Words and Photos by Mike Jones

From the very beginning, Firebird was conceived to be able to accommodate the owner and his family who enjoy every minute of their time onboard together, whether that is cruising with friends or pushing the performance boundaries at the Mediterranean Superyacht regattas. The comprehensive and high-end specification also satisfies the stringent demands of charter guests, be it in the Mediterranean, Caribbean or even the Arctic, with every eventuality and creature comfort catered for. With one of the family’s great passions being off-piste skiing, a passion that has taken them all over the world, it was inevitable that they would combine two of their great loves.

Now with Firebird’s first season under their belt, they have gone in search of adventure inside the Arctic Circle, to the very north of Norway, ski touring in the famous Lyngen Alps and surrounding islands, a far cry from the crowded slopes and lifts of Europe’s major resorts.

No small undertaking, especially for what most would call a ‘bluewater’ cruising yacht, the waters in the Arctic may be clear, but they are very, very cold, and the weather sometimes quite unpredictable. The owner and the crew have gone to great lengths to prepare themselves and their yacht for her maiden Arctic voyage, even calling upon independent surveyors, to satisfy themselves that Firebird would be capable and worthy of the task. Passing with flying colours, a sure testament to her build, only a few small tweaks were required, along with several special customisations. It seems that no detail has been overlooked, with boot heaters installed in the lazarette, ski racks fitted in the sail locker, and on the foredeck she sports a new rugged tender suited to beach landings with groups of skiers and their cumbersome boots, each cabin is even stocked with several pairs of insulated slippers to keep any chills at bay.

Having already chartered a local yacht last year as part of a location scout for their extended trip in March and April this year, everyone, yacht, crew and owner are all more than well prepared for the conditions. From Andrey’s point of view there is no doubt that the choice of the 885 Raised Saloon variant was the right one, as it lends itself spectacularly to the scenery, making breakfast or afternoon tea quite an occasion with an inescapable panoramic view of the landscape around you.

The skiing itself is both diverse and thrilling, with routes and mountains to suit everyone from the armchair adventurer to the extreme enthusiast. The sense of achievement borne from scaling an Arctic peak, whilst your yacht is in clear view anchored in the Fjord below, is nothing short of an awe-inspiring and exhilarating experience. The skiing on the way back down is, quite simply, the icing on the cake, which incidentally is what will be waiting onboard for the intrepid and well-exercised skiers upon their return. Some of the descents are the skiing equivalent of an infinity pool, with a seemingly never-ending ridge of lovely fluffy and fresh powder snow dropping away into the sea. Mind-blowing. Picking an experienced guide who knows the local mountains is key to everyone’s enjoyment and piece of mind, and Andrey and his family have been skiing with renowned mountain guide Brian Farquharson for a number of years. He really knows his stuff, working closely with the captain to plan routes and itineraries through the Fjords, tailoring each day to the group as required, his knowledge is remarkably encyclopedic, even if his pronunciation leaves a little to be desired!

Offering something of a luxury ‘ski chalet’ experience at sea, the set-up is impeccable, and what could be better than a chalet that delivers you to a different mountain everyday? The scenery is overwhelmingly breathtaking, in the Fjords of Northern Norway, there are amazing views at every point of the compass, the water is ice cold and crystal clear, and the locals extremely welcoming. Few ski-accessible chalets are able to claim a potential view of the Northern Lights, but it is certainly on the cards whilst onboard, especially being so far away from any light pollution whatsoever. Any yacht in this beautiful landscape makes a great sight, but Firebird with her mid grey topsides and orange accents under full sail, surrounded by snow covered mountains is truly a wondrous spectacle.

The cruising grounds here are second to none, with peaks rising right out of the sea, quite a unique offering and a real contrast to the shallow, sandy anchorages of the Caribbean, northern Norway offers an entirely different proposition. Sheltered bays nestled in the Fjords, fishing village piers are more par for the course, and predictably the local salmon is as good as it gets. The salmon is something that Chef/Stewardess Mel puts to great use in her menus which are aimed to satisfy both your tastebuds and to fuel you for another day of Arctic exploration, be that by ski or sail.

Firebird is set-up to accommodate seven guests across four cabins (the office/snug converts to a comfortable large single cabin) in exceptional comfort. Onboard you will find that the crew takes immense pride in their work, presenting the yacht in immaculate condition at all times, whilst doing everything in their power to enhance the experience for everyone onboard.

11-day Iceland Circular Expedition Cruise Round Trip from Reykjavík

Iceland, past and present

In Reykjavík, you’ll get a taste of modern Iceland. Check out its stylish restaurants, boutiques, galleries, and museums that delve into Icelandic history and culture through the ages. On tiny islands and in coastal fishing villages, hear tales of elves and epic Viking sagas.

Volcanic landscapes, whales, and seabirds

Discover Iceland’s stark scenery, with active volcanoes, geysers, glaciers, mountains and waterfalls. Iceland offers the best whale watching in Europe at this time of year, from humpbacks to belugas. While observing the birdlife, we’ll be on the lookout for Atlantic puffins and many more species.

Relax in Reykjavík

Discover Iceland’s modern capital

Your Iceland expedition cruise starts in Reykjavík, a city full of art, culture, and history. Visit Laugavegur, the main shopping street, then head toward the striking Hallgrímskirkja Church. You could also explore the galleries and museums dotted around the city.

Once aboard MS Maud, a smaller ship built for more personal exploration, it’s time to settle in, meet your Expedition Team, and enjoy a laid-back welcome dinner.

Pre-Program

With so much to explore, consider arriving early to join one of our Pre-Programs and explore the Golden Circle or Icelandic Highlands.

fire and ice yacht

Snæfellsnes Peninsula

Gateway to spectacular Snæfellsnes

Time has stood still at Stykkishólmur, the small fishing town in Breiðafjörður bay. Here, the colorful houses stand in contrast to the distant mountains.

Nearby, you’ll find Snæfellsnes Peninsula National Park, with the ice-capped Snæfellsjökull volcano at the peninsula’s western tip. It’s nicknamed 'Little Iceland', for its wide variety of volcanic landscapes.

