Akureyri

Poraz Odina i Thora

Kada s vašeg broda siđete na odmor u Akureyriju, morate otići na izlet na jezero Myvatn. Na putu do tamo proći ćete kroz Eyjafjördur odakle možete uživati u predivnom pogledu na gradsku luku.
Prva točka na kojoj se treba zaustaviti je Godafoss gdje vode Skjálfandafljóta formiraju vodopad visok 12 metara. Prema legendi, u 999. ili 1000. godini vladari Islanda proglasili su kršćanstvo službenom religijom Islanda te su kipove nordijskih bogova (Odina, Thora i Freyra, kojem je vjerojatno posvećen vodopad) bacili u te vode. 

Obojeno staklo prozora crkve u Akureyriju (Akureyrarkirkja) govori o toj legendi. Dok nastavljate put po divljoj prirodi Islanda s nevjerojatnom raznolikošću boja koje variraju od svjetlozelenih poljana do crvenih minerala koji eruptiraju iz dubine otoka, stići ćete do pseudo-kratera Skutustaðir kojeg pokreće podzemna para nastala erupcijom prije 2.500 godina. 
 
Od tog mjesta možete doći do Dimmuborgira, nevjerojatnog labirinta lave gdje se usred čudnih oblika i formacija uzdiže Kirkjan, prirodna crkva s dva šiljasta luka portala te s pravom kapelom s oltarima koja se krije u unutrašnjosti. Svoj obilazak možete završiti kod kratera Viti, poznatog i pod nazivom Pakao, jednog od mnogih usta središnjeg vulkana Krafla
 
Ako se osjećate spremnima savladati strmi uspon iz njegovog unutrašnjeg jezera, moći ćete uživati u opuštajućoj toploj kupki. Ovdje ćete također pronaći i Askju, ogromnu kalderu koja se prostire na 50 četvornih kilometara, pustinju lave i najfinijeg pijeska koja podsjeća na mjesečevu prašinu: to je mjesto na kojem su astronauti Apolla 11 vježbali slijetanje na Mjesec. 
 
Prije povratka u Akureyri, ako ste znatiželjni, možete se zaustaviti kod kuće Djeda Božićnjaka, desetak kilometara prema jugu, predivnoj trgovini s božićnim igračkama i najvećim adventskim kalendarom na svijetu.

    Legends, lava landscapes and lakes... come and experience Iceland's unique scenery of surreal volcanic fields and magical cascading waterfalls. Leave the pier and drive to Godafoss, the 'Waterfall of the Gods' to admire the impressive falls and learn about the history of this site. The origins of this spectacular spot date back to 1,000 AD when a senior chieftain, Thorgeir, upon converting to the Christian faith, was compelled to hurl his Pagan god carvings into the waterfall. More natural treasures are in store are Lake Myvatn, one of Iceland's most geologically interesting lakes, due to its particularly shallow waters and rich nutrients that attract diverse flora and fauna. We will admire the craters at Skutustadir and the magnificent surrounding lava landscape with its strange formations, columns and arches. Another highlight of the tour will be the geothermal field, full of mud-pots, steam vents, sulphur deposits, boiling springs and fumaroles. Enjoy a short sightseeing tour of Akureyri before returning to the port. Lunch included. Please note: limited number of guides in languages other than English.

    Located in the heart of northeast Iceland about 105 kilometres south of the Arctic Circle, Lake Myvatn and its surroundings are among Europe's greatest natural treasures. You will admire the scenery around this exceptionally shallow lake which was formed by millennia of repeated volcanic eruptions which lend the area its surreal quality characterised by lava landscapes, crater formations and sulphur-streaked mountains. At the Myvatn Nature Baths, opened in 2004, you can literally immerse yourself in the scenery as you take a relaxing dip in the clouds of steam that rise from a fissure deep in the earth's surface. The warm waters will soothe both your spirit and your skin, in what will be truly unique and reviving experience. On our return to Akureyri we will stop for photos at the spectacular Godafoss cascade, the 'Waterfall of the Gods'. Please note: limited number of guides in languages other than English. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be provided in English only. For reasons of hygiene and in line with local customs, it is compulsary to take a shower without swimwear before entering the lagoon. Separate dressing rooms and showers for men and women.

