Trace the compass points of the Viking Trail on this 19-day voyage between Bergen and Reykjavik, showcasing the breath-taking vistas of the Norwegian Fjords and the elemental beauty of volcanic Iceland.

Sailing from Bergen as the Vikings did a thousand years ago, you’ll cruise the Hardangerfjord en-route to the Shetland Isle of Lerwick. Here, immerse yourself in Scottish tradition during a Scenic Enrich experience, complete with Celtic singers, Shetland fiddlers, and a Highland fling.

Heading west from Scotland across the Atlantic, watch as the distinct Icelandic seaboard appears on the horizon. Iceland is steeped in Norse mythology, and nowhere is this more evident than Isafjordur, whose Ósvör Maritime Museum tells the story of when the Vikings first arrived on Iceland’s shores.

In Husavik, you’ll board a traditional fishing boat for an exhilarating whale-watching cruise, or enjoy a tour of Vatnajökull National Park for a close encounter of Dettifoss waterfall. Our Discovery Team will take you beyond the tourist trail on Snæfellsnes Peninsula, revealing sparkling fjords and vast lava flows during an unforgettable Zodiac or helicopter excursion*.

After a revitalising dip in the famous Blue Lagoon, you’re invited to a performance of Icelandic culture and tradition in Thorlakshofn – the perfect way to honour your time in this stunning country.
