Dinner

From Copenhagen, take a flight to the Icelandic capital of Reykjavik. Upon arrival, you will be transferred to your hotel for check-in. Thereafter, spend the rest of the day at leisure exploring the cosmopolitan city of Reykjavik.

Breakfast, Dinner

After breakfast, embark on the popular tourist sightseeing route also known as the Golden Circle. Starting at UNESCO World Heritage Site and Iceland’s first national park, Thingvellir National Park, see the magnificent two-tiered Gullfoss waterfall next, followed by the awe-inspiring The Great Geysir and Strokkur geysers and the highly active surrounding geothermal area.

Breakfast, Dinner

Today, head to Iceland’s South Coast where you will be enthralled by the picturesque Seljalandsfoss, arguably Iceland’s most famous waterfall. Be sure to take a short hike to the back of the waterfall for breathtaking views of the water as it plummets 65 metres into the plunge pool below. Next, visit Eyjafjallajokull Glacier, an impressive ice-capped volcano that gained notoriety for disrupting air traffic across Europe when it erupted in 2010. Then, stop by Skogar to see the spectacular Skogafoss waterfall followed by the charming village of Vik, Iceland’s southernmost village with black sand beaches and magnificent natural surroundings. Marvel at the dramatic Reynisdrangar, spiky basalt sea stacks jutting out from the ocean under the Reynisfjall mountains, which also serve as the visual trademark of Vik.

Breakfast
After breakfast, go on a guided city tour of Reykjavik including the futuristic glass-domed Perlan, historical Hofdi House, sports and recreation centre Laugardalur and Parliament House. Continue on to Hallgrimskirkja, one of the key landmarks in the city with its remarkably unique design inspired by Iceland’s characteristic lava flows cooling into basalt rock. In the afternoon, you may consider going on a whale watching tour at your own expense. The tour departs Reykjavik for Faxafloi bay, a thriving ecosystem teeming with marine life, whales and dolphins. Spend the rest of the day exploring the plethora of museums, landmarks and restaurants in the city at leisure.
Breakfast, Dinner

Start your day with a relaxing dip in the Blue Lagoon using your comfort package admission. Enjoy the therapeutic geothermal spa water, unwind in the saunas and steam baths or simply enjoy a “Mother Nature massage” as you stand under the Blue Lagoon waterfall. Then, transfer to your flight to Kangerlussuaq in Greenland. Home to Greenland’s diverse flora and fauna including reindeer and musk oxen, this town is also the perfect place to see the legendary Ice Cap that covers 82% of Greenland. Upon arrival, transfer to your hotel for a good night’s rest.

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

This morning, take in the major sights of Kangerlussuaq including the local museum. Then, begin your Greenland Ice Cap adventure with an Ice Cap Point 660 excursion on board a four-wheel drive across the mesmerizing landscape. On arrival at the Ice Cap, enjoy a delicious barbeque lunch as you admire the stunning surroundings and in particular, the spectacular Russell Glacier and its towering ice walls. Continue on to Point 660 to explore the icy wilderness and walk on the vast ice sheet that covers most of the country. If you are lucky, you might be able to spot reindeer, musk oxen and other species of birds and flowers.

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
After breakfast, board a flight to the “Iceberg Paradise” of Greenland, Ilulissat. Located on the shores of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Icefjord, Ilulissat has a resplendent collection of icebergs. Upon arrival, transfer to your hotel and go on a Guided Walk at the town’s Old Settlement where you will see buildings belonging to the first Danish settlement. Proceed to the abandoned settlement Sermermiut to see Inuit relics and artifacts from 4,000 years ago and learn about the Inuit way of life and customs before the Europeans came to Greenland. During your hike, you will pass by the “Witches Gorge” which provides a sweeping view of the stunning ice sculptures of Icefjord. Spend the rest of the day revelling in the beauty of the iceberg-laden ocean and this quaint city.
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
After breakfast, go on a guided city tour covering Ilulissat’s main sights and history, including the importance of dog sledding in Greenland and the history of Greenlandic sled dogs. This evening, embark on an exciting Boat Trip to the Icefjord in the Disko Bay, where you get to sail among the majestic and awe-inspiring icebergs. Each day, more than 40 million tons of ice flow into the icefjord with the some of the icebergs being 100 metres wide and long. These gigantic icebergs gather at the end of the fjord as they catch the rays of the midnight sun and change from bluish white to brilliant crimson hues, providing an ethereal experience like no other.
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Today you will have the opportunity to witness a spellbinding natural phenomenon known as glacial calving – when chunks of ice break off glaciers into the water, leaving a thunderous rumble and giant swathes of ice or icebergs behind. Hop on a day cruise to Eqi Glacier, an active calving glacier where you might be lucky enough to see this phenomenon up close. Along the way, you will pass through the expansive and idyllic landscapes of Bredebugt, the settlement of Oqaatsut, and even spot the occasional whale or seal at Pakitsoq fjord.

Breakfast, Meals Onboard
