Get to know the island of “fire and ice” in autumn on this special journey that gives the opportunity to witness Northern Lights and different species of whales. Look forward to a 3-day-cruise with shore excursions and interesting lectures.

Day 1  : Reykjavik arrival

After arrival at Keflavik Airport you have a transfer to the harbor of Reykjavik. The OCEAN DIAMOND docks in Old Reykjavik Harbor in the heart of the city, a five-minute stroll from the main squares, shopping and dining. The ship departs in the evening. Tonight you may already have a first opportunity to see the Northern Lights!

Day 2  : Stykkishólmur

In the morning the OCEAN DIAMOND reaches the small village of Stykkisholmur, the starting point for our explorations of the Snaefellsnes peninsula. Snaefellsnes is also known as “Iceland in miniature” since this region contains nearly all different kind of Icelandic scenery. In the evening the OCEAN DIAMOND leaves Stykkisholmur for the direction of the Westfjords. And again dark clear sky might offer great opportunities for the Northern Lights.

Day 3  : Ísafjörður

Today‘s destination is the idyllic town of Isafjordur, capital of the Westfjords region. This secluded peninsula is connected to the rest of Iceland by only a narrow strip of land. Even by Icelandic standards, the area can be described as unusually isolated. The landscape is characterized by mesas and dramatic fjords that cut deep into the landscape.

Day 4  : Húsavík

In the early morning hours we steam into Skjalfandi Bay and Husavik Husavik is often called the “Whale watching capital” of Iceland, the town’s offshore waters are home to 15 different whale species, as well as dolphins Watching these graceful ocean giants in their Arctic habitat is an unforgettable experience. An exciting trip with RIB boats (Rigid Inflatable Boat) to search for the gentle giants awaits you after disembarkation. Lunch onboard the OCEAN DIAMOND. In the afternoon you will fly back to Reykjavik followed by a transfer to your hotel in Reykjavik. Overnight in Reykjavik.

Day 5  : Reykjavik departure

Transfer to Keflavik Airport for your departure flight.
