Reykjavik

De spastad

Reykjavík wordt weerspiegeld in de wateren van de bijbehorende baai, zoals u kunt zien wanneer uw cruiseschip voor anker gaat in de haven. De kades langs de kust bieden een verscheidenheid aan winkels, live muziekclubs en cafés.
Wandel via Frakkastigur naar Lækjartorg om de Sólfar te bewonderen, ook bekend als de Zonreiziger. Het is een groot modern stalenbeeldhouwwerk van Jón Gunnar Árnason, in de vorm van een vikingschip, met de boeg naar het noorden gericht.

Ga terug in de tijd zodra u het historische centrum binnenstapt in de districten Aðalstræti en Suðurgata, waar u nog steeds de overblijfselen van primitieve IJslandse huizen kunt zien. Ook de kerk van Hallgrímur, waarschijnlijk het belangrijkste architecturale monument in Reykjavik, is een bezoek waard. Zoals u zult ontdekken tijdens uw MSC cruise in Noord-Europa heeft geothermale energie een positieve invloed op het leven van het hele land en er is daarom een overvloed van spa's.

Mis een excursie naar het Þingvellir nationaal park in de zuidwestelijke regio van het eiland niet, dat in 2004 benoemd werd als een werelderfgoed van UNESCO. Aan de noordelijke oevers van het Þingvallavatn vormt het grootste IJslandse meer, de Öxarárivier, de Öxaráfosswaterval in de nabijheid van Almannagjá, dat het grootste ravijn van het land is.

Als u van watervallen houdt, mis dan niet een bezoek aan Gullfoss in het zuidoosten van het eiland. De rivier de Hvítá valt hier 11 en vervolgens 21 meter naar beneden en vormt zo de koningin der IJslandse watervallen. Het stroomt vervolgens verder langs een smalle kloof in het plateau. In dit gebied vinden we ook de Strokkur, de enige geiser die regelmatig om de 4-8 minuten uitbarst. U kunt vervolgens naar Geysir gaan in de Haukadalurvallei, de oudste bekende geiser van waar de naam is afgeleid.

De uitbarstingen schieten kokend water tot wel 60 meter de lucht in, maar bereiken vaak hoogtes van 100 meter. Het is dan ook de hoogste van de actieve geisers.

    This exhilarating 4x4 glacial adventure takes you to the second largest ice cap in Iceland for an adventure of a different kind. Board a 4x4 and drive to the waterfalls of Hraunfossar and Barnafoss providing the ideal place for photo opportunities. Your first destination will be Húsafell, a green oasis near the edge of the glacier, and the place where you will stop for lunch. Next, your amazing adventure begins. After lunch, board your Super Truck and continue up on to the glacier, driving on the white wilderness until reaching the ice cave. Langjökull Glacier is the second largest ice cap in Iceland and your expert driver will take you across the wilderness of ice and snow. You will visit a man-made ice cave: a unique way to move close to the heart of the glacier. Enjoy a walk through halls of blue ice and experience the colours and density of the glacier. After this amazing experience, continue through the dramatic Kaldidalur, the Cold Valley, one of the highest mountain roads in Iceland and open only for limited time during the year. Your final destination will be Þingvellir National Park - a UNESCO World Heritage Site that ranks at the top of Iceland's attractions. Located in a rift valley with incredible views of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, this area is not only of tremendous geological interest but is also the place the legislative parliament, the Alþing, was founded in the year 930. After some time spent at the viewpoint, you will board your 4X4 and drive back to the port and your cruise ship. Please note: this tour is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties, using a wheelchair or who are claustrophobic; it is subject to road conditions and may be cancelled with short notice. Time spent and distance travelled on the glacier depends on weather and snow conditions; the itinerary may change if necessary. Guiding will be in English.

    Join this tour and prepare to spend time enjoying some of the natural splendours that have helped make Iceland famous. We will leave the port for a bus transfer to the lovely Thingvellir National Park - a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated 30 miles from Reykjavik. This park is a must during any visit to Iceland; we will experience one of the most outstanding sceneries in the Country, a vast lava plain of green moss and wild flowers. Icelanders regard this site as a sacred place and the world's oldest legislative parliament was founded here. Next stop will be the huge Gullfoss or golden Waterfall; this twin cascade is one of the most powerful in Europe and there are some amazing views from here. Our third visit takes in the Iceland Geysers, which, together with Thingvellir Park and Gullfoss, form the Golden Circle tourist route. Here we will see nature in all her glory as we marvel at the hissing hot springs and other geothermal phenomena and it is in this surreal environment that we will have lunch. Return to the port. Please note: limited number of guides in languages other than English. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be in English only. This tour includes walking on uneven ground but most of the sights can be seen from the coach. Only water is included in the lunch; additional drinks to be paid for on site.

