In many ways a cruise to Iceland means discovering somewhere quite unlike almost anywhere else. Iceland’s landscapes are harsh but striking, with many mountains, glaciers, glacial rivers, rocky volcanoes and spurting geysers. Visitors are drawn to Iceland for its strong folk and Norse traditions, its heritage of Icelandic poetry, mythology and medieval sagas as well as its hearty cuisine.
Travel to Iceland with MSC cruises and discover the towns of Hafnarfjördur, Isafjörður and Akureyri on Lýðveldið Ísland. Temperatures are not as cold as many visitors think, and summers are mild and warm, making it a perfect time for sightseeing.
All our Icelandic destinations are popular with adult cruise passengers and children; the folk museum at Akureyri and elf spotting in Hafnarfjördur are just two of the great family activities that we offer in our excursion packages. Nature lovers will be eager to explore the beauty of the surrounding areas at each port of call; from hiking and boat tours to rare bird watching and fishing, we can help you get to the heart of this intriguing country.
If you’re happy strolling around the typical coloured wooden villages and soaking up the atmosphere of Iceland’s picturesque harbours you may like to shop for unique holiday souvenirs such as quality knitwear, pewter figurines of elves and trolls as well as Viking jewellery.
