The diverse ports of call are every bit as rewarding, from the stunning capital Reykjavík, to the warm-hearted, urban vibes of Eskifjörður. Akureyri, Iceland Sitting proudly at the head of Iceland’s longest fjord and atop Lonely Planet’s ‘Best places in Europe 2015’ list, Akureyri is an enchanting spot. Easy-going, with no ‘big city’ feel, it’s a rewarding adventure in itself, with art galleries and quality restaurants to discover. The wonders and wildlife of Northern Iceland are accessible too: tour to Godafoss, ‘Waterfall of the Gods’, or Lake Mývatn; encounter whales in their natural environment; or visit the famous Laufás turf houses for a superb photo opportunity. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Admire some of nature’s most magnificent creatures in their natural habitat on a whalewatching tour from Akureyri – a wildlife experience not to be missed. From only £1,299 per person Reykjavík, Iceland Overlooked by the iconic Hallgrímskirkja Bell Tower, Reykjavík is a stunning capital, which makes admiring the splendour from The Pearl observation platform a very worthwhile activity.

Highlights include the Blue Lagoon Spa, Thingvellir National Park, the Gullfoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls and the Geysir hot spring area. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Take the ‘Golden Circle’ tour, which encompasses the fantastic ‘Big Three’ geological attractions of Iceland – Gullfoss, Geysir and Thingvellir. Isafjörður, Iceland Set against a backdrop of steep mountains, Isafjörður is a delight to explore, from the well-preserved timber buildings of the Old Town to the Westfjords Heritage & Maritime Museum.
