Start planning your cruise and book your excursions to Ísafjörður

On the shores of Skutulsfjörður, on the northwestern point of Iceland, lies the ancient town of Ísafjörður, an MSC Northern Europe Cruises destination. Nearby, the spear-shaped island of Vigur is a pristine paradise, home to puffins, gulls, and a delightful sea lion colony.

 
MSC Cruises excursions offer plenty of exciting things to see including: 
 
• Dynjandi Waterfall
• Thingeyri: Old Traditions and Viking Culture
• Vigur Island
 
Cascading down the hillside of Arnarfjörður is the magnificent Dynjandi Waterfall. On an MSC Cruises excursion, you’ll enjoy a leisurely coach drive across stunning terrain to this epic natural wonder. Admire the waterfall’s incredible flow as it tumbles down the mountain. Stop to take pictures or wander the landscape of the remote but beautiful Westfjords.
 
The charming town of Thingeyri awaits you on an MSC Cruises excursion. Here, you’ll explore a land profoundly steeped in ancient folklore and enthralling Viking culture. Visit the Old Blacksmith’s Workshop which is now a fascinating museum. Watch the metalsmiths busy at work and learn more about its history. Next, stop by Thingeyri’s 'Viking Area' where modern-day Vikings battle, dance, and sing folk songs. Lastly, explore the riding arena in Sandar where you’ll admire the beautiful Icelandic horses.
 
The Island of Vigur is a charming green oasis bathed in the northern blue waters of the Ísafjarðardjúp Fjord. In spring, the isle becomes a nesting ground for countless bird species, and during summer, puffins, arctic terns, black guillemots, and eider ducks arrive in significant numbers. On this MSC Cruises excursion, you’ll enjoy a 30-minute boat ride before taking a stroll around the island to explore its natural beauty. Visit Viktoria House, Iceland’s only windmill, and the smallest post office in the country!

    A vacation in Iceland is like discovering another world. Even if you’ve imagined it, this island will amaze you.


    Not many people know that Reykjavík, the Icelandic capital, has an intense artistic and social life. Nor that the Icelandic nature is so luxuriant because temperatures in the summer are incredibly mild or that in the winter, when the skies are painted by the colours of the northern lights, it’s not as cold as one might think.

    Iceland is bound to attract you with its pools of boiling mud, the incredible geysers, the glaciers and the waterfalls, and more. Try indulging in bird-watching at Lake Mývatn, or take an excursion to meet the whales, Iceland’s sea is one of the best places in the world for watching these big cetaceans.
    If you’re attracted to ice, visit Jökulsárlón, the largest frozen lagoon of the country which forms where the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier meets the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. 


    And if you intend to relax, you should know that there are more than 170 geothermal pools in the country, like the splendid and therapeutic Blue Lagoon, about 40 km from Reykjavík, a large pool fed by a spring that pours out water at a temperature of between 37 and 39 °C, rich in minerals and with therapeutic properties.