    This comprehensive sightseeing excursion takes in all the highlights of Reykjavik, the northernmost capital in the world. We will leave the pier and head to the conservation area of Heidmork, crossing the Ellidaar River, which is one of the cleanest metropolitan salmon rivers in the world.

    Board a coach and leave the port of Reykjavik for a scenic 45-minute drive that will first take you over imposing lava fields dotted with steaming hot springs to reach the Eldhestar - Volcano Horses - Farm and Riding Centre, after which an informative horse show will introduce you to the history and characteristics of these unique, hardy Icelandic horses. You will then have time to enjoy some light refreshment at the farm, including a taste of the local hot-spring bread - a traditional delicacy that is baked underground using heat from the nearby thermal springs. Next, you will travel to Hveragerði, a town known for its pronounced geothermal activity and variety of bubbling hot springs. The village is also famous for its earthquakes, the most recent of which occurred in 2008 and is still firmly imprinted in the minds of the locals. You will visit the tourist information centre to see an exhibition portraying how this moving experience affected the local residents, the town's buildings and its natural environment. A visit will also be paid to the village's art gallery before you begin your return journey over the mountain pass and through the centre of Reykjavik.

    Board a coach and leave the port of Reykjavik for a scenic 45-minute drive that will first take you over imposing lava fields dotted with steaming hot springs to reach the Eldhestar - Volcano Horses - Farm and Riding Centre, after which an informative horse show will introduce you to the history and characteristics of these unique, hardy Icelandic horses. You will then have time to enjoy some light refreshment at the farm, including a taste of the local hot-spring bread - a traditional delicacy that is baked underground using heat from the nearby thermal springs. Next, you will travel to Hveragerði, a town known for its pronounced geothermal activity and variety of bubbling hot springs. The village is also famous for its earthquakes, the most recent of which occurred in 2008 and is still firmly imprinted in the minds of the locals. You will visit the tourist information centre to see an exhibition portraying how this moving experience affected the local residents, the town's buildings and its natural environment. A visit will also be paid to the village's art gallery before you begin your return journey over the mountain pass and through the centre of Reykjavik.

    Iceland's capital city, Reykjavik, is a fascinating mix of the tradition and technical modernity. Visitors are always struck by the juxtaposition of the clean-lined, boldly coloured modern constructions and the quaint historic buildings that characterise the old city centre. Our tour starts with a drive to the Arbaer Open Air Folk Museum where historic homes from Reykjavik and other parts of Iceland have been recreated in a display of Icelandic life. Enjoy a pleasant walk around the museum and see the traditional northern Icelandic turf church and turf farm buildings. Our next stop will be the Pearl and we can enjoy a panoramic city view from the vantage point of its hot-water storage tanks! The Pearl is of particular architectural interest as it features a dome built of reflective glass panels set on a hollow steel frame. After viewing the city from above, we can continue exploring on the ground as we take a short walk through the historic district, admiring Reykjavik's colourful wooden houses and pretty narrow streets. Return to the port. Please note: limited number of guides in languages other than English. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be in English only. Although most of the sites are wheelchair-friendly, there may be some restrictions on visiting some old houses at the Arbaer Open Air Museum.

    Adventurous passengers will love this special excursion that lets you enjoy the scenery of Iceland aboard a special super truck jeep. Built to weather exceptionally tough conditions, we will ride these jeeps out to rocky landscapes carved by the forces of nature and time. The excursion begins with a transfer to Nesjavellir Power Plant, which formally opened in 1990 to create the biggest high-temperature field in Iceland and which is now one of the main sources of heat for homes in Reykjavik. From here, you will take the gravel road along the lake Thingvallavatn, driving across the lush farmlands of the south through a constantly changing landscape. We will arrive at the birch forests of Trastarlundur where we will stop for a short break before driving on a special jeep track known as The Thousand Waters; you will pass a series of rivers, mud banks and streams. Our last stop will be on a hill to take in a final view of the unique Icelandic scenery. Please note: the driver will give information only in English.

    Treat yourself to an amazing outing to the rugged volcanic landscape of the Reykjanes peninsula, which is located a short distance to the south of Reykjavik. Safely ensconced in a super-truck, you will first head for Stóra Eldborg, or big fire city, a perfectly formed lava ring and crater dating back approx. 3,000 years. An invigorating trek up the steep flanks will reward you with breathtaking views of the lunar-like terrain at the top. A short drive and subsequent walk over uneven mossy ground will then see you go caving in a so-called lava tube, whose nearly undetectable entrance can only be located using GPS. Once you have been issued with a safety helmet and a high-beam torch, your guide will take you into the mysterious depths of the Icelandic underworld. Next up is a visit to the hot springs and fumaroles found at the thermal field of Krysuvík, situated in a fissure zone that crosses Iceland. Lobster soup with freshly baked bread then await you for lunch in the nearby fishing village of Grindavík, after which you will re-board the super-truck and drive past the famous Blue Lagoon thermal spa before returning to the port. Please note: limited number of guides in languages other than English. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be in English only. This tour is suitable only for guests with a high fitness level. It is unsuitable for pregnant women or for guests who suffer from claustrophobia. Due to the substantial walking, hiking and caving the tour entails, it is classified a grade 4 hike. This tour is available on the first and on the second day but you can book it only during your cruise. Guests must be 10 years old to take part.