At the national park, visit Djúpalónssandur's black-sand beach and the Lóndrangar basalt cliffs. Ride a snowcat to the top of the Snæfellsjökull glacier, or take a guided coastal hike with a glacial cave tour.

fire and ice yacht

Beautiful Patreksfjörður

Visit a stunning beach, admire waterfalls, and go birdwatching.

Patreksfjörður is unforgettably beautiful. Learn about the fishing traditions in Europe’s westernmost village. You can even enjoy a dip in the town’s outdoor pool, which features wonderful fjord views.

Explore the surrounding area on a hike through the fjords or visit Rauðasandur beach and see seals. You can also join a tour of Dynjandi waterfalls, six combined falls that, together, comprise the largest and most spectacular in the Westfjords.

Birdwatchers shouldn’t miss a visit to Látrabjarg, where puffins, northern gannets, guillemots, and razorbills cling to Europe’s largest bird cliff.

fire and ice yacht

The Northwestern Region

Explore northwest Iceland expedition-style.

One of the best things about expedition cruising is the feeling of freedom. We plan to spend the day in Iceland’s northwestern region, but as conditions can vary, we won't know exactly what's in store until the day itself. Rest assured, your Captain and expedition team will find the best opportunities for adventure.

We may take you ashore in our small boats (RIBs) for a hike, swim, or beach clean-up. Or perhaps we’ll launch our kayaks to explore a pretty cove. Be ready for anything!

Don’t forget you can also join onboard lectures, visit the Science Center, get tips from our professional photographer, or soak in a hot tub!

Djúpavík’s old factory

Explore a ghostly factory and hike in magical surroundings.

There is an eerie charm about the remote village of Djúpavík at the edge of the Westfjords. The immense, abandoned herring factory contrasts with the stunning countryside. A guided tour of the old building will reveal all of its secrets. Inside its cavernous interior, huge machines rust away quietly, and the workers’ everyday objects sit forgotten on their desks.

Explore these magical surroundings on foot and take a short and invigorating hike to the waterfall just above the old factory. Looking down to the shore, you may spot the old, rusting ship from a previous era. This truly is a place of contrasts.

fire and ice yacht

Eyjafjörður to Akureyri

Explore Akureyri and see volcanic moonscapes.

Today we cruise along Eyjafjörður, Iceland's longest fjord, to Akureyri, Iceland's northern capital. It’s a prime area to see humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbor porpoises.

Stroll the interesting streets of Akureyri, which feature charming, colorful houses. Learn about the city’s history at the Akureyri Museum and visit Norðurslóð (Into the Arctic), a museum dedicated to Iceland’s settlement, culture, and daily life.

Further inland, visit the picturesque Goðafoss (‘God’s Waterfall’), where turquoise waters pound against black rocks. Seek out eider ducks and harlequin ducks at Lake Mývatn, one of Iceland’s most active volcanic areas.

fire and ice yacht

Grímsey’s puffins

Cross the Arctic Circle and see Atlantic puffins.

Grímsey is steeped in folklore, including tales of the island’s first settler, Grímur. This remote and windswept island is home to just 60 people and is renowned for its Atlantic puffin colonies.

Grímsey is probably best known for its proximity to the Arctic Circle, which actually cuts across the island – the only place in Iceland where it does so. You’ll have the opportunity to step across that line, hopping over to the Arctic and back.

Hike to the Orbis et Globus sculpture, a huge concrete sphere that is repositioned each year to follow the northward movement of the Arctic Circle. In fact, by 2050, Grímsey will lie outside the Arctic!

fire and ice yacht

Whale watching in Húsavík

Iceland's best whale-watching spot

Today, you’ll discover Húsavík, a fascinating town that is one of the best places in the world for whale watching.

Húsavík looks out over Skjálfandi Bay, a hotspot for humpback and minke whales, white-beaked dolphins, and harbor porpoises. The elusive blue whale even makes appearances here. Learn more about them at Húsavík’s Whale Museum.

You can also enjoy the geothermal waters at Geosea, which overlooks Skjálfandi bay, and pep yourself up with a beer at the local microbrewery.

fire and ice yacht

Hike in Bakkagerði

Local folklore and natural beauty

Your Iceland cruise continues to Bakkagerði, a tiny settlement off the beaten track. According to folklore, Bakkagerði is inhabited by a large population of local land spirits or elves, known as huldufólk (meaning 'hidden people').

This popular hiking area features lush valleys and gorgeous scenery among colorful rhyolite rocks. The coastal cliffs are home to fulmars, kittiwakes, eider ducks, and puffins. We may also visit the Atlantic puffin colony on Hafnarhólmi, a true gem for nature lovers and wildlife photographers.

fire and ice yacht

Heimaey's explosive past

Discover the town that defied a volcano.

Heimaey is the only inhabited island in the Westman Islands, off the Iceland’s southern coast. It has a fascinating history and still bears the scars of the powerful 1973 volcanic eruption that nearly destroyed the island.

Visit Eldheimar, a museum that features an excavated home frozen in time, and learn more about the eruption and its aftermath. You could also take a hike to find puffins at Stórhöfði, where nearly 8 million of them nest every summer. Don’t pass up the chance to climb Mount Eldfell to the volcano’s summit, where you’ll have incredible views of the town below.

fire and ice yacht

Reykjavík and beyond

Explore Reykjavík at your leisure.

Your Iceland expedition cruise concludes back in fascinating Reykjavík. This is a great chance to see the places you missed when you arrived.

Relaxing with friends in the geothermal waters of a heittur pottur is part of Icelandic culture. Before you leave, visit Iceland’s most famous place to do so: the Blue Lagoon. This is one of the true natural wonders of the world. Experience the blend of silica, algae, and minerals in its geothermal waters.

Post-Program:

You can also join our Post-Program and explore Iceland's beautiful south coast, with waterfalls, black-sand beaches, geothermal springs and majestic mountains.

