A Great Northern Expedition
This expedition cruise to Iceland begins Hamburg before heading to the west coast of Norway and onwards towards Iceland.
Famed Natural Beauty
Arriving in Norway, we cruise the unmatched beauty of world-famous Lysefjorden and Geirangerfjord. This stretch of the Norwegian coast offers spectacular scenery with dramatic fjords and idyllic countryside.
Fire and Ice
Next, MS Fridtjof Nansen crosses the Norwegian Sea to the land of fire and ice: mythical Iceland. This is the home of classic sagas, long Arctic winters and summers lit by the Midnight Sun.
We will call on charming towns and settlements, see iconic natural attractions such as Goðafoss, Waterfall of the Gods, go birdwatching, step across the Arctic Circle and enjoy walks through coastal landscape.
Vikings and Elves
Iceland is a place of living history in addition to unique natural beauty. Traditions and myths run deep here. For example, if locals want to build a new road, there’s one influential group that must be consulted first from Icelandic mythology: the elves.
Wild and geologically active Icelandic nature offers the chance to explore stunning landscapes with waterfalls amongst Europe's most powerful and awe-inspiring. Our expedition cruise offers excursions to a variety of islands, towns and settlements, spectacular views and interesting sites, all accompanied by our knowledgeable Expedition Team.