    Prepare to explore and be amazed by Iceland's untamed volcanic landscape on this tour of hot springs, fumaroles and craters, which begins with a scenic drive from the capital to the Reykjanes Peninsula, an area of extreme geothermal activity. The powerful forces of nature are prominent on the peninsula, be it in the sheer rugged beauty of the North Atlantic coastline, the savage bleakness of the seemingly endless lunar-like landscape or in the hardiness of the region's flora and fauna. The tour also includes a visit to the bird cliffs near the Reykjanes lighthouse, after which you will continue on to an impressive row of volcanic craters, complete with hissing thermal springs that give off a pungent eggy odour. Finally, you will move on to the nearby high-temperature thermal field to round off the volcanic leg of the tour. After returning to the port, a stop will be made at one of the city's most famous landmarks, the remarkable Perlan building (The Pearl). Built in 1988, the building features a shiny cupola that sits atop a number of huge tanks containing natural hot water to heat Icelandic homes. The building also contains a man-made geyser that spouts a column of water through the inside of the building at regular intervals. As a final treat on the tour, you can enjoy wonderful views of the city's colourful rooftops from the 1st-floor viewing platform of the Perlan building. A scenic return drive to the port and your ship ends this tour of volcanic Iceland. Please note: limited number of guides in languages other than English.

      If whales are your thing, Iceland is the place to be since it counts as one of the best locations to spot these immense marine mammals within northern Europe.

This half-day tour involves boarding a boat and sailing through Iceland's waters in search of whales. While on board, you can choose to relax in the dining room with a bar, or stay on deck for a more direct look at Iceland's natural glory. Part two of the outing will take you on a 50-minute visit to the brand-new Icelandic Whale Exhibition. Apart from a presentation of all 23-whale species known to frequent Icelandic waters, there are also full-size models of the biggest species - including a huge blue whale - and numerous other life-size models and skeletons of other whales and dolphins. The visit provides an entertaining opportunity to find out all you ever wanted to know about whales - even their love life. The tour then wraps up with your return to the ship.

Part two of the outing will take you on a 50-minute visit to the brand-new Icelandic Whale Exhibition. Apart from a presentation of all 23-whale species known to frequent Icelandic waters, there are also full-size models of the biggest species - including a huge blue whale - and numerous other life-size models and skeletons of other whales and dolphins. The visit provides an entertaining opportunity to find out all you ever wanted to know about whales - even their love life. The tour then wraps up with your return to the ship. Please note: limited number of guides in languages other than English. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be in English only. You will meet your guide directly on the boat. This tour is not suitable for guests using a wheelchair. Wildlife sightings is likely, but not guaranteed. This tour is available on the first and on the second day but please select code KEF15 if you wish to take part in this tour on the first day of call and code KEF27 if you wish to take part in this tour on the second day of call.

    IJsland

    Een vakantie in IJsland staat gelijk aan het ontdekken van een nieuwe wereld. Zelfs als u een prima idee hebt van het land, zal dit eiland u met zekerheid verrassen.


    Niet veel mensen weten dat Reykjavík, de hoofdstad van IJsland, een intens artistiek en sociaal leven kent. En ook niet dat de natuur van IJsland zo weelderig is dankzij het feit dat het in de zomer enorm zacht is en dat het in de winter, wanneer de lucht wordt gesierd door de kleuren van het noorderlicht, niet zo koud is als u zou denken.

    IJsland biedt enorm veel zoals de kokende modderpoelen, de ongelooflijke geisers, de gletsjers, de watervallen en nog veel meer. Begin met vogelspotten bij het Mývatn-meer of ga op een excursie om de walvissen te zien. De zee van IJsland is een van de beste plekken ter wereld om deze enorme zoogdieren van dichtbij te kunnen zien.
    Als u van ijs houdt, kunt u een bezoek brengen aan Jökulsárlón, de grootste bevroren lagune van het land. Het is de plek waar de Breiðamerkurjökull-gletsjer samenkomt met de wateren van de Atlantische Oceaan. 


    Als u van plan was om te ontspannen is het interessant om te weten dat er 170 geothermale baden zijn in IJsland, zoals de sublieme en therapeutische Blue Lagoon, ongeveer 40 km verwijderd van Reykjavík. Het is een groot bad gevoed door een warmwaterbron die water stroomt bij een temperatuur van tussen de 37 en 39 °C en die rijk is aan mineralen en therapeutische eigenschappen bezit.
