Iceland is famous for its fjords, and this trip gives you plenty of close-ups of the spectacular valleys of water. Things kick off with a leisurely cruise, where you can sit back and admire the views. As you near the bay of Hesteyri, keep an eye out for the Arctic Terns which soar overhead. You’ll dock at the waterside village, and have a couple of hours to wander around the old factories and fancy summer houses. The place used to be a thriving fishing town, but its isolation and cold climate caused most of the residents to leave back in the Fifties. These days, it’s one of the most inaccessible places in the country, and remains pretty quiet year-round. Later, you’ll stop for lunch at an old Doctor’s residence. Tuck into Icelandic pancakes and traditional rye bread with smoked ham. Then it’s back through the fjords as you make your way to the port.
