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. Hear tales of the Norsemen who discovered and settled here, and see how they lived as you explore the marvelous Viking Museum in Njarðvík.
