ICELAND & THE FAROE ISLANDS EXPLORER

Guaranteed departures from Reykjavik every Friday in June, July and August 2016. 

Explore Iceland's Golden Circle of geothermal sights combined with a trip to an emerging destination with plenty to offer: The Faroe Islands! 

Reykjavik – the capital of Iceland 

A great blend of past and present. There will be ample opportunity to explore life in Reykjavik and sample its many bars and restaurants. 

Reykjavik is the ideal base for excursions to the most famous highlights of South Iceland: 

- The Blue Lagoon. - The majestic waterfall Gullfoss and the Geysir area with erupting hot springs. - The National Park of Thingvellir; a historic site through centuries and a masterpiece of nature with a scenic lake and rifts which mark where the continental plates of Europe and America meet. 

The Faroe Islands – a firm favourite with National Geographic Traveler Magazine and NY Times 

This gem of a destination has been listed as a ‘Best Trip 2015’ destination by both magazines and it is not hard to see why: Midway between Norway and Iceland the Faroe Islands rise out of the Atlantic Ocean like a hardy little flower. The islands offer thrilling experiences and a rugged environment: Steep cliffs rising from the open sea, narrow straits between the islands, small villages and a rich bird life. There may only be 50000 inhabitants, but the Faroese are a proud people whose culture and language can be traced back to the Viking age.