    Leave the pier for a short transfer to Godafoss, "the Waterfalls of the Gods", which at 12 metres high is one of the most spectacular falls in Iceland.

    Adventurous, entertaining, exceptional and educational are all adjectives that aptly describe this unforgettable tour, which combines land-based sightseeing with a seaborne opportunity to spot marine mammals in their natural habitat. After leaving the port of Akureyri and crossing lush, sweeping valleys dotted with picturesque farms, you will reach the place known as the "whale-watching capital of Europe”, the coastal town of Húsavík. Apart from minke, killer and humpback whales, a large number of other marine mammals and seabirds are also regularly sighted when they come into the bay to feed. Examples include white-beaked dolphins, who will playfully swim alongside the boats, and puffins. The sea leg of the tour is followed by a delicious lunch served in a local restaurant and a visit to the award-winning whale museum, the Húsavík Whale Centre. The informative exhibits will tell you all you ever wanted to know about the lives these majestic ocean creatures lead in the frosty Icelandic waters. To round off your tour, a stop at the incredibly beautiful "cascade of the gods”, the Goðafoss Waterfalls - sporting a generous 30-metre breadth and a dizzying 12-metre drop - will give you time to take some memorable photos before you return to the port and your ship. Please note : wildlife sightings are likely, but cannot be guaranteed. Limited number of guides in languages other than English.

    The theme of childhood runs through this tour, so whether you want to relive your past or introduce younger passengers to some traditional folklore, this excursion to the home of a children's author and to Santa's House offers a lovely trip down memory lane! Akureyri is the cultural and commercial centre of northern Iceland; this small city boasts a flourishing art scene and a fascinating past.

We will then proceed to Nonni's Museum, the childhood home of the renowned Icelandic writer and Jesuit priest Jon 'Nonni' Sveinsson.

Our trip continues the child-friendly theme with a stop at Santa's House, a Christmas store selling festive items, open year round. We will end the tour with a short visit to Akureyri Church, the symbol of the town. Return to the port by bus or a walk through the town centre.

Island

Odmor na Islandu je poput otkrivanja nekog drugog svijeta.

Čak i ako ste ga zamišljali, ovaj otok će vas iznenaditi. Nema puno onih koji znaju da Reykjavik, glavni grad Islanda, ima intenzivan umjetnički i društveni život. Uglavnom ne znaju ni da je islandska priroda tako bogata jer su temperature po ljeti neobično blage ili da zimi, kada je nebo obojano bojama polarne svjetlosti, nije tako hladno kao što ljudi misle. 
 
Island će vas sigurno privući svojim bazenima kipućeg blata, nevjerojatnim gejzirima, ledenjacima i vodopadima, ali i s mnogim drugim stvarima. Pokušajte se prepustiti promatranju ptica na jezeru Mývatn ili krenite na izlet gdje ćete vidjeti kitove budući da su vode Islanda najbolje mjesto na svijetu za promatranje ovih velikih stvorenja. Ako vas privlači led, posjetite Jökulsárlón, najveću zaleđenu lagunu u zemlji koja je nastala tamo gdje se ledenjak Breiðamerkurjökull susreće s vodama Atlantskog oceana. 
 
Ako se želite opustiti, morate znati da u zemlji ima više od 170 geotermalnih bazena kao što je predivna i terapeutska Plava laguna koja se nalazi četrdesetak kilometara od Reykjavika. To je veliki bazen kojeg izvor opskrbljuje vodom temperature između 37 i 39 °C, a koja je bogata mineralima i ima terapeutska svojstva.
