Smaller-sized Balmoral takes you deeper into Iceland, to experience the sheer, awe-inspiring beauty of this dramatic, capricious island to the full. On your in-depth exploration, you’ll uncover landscapes and waterways out of reach to larger ships – see the best of the beautiful Westfjords, including the stunning bird haven of Vigur Island, during a visit to Ísafjörður; and at Seyðisfjörður, immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of towering mountains, stunning glaciers and magnificent waterfalls. As well as lesser-known treasures, some of Iceland’s greatest and most famous wonders also await you. While Reykjavik boasts architectural and cultural highlights galore, chances to explore the Golden Circle and watch the violent waters of geysirs and cascading waterfalls make their mark on the landscape, or indulge in pure relaxation in the Blue Lagoon’s geothermal waters, are sure to tempt. For an experience of a lifetime, you could also join a whale watching adventure – to look out for whales, dolphins and porpoises living freely in their unspoilt natural habitat – from Akureyri, which is also the starting point for tours to glorious Godafoss waterfall and Lake Mývatn.