Guest Speaker

Shore excursion or activity in each port of call + transfers included

In alliance with Smithsonian Journeys.

This cruise is part of a collection of PONANT voyages that are specially-tailored for English-speaking travelers who want to engage with the world. In addition to the usual elements of the PONANT experience, the listed price for these voyages includes transfers to and from the ship, talks and discussions aboard ship by world class experts, and a shore excursion or activity in each port of call that encourages guests to embrace the sights, sounds, tastes, and smells of the local environment and culture.

Discover the most beautiful and rugged landscapes on the  Icelandic west coast  during this spectacular  8-day voyage .

On  the edge of the Arctic , between vast glaciers, vertiginous fjords, volcanoes, and boiling geysers,  Iceland  offers a kaleidoscope of wild landscapes.

You will board Le Bellot in  Reykjavík , the world’s northernmost capital city. With its houses with colorful roofs and its lake that is home to countless ducks, the city offers a picture-perfect setting.

The first port of call on your cruise is Heimaey . This is the only inhabited island in the Westman archipelago. Choose to explore the volcanic island, which is summer home to millions of seabirds.

You will then discover the bay of Grundarfjördur , from where you may choose to explore the villages along the Snæfellsjökull glacier -capped volcano or embark on a whale watching excursion in search of orcas and humpback, minke, sperm, and pilot whales. 

Your ship will then reach  Grímsey , a small, hard-to-reach island where, in certain places, the volcanic rock forms  magnificent basalt columns . Sea birds such as guillemots and puffins reign here.

Le Bellot then sails for Akureyri , where an excursion to the otherworldly Lake Myvatn area offers the opportunity to explore the geothermal field of Namaskard to see mudpots, steam vents, sulfur deposits, boiling springs, and fumeroles.  Also see the spectacular Godafoss , the “Waterfall of the Gods.” Alternatively, choose to relax in the thermal baths at Húsavík.

At Isafjördur , explore Iceland’s seafaring history at the Maritime Museum and enjoy a performance of traditional Icelandic folk songs performed by a group of local singers. Or visit the abandoned village of Hesteyri , a 19 th -centurty whaling community located along some of the most rugged landscape in the country.

End on the outskirts of Reykjavík , where you’ll have the opportunity to travel the Golden Circle , consisting of three spectacular sights: Thingvellir National Park , Gullfoss Waterfall , and the Geysir Geothermal Area . Another option offers a second opportunity to go whale watching in search of humpback, minke, and sei whales.

The encounters with the wildlife described above illustrate possible experiences only and cannot be guaranteed.

Iceland’s capital stretches along the edge of a vast bay in the west of the country. Perlan , the “Pearl of Reykjavík”, a museum located on ’Oskjuhlið hill, offers a panoramic view of the lush, green landscapes. A little further, one can easily spot the signpost showing the way to the evangelical  Hallgrímskirkja  church, and to the historical centre where one can stroll along the Skólavördustígur and the Laugavegur, two lively streets with charming small shops.

Sailing around Surtsey Island

June 16, 2024 - Sailing around Surtsey Island

Arrival 6/16/2024 Departure 6/16/2024

A small drop of basalt in the North Atlantic Ocean, Surtsey is a volcanic island formed by a submarine eruption that lasted from 1963 to 1967, off the Westman Islands to the south of Iceland. The island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. To protect its virgin ecosystem against human presence , it is forbidden to land there. Only a few scientists have access to Surtsey to study the plant and animal colonisation of the island. Mosses, fungi and lichens were followed by vascular plants. Around 300 invertebrate species and 90 bird species have gradually colonised it. While sailing around Surtsey, you will enjoy a unique panorama of this extraordinary island’s contours.

Heimaey, Vestmannaeyjar

June 16, 2024 - Heimaey, Vestmannaeyjar

Arrival 6/16/2024 mid morning Departure 6/16/2024 late afternoon

This land seated off the southern coast of Iceland is the largest of the Vestmann islands, and is the only inhabited island in the archipelago. The steep Edfell volcanoes and the green prairies of Herjólfsdalur offer rich contrast of nature. On the Stórhöfði road, look out over grey sand beaches and cliffs carved out by the Arctic ocean. From here, you can also see the bronze landscapes of the mountaintops. You could visit Eldheimar , an ultra-modern and interactive museum which traces the volcanic eruption has experienced Heimaey in 1973.

Grundarfjördur

June 17, 2024 - Grundarfjördur

Arrival 6/17/2024 midday Departure 6/17/2024 late afternoon

This secret boreal hideaway is located at the foot of the Kirkjufell, on Snaefellsnes peninsula. Arriving by boat means you will get a closer view of the lava-stone rock standing like a sentinel at the entrance to the bay; Grundarfjörður lies sheltered behind this cone-shaped rock. A stone’s throw from the jetty, crystal clear waters, tundra and beaches give onto the cerulean waters of Breiðafjörður. Scattered with its emerald-coloured lawns, this town, with its buildings that merge into the surrounding countryside, will most certainly win your favour.

Grímsey

June 18, 2024 - Grímsey

Arrival 6/18/2024 early afternoon Departure 6/18/2024 evening

Grímsey is the northernmost island of Iceland surging from the Arctic ocean, with the Arctic circle running through the island. Its contrasted contours are surprising. From Grímseyjarhreppur, the island’s only town located on the west coast, then heading due south, you can take in the beauty of the hillsides, lushly carpeted with moss and grass. On the rest of the coastline, imposing basalt cliffs  inhabited by sea birds stand proud.

Akureyri

June 19, 2024 - Akureyri

Arrival 6/19/2024 early morning Departure 6/19/2024 late afternoon

The elegant city of Akureyri is located very close to the Arctic circle, tucked away in the Eyjafjörður fjord. It displays a stunning palette of colours: blue waters in the harbour, bronze mountain ash on the squares and brightly-coloured houses in the historical centre. As you walk along the cobbled streets,  you will come across rows of terraces with wooden furniture. A vast stairway cut into the hillside leads up to the emblematic feature of the town, namely the Akureyrarkirkja church. The very beautiful botanical garden made possible by a microclimate offers the opportunity to discover the Icelandic flora as well as plants from all over the world.

