Overview
Enquire About Wild & Secret Iceland by Ponant

When Do You Want To Go?

Discover the most beautiful landscapes on the Icelandic west coast during an 8-day cruise with Ponant.

On the edge of the Arctic, between vast glaciers, vertiginous fjords, volcanoes and boiling geysers, Iceland offers a kaleidoscope of wild and romantic landscapes. You will board your ship in Reykjavik, the world’s northernmost capital city. With its colourful roofed houses and 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.

The first port of call on your cruise: the bay of Grundarfjordur, near Kirkjufell. This stunning cone-shaped mountain possesses a unique charm and this will be an opportunity to take some beautiful photos.

Your ship will then reach 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 here.

Finally, you will discover Heimaey. This is the only inhabited island in the Westman archipelago. It is an exceptional place composed of volcanoes and desert-like landscapes, where fishing is the main food source.
