On a circumnavigation of this endlessly fascinating island, sail into magnificent fjords, walk through volcanic landscapes of lava fields and hot springs, and witness magnificent waterfalls and ice-capped mountains. Encounter the fishermen of Ísafjörður and Grímsey and the artists and artisans of Seyðisfjörður. Marvel at the abundance of birdlife everywhere, but especially on the islands of Grímsey and Heimaey. Experience the almost unearthly geothermal displays at Lake Mývatn and at Krýsuvík.

“A little world within itself,” as Darwin described it, where life-altering encounters with animals—curious, or sublimely indifferent to our presence—happen like nowhere else on earth. Each island is uniquely fascinating and magical. You’ll discover the diverse habitats across this legendary volcanic archipelago aboard our well-equipped expedition ship, the 96-guest National Geographic Endeavour II. We’ll use our onboard fleet of nimble Zodiacs and kayaks for up-close explorations.