Isafjördur

June 20, 2024 - Isafjördur

Arrival 6/20/2024 early morning Departure 6/20/2024 early afternoon

Your ship will take you to the heart of the fjords of North-West Iceland, a wild land of lost valleys and steep cliffs, where man struggles to survive. In this very isolated region we find the Isafjörður fjord, undoubtedly one of the most beautiful in the country, mainly for its relief, forged by many very ancient basaltic flows. The town of Isafjörður, which nestles at the back of its fjord, between imposing mountains, is a delightful little town that lives exclusively from fishing. The capital of the Western fjords, its old wooden houses bear witness to its past as a major fishing port.

June 21, 2024   June 22, 2024 - Reykjavík

Arrival 6/21/2024 early morning Disembarkation 6/22/2024 at 8:00 AM

View all excursions

The Volcanic Island of Heimaey

The Volcanic Island of Heimaey

The largest of Iceland's Westman Islands, Heimaey serves as summer home to millions of seabirds — puffin, fulmar, guillemot and others — whose eggs have traditionally been an important source of food for the islanders. You will observe many of them nesting on the tall cliffs that surround the harbor as your motorcoach sets off on an exploration of this rugged outpost in the North Atlantic.

Your route takes you first through the Herjólfsdalur Valley , where ruins of old farmhouses, some dating back to the 7th century, are found. Continue along the scenic western coast, where you can view the outer islands of the archipelago. The youngest of these, Surtsey, was formed in a volcanic eruption in 1963; it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Stop briefly at the puffin nesting ground of Stórhöfði for magnificent views over the island before the route back to the harbor takes you between two volcanic craters, the 5,000 year old Helgafell, “Holy Mountain”, and the considerably younger Eldfell, “Fire Mountain.” Eldfell erupted in 1973, forcing an evacuation of the entire population. During the six-month eruption, a massive operation was mounted to slow and control the lava flow by pumping seawater and spraying the leading edge. Although many houses were destroyed, the effort was successful in preventing the harbor from being closed. This story is documented in the recently opened Eldheimar Museum , where you will have the opportunity to see the excavated remains of a house buried for 40 years in ash.

  • We recommend you wear good and comfortable walking shoes and dress in layers. The walk up to the viewpoint at Stórhöfði is very steep and can be slippery.

Circumnavigation of Heimaey

Circumnavigation of Heimaey

Set out from the harbor in Heimaey in a local boat. Cruise past the cliffs surrounding the harbor and keep an eye out for the many different bird colonies that inhabit them. The Westman Islands have one of the largest varieties of sea bird species in Iceland, including puffin colonies of an estimated six to eight million birds. Nowhere else in the world can such a large number of puffins be found in such close proximity to civilization. In addition, the islands are home to one of the world's largest gannet and guillemot colonies. Numerous other species of nesting sea birds can also be seen here. Whales and other cetaceans are often sighted in the Westman waters, including orcas, dolphins, and porpoises. View the island, its cliffs, and their inhabitants from all angles as you sail into Klettshellir (Cliff Cave), an opening that can only be accessed by boat. After visiting the cave, complete your circumnavigation with a return to the harbor.

  • We recommend that you wear warm layered clothing with a waterproof outer layer. It is good to be prepared with hats, mittens, scarves, and sunglasses. Sunscreen is recommended on sunny days due to the reflection from the sea.

The Snaefellsnes Peninsula

The Snaefellsnes Peninsula

Upon leaving Grundarfjordur, your journey will take you through several small fishing villages along the famous Snæfellsjökull glacier -capped volcano. After a stop at Djupalonssandur, take a short refreshing walk to the shore of the Atlantic Ocean.

You will enjoy a unique experience discovering this fabulous and mystical glacier, which was made popular in 1864 by the French writer Jules Verne in his novel A Journey to the Center of the Earth, where he located the entrance to the subterranean journey inside the Snæfellsjökull crater: “Here we had entered the Earth by one volcano, and we had come out by another. And this other was situated more than twelve hundred leagues from Sneffels, from that drear country of Iceland cast away on the confines of the Earth…”

Afterwards, you will pass the cliffs of Londrangar on the way to the tiny fishing village of Arnarstapi, which offers splendid multicolor lava formations and an abundance of bird-life.

After a walk around, you will return to your ship through Budir , famous for its beautiful surroundings of black lava and its long beach of yellow sand. Continue over Frodarheidi Heath to the north coast of the peninsula and back to Grundarfjordur.

  • This excursion includes walking on uneven but essentially flat terrain. We recommend you wear a wind and waterproof jacket, bring a warm pullover and wear comfortable walking shoes, as the terrain can be slippery and steep. Please note that sites may be visited in a different order.

Whales of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula

Whales of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula

Iceland is one of the best, and fastest growing, locations in the world for whale watching . Its inlets and fjords provide excellent shelter and abundant food, and a variety of species are found here throughout the year. The most common sightings are of minke whales, porpoise, white-beaked dolphins, and humpback whales, but at least 23 different species have been spotted around the country.

This excursion begins with a 20-minute scenic drive to the small fishing village of Ólafsvík , where you board a twin-engine, specially outfitted boat for a three-hour adventure in the waters  along the northern coast of the peninsula. Cruising in the shadow of the magnificent Snæfellsjökull glacier , there is nowhere else in Iceland with a better chance to see toothed whales— orcas, sperm whales, and pilot whales —than along this coastline. The most common sightings here, as elsewhere in Iceland, are minke whales, humpback whales, and white-beaked dolphins .

  • We recommend that you wear warm layered clothing with a waterproof outer layer. It is good to be prepared with hats, mittens, scarves, and sunglasses. It can be very cold and windy out on the bay. Sunscreen is recommended on sunny days due to the reflection from the sea.

