Norway & Iceland Cruise Holidays
Cruise holidays to Norway and Iceland take you to the heart of Mother Nature. To a world of vivid landscapes, punctuated by deep fjords, soaring peaks and cascading waterfalls. And the best way to unlock these treasures? Through a cruise. Picture yourself gliding through still waters with sheer rock faces just metres from your balcony, the scent of verdant flower meadows rich in the air. You can wave to the locals working on mountain-side farms, drink in the surrounding scenery with a coffee on deck and watch as spellbinding cities emerge on the horizon.
Norway & Iceland Cruise Holiday Highlights
For dramatic landscapes and an abundance of natural wonders, it’s hard to beat the fjords of Norway and Iceland. Some destinations simply have it all. Whether you’re a first-time cruiser or an experienced explorer, it’s hard to go wrong with iconic Norway and Iceland cruise that offer beauty, peace and fun in equal measure. There are plenty of shore excursions that will provide you with the opportunity to see the fjords from a different perspective, including in Ålesund, where you can explore them from up close by kayak. For something a little warmer, hot springs are just the ticket. Reykjavik’s Blue Lagoon is perhaps the most famous example, and for good reason: the water sits at a steamy 37-40°C and is rich in silica, minerals and algae that are believed to have wellbeing qualities.
When it comes to healthy eating, some might say that Iceland takes the top spot. With its clean air and unpolluted waters, Icelandic cuisine has some of the purest meat and freshest seafood you’ll ever enjoy. Taste the highland-ranging game-like lamb or try Iceland’s oldest – and most peculiarly still popular – traditional cuisine: fermented shark. Langoustine (Icelandic lobster) and dried fish are popular Icelandic treats you’ll usually find in small local eateries as well as the best restaurants in Reykjavik. For a healthy dessert, pop some sweet berries into skyr, the silky, sour Icelandic yogurt.
