Our Golden Circle optional excursion will start at the Thingvellir National Park, a place of tremendous interest as a primary site of both Iceland’s geological and historical heritage. The tour continues to Gulfoss, Iceland's most beautiful waterfall and then to the Geysir geothermal area with its multitude of hot springs, where the most active one, Strokkur, spouts every few minutes. We stop at the Hveragerdi village, where geothermal water has been used to build up an extensive greenhouse industry and then at the Hellisheiði Geothermal Power Plant showcasing Iceland's ability to supply green power. Our tour ends as we pass through Reykjavik’s city center before arriving at the pier. Overnight at sea.
Day 3: GRUNDAFJORDUR
This morning we arrive in Grundafjordur, a quintessential Icelandic town, for our optional excursion of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. This small fishing village lies next to striking Mt. Kirkjufell, or “Church Mountain”, one of the most photographed mountains in Iceland. From there we head to Olafsvik, passing the splendid Baejarfoss waterfall and we continue to the southern side of the peninsula to reach the villages of Arnarstapi and Hellnar before making our way to Snaefellsjokull National Park, one of the county’s three national parks, established in 2001 in an effort to preserve the region’s unique ecosystem and historical artifacts. After our visit to the park, we drive back to the ship for a relaxing afternoon and evening sailing to Patreksfjordur. Overnight at sea.

Morning arrival at Patreksfjordur. The optional Westfjords adventure excursion starts from our port and reaches the Latrabjarg cliffs, with the largest seabird colony in the northern Atlantic, famous for its puffins colony. Your next stop is at Raudasandur or “Red Sand” beach, distinct itself from most of Iceland’s beaches, as it is golden and pink in color. We will ride on a tractor carriage with our expert guide and local farmer along the beach to the seal colony, where you can see the seals up close. Late afternoon, we ruise around the Harnafjordur and anchor in front of the majestic Dynjandi Waterfall. After drinks to celebrate this wonder of nature, we sail to Isafjordur. Overnight at sea.