The Splendors of Lake Myvatn

The Splendors of Lake Myvatn

From the pier, your coach heads southeast toward Lake Myvatn , situated between dormant Hverfell to the east and a protected nesting area to the northwest that is home to tens of thousands of birds, including dozens of species of duck. The area around the lake is a stunning collection of geological treasures.

You pause first at the geothermal field of Namaskard , full of mudpots, steam vents, sulfur deposits, boiling springs and fumaroles. Next is the remarkable landscape of Dimmuborgir , where you will explore the wondrously surreal structures left behind when a massive lava lake collapsed into the marshes below. (This fantasy world was featured in HBO's Game of Thrones as the background of the Wilding camp.)

Lunch will be served in one of the local restaurants in Skutustadir , and you will have the opportunity to walk among the large number of pseudo-craters for which this small town is known.

After lunch, your coach heads back toward Akureyri , stopping along the way at Godafoss . Legend has it that in the year 1000, Thorgeir, chieftain of the Ljosavatn district and Lawspeaker of the ancient parliament, signaled his decision to adopt Christianity by throwing his statues of the pagan gods into the Falls. Hence the name Godafoss ("Waterfall of the Gods").

  • For this moderate excursion, we recommend you wear comfortable walking shoes (the terrain can be slippery), a wind and waterproof jacket and take a warm pullover. Please be aware that the order of the visits may be reversed.

The Thermal Baths of Husavik

The Thermal Baths of Husavik

Iceland is justly famous for its geothermal baths, and one of the very best of these natural healing pools is the focus of this full-day excursion.

On a scenic drive northward from Akureyri, your motorcoach stops at Godafoss , one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland. Legend has it that in the year 1000, Thorgeir, chieftain of the district and Lawspeaker of the ancient parliament, signaled his decision to adopt Christianity by throwing his statues of the pagan gods into the Falls. Hence the name Godafoss ("Waterfall of the Gods").

Continuing through the fascinating landscape of northern Iceland, you arrive at the coastal town of Húsavík , said to be the oldest settlement in the country. Situated just 60 miles south of the Arctic Circle, Húsavík is known for incredible ocean views, its colorful houses, a stunning wooden church, and since 2018, for the unique bathing experience at the GeoSea SeaBaths . Here you may relax in 100°F mineral-¬rich seawaters drawn from two nearby drill holes as you enjoy the spa's many amenities, including multiple infinity-edged pools, a man-made waterfall, and a swim-¬up bar. In the baths, you are surrounded by the tranquility of the Icelandic fjords, with views of the mountains to the west, Skjálfandi Bay just beyond the rim of your pool, and the Arctic Circle itself on the horizon.

After this rejuvenating experience for body and soul, return to your ship in Akureyri.

  • This is an easy excursion. The walking at Godafoss, although as much as half a mile over uneven terrain, is entirely optional. You will want to bring appropriate clothing for the thermal baths—swimwear and sandals—and as always, you will need protection from the sun. Please note: it is mandatory to remove clothing and bathing suits and shower before entering the thermal baths.

Icelandic Horse Show & Dairy Farm

Icelandic Horse Show & Dairy Farm

The Icelandic Horse , descended from the horses brought to the island by Norse settlers over 1,000 years ago, is a small and sturdy breed that has adapted well to the harsh conditions of the Arctic. It is known for its ability to handle rough terrain and for its skill as a swimmer, making it an ideal workhorse in the Icelandic environment.

A 20-minute drive through the Eyjafjarðarsveit Valley brings you to Brunir Horse , a family-run farm that breeds horses and puts on shows that present the Icelandic horse in its natural environment and showcase the breed's special skills. One of these special abilities is a fifth gait called tölt , unique to the Icelandic breed, where three of the horse's legs touch the ground at the same time, creating a stable and even pace that is very easy on the rider. Following the show, enjoy snacks prepared by the owners and their staff, and browse the small art gallery that displays works by the owner and other local artists.

A little further up the valley, Holstel Farm, a dairy farm and creamery , will welcome you, answer your questions about farming in this remote region, and invite you to sample some of the 20 different flavors of ice cream made from the milk produced at the farm. Guests unable to eat dairy can choose a sorbet instead. Following this sweet dessert, enjoy a panoramic drive back to Akureyri and your ship.

  • This is an easy excursion, where the amount of walking is mostly at the guest's discretion. During the horse show, most guests prefer to stand on the grass close to the tracks, but guests who prefer to sit can opt to stay on a balcony overlooking the field. Because weather in Iceland is unpredictable, we recommend waterproof outerwear in addition to sturdy shoes.

Traditions of the Westfjords Peninsula

Traditions of the Westfjords Peninsula

Your excursion begins with a drive along a narrow coastal road to the tiny town of Bolungarvik and to the Osvor Fisherman's Hut . Consisting of a series of old turf-and-stone fishing shacks restored in 1988, the hut houses a variety of relics that tell the story of how arduous life was for the men and women who eked out an existence by catching and salting fish before the technological innovations of the 20th century.

The village of Bolungarvik itself is nestled in the heart of a spectacular bay surrounded by mountains and bathed by the Isafjardardjup or "Djup" fjord, the largest on the Westfjords Peninsula. The nearby Hólskirkja ("church on the hill") contains several interesting pieces, including two grand bells meant to drive away the demons who live on the heath. Your visit here features a short musical program of traditional Icelandic folk songs performed by a local group of singers.

On your return to Isafjördur, pass through the historic old town and its 18th-century buildings to reach the Maritime Museum . The museum is a monument in itself, comprising several buildings that date to the 1780s. As you browse the collections, you will enjoy a tasting of local specialties such as Schnapps, dried fish and locally canned fish cooked the Icelandic way.

  • For this excursion, we advise you to wear comfortable shoes, to protect yourself from the sun and to bring a warm and waterproof jacket. Please note the order of the visits may change.

The Abandoned Village of Hesteyri

The Abandoned Village of Hesteyri

A visit to the village of Hesteyri , on the southern edge of Iceland's northernmost peninsula, is an opportunity to see some of the most rugged landscape in the country and to get a sense of the lives of those a century ago who tried to eke a living from this unforgiving environment.

