le laperouse iceland cruise

Icelandic Mosaic

  • Overview
    Discover Iceland and the Arctic Circle and follow in the footsteps of the Vikings with this brand new cruise. For 8 days, Le Lapérouse will take you to extreme lands, a paradise for birdlife. Iceland is the starting point of this adventure and will captivate you with its breathtaking scenery. Glaciers, lava fields, geysers and steam baths – this is undoubtedly the place of all the superlatives. Reykjavik is the most northerly capital in the world, lying slightly above the 64th parallel. Houses with colourful roofs line its streets and this, coupled with the many ducks in its lake, produces a picture postcard setting. It boasts real cultural riches, particularly in contemporary art, notably with the Reykjavik Art Museum. During the cruise, Le Lapérouse will reach the Arctic Circle, as well as the small and remote island of Grimsey. Here it is the kingdom of birds such as guillemots and puffins. Its volcanic rock forms splendid basaltic columns in certain areas. You will also call at Seydisfjordur, one of the most picturesque ports in the country and the gateway to a 1250 hectare nature reserve that is home to a multitude of birds. To conclude you will discover Heimaey. The only inhabited island in the Westmann Islands, fishing is the main source of income in this exceptional site. You can admire its volcanoes and its almost-desert like landscapes. Your voyage will conclude in Reykjavik, leaving you with the memories of some unique moments.
