Cruise Overview

Iceland Cruise | Voyage to Iceland—Windswept Isles of the North from Hamburg to Reykjavík

Join us as we sail from Hamburg to Iceland via Norway, the Shetland Islands and the Faroe Islands 

From beautiful fjords and soaring cliffs to lonely islands and dramatic landscapes 

Rugged coastlines and small fishing villages: sail from Hamburg to Reykjavík

A North Atlantic Island Odyssey 

Setting out from Hamburg, we’ll sail into the North Sea and head in the direction of Iceland. Our first stop is Norway’s sublime Lysefjord; from there we’ll head back out to sea and visit the highlights of the Orkneys, the Shetlands and the Faroes on our voyage north. These wild and dramatic islands are rugged and green, but they all offer very welcoming inhabitants and fascinating history. 

From One Great City to Another

The adventure begins in Hamburg, Germany’s bustling port city, and ends in stylish Reykjavík. As our journey progresses, we’ll be far from any cities, but we will get to experience the much smaller settlements that dot the North Atlantic islands along our route. And—of course—we'll see some fantastic natural sights and be on the lookout for wildlife. Once we arrive in Reykjavík, this voyage is ideal to combine with one of our Iceland expeditions, such as a circumnavigation.
