Guide to Iceland

A geographical phenomena teeming with wildlife and captivating scenery

Thundering waterfalls, hot springs and spellbinding vistas, Iceland is undoubtedly a destination that will captivate anyone looking for an adventurous yacht charter vacation. Lying on the constantly active geologic border between North America and Europe, Iceland is a land of vivid contrasts of climate, geography and culture that is waiting to be explored.

Begin your magical Nordic adventure in Iceland’s capital of Reykjavík. Cosmopolitan, modern and green, the city is abuzz with a profound culture, history and nightlife. Spend some time making the most of the atmosphere generated by this bustling city with its highbrow museums, vibrant bars and elegant shops all in close proximity to the port. The central core of streets around Laugavegur is where you’ll find a range of engaging museums such as the Saga museum that offers an accessible introduction to Iceland’s stirring past. Be sure to explore the quaint villages, marvellous restaurants and diminutive towns for yourself before heading out into the starkly beautiful wilderness of ice fields, waterfalls and lava. 

Spread either side of Reykjavík, southwestern Iceland extends barely 200km from end to end yet nowhere else are the country’s key elements of history and land so intertwined. Filled with some of Iceland’s most iconic scenery and explosive landscapes, this is where guests can enjoy the likes of the famous Blue Lagoon, Hekla Volcano and the hot springs at Landmannalaugar. More essential historical and geological features that you must see during your yacht charter include the original parliament site at Þingvellir, Geysir’s hot water spouts, and the immense Gullfoss waterfall.

An Iceland yacht charter allows you to access some of the most beautiful scenery with no restrictions. Kayak along the dramatic coastline and witness stunning sea arches up close from a perspective that isn’t possible any other way. Alternatively, grab your hiking boots and take a walking tour ashore to discover the vast wildlife and unique landscapes in the area. Why not take a helicopter tour for another perspective of the indescribable landscape and see if you can spot any whales from the air? There is no better whale watching than Iceland whale watching which is best to do near the beautiful and angelic Siglufjörður.

If you’re searching for unique experiences, there is no doubt that Iceland is definitely the destination for you. Take a plunge into the Silfra fissure and snorkel between tectonic plates, this is the only place in the world where you can actually swim in the gap between two continents. Formed by the Eurasian and North American plates slowly ripping apart, this area of water is 60m deep and reveals another intriguing part of Iceland that not many people have seen. In the evening, encounter an intimate dinner experience in the only Volcano on earth that you can go inside. A fine dining experience inside Thrihnukagigur Volcano’s magma chamber, what more could you ask for?

Quite simply unlike anything else, an Iceland yacht charter will leave you feeling energised, inspired and humbled thanks to the magnitude of sights and expereinces you can immerse yourself in during your vacation.
