Iceland & Greenland Cruises
Venture to Iceland on an unforgettable Pullmantur Cruise and prepare to be bewildered by everything the natural elements have to offer.
When thinking of Iceland, it is easy to be misled into thinking the land is just covered in ice. This is not the case as Iceland is home to the conflicting elements of fire and ice, with lava and ash spewing from volcanoes such as Eyjafjallajökull and gushing hot springs to match the colder features such as the glaciers.
Nobody can be certain as to whether the Northern Lights or the Aurora Borealis will be visible during your cruise, but if they are you will be treated a stunning solar storm light display like no other.
The Eyjafjallajökull Cruise will lead passengers on a tour around Iceland, with the chance to view the active volcano which caused widespread disruption when it erupted in 2010.
Travelling around the southern tip of the island will take you to within viewing distance of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano. This mesmerising sight is covered by a sheet of ice, underneath which the volcano has been erupting and thus covering the country and sometimes Europe in a sheet of ash. It gets its name from a variety of features and shorter Icelandic words but generally means, by part translation, "Islands' Mountains' ice cap".
Be prepared to also be immersed in the culture of Iceland – with a variety of folklore tales and stories telling elves, trolls and the supernatural.
There is also a strong chance you will be able to witness a selection of whales on your cruise around Iceland, with the Blue Whale, Fin Whale and Humpback Whale in high abundance around Reykjavik.
On the west coast Iceland lays the country’s capital: Reykjavik, which is one the cleanest and greenest on earth. This is emphasised by the fact that over 80% of energy produced in Iceland comes from renewable sources such as geo-thermal and hydro-electric. Located on the southern shore of Faxaflói Bay; Reykjavik is the gateway to some of Iceland’s outstanding natural phenomena ranging from glistening glaciers to natural thermal pools. It is constantly being affected and shaped by earthquakes and volcanic activity but this cosmopolitan city is also home to two thirds of the country’s population and there is always plenty to see and experience.