Accessible only by boat and only in the summer months, the area's first human habitation dates from the end of the 19th century, when Norwegian whalers set up a camp here, which was closed down in 1915 when Iceland banned whaling in its waters. In the mid-1920s, a Reykjavik company converted the station to a herring factory , which in its turn ceased operation due to overfishing in 1940. Local residents began to leave Hesteyri in search of employment elsewhere, and by 1956, the village was completely abandoned.

Today, Hesteyri serves as a base for hikers exploring the remote reaches of the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve , and it also welcomes visitors interested in its unusual history. Your guide will lead you on a short hike around what remains of the village—about 10 houses mainly used as summer homes by the descendants of earlier villagers and the remains of the church that once served the community. You will also learn about the flora and fauna that led to the creation of the Reserve. The tour ends at the Old Doctor's House , which has been converted to a guesthouse and café for the summer months, where you can enjoy a hearty meal of Icelandic pancakes and traditional rye bread.

  • This is a moderate excursion, involving walking a total of approximately 1.25 miles over uneven terrain. You should wear sturdy, comfortable shoes and protect yourself from the sun. Layered clothing, including a waterproof jacket for the boat ride to and from Hesteyri are also recommended.

Iceland's Golden Circle

Iceland's Golden Circle

This classic excursion encompasses Iceland's “Big Three” attractions— Thingvellir, Gullfoss and Geysir . Collectively known as the Golden Circle, these sites, within easy driving distance of Reykjavik, provide an overview of the scenic wonder for which Iceland is justly renowned.

Your journey begins with a drive inland to Thingvellir National Park , which ranks at the top of Iceland's most visited places and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2004. Occupying a vast lava plain of green moss and wild flowers, Thingvellir has been revered by Icelanders since the year 930, when the oldest legislative body in history, the Althing, first convened here. During your visit, take special note of the Law Speaker's rock and of the remains of the turf shelters that were once used as dwellings during the two-week assemblies of the Althing at the height of summer every other year.

Leaving Thingvellir your tour continues over Lyngdalsheidi heath and through the fertile farmlands to the south, where you discover the most beautiful waterfall of the country, the "Golden Waterfall" of Gullfoss . This is where the river Hvita drops 96 feet in two cascades, creating an awesome spectacle.

At the Geysir area, you will encounter a remarkable collection of hissing hot springs, bubbling mud puts and geysers. "Strokkur," the most active geyser, spouts water and steam every few minutes. Here, amid these remarkable geothermal phenomena, enjoy a buffet lunch of soups, salads, meats and vegetables.

After lunch, return to Hafnarfjördur through the Grimsnes region, stopping in Hveragerdi, where geothermal energy has been used to power an extensive greenhouse industry. Continue to the Pearl, a glass dome built atop giant tanks that store hot water for metropolitan Reykjavik. The Pearl's viewing deck affords panoramic views of the city.

  • For this moderate excursion, we recommend you wear comfortable shoes, a wind and waterproof jacket, a hat and sunglasses and you take a warm pullover. Please be aware that the order of the visits may be altered and that this excursion includes several long drives of 1 hour - 1.5 hours.

Reykjavik Whale Watching

Reykjavik Whale Watching

Iceland is one of the best, and fastest growing, locations in the world for whale watching . Its inlets and fjords provide excellent shelter and abundant food, and many species are found here throughout the year. The most common sightings are of minke whales, porpoise, white-beaked dolphins, and humpback whales, but at least 23 different species have been spotted around the country.

Your adventure begins with a drive to the center of Reykjavik's harbor, from where you set off on a three-hour cruise to the outer stretches of the harbor and beyond in search of the humpback, minke, and sei-whales that feed and frolic here. Your boat is equipped with a powerful double-engine that enables speeds up to 20 knots, allowing it to cover large areas in a relatively short time as your captain and crew study the horizon for signs of activity.

The ship is equipped with a dining room and bar, and there is ample seating on the ship's deck for those who want to enjoy the scenic Icelandic landscape from the sea.

  • We recommend that you wear warm layered clothing with a waterproof outer layer. It is good to be prepared with hats, mittens, scarves, and sunglasses. Even though the weather in Reykjavik is warm it can be very cold and windy out on the bay. Sunscreen is recommended on sunny days due to the reflection from the sea.

Tastes of Reykjavik

Tastes of Reykjavik

A 20-minute drive from the pier brings you to the Harpa Concert Hall on the harbor in Reykjavik, where you meet your guide for a three-hour culinary journey through the city's historic streets.   Savor some of the many different flavors of Iceland as you stop at local establishments ranging from food trucks to fine dining restaurants, sampling distinctive dishes that showcase Iceland's rich culinary heritage, emphasizing locally sourced ingredients and traditional recipes that have sustained the Icelandic people for centuries. From comforting, time-honored dishes like grass-fed, free-roaming lamb and fresh Arctic Char, to delectable street food, including the famous Icelandic Hot Dog Stand , experience Iceland's eclectic food scene.

Along the way, your guide will talk about food, of course, but will also point out important landmarks and say a bit about their history, as well. The tour ends next to emblematic Hallgrímskirkja Church , the largest church in Iceland and among the tallest structures in the country, where you will meet your driver for the ride back to Hafnarfjordur and your ship.

  • This is a moderated excursion, involving a total of about 1.25 miles of walking over mostly paved and flat surfaces. Sturdy, comfortable shoes are recommended. And layered clothing with protection from both sun and rain are desirable.

Like the other ships in the PONANT EXPLORERS series, Le Bellot has been designed to provide absolute comfort for its passengers, even at the heart of the world's most remote and isolated regions. Racy lines, state-of-the-art equipment , a refined design, a softly muted and at the same time convivial ambiance together with a deliberately restricted number of cabins all contribute to the modernity of Le Bellot , a unique ship in the world of cruising.

