing mountains, is a delightful little town that lives exclusively from fishing. The capital of the Western fjords, its old wooden houses bear witness to its past as a major fishing port.

A small drop of basalt in the North Atlantic Ocean, Surtsey is a volcanic island formed by a submarine eruption that lasted from 1963 to 1967, off the Westman Islands to the south of Iceland. The island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. To protect its virgin ecosystem against human presence, it is forbidden to land there. Only a few scientists have access to Surtsey to study the plant and animal colonization of the island. Mosses, fungi and lichens were followed by vascular plants. Around 300 invertebrate species and 90 bird species have gradually colonized it. While sailing around Surtsey, enjoy a unique panorama of this extraordinary island’s contours.

The land of Haimaey, seated off the southern coast of Iceland, is the largest of the Vestmann islands and is the only inhabited island in the archipelago.

Djupavik

Located in the Westfjords region, Djúpavík is a small Icelandic village that was home to one of the biggest herring processing factories in Europe in the early 20th century. Closed down in 1954 due to dwindling fish stocks along the coasts, the abandoned factory was eventually bought by a couple who transformed it to make use of the unusual acoustics. Indeed, inside the plant’s silos one can feel the vibrations of music during a unique experience. The waterfall overlooking the town adds an extra touch of magic to this out-of-the-way place.

Siglufjordur & Grimsey

Set on the banks of a magnificent fjord edged with summits with alpine silhouettes, Siglufjördur is a small fishing village in the north of the Tröllaskagi peninsular. The former “herring capital,” this small town flourished until the beginning of the 1960s when its population grew as a consequence. The Herring Era Museum, the country’s largest maritime museum, takes visitors back in time to discover, thanks to faithful reconstructions, people’s lives at the time: fishing boats, the salting station, and the dwellings and offices of the fishing captains.

Grimsey is the northernmost island of Iceland surging from the Arctic ocean, with the Arctic circle running through the island. Its contrasted contours are surprising. From Grímseyjarhreppur, the island’s only town located on the west coast, head due south to take in the beauty of the hillsides that are lushly carpeted with moss and grass.

According to the Landnámabók, a manuscript describing the discovery of Iceland by the Scandinavians in the 9th and 10th centuries, Húsavík is the site of the first Nordic settlement in Iceland. This small fishing port very close to the Arctic Circle is known for being the place where there is the highest chance of spotting whales. A museum is even dedicated to them. The small town is also the ideal departure point for discovering Ásbyrgi Canyon, a geological treasure that is the subject of Nordic legends. The horseshoe-shaped canyon is divided in two by a huge rock formation called Eyjan (island in Icelandic). Covered in trees, the canyon is said to have appeared when Sleipnir, the god Odin’s horse, set one of his eight hooves down on the ground.

The village, surrounded on all sides by mountains with snow-topped peaks, has around 700 inhabitants. This small fishing port with a very picturesque charm is not far from Skálanes, a nature reserve of more than 2,500 acres that is home to about 50 bird species.

From this fjord that is also home to the small town of Höfn, hope to discover the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. In this incredible landscape, the glaciers calve icebergs that are carried toward the ocean by the currents via a small channel and eventually beach themselves. Admire the beauty of these blue icebergs on the black volcanic beaches. On the very aptly named Diamond Beach, the striking contrast between the colors and the elements is breathtaking.

This day without a port of call will also be an opportunity to enjoy the conferences or shows proposed on board, to do some shopping in the boutique or to meet the photographers in their dedicated space. Lovers of the open sea can visit the ship’s upper deck to admire the spectacle of the waves and perhaps be lucky enough to observe marine species.
