At a Glance

Capture the spirit of Erik the Red’s voyage from Iceland to Greenland more than 10 centuries ago as you spend nine nights sailing round-trip from Reykjavik along the shores of Faxaflói Bay and the Snaefellsnes to Greenland’s expansive and icy landscape. Walk with locals in the footsteps of Vikings and heroes of Norse mythology. Bathe in geothermal waters in the land of geysers and volcanoes. Explore sheer cliffs and rugged coastlines by Zodiac in search of puffins and eagles, and learn from scholars and historians in historic settlements of the courageous seafaring people who first tamed the fjords and glaciers of these extreme northern lands.