The best superyacht fireplaces

Fireplaces on superyachts are a technical challenge, but when properly designed they can provide a stunning centrepiece for the saloon, instantly warming the atmosphere on board. To get into the festive spirit as the weather gets colder, BOAT rounds up the very best yachts with fireplaces, starting with the golden-hulled Stefania ...

Avocette III

After lying unused for the best part of a century, Avocette III underwent a transformation under the supervision of Bill Morong of Yachting Solutions. While preserving the classic, Gatsby-esque 1930s exterior design from period drawings, the interior was totally refurbished. The pièce de résistance is a working, stainless-steel fireplace that the owner himself dug up in a small London shop. The fireplace is the centrepiece of the yacht’s convertible saloon/master at amidships.

This fireplace in the main saloon of this 66.5 metre classic is one of three found on board. There are also fireplaces in the owner's saloon and the formal dining room. The fireplaces on board Haida 1929 “burn small blocks that are like biofuel, which are the same sort of fireplaces that would be installed in apartments in New York City”, Captain Daan de Witt explained. Unlike some onboard “fireplaces” that use steam and LED light to produce a fire-like effect, the biofuel used on Haida 1929 generates some real warmth.

More about this yacht

You’ll warm to any one of the four fireplaces on board Kismet , but our personal favourite is the main deck firepit - by far the best spot to gather and enjoy pre-dinner aperitifs. Launched in July 2014, this 95 metre Lürssen took a major honour at the 2015 World Superyacht Awards , claiming top spot in the Displacement Motor Yachts of 1,300GT to 2,999 GT of 75 metres and above category. Having already built the first Kismet , now named  Global , owner Shahid Kahn knew what was required when he decided to build a new bigger, better yacht: a winning combination .

Owner Jan Verkerk was instrumental to this ice-breaking explorer yacht's rebirth at Icon Yachts and his antarctic cruising plans necessitated plenty of cosy spaces to warm up after a day out in the cold. The elaborate main deck fireplace is the most notable example on board 77.4 metre Legend , with ornate fish sculptures and dark woodwork contrasting with the plush white armchairs, but there are also several steam-powered Opti-myst fires on board this remarkable and rugged globetrotter.

Yachts for charter

Panoramic views aren’t the only sizzling feature in the upper saloon of  Westport 130 Far Niente ; the lovely electric fireplace will spark interest, too. Built from GRP and with a top speed of 24 knots, this superyacht was designed by  William Garden , with Westport's in-house design team collaborating with Halffman Designs on the interiors of the 39.62 metre superyacht. She has accommodation for up to ten guests split across five staterooms, with additional space for seven crew members.

Yachts for sale

The spacious skylounge on board 40.52 metre Serenity was designed in a gentleman's club style, complete with a fully stocked bar and humidor. However, it is the superyacht fireplace that steals the show, as its shimmering electric glow catches the eye from all angles. Launched in 2016 by IAG Yachts , Serenity was styled inside and out by Evan K Marshall .

At the forward end of the dining room on  Serene  is a magnificent glass-enclosed gas fire pit. This 133.9 metre Fincantieri had her interiors styled by Reymond Langton Design and boasts 4,500 square metres of interior space. Other amenities throughout her seven decks include a hangar and two helicopter landing pads, a large salt water swimming pool which can accommodate service craft and a submarine with a diving depth of up to 100 metres.

Ramp up the romance and snuggle up next to this marble-finished 19th century English fireplace in the forward dining saloon of 100 metre superyacht  Attessa IV . Originally built in 1999 by Hayashikane , Attessa IV was  masterfully rebuilt by her loving owner Dennis Washington, for whom redoing yachts is his passion, pleasure and relaxation. The puzzle he worked on was how to keep such a large vessel intimate, both inside and out. To control the vastness of the space, he envisioned  Attessa IV  as having a waist at the area of the central ventilation and exhaust trunks amidships, and flares to widen the side decks fore and aft.

Sit back and ignite the feeling of relaxation in the large seating area forward of the dining table on Solandge , complete with an imposing marble-clad fireplace. This superyacht was launched in 2013 and can accommodate 12 guests in eight cabins, including a dedicated owner's deck . The contemporary interior of this 85 metre Lürssen, designed by Aileen Rodriguez , has classical touches and a mix of rare materials including 49 stone selections and 33 exotic woods. Solandge is also notable for having two  standout cinemas  on board.

Interior designer Reymond Langton made sure  Elysian  resembled an intimate home — including the snug fireplace in the main saloon. Designed by Espen Øino , this 65.8 metre  Lürssen  is one of the smaller yachts to be launched by Lürssen but is high-tech and highly original , having been built strictly for family use.

Ground Vehicle model, damage model, characteristic and weaponry changes

  • 14.5mm KPVT — Armour penetration calculation has been transferred to the Jacob de Marre formula.
  • The coefficients of the Jacob de Marre formula for metal-cored machine gun ammunition have been refined. Penetration of 12.7 BS-41, 14.5 BS-41, 15mm H-PzGr rounds has been increased.
  • BMP-2M, BMD-4, PUMA, M3A3 Bradley — Air target tracking has been added.
  • VAB SANTAL - Comment for the vehicle: our players have provided extensive and useful information as a result of their analysis it was decided to further refine the model of the vehicle. The modifications will consist of changing and refining the model for launchers, aiming devices and the turret used but retaining the current chassis model. Since most of the changes are made to the appearance of the model and will not affect battle characteristics after making them, it was decided that the vehicle will be added in this update in the current form with the characteristics corresponding to the real model of the turret and fire control system. When the fixes for the vehicle will be ready they will be applied to it. Thank you for your consideration.
  • Jagdpanther (all) - Designations have been clarified: Bfw.Jagdpanther -> Bfw.Jagdpanther G1, Jagdpanther -> Jagdpanther G1.
  • Jagdpanther G1 - ammo capacity has been reduced from 60 to 49 rounds. Source: Jagdpanther, plan of ammunition Storage. UK Motion studies docs.

