Wild Iceland Escape
Discover why Iceland is known as the “land of fire and ice” on the 6-day Wild Iceland Escape cruise. Explore Iceland’s pristine fjords, fascinating tundra and dramatic waterfalls, accompanied by a dedicated team of naturalists. Encounter evidence of volcanic activity while soaking in geothermal hot springs, hike over cooled lava fields and view Iceland’s newest isle, Surtsey.
Spend 6 days discovering the rich biodiversity of the remote Westfjords, spotting nesting puffins and gannets on the Látrabjarg cliffs and watching for humpback and minke whales in the surrounding waters. Designed to explore the remote fjords and volcanic isles along Iceland’s western coast, the Wild Iceland Escape voyage reveals stark landscapes formed by volcanic eruptions, still warmed by geothermal activity; towering cliffs teeming with nesting seabirds; and snow-capped plateaus that rise into the clouds.
Not only are Iceland’s landscapes fascinating to explore, but the legacy of Viking explorers and intrepid fishermen is prevalent at historic villages and visitor sites. Choose the option to extend your 6-day Wild Iceland Escape voyage with additional adventures ranging from pre- and post-cruise hiking excursions, glacier helicopter rides, special ice cave explorations and more.
