Icelandic Mosaic Cruise

On the 8-day Icelandic Mosaic cruise, discover the most beautiful landscapes while cruising the Icelandic fjords. Explore the iconic west coast of Iceland. On the edge of the Arctic, between vast glaciers, vertiginous fjords, volcanoes and boiling geysers, Iceland offers a kaleidoscope of wild and romantic landscapes.  

For this Iceland luxury cruise, embark and disembark in Reykjavik, the world’s northernmost capital city. With its houses with colorful roofs and its lake that is home to countless ducks, the city offers a picture-postcard setting. It also boasts numerous cultural treasures, particularly in the field of contemporary art, with the Reykjavik Art Museum.

Highlights of cruising the Icelandic fjords include a visit to the bay of Grundarfjordur, right near Kirkjufell. This stunning cone-shaped mountain possesses a unique charm and provides opportunities for beautiful photos. Experience Grímsey, a small, hard-to-reach island where, in certain places, the volcanic rock forms magnificent basalt columns. Birds such as guillemots and puffins reign supreme along this puffin cruise from Reykjavik. Discover Heimaey, the only inhabited island in the Westman archipelago. It is an exceptional place composed of volcanoes and almost-desert landscapes, where fishing is the main food source. Call at Akureyri, the capital of north Iceland, on the shores of the Eyafjörður fjord, very close to the Arctic Circle.

The 8-day Iceland Voyage: Land of Fire and Ice – is a themed departure from a collection of Ponant sailings operated in alliance with Smithsonian Journeys. The itinerary follows the same route as the main itinerary, but is tailored for English-speaking travelers who want to engage with the world. These Ponant | Smithsonian Journeys voyages uniquely include transfers to and from the ship, talks and discussions aboard ship by world-class experts and scholars, and a shore excursion or activity in each port of call that encourages guests to embrace the sights, sounds, tastes and smells of the local environment and culture. Look for the themed icon in the Rates and Dates table below.

On the full circumnavigation, additionally visit Siglurfjörður, to the north of the Tröllaskagi peninsula, whose mountainous silhouettes are reminiscent of French alpine reliefs. Founded in the 10th century, this small port reputed for herring fishing is also known for the beauty of its fjord. Also experience the magic of Hornafjörður, in the Vatnajökull National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, be dazzled by the beauty of the landscapes around the Jökulsarlon glacial lake. 

Passage on this Iceland luxury cruise is aboard either Le Bellot, a high-end Explorer vessel with a capacity of 184 guests, or 264-guest Le Boreal. These luxury French expedition ships offer refined and attentive service, a plethora of onboard activities and unrivaled elegance. Appreciate understated sophistication, an international feel and top-notch guides aboard these small expedition vessels. Explore breathtaking fjords, historic small fishing towns and magical landscapes off the ship, then return on board for 5-star hotel service and a plethora of activities such as performances, culinary tastings and enriching lectures.

Surtsey Island & Heimaey, Vestmannaeyjar

A small drop of basalt in the North Atlantic Ocean, Surtsey is a volcanic island formed by a submarine eruption that lasted from 1963 to 1967, off the Westman Islands to the south of Iceland. The island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. To protect its virgin ecosystem against human presence, it is forbidden to land there. Only a few scientists have access to Surtsey to study the plant and animal colonization of the island. Mosses, fungi and lichens were followed by vascular plants. Around 300 invertebrate species and 90 bird species have gradually colonized it. While sailing around Surtsey, enjoy a unique panorama of this extraordinary island’s contours.

The land of Haimaey, seated off the southern coast of Iceland, is the largest of the Vestmann islands and is the only inhabited island in the archipelago.

The small town is also the ideal departure point for discovering Ásbyrgi Canyon, a geological treasure that is the subject of Nordic legends. The horseshoe-shaped canyon is divided in two by a huge rock formation called Eyjan (island in Icelandic). Covered in trees, the canyon is said to have appeared when Sleipnir, the god Odin’s horse, set one of his eight hooves down on the ground.