Other changes

  • The mechanism of accruing RP in the system of the rewards for useful actions (already used in air SB and helicopter battles) has been changed. Now RP will be awarded in the same way as SL - for each time interval and not once at the end of the mission.

“I thought you may be interested in a couple photos of your Munson Fire Boat in action during fire suppression operations. Susquehanna Hose Company is very pleased and proud that the boat and fire pump performed exceptionally well during this devastating incident.  The pump provided continuous water flow for approximately six hours, suppressing the fire and protecting the exposures.  Multiple fire department crews were able to contain the fire to the building of origin.  Fire boat crew played a significant role in controlling the fire and preventing involvement of the exposure buildings.  All occupants were accounted for with only minor injuries.  The fire building was a total loss: however, the exposure buildings suffered only minor exterior damage. 

Thanks to all at Munson for standing behind your product, and special Thanks to Justin Lagerwey for his time and dedication to keeping the customer supported.”

Scuba boat captain given four year prison sentence in fire that killed 34 people

Jerry Boylan

A federal judge on Thursday sentenced a scuba dive boat captain to four years in prison and three years supervised release for criminal negligence after 34 people died in a fire aboard the vessel.

The  Sept. 2, 2019, blaze  was the deadliest maritime disaster in recent U.S. history, and prompted changes to maritime regulations, congressional reform and several ongoing lawsuits.

Captain Jerry Boylan was found guilty of one count of misconduct or neglect of ship officer last year. The charge is a pre-Civil War statute colloquially known as seaman’s manslaughter. It was designed to hold steamboat captains and crew responsible for maritime disasters.

Family members pleaded with Judge George Wu to give Boylan the maximum 10-year sentence in an impassioned hearing. Many cried, and Robert Kurtz, father of the sole deckhand killed, Alexandra Kurtz, brought a small container with him up to the lectern to address Boylan and the court.

“This is all I have of my daughter,” he said.

Yadira Alvarez is the mother of 16-year-old Berenice Felipe, who volunteered at an animal shelter and dreamed of becoming a marine biologist, and was the youngest of the 34 victims killed on the boat.

“He’s not a victim. He is responsible for my daughter not being here,” Alvarez said, while sobbing in court. “Can you imagine my pain?”

During the hearing, Boylan’s attorney read a statement aloud to the court in which he expressed his condolences and said he has cried every day since the fire.

“I wish I could have brought everyone home safe,” the statement said. “I am so sorry.”

In determining a sentence, Wu said he took into account Boylan’s age, health, the unlikelihood of recurrence and the need for deterrence and punishment.

He said while Boylan’s behavior was reckless, the guidelines for sentencing would not warrant a 10-year sentence.

“This is not a situation where the defendant intended to do something bad,” Wu said.

The defense had asked the judge to sentence Boylan to a five-year probationary sentence, with three years to be served under house arrest.

Boylan’s appeal is ongoing.

Hank Garcia, whose son Daniel was among the victims, said he is not a vengeful person but he and other family members don’t want something like this to ever happen again.

“We all have a life sentence,” he told the court. “We are having a life sentence without these people that we love.”

The Conception was anchored off Santa Cruz Island, 25 miles (40 kilometers) south of Santa Barbara, when it caught fire before dawn on the final day of a three-day excursion, sinking less than 100 feet (30 meters) from shore.

Thirty-three passengers and a crew member died, trapped in a bunkroom below deck. Among the dead were the  deckhand, who had landed her dream job ; an environmental scientist who conducted research in Antarctica; a globe-trotting couple; a Singaporean data scientist; and a family of three sisters, their father and his wife.

Boylan was the first to abandon ship and jump overboard. Four crew members who joined him also survived.

“While today’s sentence cannot fully heal their wounds, we hope that our efforts to hold this defendant criminally accountable brings some measure of healing to the families,” U.S. Attorney Martin Estrada said in a statement.

Thursday’s sentencing was the final step in a fraught prosecution that’s lasted nearly five years and repeatedly frustrated the victims’ families.

A grand jury in 2020 initially indicted Boylan on 34 counts of seaman’s manslaughter, meaning he could have faced a total of 340 years behind bars. Boylan’s attorneys argued the deaths were the result of a single incident and not separate crimes, so prosecutors got a superseding indictment charging Boylan with only one count.

In 2022, U.S. District Judge George Wu dismissed the superseding indictment, saying it  failed to specify  that Boylan acted with gross negligence. Prosecutors were then forced to  go before a grand jury again.

Although the exact cause of the blaze aboard the Conception remains undetermined, the prosecutors and defense sought to assign blame throughout the 10-day trial last year.

The government said Boylan failed to post the required roving night watch and never properly trained his crew in firefighting. The lack of the roving watch meant the fire was able to spread undetected across the 75-foot (23-meter) boat.

But Boylan’s attorneys sought to pin blame on  Glen Fritzler , who with his wife owns Truth Aquatics Inc., which operated the Conception and two other scuba dive boats, often around the Channel Islands. They argued that Fritzler was responsible for  failing to train the crew in firefighting  and other safety measures, as well as creating a lax seafaring culture they called “the Fritzler way,” in which no captain who worked for him posted a roving watch.

The Fritzlers have not spoken publicly about the tragedy since an interview with a local TV station a few days after the fire. Their attorneys have never responded to requests for comment from The Associated Press.

With the conclusion of the criminal case, attention now turns to several ongoing lawsuits.

Three days after the fire,  Truth Aquatics filed suit  under a pre-Civil War provision of maritime law that allows it to limit its liability to the value of the remains of the boat, which was a total loss. The time-tested legal maneuver has been successfully employed by the owners of the Titanic and other vessels, and requires the Fritzlers to show they were not at fault.

That case is pending, as well as others filed by victims’ families against the Coast Guard for what they allege was lax enforcement of the roving watch requirement.

After the sentencing Thursday, Susana Solano, who lost three of her daughters and their father on the boat, said she and the other family members hoped the judge would listen to their pleas.

“I’m extremely disappointed,” she said. “It’s just heartwrenching.”
